Full Metal 12 Bay M.2 SATA SSD OCuLink (SFF-8612) Mobile Rack for External 5.25″ Drive Bay

Full Metal 12 Bay M.2 SATA SSD OCuLink (SFF-8612) Mobile Rack for External 5.25″ Drive Bay

The ToughArmor MB872MP-B supports 12 x M.2 SATA SSDs from 30mm to 110mm (2230 / 2242 / 2260 / 2280 / 22110) in just a single 5.25″ optical drive bay. It uses 3 x high-speed OCuLink (SFF-8612) connectors in the rear to support twelve M.2 SATA SSD with 6Gb/s transfer speed per drive while reducing the amount of cable clutter for optimal system airflow and easy cable management. The removable drive tray design with an innovative adjustable M.2 locker allows you to interchange M.2 drives without using tools or screws.

The 40mm fan with 3-Mode fan speed control working along with intelligently placed ventilation holes keeps your drives in optimal temperatures. The device and trays are made out of heavy-duty metal to ensure long-lasting durability.

High Storage Density for High-Performance PCs

The ToughArmor MB872MP-B’s high storage density design makes it suitable for high-performance systems with limited storage space, such as high-performance PCs, home servers, workstation PCs, and data centers. It’s designed for systems that require high IOPS, high capacity, and low latency storage access.

MB872MP-B connects 12 x M.2 SATA SSD with only 3 x OCuLink (SFF-8612) data connector and 2 x SATA 15pin power connector for easy cable management and better system airflow. These are essential for high-performance PC builds.

Innovative Removable M.2 SATA SSD Tray

A typical M.2 drive is installed on the motherboard or adapter card with tiny screws, which can be a troublesome and time-consuming process. However, with the MB872MP-B, the frontal removable drive tray design makes the M.2 SSD installation and removal a straightforward process without using any tools.

Effortless Tool-Less M.2 Drive Installation

The ToughArmor MB872MP-B is equipped with a patent-pending M.2 adjustable locker for tool-less drive installation/removal. Simply insert the M.2 SATA SSD (2230, 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110), move the adjustable M.2 locker until it firmly secures the SSD and closes the lid. The whole process takes less than 10 seconds to complete, saving your valuable time and resources.

Optimal Cooling Efficiency

The specialized slimline tray is made with thick aluminum and acts as a heatsink to dissipate heat generated by the M.2 SATA SSD. Additionally, using 3 x OCuLink cables instead of 12 x SATA cables reduces cable clutter and improves the system airflow.

The included thermal pad fills the contact surfaces gap and transfers heat away from the M.2 SSD to the huge heatsink tray, allowing airflow to dissipate the heat away efficiently.

Powering up the twelve drives at once can accumulate heat. Therefore, we have included a 40mm cooling fan with adjustable 3-Mode fan speed control, providing airflow throughout the entire cage. Depending on your requirement, select the proper fan speed to keep the drives at optimal operating temperatures, even under heavy load.

Tough Protection for the Harshest Environment

Ensuring the enclosure can be relied upon for many years, the ToughArmor MB872MP-B can hold up in the harshest environment. It comes equipped with rugged full-metal protection throughout the entire device and tray, making it perfect for industrial devices that may require a flammability rating. The high build quality is suitable for various enterprise systems, including the medical, military, law enforcement industries, and manufacturing conditions such as embedded control and factory automation systems.

EMI Grounding Technology

Grounding your M.2 SSD is essential as swapping drives without proper grounding may lead to hardware damages due to static shocks. With our innovative EMI Grounding Technology, once the M.2 locker clips into the SSD screw hole, the SSD will be in a grounded state throughout the enclosure’s tray and housing. After the enclosure is installed in the system with four screws on its’ side, it will ground itself throughout the computer system.

Brilliant Design

ToughArmor MB872MP-B has two mounting sets of screw holes that enables compatibility to most of 5.25” bays in a standard computer chassis. Having those two sets of screw holes, MB872MP-B can be installed either upside down or regularly per user’s preference. Ultimately, it provides extra flexibility for users to conveniently adjust drive installation based on their system design.

Packed with features

The LED status light in each of the trays gives you the current status information with a glance. With Active Power Technology, the enclosure turns on when the drives are inserted and automatically shuts off when all drives are removed.

Never forget which drives belong in which bays. With drive ID plugs, you’ll always know which drive tray belongs in your RAID array or which drives contains specific files. Freely unplug and rearrange them to better suit your configurations or remove them for a simplified look.

The ToughArmor MB872MP-B supports 15 pins SATA power cables with locking latches, so you’ll never need to worry about cables unintentionally disconnecting from your enclosure. Once these cables are connected, they will lock and stay in place.
