Supports office operations around the clock

Hardware ensures superior dependability

-Air flow chassis suppresses high temperatures

The design of the TS5200DS and ventilation fans help ensure air flow, which is critical in holding down temperatures inside the case. The fans used are extremely quiet. The unit also monitors temperatures within the case and automatically regulates the fan speed for quiet yet effective cooling.

-Utilizes specially designed, highly reliable power supply unit

The components are painstakingly designed to handle high-temperature environments and extended operation. The highly reliable power supply is capable of withstanding continuous operation, 24 hours a day. Business users with systems running continuously for long hours can use the TeraStation with complete peace of mind.

-Highly reliable fans

The fans used in this unit feature highly reliable double ball bearings. Should they ever fail, the fans can be replaced without opening up the TeraStation.

-Front panel dust filter

The filter prevents dust from getting inside the unit, which reduces the load on the fan and contributes to more stable operation.

Hot swap support—replace disks without powering down

The TS5200DS drives are hot-swappable, so they can be replaced in the event of a hard drive failure, with no need to switch off the power. The TS5200DS is designed to minimize effects on the system when disks are replaced. Even while the drive is being replaced, the disks other than the failed HDD are configured in a RAID array. This allows the system to be used as usual, so the process creates no additional obstacles to normal business operations.

Port trunking improves redundancy through duplication

The TS5200DS is equipped with two LAN ports. Use of two LAN cables ensures an alternative route for transmissions and provides the LAN with redundancy for more reliable communications.
Port trunking also enables link aggregation, with two LAN cables functioning as a single cable. Using the bandwidth of two cables
increases data transfer speeds.

UPS interfacing supported—safely shut down multiple NAS units with on UPS

The TeraStation supports interfacing with UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) units manufactured by APC, Omron, and Schneider Electric. This proactive measure helps prevent loss of data and other problems resulting from unexpected power failure due to momentary power outages or tripped circuit breakers. Running off of a UPS also allows the TeraStation to be shut down safely if any interruption in the external power supply occurs.
D-Sub 9 pin or USB ports can be used as communications ports for the UPS.

When multiple TeraStations/LinkStations are connected, the network linking function allows them to be shut down safely from a
single UPS, with no need for power distributors or multiple UPS devices.

Other Features

Setup is simple, the settings panel easy to understand

The TeraStation's setup and settings panels feature an intuitive design that makes operation simple. These TeraStations also include a new interface for enhanced usability.

Features USB Print Server function

The TS5200DS includes the "Print Server" function that lets multiple computers share a single printer through the network.
This allows printers, even those without any LAN ports, to be used as networked printers.
