Removable drive tray design
NVMe U.2/U.3 SSDs are typically installed inside the computer case, making maintenance a difficult and time-consuming process. The ToughArmor MB118VP-B brings user drives to the front 5.25″ optical drive bay, utilizing removable drive trays for hassle-free maintenance. These removable drive trays are compatible with standard U.2/U.3 SSDs up to 9.5mm in drive height, ensuring easy installation and removal of your drives.

Superior PCIe 4.0 performance

The ToughArmor MB118VP-B provides performance for data-intensive applications that demand speed and reliability. Equipped with SlimSAS 8i (SFF-8654) connectors, each drive in the enclosure can achieve transfer speeds of up to 64Gb/s, 2x as fast as PCIe 3.0 and 10x faster than SATA standards, which unleash the full potential of NVMe Gen 4.0 x4 SSDs. The fast IO/s makes the MB118VP-B a storage solution for autonomous driving, real-time forecasting, film editing, and military computing applications, where high-speed data processing is critical.

Maximizing cooling performance

By incorporating dual high-performance 40x20mm cooling fans, the ToughArmor MB118VP-B can dissipate the heat generated by U.2/U.3 SSDs through intelligently placed ventilation holes throughout the entire enclosure, which allow the heat to disperse evenly and maintain optimal operating temperatures for user drives.

ToughArmor protection

Ensuring the enclosure can be relied upon for many years, the ToughArmor MB118VP-B is capable of holding up in the harshest environment. The enclosure is equipped with rugged, metal protection throughout the entire device and tray, making it for a system that may require a flammability rating. The build quality makes it suitable for various enterprise systems, including military and law enforcement systems, in-vehicle computers, and manufacturing conditions such as embedded control and factory automation systems.

EMI grounding technology

Grounding user drives is essential to prevent hardware damage from static shocks when swapping drives. The company’s EMI grounding technology ensures that once the drive is screwed onto the drive tray, it remains constantly grounded throughout the tray, housing, and computer system to protect the U.2/U.3 SSDs from static electrical surges during drive swapping.

Packed with features

Keep track of drives easily with the included individual drive ID labels. You’ll always know which drive tray belongs in your RAID or which drives contain specific files. Rearrange them as needed or remove them for a simplified look.
