SoftRaid XT compatible with Akitio Thunder3 RAID Station?

Tried searching for this, but could only find that latest SoftRaid supports Akitio Thunder3 Quad, not the Akitio Thunder3 RAID Station.

Within SoftRaid, it refers to the Thunder3 RAID Station as "OWC MEP Dock Raid 1"

Do I need SoftRaid Pro for this?

Ok, the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dock looks damn near the same as the Akitio Thunder3 RAID Station.

I know OWC bought Akitio ... is the MEP just a rebranded Akitio Thunder3?

It is not quite the same, but originally the same industrial designer designed both.

Will SoftRaid XT work on the Akitio Thunder3 RAID Station?

If so, do you put the switch in Non-Raid or Raid 1?

Sorry, XT won't work, as this is a hardware RAID and SoftRAID is not bundled with these enclosures.

But if you want to use SoftRAID Lite, you can and you would set the switch to non RAID. (Note; this will wipe all data on the drives, if any)
