Icy Dock ToughArmor MB601M2K-1B Drive Bay Adapter for 3.5" M.2, SATA-600, PCI Express NVMe - U.2 (SFF-8639) Host Interface Internal - Black

$218.95 Regular price

The ToughArmor MB601M2K-1B is the world's first rugged M.2 NVMe removable mobile rack, supporting ultra-high speed 32Gbps data transfer using M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs of all lengths and brands, including Samsung, Western Digital, Intel, Crucial, Corsair, Adata, and all other brands

Removable Design

Because M.2 SSDs are not designed for hot-swap, they use exposed circuit boards and delicate connectors typically rated for only 250 insertions and removals. With the MB601M2K-1B, your M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD is wrapped in a full-metal layer of protection, and takes advantage of ICY DOCK's 10,000+ insertion / removal connector, making it easy to add, remove, and swap your drives quickly and safely. Additionally, the grounded connector design protects your drive from an electrical surge, ensuring your data is safe through many swaps.The removable function allows the user to swap the drive without rebooting the computer and makes system maintenance quick and easy.

Convenient Accessibility

The adjustable M.2 locker slides to accommodate all standard M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD drive lengths, including 2230 (30mm), 2242 (42mm), 2260 (60mm), 2280 (80mm) and 22110 (110mm). The locker clips into the SSD screw hole to secure the drive without screws, saving you the hassle of dealing with tiny easy-to-lose screws while protecting your drive from vibration and movement damage.

Superior Performance

Utilizes the U.2 (SFF-8639) NVMe connector to support the full NVMe bandwidth specification of 32Gbps, over 5 times faster than the previous SATA standard, making it ideal for data intensive applications such as in enterprise servers, data centers, and for photography and media professionals.

Safe and Secure

Ruggedized full-metal chassis, tray, and mounting bracket help to ensure a long product life, and further aid in heat dissipation. An anti-vibration mechanism built into the chassis reduces noise and protects against environmental damage.

The uniquely designed tray has an integrated aluminum heat sink with included thermal pads for maximum passive heat dispersion.

This 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 lets you know when your drive is powered up and in use. To save power, the LED is shut 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 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 MB601M2K-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.
