Fusion F2
Key Features
Ultra-Portable—Two 2.5" SATA drives mounted side-by-side inside a 5.9" x 6.2" x 0.72" aluminum case are bus-powered for the ultimate in portability
Remarkably Fast—With its drives formatted as a RAID 0 volume, Fusion F2 delivers sustained data transfer rates up to 190MB/sec read and write, more than twice as fast as a pair of FireWire 800 drives
Field Video Certified–With its SATA data interface, Fusion F2 is the perfect storage companion for a portable video capture system that may saturate a notebook’s FireWire bus
Rugged and Reliable—Both drives are individually shock-isolated, virtually eliminating cross-coupled vibration, which, unchecked, can induce soft errors—a potential source of skipped frames
Cool and Quiet—Because of its efficient fanless design, if not for the cool blue LEDs, you may not even know that Fusion F2 was running
RoHS compliant
Compatible with Sonnet Tempo SATA Pro ExpressCard/34, Tempo SATA E4P, Tempo SATA X4P, and Tempo SATA E2P host controllers

Remarkable Performance, Diminutive Package

Speed, reliability, ruggedness, and convenience—these are the essential qualities of a storage system for on-location video capture. When you need to travel light, choose a Sonnet Fusion™ F2 portable SATA RAID storage system. Providing 1.5TB of storage in a small enclosure, Fusion F2 uses eSATA connections to deliver the fastest performance yet from a 2-drive portable storage system, with data transfer rates up to twice as fast as FireWire®. By connecting Fusion F2 through a SATA host adapter like Sonnet’s Tempo SATA Pro ExpressCard/34, your notebook’s FireWire 800 port is left open for use by an AJA® Video Systems ioHD, which requires dedicated use of FireWire bandwidth. Fusion F2 is cool, quiet, and energy-efficient: side-by-side placement of its drives increases the metal case’s cooling surface area, thereby eliminating the need for a fan, and allowing it to be bus-powered so it can be used even when no grid power is available.

Connected to a Sonnet Tempo SATA Pro ExpressCard/34 installed in a MacBook® Pro, and with its drives configured as a RAID 0 striped volume, the compact Fusion F2 is capable of up to 190 MB/sec sustained read and write data transfers, fast enough to handle multiple streams of ProRes 422 (HQ)!

Fusion F2 features two 3 Gb/sec eSATA data ports. By connecting via a direct SATA II interface with no bridge chip between the F2’s case and SATA II drives, there is no resulting communication slowdown, just the fastest data transfers possible.

Fusion F2 can be powered by your computer through a spare FireWire port using an included FireWire-to-power cable. For longer field work, Fusion F2 is compatible with all models of myPower ALL batteries from Tekkeon at an 8-19V setting. Sonnet recommends model MP3450i, which at a 56 Watt-hour capacity, should provide up to 9 hours of F2 run time. Other power options include another FireWire device, powered hub, or Sonnet's optional World Travel Power Adapter.


OS Compatibility
Platform independent—Works with Mac®, Windows® or Linux® computers with compatible host bus adapter installed
