This is a 4pin MOLEX to 15pin SATA power adapter with PIN11 and 5VDC output.
On the pin11 output connector the red wire is a continuous 5V output and the black wire is connected to PIN11 of the SATA connector. MOST hard drives short PIN11 to ground during activity, thus allowing current to flow and illuminating an LED. Please verify your drives’ functionality before utilizing this cable. We are not aware of any specific model drives that do not work in this manor, however this behavior is not required by SATA specification, and some drives may in fact not support activity on PIN11 at all.
Separate 5VDC connector is only live when a drive is connected, useful to be used as a “drive connected” status like for hot-swap setups.
This is a spare cable used to provide the LED status lights on our Quick Swap SATA Racks. Their functionality on other devices is not guaranteed. This cable is sold because of popular demand for a cable of its type, however supply is extremely limited. Once we run out, we will never be getting more.
ALL OUTPUTS ARE BELIEVED TO BE 5VDC AT ALL TIMES. YOU WILL NEED TO USE A CORRECT RESISTOR FOR YOUR LEDS.
