I need to get a couple of new USB to Sata adaptors for my toolkit, but these would also be useful for upgrading my DP hdds and temporarily attaching disks to have them scanned while i'm at work.

Are there any known to work with Scanner, or known not to work which should be avoided?

Not really. 


Even if they don't grab SMART data (they probably will), there shouldn't be any issues with using these.

I used this for over a year connecting a media pro box to my server,  worked like a charm and all smart data was passed to scanner for the 4 drives in the box.
