The Spider-NAS (Network Attached Storage) is a dedicated storage device that works with front-end modules from Crystal
Instruments, including the Spider-80X, Spider-81, and Spider-DAQ. Eight high-speed data buses interface directly with each Spider
front-end module. An Ethernet port is used to configure and control the Spider-NAS.
A high-performance removable Serial ATA (SATA) 2.5-inch hard disk is used as storage media. When recorded, data will be written in
NTFS file format. Data is extracted from the Spider-NAS using Crystal Instruments software to transfer data to the PC. Alternatively,
the SATA hard disk can be physically removed and connected to extract data to the PC.
A second SATA hard-disk can be attached to Spider-NAS. This disk can serve the same purpose as the first disk. The user can plugin
his own 2.5-inch hard-drive for use.
