Marketing Information

The ToughArmor MB924IP-B supports 24 x 2.5" SAS/SATA SSD/HDD up to 7mm in height and only uses 3 x 5.25" device bays. It has 6 x MiniSAS HD (SFF-8643) connectors in the rear to support 24 x drives with up to 12Gbps transfer speed per drive, significantly reducing the cable clutter to improve system airflow and offer easy cable management. The large 80mm fan with 3-Mode fan speed control working along with intelligently placed ventilation holes keeps your drives in optimal temperature. To further improve reliability and security, the housing and trays are made with ruggedized full metal construction to ensure long-lasting durability. Moreover, with the removable EZ-Slide Nano trays, you can interchange drives within seconds without open the PC case.

High Storage Density for High-Performance PCs

The ToughArmor MB924IP-B's high storage density design makes it perfect for high-performance PCs, workstation PCs, gaming rigs, home servers, and data centers that require high IOPS, high capacity, and low latency storage access.

MB924IP-B connects 24 x 2.5" SAS/SATA SSD/HDD with only 6 x MiniSAS HD (SFF-8643) & 6 x SATA 15 pin power connector for easy cable management and better system airflow. These are essential for high-performance PC builds. The MB924IP-B supports data transfer speed up to 12Gbps per SAS drive and 6Gbps per SATA drive.

Interchange Drives without Opening Your Computer

With the removable EZ-Slide Nano 2.5" drive trays, managing drives couldn't be easier. Whether you are upgrading new drives, replacing a failed drives, or performing a simple maintenance routine, the removable tray design lets you replace drives within seconds through the frontal 5.25" bay without shutting down the system or opening the computer case. The EZ-Slide Nano tray supports 2.5" SAS/SATA SSD/HDD up to 7mm in height.

The eagle-hook tray latch system makes sure the drives will lock in place once inserted into the enclosure, making it suitable for enterprise and industrial's mission-critical applications.

Maximum Reliability and Stability

Ensuring the enclosure can be relied upon for many years, the ToughArmor MB924IP-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 high build quality is suitable for various enterprise systems, including the medical, military, law enforcement industries, and manufacturing conditions such as embedded control and factory automation systems.

Optimal Cooling Efficiency & Flexible Settings

Powering up 24 x drives at once can accumulate excessive heat. Therefore, we have strategically placed a large 80mm cooling fan in the rear to provide airflow throughout the cage. With 3-Mode fan speed control (H, L, and OFF), users have the flexibility to change the speed depending on the workflow and preferences. For further expandability, the stock fan can be easily replaced with most aftermarket 80mm cooling fans, giving your preferred fan options for improved cooling performance or quieter operation. For most of the applications, drive status light is an important feature to monitor drive's activity. Each drive LED's brightness can be adjusted 100%, 50% or 0% per user's preference.
