The included thermal pad fills the gaps between the contact surfaces and transfers heat away from the M.2 SSD to the heatsink tray, allowing airflow to dissipate the heat away efficiently.

ToughArmor protection for harshest environment

Built to withstand harsh environments, the ToughArmor MB873MP-B V2 features rugged, metal protection throughout the entire device and tray. This makes it for industrial devices requiring a flammability rating and suits various enterprise systems such as military and law enforcement industries, in-vehicle computers, and manufacturing settings like embedded control and factory automation systems.

EMI grounding technology

Grounding M.2 NVMe SSD is essential as swapping drives without proper grounding may lead to hardware damage due to static shocks. With the firm’s EMI Grounding technology, once the M.2 locker clips into the SSD screw hole, the SSD will be in a grounded state throughout the enclosure’s tray and housing. After the enclosure is installed in the system with 4 screws on its’ side, it will ground itself throughout the computer system.

Packed with features
