WHY ToughArmor? TOUGHARMOR LINEUP ACCESSORIES
U.2 NVMe SSD Compatibility    
 

The ToughArmor MB601VK-1B is our next-generation rugged 2.5” U.2 hot-plug mobile rack, supporting ultra-high-speed 32Gbps data transfer with all U.2 NVMe SSDs, including those from Seagate, Samsung, Intel, HGST, Micron, and all other brands.

World’s First U.2 Removable Design
 
 

Supports removable function for any 2.5” U.2 NVMe SSD, allowing for easy installation and removal, and reducing technician costs.

 

Note: the host system has to support NVMe hot-swap function in order for the OS to detect the swapped drive while the system is powered on. If you are having trouble detecting your U.2 NVMe SSD, please refer to FAQ.

Superior Performance
 
 

Built to utilize the next generation U.2 (SFF-8639) interface to support the full NVMe bandwidth specification of 32Gbps, the ToughArmor MB601VK-1B is over 5 times faster than the previous SATA standard, making it ideal for data intensive applications such as in enterprise servers, data centers, and photography for media professionals.

 

Safe and Secure

 
 

ToughArmor is renowned in the enterprise and industrial data storage industry for its ruggedized full-metal enclosure and superior protection, and this trend continues with the MB601VK-1B. Its 100% steel enclosure provides enhanced protection against wear, bumps, and shock damage, and meets flammability standards.

 
 

For optimal cooling, the heat is further dispersed through the intelligently placed ventilation holes on all sides, which works together with your computers cooling system to protect your drives from overheating damage, even under load.

 

Packed with Features

 

An LED status light built into the tray and lets you know when your drive is powered up and in use. To save power, the LED shuts off when no drive is installed.

 

For an additional physical layer of security, the included key-lock can be used to protect against unwanted access and secure drives in particularly rough environments, such as military applications and in-vehicle PCs.

 
 

When not in use, the integrated dust cover protects the open bay from dust, which would otherwise clog the internal connectors and cause additional wear.

 
 

As downward disconnection is one of the common issue that lead to damaging or even snapping the rear connector, the ToughArmor MB601VK-1B comes with rear metal support brackets. The benefits to having the support brackets is to reduce the chances accidental damage to the rear connector when disconnecting improperly and prevent it from shifting around. This also serves as a guide when inserting or removing the SFF-8639 male-connector, making it extremely useful when dealing with limited space.

Compatible with MB601M2K-1B

 
 

Compatible with U.2 and M.2 drives when combined with the ToughArmor MB601M2K-1B. Because these models use the same outer tray housing, their trays are inter-compatible and can be swapped between them.

Frequent Asked Questions

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


A: ToughArmor MB601VK-1B is designed with NVMe drive hot-swap capability;however, the host system has to support NVMe hot-swap as well. For systems that does not support NVMe hot-swap, 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 still unable to detect the drive after performing the manual refresh, please contact us at tech@icydock.com for more assistance.
