6 pin high speed serial. Gold plated for quality. Staggered pins to ensure ground connects first.SSDs can be used in a similar way to floppy disks, with a standard MS-DOS file structure and format, that can be plugged in and out of Psion hand held computers. Their software and compatibility however make them faster and more reliable than floppy disks and with up to 8 megabyte memory capacity, they also store considerably more data. Storing data on a SSD enables internal memory to be freed up allowing Psion terminals to operate more quickly and to run powerful programs that have heavy requirements for memory storage.

Fits ALL Psion Workabout modells / ALL Psion Series 3
furthermore: Psion HC-Range, PC-Reader-Drive, Siena with SSD-reader

Complete Data Security

Using a Solid State Disk means information collected is stored securely and the data is completely safe from accidental loss, until it is downloaded onto the main computer system. Encased in steel to provide electromagnetic shielding, SSDs are designed to withstand the extreme conditions that can often destroy other types of storage media. And with no moving parts and nothing mechanical to crash, wear out or require maintenance, they are physically much tougher and robust than floppy or hard disks.
Psion Solid State Disks (SSDs) provide enhanced data storage and security for users of the Psion Workabout range of computers. Designed specifically for the harsher environment in which hand held computers are often used, SSDs offer greater protection of data against accidental damage or theft.
