Introducing the ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB991SK-B 2.5” SATA HDD/SSD Full Metal Mobile Rack in 1 x 3.5” Device Bay

Introducing the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB991SK-B 2.5" SATA Mobile Rack solution for use in 3.5" device bays (Floppy bay). It is a smaller form factor device built specifically for systems with small real estate to work with. Using a heavy duty metal construction, it is capable to withstand the harshest enterprise type environments. The drive is fully secured by our proven technologies such as, the Eagle-Hook lock system and metal 2-segment safeguard key. Our full metal EZ Slide Mini Tray allows interchangeability of data between multiple systems with other ToughArmor products. Suggested applications in Medical & Military systems, Media servers, and IPCs, approved by Tier 1 companies.
Efficient Space Use

The MB991SK-B is perfect for use in industrial PCs, SMB SFF servers, mobile DVR systems, or even home servers. These systems tend to use components that provide the needed features, in the smallest form factor available. The ability to house one SATA SSD or HDD in a single 3.5” bay makes it a valuable asset in specific applications such as, integration into an industrial imaging or medical device.
Full Metal Protection

Making sure that the material used is designed in a way where it can be relied upon for many years after its deployment. The MB991SK-B is capable of holding up in the harshest environments, with the heavy duty metal construction throughout the entire device. The ToughArmor’s full metal design is perfect for industrial devices that may require a flammability rating as the full metal material is considered to already comply with flammability requirements. So because of the high build quality, it can be used various enterprise systems including: military and law enforcement deployment, as well as manufacturing conditions such as embedded control systems and factory automation systems including: military and law enforcement deployment, as well as manufacturing conditions such as embedded control systems and factory automation systems.
The full metal design also allows heat dissipation transfer from the hard drives throughout the mobile rack. In addition, Multi-Flow Technology effectively routes air flow correctly for excellent passive cooling in key ventilation slots on the front, rear, top and bottom. Lastly, Anti-Vibration Technology and EMI Grounding are used to provide a stable environment for the hard drives or SSDs used to perform at its best.
Convenient Utility & Accessibility

The front of the ToughArmor includes a status LED when the drive is powered on, off and accessed. Active Power Technology (APT) allows the status LED to be on only when a hard drive is inserted into the enclosure. For drive security, the eagle-hook lock system on the tray makes sure your hard drives will not eject when not needed. Additionally, the 2 segment key lock provides extra protection to theft of hard drives as well as safeguards any sensitive data.
The EZ Slide Mini trays make drive interchangeability and maintenance completely hassle free, in case of a hard drive failure. With a simple swap of the hard drive, your overall down time is greatly reduced especially if this occurs when it is time sensitive. The trays are also designed to accommodate 7 to 15mm height hard drive and SSD, creating a 2.5" hot swap bay for any standard SATA hard drives and SSDs. While the tray is not installed to the MB991SK-B, the Anti-Dust Flap feature helps prevent dust from entering into the mobile rack.

Introducing the ICY DOCK FlexCage MB975SP-B Tray-less 5x3.5" HDD in 3x5.25" Bay SATA Hot Swap Rack / Cage / Module

Introducing the FlexCage MB975SP-B, a 5-in-3 Tray-less SATA 6Gbps HDD Cage for 3.5" SATA hard drives. The FlexCage focuses on maximizing storage density, while using the least amount of 5.25" device bays possible. To complement the device, the FlexCage uses features such as: Elegant plug & play Tray-less design, replaceable 80mm cooling fan, 3 speed fan control with Smart Cooling Technology, and full control of your drive with individual power buttons. With a large density of drive storage, it can be used in consumer, enthusiast, and system integrator systems that hot swap drives frequently. The FlexCage is compatible with most gaming / media / server computer cases, and it is perfect for file server application such as unRAID, Windows home server and others.
Space Saving & Tray-less Design

The MB975SP-B is designed to maximize space use by allowing up to 5 x 3.5" SATA III hard drives, while only consuming 3 x 5.25" device bays. The FlexCage also only requires three 15-pin power ports to power up to five 3.5" hard drives. Last but not least, the FlexCage is equipped with our proven tray-less technology - no screws or tools are necessary to insert or eject the drives, making hot swapping a completely hassle free experience.
Intelligent Cooling

The FlexCage MB975SP-B uses a large 80mm rear cooling fan to pull cool air from the front ventilation slots, over the drives, and exhaust the warm air out through the rear ventilation slots.
The MB975SP-B gives the user freedom to choose the speed of the fan, or to select "auto" so that the fan adjusts its speed using our Smart Cooling Technology. The auto function determines the temperature of your drives, and changes its RPM accordingly. This results in decreased power consumption, an increased lifespan for your fan, and unnecessary excess noise. Along with the auto function, the user can also choose a high setting, best used for intense applications such as home server use, or a low setting, best used with lighter work loads or silent operation, such as hourly back ups or audio recording / editing.
The included 80mm cooling fan is easily replaceable and maintainable, as it is compatible with most aftermarket cooling fans of the same size. To expand the range of compatible fans, both 2 and 3 pin standard fan power ports are available and can be easily accessed. To support the cooling system in place, the FlexCage body is built using full aluminum to help dissipate heat even further.
Elegantly Built for Enthusiasts

The FlexCage MB975SP-B features full aluminum housing and an all matte black exterior finish. With its minimally intrusive front design the FlexCage fits in seamlessly with premium enthusiast PC cases.
The MB975SP-B uses the popular Active Power Technology+ power system, giving you full control of your hard drive environment. To power up your hard drive, the front of the device includes individual power button for each drive and double as an LED indicator showing drive power and activity status. When one drive is turned on, the 80mm cooling fan will also turn on to start cooling your hard drive.

Similarly, each drive door has a multi-locking latch mechanism in order to prevent a door from being opened easily. Each door uses a metal latch assembly and strike plate in order to keep your drive secured and reliable while in operation. Anti-vibration technology is included on each of the doors and internally to help prevent reduction in drive performance. Lastly, to ensure a peace of mind, the FlexCage is backed with our 3 year warranty, equivalent to a hard drive's warranty.
