The MB521SP-B is capable of holding up in the harshest environments, with the heavy duty metal casing throughout the entire device, it can be used in various enterprise systems including: image processing workstation, digital forensic workstation, 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 or SSDs throughout the mobile rack. In addition, Multi-Flow Technology routes air flow effectively for excellent passive cooling through meticulously designed front, rear, top and bottom ventilation slots.

Safety Enhanced Drive Guiding Mechanism

Since 2.5” SSDs and hard drives come with different drive heights and dimension may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, in order to protect your drives, we have designed a safety enhanced drive guiding mechanism that prevents accidental drive ejection. There are two drive guiding pecks on either side of the drive and a metal flap in the rear that adjusts automatically based on drive's height. Each guiding pecks clamp the drive tightly while the adjustable metal flap pushes the drive down, making a stable SATA connection. Ultimately, these features are designed to prevent unintended drive ejection that may result in possible data damage.
