Explanation, The Multi Bay Enclosure:
Both the enclosure and the PC must have the 4-channel multilane back plane device with ATA2 ports, this is where the 4-channel multilane cable will be connected between the two devices. The enclosure hard drives each have their own channel that will connect to the multilane back plane internal ports via an internal SATA cable. All drive channels to the back plane device converge into 1 output cable containing the information for each channel (4 channel max.) to the PC.

Explanation, The PC:
The PC operates similarly to the multi bay enclosure in that it also will contain a multilane back plane device to output the information to the hard drive on any of the 4 channels available. The channels from inside the PC can connect from either a SATA II PCI controller card or the mother board SATA ports if available

Tech Notes

The 4-channel multilane cable does not have to be used with all 4 channels or 4 hard drives. The Low-Profile multilane back plane and cable can be used with 2 drives without loss of information in any way. The channels represented in the multilane cable and back plane are independent of each other, one does not affect the other in any way.

The PC connections can be either on a SATA PCI controller card with internal ports or your PC's mother board SATA ports.
