Makes 3 simultaneous copies from one source!

Triplicator makes your job easier. When you need to copy your critical data to multiple drives, Triplicator saves you time and energy by doing the copies in a single actions. When you copy data to the Triplicator volume, identical data will be copied to all the target drives. Perfect for any production workflow when you need on-site backups of your valuable data. The first product from the new Glyph Production Technologies.

It's easy. Here's how it works:

1. Connect two or three drives to Triplicator's eSATA device ports
2. Connect the Triplicator to your computer via FireWire 800, USB or eSATA
3. Power on the drives and Triplicator - the LED tells you how many drives are attached
4. Copy data - the destination is seen as one drive through the Triplicator

Setting up the Triplicator

The Triplicator enables you to make up to three identical copies of your data simultaneously. To use the Triplicator, first connect two or three target drives and power them on. The drives should not contain any data that you wish to preserve when the Triplicator powers on it will re-initialize them, thus erasing all data.


The Triplicator can be connected to the computer via eSATA, FireWire or USB using any of the ports marked "computer connections". The target drives are connected to the Triplicator via eSATA cables only, using the ports marked "eSATA drive 1", "eSATA drive 2", etc. The Triplicator supports any eSATA connected drives, including the Glyph PortaGig 50, PortaGig 62, GT 050Q and GT 062E.

User Interface

Triplicator's user interface also provides important information during the copy process. The front panel includes a button designed to guard against unintended drive initialization. Once you power on the Triplicator, the blue LED blinks to indicate that button press is required. On button press, the drives initialize and the blue LED goes to solid. After a few seconds a volume will be visible to your computer. Format this volume using your operating system utility, and you're ready to go. After the Triplicator has initialized the drives, the red LED pattern blinks to show the number of attached drives. If no drives are attached, the LED goes solid red. If a discovered drive disappears in the course of operation, it goes solid red.

In use

You can use the Triplicator volume as you would use the volume on any Glyph drive. Read and write speeds will be the same as those on a GT 050Q. When you copy data to the Triplicator volume, the data will be copied to all target drives at the same time. Once you are done working with the drives, you can unmount the volume just like any external drive, and connect the target drives individually to a computer. You will see that the same data is on each drive.

Drive capacities

It is best, but not necessary, for all of the drive capacities to be the same. If you connect three 500GB drives, the volume will be 500GB, because the same data is copied to all drives. If you connect two 500GB drives and one 250GB drive, the capacity will be equal to the smallest drive, so total capacity will be 250GB.

Power On creates new volume

Each time you power on the Triplicator and press the button, it will create a new volume, and any data on the drives will be lost. Even if you power on the Triplicator with the three drives that were connected before power off, it will create a new volume and the data on the drives will be lost. This behavior is intended Glyph designed it as a simple appliance to make multiple backups.

3-2-1 Warranty - Best Warranty in the Industry.

Glyph is confident that their drive systems perform at the most reliable level. Glyph backs them up with a 3-Year warranty, 2-Year Free Basic Data Recovery Policy, and 1-Year Advance Replacement (U.S. Continental 48 States only).

Optional rack-mount kits

The Single Rack Kit transforms your Triplicator into a 1U rack appliance. The Double Rack Kit mounts any two Glyph tabletop drives in a 1U rack space. (Sold separately).

Nobody likes wall-warts

They are easily misplaced, or accidentally unplugged from the enclosure, and take up valuable outlet space. The Triplicator uses an industry-standard power cord and pro-quality internal power supply for the most efficient and reliable power source possible.

Professional carrying case

The Triplicator includes an impact-resistant hard-molded plastic carrying case to protect your valuable work. The case is foam-lined and as room for your accessory cables.

A cool drive is a healthy drive

The Triplicator uses a quiet internal fan for maximum airflow and proper cooling. The case is designed with front-panel ventilation holes to draw cool air in, while exhausting warm air out the back - critical to the performance and reliability of the components.
