2.5" HDD/SSD CAGES
Introducing the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB991IK-B 2.5" SAS / SATA Mobile Rack solution for use in 3.5" device bays (Floppy bay). The main purpose is to provide a small form factor device built specifically for systems in a small real estate to work with, specifically for 2.5 SAS hard drives or SSDs. Because of the high performance and reliability factor of SAS drives, it is crucial for the storage solution to be just as sturdy as the drive being used. By using heavy duty metal construction, it is capable to withstand the harshest enterprise type environments. The drive is fully secured by our proven technologies such as, the Eagle-Hook lock system and metal 2-segment safeguard key. Our full metal EZ Slide Mini Tray allows interchangeability of data between multiple systems with other compatible ToughArmor products. Suggested applications in Medical & Military systems, Media servers, and IPCs, approved by Tier 1 companies.
Efficient Space Use
 
The MB991IK-B is perfect for use in industrial PCs, SMB SFF servers, mobile DVR systems, or even home servers. These systems tend to use components that provide the needed features, in the smallest form factor available. The ability to house one SAS / SATA SSD or HDD in a single 3.5” bay makes it a valuable asset in specific applications such as, integration into an industrial imaging or medical device.
Full Metal Protection
 
Making sure that the material used is designed in a way where it can be relied upon for many years after its deployment. The MB991IK-B is capable of holding up in the harshest environments, with the heavy duty metal construction throughout the entire device. With the 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 already comply with flammability requirements. So because of the high build quality and compatibility, it can be used various enterprise systems including: military and law enforcement deployment, as well as manufacturing conditions such as embedded control systems and factory automation systems.
 
The full metal design also allows efficient heat dissipation transfer from the hard drives throughout the mobile rack. In addition, Multi-Flow Technology effectively routes air flow correctly for excellent passive cooling in key ventilation slots on the front, rear, top and bottom. Lastly, Anti-Vibration Technology and EMI Grounding are used to provide a stable environment for the hard drives or SSDs used to perform at its best.
Convenient Utility & Accessibility
 
The front of the ToughArmor includes a status LED when the drive is powered on, off and accessed. Active Power Technology (APT) allows the status 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 EZ Slide Mini trays make drive interchangeability and maintenance completely hassle free, in case of a hard drive failure. With a simple swap of the hard drive, your overall down time is greatly reduced especially if this occurs when it is time sensitive. The trays are also designed to accommodate 7 to 15mm height hard drive and SSD, creating a 2.5" hot swap bay for any standard SAS / SATA hard drives and SSDs. While the tray is not installed to the MB991IK-B, the Anti-Dust Flap feature helps prevent dust from entering into the mobile rack.

"Judging from its rugged construction, it's quite obvious that the MB991IK-B was not just designed to be a typical mobile rack to be used in server rooms but also in conditions that aren't typically the most ideal computing environments. Researchers camped out, for example, or the military or SWAT teams or just about any situation where data security is paramount and durability from your computing components is demanded."
