Introducing the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB607SP-B full metal quad bay 2.5" SATA 6Gbps hard drive or SSD hot swap rugged mobile rack cage for use in a single external 5.25" bay. The MB607SP-B is predicated off the incredibly popular ruggedized mobile rack MB994SP-4SB-1, while taking its general concept, but built with cost effective structure without sacrificing anything in the way of strength. For better compatibility, the original 4 pin power connector has been replaced with a more, popularly used, 15 pin SATA power connector, and reducing cable clutter. The MB607SP-B takes 4 x 2.5" SAS/SATA HDD/SSD from 5mm to 15mm height, and supports hot swap for quick and easy drive replacements. The single 40mm cooling fans has an additional 3-Mode Fan Speed control, allowing the best flexibility – Turn off / low when using SSD’s and high when using mechanical SATA hard drives. The MB607SP-B is constructed of rugged robust metal to survive the most demanding conditions making it a perfect storage upgrade kit for Medical & Military systems, embedded system, and industrial PC.
Industrial Construction Ready
Ensuring drive protection and longevity are the foundation of a high-quality data storage system design/build. The MB607SP-B is capable of withstanding the harshest environments due to its rugged heavy duty full metal construction from the outer shell to the inner trays. The ToughArmor's full metal design is perfect for industrial and medical systems that may require a flammability rating as the full metal design is considered to already comply with most requirements.
 
 
Versatile & Durable Drive Trays
 
The MB607SP-B utilizes our EZ Slide Mini Trays, making drive interchangeability and maintenance completely hassle free. The trays are built using rugged full metal so that they are durable for many lifetimes, but will not weigh you down when transporting your data from system to system. The EZ Slide Mini tray is featuring a full range drive protection design; the top drive cover provides added protection while moving the drive. The trays are designed to accommodate 5mm, 7mm, 9.5mm, 12.5mm & 15mm drives giving you the ultimate universal 2.5" SAS/SATA drive support with hot-swap function.
Multifunctional Applications
 
Utilizing its small form factor, the MB607SP-B is perfect for use in small form factor system or system that requires multiple drives with limited physical space. With its high density drive design and limited number of 5.25" drive bays available, it is a perfect combo to create a RAID 5 or RAID 10 systems with ease. Also, it is built to function in the most demanding environments including military and law enforcement deployment, as well as manufacturing conditions such as embedded control systems and factory automation systems. The full metal design makes it ideal for placement in tough environments.
 
Absolute Control of your 2.5” hard drive or SSD
 
Bringing more utility to your hard drives or SSDs, LED’s are installed into the front of the mobile rack to provide individual drive status information at all times. Active Power Technology (APT) allows each LED and the cooling fan to be active only when a hard drive is inserted into the enclosure.
 
A single 40mm cooling fan is placed on the rear panel, providing equivalent airflow throughout the entire cage. In addition, a 3-Mode Fan Speed Control has been added to be flexible in various situations, depending on your usage - you may need the fan to be at a higher speed, or completely off for silent operation.
Never forget which drives belong in what bays. With our individual drive ID labels you’ll always know which drive tray belongs in your RAID array or which drive contains certain files. Freely unplug and rearrange them to better suit your configuration or simply remove them for a more simplified look.
The ToughArmor MB607SP-B supports both 7-pin SATA data and 15-pin 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’ll lock into place and stay that way.
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 MB607, 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.

Prevent Server Drive Ejection From User Error with ToughArmor MB994SK-1B
 
 
When working with workstations, databases, and/or servers that requires front-loading, sometimes hard drives may be accidentally ejected by an inadvertent push of the eject button.

With the ToughArmor MB994SK-1B 4 x 2.5" SATA/SAS HDD/SSD Full Metal Mobile Rack with Key Lock, the additional security lock on each drive tray not only protects the hard drive from being easily stolen, it also prevents accidental drive ejections that lead to system crashes. But you already have a MB994SP-4S, MB994SP-4SB-1, or MB994IPO-3SB and want a lock for preventative measures? Simply obtain the EZ Slide Mini Tray MB994TK-B and slide it into your MB994 series products and you now have extra protection for your hard drives!

"The MB994SP has many things going for it. Not only is a sleek looking solution to keeping all your 2.5” drives in one convenient location, but it also cools them (if they’re mechanical) and keeps them safe."

"If you looking for more expansion capability in your SFF case (or even a full tower case), look no further than the Icy Dock MB994SP-4S."

Launch Date: Aug 2010

"There is no doubt that Icy Dock MB994SP-4S is a unique and exciting product since it can accommodate up to four 2.5" SATA/SDD/SAS HDD at the same time with only consuming a single slot of 5.25" external drive bay of a chassis. 2.5" HDD is seldom being used in desktop system due to higher cost than 3.5" HDD and its limited supportability by most of the desktop chassis. However Icy Dock MB994SP-4S has just broken the impossibility by supporting quad 2.5" HDD at the same with; ideal for those are looking for frequent & complicated data transferring, data back up."

Frequent Asked Questions

Q: The mounting screws for the device seem to be too short to secure the device onto my system, what should I do?


A: For computer cases that have a thick metal sheet, the included mounting screws (M3*2.5L) may not fully secure the device. Please use longer screws (M3*4L) to secure the device or contact us at tech@icydock.com for replacement screws.
