Visual SCSI Explorer

 

Visual SCSI Explorer application runs on Windows operating system platforms and is intended for advanced SCSI device testing.

Application visualizes the host SCSI controller and device configuration as controller-device tree and properties. It is possible to rescan SCSI buses and to dynamically update the SCSI device list. Application functional interface is optimized for Media Changer, Tape Drive, Disk, and Multi-Media devices. Raw CDB feature allows user to execute any SCSI command for SCSI device of any type. Application visualizes the process of SCSI command execution, logs the command parameters, the outbound and inbound command data and parses them.

Application automates routine SCSI device test tasks by using service procedures and JScript and VBScript scripting languages. Service procedures implement the predefined sequence of SCSI commands for the simple testing tasks. The scripting helps to automate the execution of arbitrary SCSI command sequence for the complex testing tasks. Application can run multiple service procedures and scripts for different devices at the same time.

The range of the potential customers includes the next main groups.

Visual MODBUS Explorer

 

Visual MODBUS Explorer application runs on the Windows operating system platforms and is intended for advanced MODBUS device testing.

Application visualizes the host MODBUS hardware configuration and allows the user to work with the multiple MODBUS devices at the same time. Application allows the user to manually execute the MODBUS commands with the different parameters and data. Application visualizes the process of MODBUS command execution, logs the command parameters, the command completion status, the outbound and inbound command data and parses them.

The product is targeted for the next main groups of the potential customers.

Virtual Medium Changer Emulator

 

Virtual Medium Changer Emulator (VMCE) is an interactive Win32 MFC-based application with the graphical user interface. The VMCE runs on Windows operating system platforms. It serves as a centralized emulation tool and completely emulates the SCSI Media Changer devices.

VMCE allows user to emulate the behavior of the robotic part of the tape libraries and offers full visualization and control over the emulation process. VMCE emulates the virtual SCSI adapter device. Operating system and other software access the emulated SCSI devices through the virtual SCSI adapter device. The emulated SCSI devices are visible only on the computer the VMCE is running on.

VMCE emulates only Medium Changer device itself. It does not emulate Data Transfer elements as separate Tape Drive SCSI devices.

The range of the potential customers is wide enough and includes the next main groups.

The VMCE product is developed by Infopulse GmbH (http://www.infopulse.de).

SCSI CLI for ASPI

 

The SCSI CLI for ASPI product allows the user to execute the SCSI commands from the command prompt via the ASPI on the Windows operating system platforms.

The product is optimized for Tape Drive and Media Changer devices.

The product is available in both End User and OEM versions.

SCSI Pass Through JNI helper

 

The SCSI Pass Through JNI (SPT JNI) software package provides the SCSI Pass Through (SPT) programmatic interface for Java applications on the Windows 2000/XP/2003 operating system platforms.

 

The package allows Java application to enumerate SCSI host bus adapters and SCSI devices, and to execute SCSI commands for the SCSI devices. Programmatic interface of the package is simple and introduces no limitation on the CDB and data structure. The maximum size of CDB is 16 bytes. The maxiumum size of data is limited by the maximum transfer length parameter of the SCSI host bus adapter and depends on the adapter model and type. The package gives the Java application all the advantages of handling the SCSI devices at relatively low system level. The package does not depend on the type of host bus adapter and handles all types of adapters (SCSI, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, etc) in the same unified way.The package is relatively compact and requires minimum of disk space and memory.
