ToughArmor MB092VK-B
  • Note: To utilize an M.2, U.2, or U.3 NVMe SSD in a PCIe 16x or 8x slot, the motherboard or add-on card must support PCIe Bifurcation. This mode divides PCIe lanes into specific configurations like x4, x4, x4, x4 for a 16x slot or x4, x4 for an 8x slot, ensuring the SSD can be read by the system. For compatible hardware, please refer to the FAQ section. If your hardware is not listed there, please contact us for assistance.

The ToughArmor MB092VK-B is a Ruggedized Removable DUAL U.2/U.3 NVMe PCIe 3.0/4.0 Mobile Rack Enclosure, supporting up to 64Gbps data transfer speeds through Slimline SAS (SFF-8654 4i) connection. This drive mobile rack fits an external 3.5” drive bay (floppy bay) space. With the advantage of removable drive trays in the frontal drive bay space, users can effortlessly access enterprise U.2 or U.3 drives without disassembling the computer case.


Innovative Removable Drive Design

U.2 NVMe SSDs are typically designed to be installed internally, which can be tough to access when maintenance is needed. With the MB092VK-B, the U.2 drives are brought to the frontal 3.5” drive bay space where they can be easily accessed, making it a more efficient and straightforward process. In addition, each removable drive tray can support U.2 SSDs from 5mm to 9.5mm in height.-inch and M.2 installed simultaneously. Example Text

Superior Performance

To unlock the full performance of 64Gbps under PCIe 4.0 specification, the MB092VK-B uses 2x Slimline SAS (SFF-8654 4i) connectors and is also backward compatible with U.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD up to 32Gbps.

Full Metal Protection 

Ensuring the drive enclosure can be relied upon for many years, the MB092VK-B is constructed out of heavy-duty metal throughout the entire device, including the drive trays, which are capable of holding up in harsh environments, such as military and medical systems that require a flammability rating. 

Optimal Cooling Efficiency

The built-in 25mm cooling fan efficiently disperses the heat generated by the U.2 NVMe SSDs through the intelligently-placed ventilation holes around the enclosure. To adjust the fan speed, simply reposition the fan speed jumper in the rear (High, Low, & Off).

Exceptional Product Compatibility 

The MB092VK-B is compatible with motherboards, RAID/HBA cards, and M.2 adapters from major brands including Adaptec, Areca, Broadcom, HighPoint, Supermicro, and more. This compatibility gives you the freedom to choose from a wide range of hardware options, moving beyond the constraints of single-brand system configurations.

Packed with Features

The Slimline-SAS and SATA power connectors are compatible with cables with a locking latch design. So once the cables are connected, they will be secure in place. 

An LED status light built into the tray lets you know when your drive is powered up and in use. The LED will automatically shut off when no drive is installed to save power.

For an additional physical layer of security, the included 2-segment key-lock can be used to protect against unwanted access and secure drives in rough environments, such as military applications and in-vehicle PCs.

(Optional) M.2 NVMe SSD to U.2 NVMe SSD Adapter

Converting your M.2 NVMe SSD into U.2 NVMe SSD with EZConvert MB705M2P-B adapter offers tool-less SSD installation and comes with a large heatsink designed explicitly for high-speed M.2 NVMe SSDs.

(Optional) 3.5" to 5.25" Drive Bay Bracket 

Converting your 5.25" device bay into a 3.5" device bay with Flex-Fit MB343SP drive bay bracket, it features a solid one-piece design with additional dual 2.5" drive slots for extra drive storage.

Need Support for 15mm Thick U.2/U.3 SSDs? 

If your U.2/U.3 NVMe SSD has a height of 15mm, the ToughArmor MB105VP-B dual bay U.2/U.3 NVMe SSD mobile rack enclosure for 5.25" bays has got you covered. It accommodates two U.2/U.3 NVMe SSDs ranging from 5-15mm in height. Plus, it's equipped with a high-performance 40x20mm cooling fan that can reduce your SSD's operating temperature by up to 5°C compared to a fan-less SSD mobile rack enclosure. Perfect for applications or systems demanding high SSD capacity and efficient cooling.

Wide Range of Compatibility

EZ-Slide Micro Tray MB992TRAY-B offers effortless interchangeability among different ToughArmor models.

Customizable ICY DOCK Drive Enclosures: Tailored to Meet TAA & UL Certification Standards and More! 

At ICY DOCK, we understand the paramount importance of adhering to various industry and safety standards. While our standard products are already crafted with the highest quality in mind, we also provide our customers with the option to customize ICY DOCK drive enclosures and mobile racks to meet their specific certification requirements. This includes standards such as TAA and UL to wide temperature tests.

Our dedicated team is fully prepared to adjust product materials and designs to ensure complete compliance. Furthermore, we offer comprehensive guidance to our clients throughout the certification process. Our goal is to not only meet precise specifications but also ensure that our products successfully pass stringent tests. Below, you'll find a detailed table listing all the optional certifications that can be tested with our customizable solutions. 

*The drive mobile rack enclosure needs to have a customized front water-resistant panel added to pass the IEC 60529 (IPX5) certification. Water resistance refers to preventing water or dust from entering the enclosure through the front panel when the product is installed in the chassis, rather than making the entire enclosure water-resistant.

Customizing ICY DOCK products for specific certifications involves fees for the creation of the certificates, including necessary testing. Please note that some certificates may require recurring fees to remain valid. For more details and inquiries,please contact us at
