Blazer Ruggedized Portable Enclosure Design

How does the Blazer2, 2.5” Enclosures Design Help Protect Your Hard Drive?

The safety-centric mechanical design of Blazer 2, 2.5” enclosures provides critical hardware protection features including:

Secure shock-absorbent Mechanism

The full-length bridgeboard provides additional protection by supporting the entire length of the hard drive. Integral rails hold the hard drive chassis firmly in place eliminating stress on the bridgeboard and preventing damage due to impact or violent movement.

Shock-absorbent Protection

The shock-absorbent dampers strip between the bridgeboard and chassis offers additional resistance against accidental drops and bumps. The disposition of the hard drive and housing profile form an anti-shock chamber to cushion the blow of potential impacts.

Thermal Protection and load-bearing case

The precision density of the RUGGED ALUMINUM case provides excellent heat dissipation and is strong enough to bear external weight.
