Product Overview


ToughArmor Backplane Cage

The 5.25” bay has been a long standard in computer history. It started from the 90s legacy industrial PC cases all the way to today’s Micro ATX cases. The 5.25” bay has been widely used for optical drives such as DVD and Blue-ray, or with even a single 3.5” hard drive with mobile rack. However, it is almost impossible to use a single 5.25” drive bay to create complex RAID storage until the MB996SP-6SB Rugged Full Metal 6 x 2.5” SATA Hard Drive & SSD Backplane. This is a device commercially designed for: Medical & Military systems, Media servers, IPCs, HTPC, and All-In-One computers, approved & used by Tier 1 companies.


High Capacity RAID Storage in Limited Space

Utilizing the standard 5.25” bay form factor, the compact design allows the enclosure to be used in various applications, catering to a wide audience. The MB996SP-6SB excels for use in advanced RAID applications such as building dual RAID 5 arrays or high performance 4 drives in RAID 0 plus RAID 1 array for back up, all in a single external 5.25” bay. The MB996SP-6SB is extremely useful for powerful small servers, gaming rigs, home servers or HTPC’s due to its high capacity and space saving design. It is also perfect for users who needs non-RAID JBOD storage and save different contents in different drive locations. It supports wide-range of applications which is the true value of the MB996SP-6SB.


Rock Solid Construction

Making sure your drives or expensive SSDs are in good hands and last as much as possible is carefully considered to any build and design. The MB996SP-6SB is capable of holding up in the various environments, with the rugged heavy duty full metal construction in the entirety of the body and its smaller components. The ToughArmor's rugged full metal design is also perfect for industrial and medical devices that may require a flammability rating as the full metal material is considered to be already compliant with flammability requirements. The metal material used grants heat dissipation transfer from the hard drives to the backplane cage. Lastly, Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT) and EMI grounding are used to ensure a stable environment for the hard drives or SSD’s used, dramatically improving reliability.


Absolute Control of your 2.5” hard drive or SSD

Bringing more utility your hard drives or SSDs, LED’s are installed into the front of the mobile rack to provide individual drive status information at all times. Active Power Technology (APT) allows each LED and the cooling fan to be active only when a hard drive is inserted into the same bay of the enclosure.


40cm Cooling Fan

A 40mm cooling fan is placed directly at the center of the rear panel, providing equivalent airflow throughout the entire cage. Depending on your needs, you may need the fan to be at a higher speed, or completely off for silent operation, and so a 3-Mode Fan Speed Control has been added to flexible in various situations.


Eagle Hook Design

Using the EZ Slide Micro trays makes drive interchangeability and maintenance completely hassle free. For drive security, the Eagle-hook lock system on the tray makes sure your hard drives will not eject when not needed. The trays are also designed to accommodate 5mm to 9.5mm height hard drive and SSD, creating a 2.5" hot swap bay for any standard SATA hard drives and SSDs.

• Fits 6 x 7mm to 9.5mm 2.5” SATA hard drives or SSD’s in a single 5.25” bay for high performance RAID applications.
• Full Metal construction with aluminum body, to protect your drives.
• Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT) - creates a safe environment for hard drives or SSDs.

Reviews
ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB, 2.5" SAS/SATA HDD/SSD Backplane Cage, Anti-Vibration, SATA 6Gbp/s, SAS 12Gbp/s is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works What can I say, connect 6 disks to 6 SATA ports, uses a 5.25 bay. Fan Whines a bit on High setting, other settings are quieter - you shouldn't really complain about noise though as I would expect the primary use of this would be for expanding storage on tower servers.
Date published: 2018-12-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality 6 bay 2.5" drive unit Got this unit to hold 6 120GB SATA3 SSD drives and it does a great job. Looks good, would like to have some integration with my raid card to show failed drives etc. - but you can't have everything and my card uses a proprietary connector anyway. Highly recommended
