The SS16 sealed server is all-aluminum construction with gasketing to seal the server chassis from electromagnetic interference (EMI). Quick-locking military circular connectors provide I/O, and convection cooling enables the sealed server to operate in temperatures from -40 to 55 degrees Celsius. The 21-pound unit has immersion protection rated to IP68.
