Your device might get warm

Your device might feel warm to the touch when copying or moving a large number of files. These conditions are normal. Your device will return to a regular temperature after it’s finished copying.

Conditions that lead to a higher ambient temperature may affect performance. For example:

  • Leaving the device in direct sunlight for a limited period of time.
  • Leaving the device in a hot enclosed space, such as a car on a hot day.

Extended exposure to extreme weather, heat or water will harm the product and/or permanently damage it. All such actions void the warranty.

Ingress Protection rating

The Ingress Protection (IP) rating is a standard for defining the types of protection supported by equipment and devices. The two-digit code for IP lets users know the conditions that the device can withstand. The two digits are independent, with each number representing a different level of protection.

LaCie Rugged RAID Shuttle is rated IP 54 (horizontal mode).

5: Dust protected—Ingress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment.
4: Spraying of water—Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect, utilizing either: a) an oscillating fixture, or b) a spray nozzle with no shield.

Rugged RAID Shuttle has also been tested for the following:

  • Drop resistance—Dropped from heights up to 1.2 meters / 4 feet (in non-operating mode).
  • Crush resistance—Driven over by an approximately 1-ton car (1000kg / 2205 lbs).
