Rugged server for industrial, wheeled vehicle, and aircraft applications introduced by Crystal Group
HIAWATHA, Iowa, 4 June 2010. Crystal Group Inc. in Hiawatha, Iowa, is introducing the IS100 rugged server for industrial applications, as well as wheeled vehicles and aircraft avionics.
The IS100 1U Industrial Server (IS) from Crystal Group, which is for industrial, vehicle, and avionics applications, is designed to a shock and vibration rating to 1.5 GRMS in combined wheeled vehicle and aircraft profiles, and operates in temperatures from 0 to 50 degrees Celsius. The rugged computer is available with the Intel 5500 series socket 1366 LGA microprocessor architecture and features embedded dual, quad, and hexa core CPU technology.
This 20-inch industrial-grade server is designed to MIL-STD-810 and is tested to FCC class A emission requirements. Expansion choices include one full-height 3/4 length slot, two 2.5- or 3.5-inch drives, or four 2.5-inch drives and a slimline CD/DVD. These drives are removable and hot swappable.
The IS100 replaces Crystal's current Industrial line, while complimenting their existing rugged RS line, and is for applications that require less rugged construction than the RS line. The IS rugged server is computationally equivalent to the RS server.
"Not everyone needs a server you can run over with a Deuce and a half," says Crystal Vice President of Engineering Jim Shaw. "Crystal Group's IS100 was designed for just those industrial applications." For more information contact Crystal Group online at www.crystalrugged.com.
