Icy Dock MB833M2K-B storage drive enclosure SSD enclosure Black M.2
Introducing ToughArmor MB833M2K-B, the world’s first ruggedized M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD tool-less removable rack. Your M.2 NVMe SSD no longer requires to be installed on a motherboard or a riser card with a tiny screw, but it can now be installed and accessed from the front of your computer without any tools! The ToughArmor MB833M2K-B comes with a patent-pending tool-less M.2 drive installation design which will alleviate the pain that many users experience when installing M.2 drives and offer easy drive maintenance and system upgrading. The ToughArmor MB833M2K-B supports blazing-fast PCIe x4 transfer speed up to 32Gb/s via MiniSAS HD (SFF-8643) and accepts all standard M.2 drives lengths from 30mm to 110mm (2230, 2242, 2260, 2280, 22110). In addition, while working together with numbers of ventilation holes around the enclosure, each drive tray is equipped with a high efficiency aluminum heat sink to ensure all the M.2 NVMe SSDs remains within their optimal temperature even when it is under full load. Ultimately, your drives will be well protected within this full metal drive enclosure and a barrel key lock to prevent any unauthorized physical access. A typical M.2 drive is installed on a motherboard or a riser card and secured by a tiny screw, and it can be a very troublesome and time-consuming process to install or remove the drive physically. However, with ICY DOCK's ToughArmor MB833M2K-B, M.2 drives are brought into the front of a computer case and makes M.2 NVMe SSD installation and removal a more straightforward and efficient process. Note: the host 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 M.2 NVMe SSD, please refer to FAQ. State-of-art Tool-less M.2 Drive Installation M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD drives are most often inserted at a 45-degree angle then screwed down onto the motherboard. When using ToughArmor MB833M2K-B, the user can simply place the M.2 SSD in the drive tray, adjust the drive locker to the correct length per M.2 drive type, and push down the drive to lock in place. The whole process will only take users less than five seconds to complete, avoiding the hassle of tiny, easy-to-lose screws while bringing a more efficient and innovative way in installing M.2 drives. Being a truly tool-less drive installation, installing and removing of the extra-large high-efficiency aluminum heatsink does not require any tools as well. Simply push your thumbs down against the two buttons located at the underside of the tray and the heat sink will simply pop out for you to remove. To install it back, you simply cover the tray with the heatsink and with a little downward force, it will snap right back onto the tray. EMI Grounding Technology Grounding your M.2 is very important through many swaps, to ensure your data and drive are always safe. Without grounding, when swapping drives, there is a high possibility that there may be static shocks, possibly damaging the data on the drive. With our innovative M.2 drive installation design, the adjustable M.2 locker act as a ground and once the M.2 locker clips into the SSD screw hole, the drive will be grounded by the tray and the housing of the enclosure. The grounded connector design protects your drive from static electrical surge, ensuring your data is always safe during drive swapping. Full Drive Length Support This innovative adjustable M.2 locker slider accommodates all standard M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD drive length including 2230 (30mm), 2242 (42mm), 2260 (60mm), 2280 (80mm), and 22110 (110mm), making this drive tray universal to all drive length and future-proofing the extra-long M.2 drive 22110(110mm). Maximum Cooling Performance M.2 NVMe SSDs are notorious for their overheating issue, which can result in performance degradation and transfer speed throttling. We understand this issue and came fully equipped with an extra-large high-efficiency aluminum heatsink installed onto every ToughArmor MB833M2K-B’s tray. Additionally, each ToughArmor MB833M2K-B includes a pair of thermal heat pads to ensure that excessive heat is dispersed thoroughly throughout the entire heatsink. The heat is further dispersed through the intelligently placed ventilation holes on all sides and working together with your computer cooling system. The drive remains at optimal operating temperatures even under full load. Full Speed Ahead Utilizing the MiniSAS (SFF-8643) interface, it supports the full NVMe bandwidth of 32Gbp/s, which is over five times faster than the previous SATA standard. Making it an ideal solution for data-intensive applications such as in real-time servers, high-performance PCs, deep-learning machines, and 4k/8k/3D media workstations. Ruggedized to the Max Ensuring the product can be relied upon for many years after its deployment, the ToughArmor MB833M2K-B is capable of holding up in the harshest environments, with a rugged heavy-duty metal construction throughout the entire device. The ToughArmor MB833M2K-B full metal design is perfect for industrial devices that require a flammability rating, since all-metal already complies with flammability requirements. Because of the extraordinary build quality, it can be used in various enterprise systems, including military and law enforcement deployment along with various manufacturing conditions such as embedded control and factory automation systems. Packed with Features The front of the ToughArmor MB833M2K-B includes a status LED when the drive is powered on, off and being accessed. Active Power Technology (APT) allows the device power to be on only when a SSD is inserted into the enclosure. For an additional physical layer of security, the large barrel key-lock is implemented to protect against unwanted physical access and to secure drives in place during rough environments, such as military deployments and in-vehicle applications.
