ToughArmor MB992SK-B

Full Metal 2 Bay 2.5” SATA/SAS HDD & SSD Mobile Rack for External 3.5" Drive Bay
Product Details
  • Product Introduction
    Every year, technology is able to become more and more advanced and is constantly improving. Also, with being physically the smallest, and performing the best is the end goal of any storage system. This is why SFF (Small Form Factor) storage systems are becoming more popular due to its low power consumption and space-saving benefits. With the advent of recent solid state technology, this allows 2.5” SSD’s to easily achieve 500MB/sec in transfer rate, which overcomes the 3.5” SATA hard drives in every category except capacity. Therefore, maximize the capacity in a limited space becomes the most important task that many storage consulting firms are faced with often. For SFF systems, we introduce the Icy Dock MB992SK-B 2.5" SATA Mobile Rack solution for use in 3.5" device bays (Floppy bay). Suggested applications in Medical & Military systems, Media servers, and IPCs, approved by Tier 1 companies for the rugged full metal construction used.
  • Complete Space Saver
    Utilizing its small form factor, The MB992SK-B is perfect for use in industrial PCs, SMB SFF servers, mobile DVR systems, or even home servers. The ability to house 2 x SATA SSD or HDD in a single 3.5” bay makes it a valuable asset, such as, building small RAID 1 backups for SMB workstation or fast RAID 0 arrays for powerful personal computer. To keep cables from cluttering, a single SATA 15 power pin is used to ease installation. Save as much as space while maintaining the speed and capacity, which is the beauty of the MB992SK-B.
  • Protect your Investments
    Making sure your drives are in good hands and lasting as much as possible is carefully considered in any enterprise build and design. The MB992SK-B is capable of holding up in the harshest environments, with the rugged heavy duty metal construction in the entirety of the body and its smaller components. It can be used various systems including: military and law enforcement deployment, as well as manufacturing conditions such as embedded control systems and factory automation systems. With the rugged Full Metal design, the ToughArmor is perfect for industrial and medical devices that may require a flammability rating as the full metal material is considered to be already compliant with flammability requirements.
  • The metal material used grants heat dissipation transfer from the hard drives to the mobile rack. Multi-Flow Technology (MFT) effectively routes air flow correctly for excellent passive cooling, via ventilation slots on the front, rear, top and bottom (in multiple locations). Lastly, Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT) and EMI Grounding are used to provide a stable environment for the hard drives or SSD’s used to perform at its best.
  • Versatile Utility & Security
    Bringing more utility your hard drives, a LED is installed into the front of the mobile rack to provide drive status information at all times. Active Power Technology (APT) allows each LED to be on only when a hard drive is inserted into the enclosure. For drive security, the eagle-hook lock system on the tray makes sure your hard drives will not eject when not needed. Additionally, the 2 segment key lock provides extra protection to theft of hard drives as well as safeguards any sensitive data.
  • The brand new EZ Slide Micro trays make drive interchangeability and maintenance completely hassle free. The trays are also designed to accommodate 5mm to 9.5mm height hard drive and SSD, creating a 2.5" hot swap bay for any standard SATA hard drives and SSDs.
  • Make ToughArmor On-The-GO! With MB991U3-1SB
    To access your data outside of your system or in a remote location, the ToughArmor MB991U3-1SB is the way to go about. The drive tray slot of MB991U3-1SB is compatible with a variety of ToughArmor drive trays including the ToughArmor MB991, MB992, MB994, MB996 and MB998 series. This allows existing ToughArmor users to access their internal drive externally without opening up the case. It is a great tool for an individual drive diagnostic test. If you need to do a safe data erase or just simply expending system storage capacity, just remove the tray from the internal ToughArmor unit and insert it in the MB991U3-1SB to perform individual tasks externally with USB 3.0 interface. Best of all, the MB991U3-1SB uses USB bus-powered and it does not require a power adapter to operate. Simply connect the USB cable to any system and you are ready to go.
  • NVMe Edition of ToughArmor MB992SK-B
    If the 6Gbps SATA transfer speed isn't satisfying your data storage needs, ToughArmor MB092VK-B is here to supercharge your storage system. This device accommodates two 5-9.5mm U.2/U.3 NVMe SSDs, delivering blistering transfer speeds of up to 64Gbps per SSD bay. Along with these high-speed capabilities, it inherits the coveted features from MB992SK-B such as hot-swap support (depending on host support), full-metal design, and a five-year warranty.

FAQ

Q: Does MB992SK-B support the new SATA 3.3 / SAS 3.0 Power Disable feature (PWDIS)?

A: The MB992SK-B does not support the SATA 3.3 / SAS 3.0 PWDIS feature. If you install the SATA/SAS HDD/SSD with PWDIS in MB992SK-B , the drive will not spin, and the system won't detect the drive. See the list below for known SATA/SAS HDD/SSD with the PWDIS feature.

 

While we recommend to avoid using the SATA/SAS HDD/SSD with PWDIS, you can use the methods below to disable the PWDIS feature physically if you already purchased the drive:

 

Method 1 – Using the Molex to SATA adapter or cable to disconnect the power to Pin 3 of the SATA power connector.

 

Molex to SATA Adapter   Molex to SATA Cable
Molex to SATA Adapter   Molex to SATA Cable

 

Method 2 – Placing Kapton tape on Pin 1-3 of the SATA/SAS power connector to isolate the 3.3V power, as shown below.
