To unlock the potential of the PCIe 4.0 U.2/U.3 NVMe SSD, each drive bay uses a dedicated OCuLink (SFF-8612) connector to achieve the bandwidth rate of 64Gb/s, which is 2x faster than PCIe 3.0 and 10 x faster than SATA standards. The fast IO/s makes it a solution for data-intensive applications such as autonomous driving, mobile automation, real-time forecast, film editing, and military computing.

Removable drive tray design

Typically, NVMe U.2/U.3 SSDs are installed inside the computer case, which can be tough to reach when it requires maintenance. With the ToughArmor MB699VP-B V3, user drives are brought to the frontal 5.25″ optical drive bay, where the U.2/U.3 SSDs can be accessed, making drive maintenance more efficient and straightforward process. The removable drive trays support any standard U.2/U.3 SSD from 5 to 15mm drive height.

Maximizing cooling performance

Built-in with the dual 40x20mm cooling fans, the heat generates by U.2/U.3 SSD is further dispersed through the intelligently place ventilation holes throughout the entire enclosure. The dual cooling fans come with 3 fan speed settings: High, low, and off. The user can choose the appropriate fan speed option to keep the drives at optimal operating temperatures.

EMI grounding technology

Icy Dock Mb699vp B V3 Emi Grounding Technology
Grounding drives are essential as swapping drives without the proper grounding may lead to hardware damage due to static shocks. With the firm’s EMI Grounding Technology, once the drive is screwed onto the drive tray, the drive will be in a constant grounded state throughout the tray, housing, and computer system to ensure your drives are protected from static electrical surges safe during swapping.

ToughArmor protection
Ensuring the enclosure can be relied upon for many years, the ToughArmor MB699VP-B V3 is capable of holding up in the harshest environment. It comes equipped with rugged, heavy-duty full-metal protection throughout the entire device and tray, making it for industrial devices that may require a flammability rating.
