IQ CopyStation USB



Compact, flexible and ultra fast solution for copying and programming data contents from USB 2.0 compatible devices such as USB sticks and mobile devices with USB 2.0 interface

Suited for USB flash drives (USB Sticks) and mobile devices with USB 2.0 interface for example tablet computer, navigation devices (PND), smartphones, mobile phones (also known as a cellular phone, cell phone and hand phone), media player, embedded systems, µcontroller, mobile data storage devices etc. compatible with USB mass storage standard devices – more usable media types such as SATA drives, CFast, flash cards etc. you will find in the PDF compatibility matrix on the right or at „Compare product“.

The simple operation and well-designed user interface ensures a short learning curve and minimizes operator errors. Accordingly, the (personnel) costs resulting from the copy process remain very low, reducing the unit costs for each copied USB storage device.

  • High speed – the copying and programming transfer rates of IQ CopyStation USB are nearly always located to the maximum of connected USB devices
  • Universality – all in one pass. Copying and (optional) programming of data or firmware, serialization, write protection etc.
  • Flexibility – Stand alone or  Host based Mode by USB 2.0 with Windows PC. For typical fields of application a wide spectrum of optional software modules is already available. Programming for special purposes? No problem.
  • Evaluation – detailed evaluation of copying and programming processes for QA according to ISO 9001.
  • Quality – development and fabrication in Germany, full system support by manufacturer.


For content duplication services or manufacturers of USB flash drives (USB sticks) or mobile devices such as navigation devices (PND), smartphones, mobile phones (also known as a cellular phone, cell phone and hand phone), tablet PC’s, media player, embedded systems, µcontroller, mobile data storage devices etc., that means wherever you want to copy data contents via USB 2.0 or program mobile devices with internal flash memory via USB 2.0 and both in series, the IQ Copystation USB is the ideal copying and programming solution.

Use the IQ CopyStations in stand-alone mode for simple copy jobs (write, verify or write & verify). For more complex copy jobs you can control up to 32 IQ CopyStations from a single host PC with IQ PowerSoftware.
With both operation modes you are able to copy media content rapidly onto 20 (21) flash media slots respectively USB 2.0 compatible devices. By using an adapter the IQ CopyStation USB also works with other types of media with different interfaces such as SATA drives, CFast cards (Compact flash cards with SATA interface) etc.
An overview of usable flash media you will find in the PDF compatibility matrix or rather „Compare product“ on the right.

Next to the “Parallel Copy” mode, the “Copying on Insertion™” mode is available for both operation modes and minimizes the required action for operators. By “Copying on Insertion™” the altec IQ CopyStations automatically start the designated copy process when empty flash media respectively the USB 2.0 device is connected or rather inserted into copy slot. Thereby times for loading and running the machine are minimized, more time for copy processes. Hardly able to copy flash media with more efficiency.

IQ PowerSoftware

By connecting the altec IQ CopyStations in host operating mode to PC via USB 2.0 the full capability of these highly efficient devices is disclosed. The smart and easy to learn software concept of IQ PowerSoftware with numerous options already allows a multitude of optional copy modes to reduce production costs by saving time for copy processes.
In addition and optionally IQ PowerSoftware provides external data migration to enable serialization of flash media respectively mobile USB 2.0 devices or programming firmware. Within the workflow individual coding and copy protection mechanism can be implemented.

Within the USB-e.MMC set-up instructions the IQ CopyStation USB transmits commands to configure used e.MMC components. The installation of hidden data partitions, multiple LUN’s, different sized MLC and SLC areas etc. is easy integrated into the workflow – “flashing” the (flash-) controller firmware via USB 2.0 is also possible. Afterwards the IQ CopyStation USB automatically copies the individual data content onto the mobile USB 2.0 device without subsequent action by user. Check instruments for the taken orders of altec IQ CopyStations are comprehensive log and analysis functions supporting QA processes ISO 9001.
