Eurotech's High Performance 1U Industrial PCs help keep costs to a minimum

14 July 2009

With a vast range of high power PC platforms available, users are now looking more closely at the lifetime costs of the installed equipment.

Eurotech’s APOLLO and GEMINI Industrial PCs are designed for 24/7 operation in industrial environments. Offering unrivalled power and flexibility coupled with cool and quiet operation within a 1U high, 19” rack mount enclosure they are ideal for applications in Audio Visual, Telecommunications, Industrial Control or Gateway Routing and Networking.

Perfect for installations where space is at a premium and low maintenance costs are paramount these industrial PCs offer lifetime savings for the user on many levels.

 The space saving 1U high chassis design means less cabinet real estate is needed to house devices. This low profile is not at the expense of flexibility or performance, with a range of processor options coupled to comprehensive peripheral connectivity and 2 PCI slots available in both the APOLLO and GEMINI units

 The low power consumption of the units (an APOLLO ICE typically uses around 45W) result direct, recurring savings on energy costs. This is especially true in applications where multiple PCs are installed within an air conditioned environment as the savings occur not only due to reduced power consumption of the units themselves, but also due to the corresponding reduction in HVAC plant running costs resulting from the lower heat dissipation from the units.

 The rugged, industrialised design of the devices means that they are inherently less susceptible to failures due to shock and vibration. The option for fanless, diskless operation (using embedded operating systems running from solid state drives) also offers significant savings in lifetime maintenance costs.

 Eurotech's foundations in the supply of industrial and embedded solutions based upon our own processor board designs offers unparalleled long term support and maintainability, significantly reducing the costs associated with software maintenance tasks simply to keep up with hardware changes over the lifetime of the installation.

The combination of compact design, low power consumption, high reliability and unrivalled long term product availability and support makes the Eurotech range of 1U industrial PCs a compelling offering when the total cost of ownership of a PC system is considered.
