Product Details

HSB4SATSASBA Hot Swap Hard Drive Bay

The HSB4SATSASBA Removable 4-drive Backplane makes inserting and removing drives fast and easy, by turning three 5.25" bays into a hot-swappable interface for up to four 3.5” SATA or SAS hard drives (HDD).

For added versatility, the hot swap bay can interface with SATA I/II/III and SAS I/II hard drives -- an ideal solution for enterprise system applications.

For a quick and secure method of installing and removing drives, the backplane features ejection levers and a key-lock design. To help prevent drive failure, the bay provides drive cooling with a built-in fan and excellent heat dissipation with a vented Aluminium enclosure.

The HSB4SATSASBA is backed by a 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
