  • Introducing the CP137, a robust eight-bay removable drive enclosure specifically engineered for U.2/U.3 NVMe SSDs. This concept product supports up to 7mm high U.2/U.3 SSD and PCIe 5.0 interface, enabling ultra-fast data transfer speeds of up to 128Gb/s through its Mico (SFF-TA-1016 8i) connectors.
  • Constructed from durable full-metal materials, the CP137 features easily removable drive trays, simplifying the process of drive maintenance. The enclosure is further enhanced with dual 40x20mm cooling fans, ensuring optimal operating temperatures for high-speed U.2/U.3 SSDs.
  • Effortless Drive maintenance
    The CP137 revolutionizes drive maintenance by bringing U.2/U.3 SSDs to the easily accessible front 5.25" optical drive bay. The removable drive trays, compatible with standard U.2/U.3 SSDs up to 7mm in height, facilitate effortless installation and removal.
  • Unleashing PCIe 5.0 Speeds
    Experience unparalleled performance with the CP137, ideal for data-heavy tasks requiring both speed and reliability. Equipped with Mico (SFF-TA-1016 8i) connectors, each drive bay achieves transfer speeds up to 128Gb/s. This is double the speed of PCIe 4.0 and twenty times faster than SATA, fully harnessing the capabilities of NVMe Gen 5.0 x4 SSDs. The CP137 is perfect for applications like autonomous driving, real-time forecasting, film editing, and military computing, where rapid data processing is essential.
  • Optimized Cooling Solution
    The CP137's dual 40x20mm fans effectively dissipate heat from U.2/U.3 SSDs. Strategically placed ventilation holes throughout the enclosure ensure even heat dispersion, maintaining ideal drive temperatures.
  • Rugged and Reliable
    Built to withstand harsh environments, the CP137 offers rugged, full-metal protection throughout the device and tray. This makes it suitable for systems requiring a flammability rating and ideal for various enterprise applications, including military, law enforcement, in-vehicle computing, and industrial settings like embedded control and factory automation systems.
  • Innovative EMI Grounding
    Grounding your drives is essential to prevent hardware damage from static shocks when swapping drives. Our innovative EMI grounding technology ensures that once the drive is screwed onto the drive tray, it remains constantly grounded throughout the tray, housing, and computer system to protect the U.2/U.3 SSDs from static electrical surges during drive swapping.
  • Feature-Rich Design
    The drive tray includes an LED status light for power and activity indication. When no drives are installed, the LED will shut off to conserve power. Individual drive ID labels help track drives in RAID arrays or identify specific files. The CP137 utilizes a single 8-pin PCI Express power connector to power all eight U.2/U.3 SSDs, reducing cable clutter and enhancing internal airflow with additional space for air vents.
  • Broad Compatibility
    The CP137 is compatible with a range of hardware from leading brands like Adaptec, Areca, Broadcom, HighPoint, Supermicro, and more. This versatility allows for diverse system configurations beyond single-brand limitations.
