Rosemount System 3 (RS3) DCS

Solid State Disks Ltd

Dependable Data Storage Solutions

We offer high reliability solid-state replacement drives in the process and manufacturing sectors in a variety of industries, including Food & Beverage, Chemicals, Oil & Gas, Power Generation, Pulp & Paper and Automotive.

If you have a Rosemount System 3 (RS3) DCS and is starting to fail, or you fear it might soon, we can help.

Our CF2SCSI™ SCSIFlash™ drives are used extensively within the manufacturing and process sectors to replace legacy drives with internal storage media, such as magnetic HDDs and SSDs, and/or which use removable media, such as magnetic tapes, optical disks (CD / DVD), floppies and solid-state memory cards.

Host system: Rosemount RS3 “Rosemount System 3 (RS3) DCS”

Emulated drives:

SCSI QIC VIPER 150 ( Tape drive)

Seagate ST34520N ( 4.5GB HDD)

Qantum XP34550S (4552MB HDD)

The flash drives can generally be used in any 68020 or 68040 based console with the following minimum software revisions:

Boot Revision and Program Revision are shown in the Command Console screen (CCC).

OI Processor       Boot Rev. Prog. Rev.
68020 9.26 18.03
68040 10.04 18.03


Our drive will emulate the behaviour of your legacy drive. This means your host system requires no changes and it will treat our drive as if it were the original part. In addition, you benefit from the high reliability, improved performance (such as fast and simplified memory erase for security) and reduced noise and power consumption that all come through switching to latest technology solid-state memory.

Also, all our CF2SCSI™ SCSIFlash™ drives can be fitted with Ethernet ports, enabling them to be networked and accessed through our Windows (7 or higher) Flash2GUI memory management software.

Where to next?

What is CF2SCSI™ SCSIFlash™?

Our drive solves the growing and increasingly expensive problem of repairing or replacing ageing and failing SCSI-based 2.5-inch, 3.5-inch and 5.25-inch hard disk drives, magneto optical drives, quarter-inch tape drives and floppy disk drives on computer-based legacy equipment used in telecoms and other industries.

Combining proven SCSI drive architectures (SASI, SCSI-1, SCSI-2) with industry-standard, solid state Compact Flash (CF) card technology our CF to SCSI (CF2SCSI™) SCSIFlash™ is a solid-state drop-in replacement for any style of SCSI-based drive. Moreover, we can accommodate a variety of connector/interface types including, but not limited to, Pertec, QIC DAT, DLT 3490, Jazz, ZIP and Bernoulli.

Our drives are completely programmable, enabling the SCSI driver implementation nuances of the original equipment manufacturers to be fully emulated. This means you won’t have to make any changes to your system. Our drives are truly swap-in replacements.
