SATA Mobile Rack III
The SATA Mobile Rack III is our third generation of removable drive system for 3.5" or 2.5" SATA/SAS hard drives. Constructed in precision machined aluminum with an open frame design, this new Mobile Rack is lighter, stronger, more durable and more efficient heat dissipation. The SATA Mobile Rack III is designed for convenience and ease of use. The drive tray is designed for mounting a 3.5" or a 2.5" SATA/SAS hard drive/SSD. Once the drive is mounted onto the tray, the drive can be added or removed from the drive bay just like a using a VHS cassette. Drive tray is equipped with a lock that prevent the removal of the drive from the system.
