    The ToughArmor MB873MP-B is a Ruggedized Eight Bay Removable M.2 NVMe SSD Enclosure that fits a single 5.25" optical drive bay of the computer system and supporting PCIe 4.0 64Gb/s data transfer rates through 8 x OCuLink (SFF-8612) connectors. It is made out of heavy-duty full-metal construction and uses removable M.2 SSD trays that support tool-less drive installation/ removal for effortless drive maintenance. In addition, the MB873MP-B is equipped with dual 40x20mm cooling fans in the rear to remove the heat generated by the high-speed PCIe 4.0 SSD for best cooling performance.

    High Storage Density for High-Performance PCs

    The ToughArmor MB873MP-B's Ultra-high storage density design makes it suitable for data-intensive systems with limited storage space, such as High-performance PCs, Compact Servers, Workstation PCs, and Data Centers.

    Supporting up to eight PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 drives in a single 5.25" device bay increases the storage efficiency of your system.

    Superior PCIe 4.0 Performance

    The MB873MP-B unlocks the full potential of the PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSDs by using 8x OCulink (SFF-8612) connection dedicated for each drive to allow up to 64Gbps transfer speeds per drive bay, which is two times faster than PCIe 3.0 and 10 times faster than SATA standards.

    State of the Art Tool-Less M.2 Drive Tray

    Typically, M.2 SSDs are installed on the motherboard or adapter card that is often secured by tiny screws and requires opening the computer case to access the drives. With the MB873MP-B's removable drive design, your M.2 NVMe SSDs are brought to the 5.25" optical bay of the computer system and lets you change the drives without opening up the case or using a tool, making drive maintenance an efficient, straightforward process.

    The ToughArmor MB873MP-B is equipped with a patent-pending M.2 adjustable locker for tool-less drive installation/ removal. Simply insert the M.2 NVMe SSD (2230, 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110), move the adjustable M.2 locker until it firmly secures the SSD and closes the lid. The whole process takes less than 10 seconds to complete, saving your valuable time and resources.

    High-performance Cooling System

    Powering up the eight M.2 NVMe SSD at once can accumulate heat. Therefore, we have included dual 40x20mm cooling fans, providing a massive amount of airflow throughout the entire enclosure to keep the M.2 NVMe solid-state drive at optimal operating temperatures, even under heavy load.

    The specialized slimline drive tray is made with thick aluminum and acts as a heatsink to dissipate heat generated by M.2 NVMe SSDs.

    The included thermal pad fill 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 the Harshest Environment

    Ensuring the enclosure can be relied upon for many years, the ToughArmor MB873MP-B can hold up in the harshest environment. It comes equipped with rugged full-metal protection throughout the entire device and tray, making it perfect for industrial devices that may require a flammability rating. The MB873MP-B is suitable for various enterprise systems, including the medical, military, law enforcement industries, and manufacturing conditions such as embedded control and factory automation systems.
