ToughArmor MB092VK-B
Rugged 2 Bay 2.5” U.2/U.3 NVMe SSD PCIe 4.0 Mobile Rack for External 3.5” Drive Bay
Product Details
  • The ToughArmor MB092VK-B is a Ruggedized Removable DUAL U.2/U.3 NVMe PCIe 3.0/4.0 Mobile Rack Enclosure, supporting up to 64Gbps data transfer speeds through Slimline SAS (SFF-8654 4i) connection. This drive mobile rack fits an external 3.5” drive bay (floppy bay) space. With the advantage of removable drive trays in the frontal drive bay space, users can effortlessly access enterprise U.2 or U.3 drives without disassembling the computer case.
  • Innovative Removable Drive Design
    U.2 NVMe SSDs are typically designed to be installed internally, which can be tough to access when maintenance is needed. With the MB092VK-B, the U.2 drives are brought to the frontal 3.5” drive bay space where they can be easily accessed, making it a more efficient and straightforward process. In addition, each removable drive tray can support U.2 SSDs from 5mm to 9.5mm in height.-inch and M.2 installed simultaneously.
  • Superior Performance
    To unlock the full performance of 64Gbps under PCIe 4.0 specification, the MB092VK-B uses 2x Slimline SAS (SFF-8654 4i) connectors and is also backward compatible with U.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD up to 32Gbps.
  • Full Metal Protection
    Ensuring the drive enclosure can be relied upon for many years, the MB092VK-B is constructed out of heavy-duty metal throughout the entire device, including the drive trays, which are capable of holding up in harsh environments, such as military and medical systems that require a flammability rating.
  • Optimal Cooling Efficiency
    The built-in 25mm cooling fan efficiently disperses the heat generated by the U.2 NVMe SSDs through the intelligently-placed ventilation holes around the enclosure. To adjust the fan speed, simply reposition the fan speed jumper in the rear (High, Low, & Off).
  • Packed with Features
    The Slimline-SAS and SATA power connectors are compatible with cables with a locking latch design. So once the cables are connected, they will be secure in place.
  • An LED status light built into the tray lets you know when your drive is powered up and in use. The LED will automatically shut off when no drive is installed to save power.
  • For an additional physical layer of security, the included 2-segment key-lock can be used to protect against unwanted access and secure drives in rough environments, such as military applications and in-vehicle PCs.
  • (Optional) M.2 NVMe SSD to U.2 NVMe SSD Adapter
    Converting your M.2 NVMe SSD into U.2 NVMe SSD with EZConvert MB705M2P-B adapter offers tool-less SSD installation and comes with a large heatsink designed explicitly for high-speed M.2 NVMe SSDs.
  • (Optional) 3.5" to 5.25" Drive Bay Bracket
    Converting your 5.25" device bay into a 3.5" device bay with Flex-Fit MB343SP drive bay bracket, it features a solid one-piece design with additional dual 2.5" drive slots for extra drive storage.

Q: Can you recommend an add-on card that works with MB092VK-B?

A: The following add-on cards are compatible with MB092VK-B. We highly recommend using the official cable for the best compatibility.


Note:We highly recommend purchasing the cable from a local reseller that you trust.

We are currently certifying our NVMe enclosure with the major add-on card manufacturers. We will be adding compatible add-on cards to the list.

You can click here to report a compatible add-on card/cable. If you want to check the compatibility of add-on card(s) that are not on the list, please click here.

Q: My NVMe drive did not detect after inserting it back into the device while powered on?

A: For systems that support hot-plug function, while your system is powered on, each drive insertion and removal cycle will require a manual refresh from the operating system in order for the system to recognize the drive.


If you are unable to detect the drive after performing the manual refresh, your system might not support hot-plug functions. We suggest you check with the motherboard/add-on card manufacturer to see if it supports the NVMe hot-plug function.


Windows 11 / Windows 10 / Windows 8 – In the search box on the taskbar, type Device Manager, then select from the menu, right-click on the disk drive and then select scan for hardware changes.


Windows 7 – Right-click on computer icon on desktop and select properties, click Device Manager, right-click on the disk drive and then select scan for hardware changes.
