Embedded computer for rackmount applications in tight spaces introduced by Crystal Group

HIAWATHA, Iowa, 20 June 2014. Crystal Group Inc. in Hiawatha, Iowa, is introducing the RS111S13 rugged embedded computer for rackmount applications in tight confines like airborne command centers, unmanned vehicles, ships and submarines, server rooms, and process control centers.

The shallow depth computing system operates in harsh environments where size, weight, power, and moving part limitations are a concern. Weighing between 6 and 14 pounds, the embedded computer has a 13-inch chassis depth and offers standard rack mounting options.

"The size allows application nodes within cross domain networks to fit where other networked solutions may not fit," says Brian Rinehart, technical director at Crystal Group.

The RS111S13 is fanless and operates in temperatures from -15 to 55 degrees Celsius with rotating hard disks, and in -40 to 55 C with solid-state hard drives.

Compact construction of the RS111S13 supports two removable 2.5-inch SATA drives or one 3.5-inch hard disk drive, one mini PCI Express w/mSATA internal slot, two Ethernet ports, two front USB ports, as many as four back USB ports, as many as four Ethernet ports, DVI/I or VGA, HDMI, and VESA display port. The unit also offers low power AC or DC options.

"The RS111S13 is part of a cross domain networking system supporting the Solaris legacy operating system, as well as multiple versions of Windows and Linux operating systems," Rinehart says. "Having the ability to use a legacy operating system software saves application developers and end users a huge reinvestment of time and money by precluding software porting and additional software development."
