  • Built-in backlit LCD display shows hard drive and fan status (temperature, fan speed, up-time, etc.)
  • Audible warning buzzers for temperature and fan failure
  • Trayless design: hard drives are not mounted into separate trays/enclosures

The HSB110SATBK 5.25-inch Trayless Hot Swap Mobile Rack for SATA Hard Drives (with built-in LCD) enables users to quickly swap 3.5-inch SATA hard drives (HDD) from a standard 5.25-inch bay.

The mobile rack features an integrated, backlit LCD screen that displays the operating status of the hard drive, monitoring the drive temperature, cooling fan speed and continuous up-time of the HDD. The mobile rack also features customizable warning thresholds that trigger buzzer warnings in the event the HDD gets too hot or the cooling fan fails.

To maximize performance and utilize the full speed potential of your SATA III hard drives, this HDD Backplane supports SATA III for transfer speeds up to 6 Gbps when paired with a compatible controller.

Removing/replacing hard drives from the mobile rack is as simple as opening the front panel door and pulling the drive out, then sliding a new HDD into the opening and closing the door. The trayless design makes the process of changing hard drives quick and painless, as there are no enclosures or trays/caddies to deal with.

Applications

  • Add additional hot swap bays to a server or workstation
  • Be able to quickly replace individual drives from a storage array, with no system down time
  • Use with systems that need a standalone hardware monitor for hard drives
  • Use in operating environments with potentially high/unpredicable temperatures

The StarTech.com Advantage

  • A built-in, backlit LCD display enables monitoring the condition of the hard drive and cooling fan even in poorly lit areas
  • Maximize performance, with file transfer speeds up to 6Gbps when paired with SATA III HDD and controller
  • Audible warnings and customizable warning thresholds to suit almost any operating scenario, to ensure optimum drive performance

Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a hard drive rack, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • SATA and SAS cables
  • Hard drives
  • Hard drive rack

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the cables, hard drives, and hard drive rack in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
  • Use a different cable, hard drive, and hard drive rack in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test the hard drive and hard drive rack, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • To check Disk Management, press the Windows key + R, type diskmgmt.msc, and press Enter.  Check to see if your hard drive is listed.
  • If the hard drive is listed with unallocated space, it needs to be formatted. Right-click unallocated and click New Simple Volume. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the reformatting.

Note: Formatting a hard drive erases all of the data on it. Make sure that you back up all of your data before you reformat the hard drive.

  • If the hard drive is listed as healthy but does not have a drive letter assigned to it, for example, C:, right-click healthy and click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click Add, assign a drive letter, and click OK.

Note: A formatted hard drive will not show up in Computer or My Computer until it has a drive letter assigned to it.
