Industrial-grade Mini-ITX chassis

11 June 2008 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

Advantech has introduced two new industrial-grade wall-mount/desktop chassis built to support Mini-ITX motherboards. Featuring brand new designs, these compact chassis offer an excellent thermal solution to improve the system's heat dissipation performance and reduce mean-time-to-repair (MTTR).

The ARK-6610 and ARK-6620 are solid industrial-grade chassis with attractive, user friendly exterior design. Their mechanical design accommodates Mini-ITX mother-boards and delivers 180 W of ATX/PFC power performance. The shockproof disk drive housing and rubber cushions protect the internal 3,5" drive bay against harsh industrial environments. Both units feature a robust hook on the front to secure the AC power cord.

The integrated nylon net air filter is more durable than the traditional sponge material, and also much easier to clean. Both models comply with RoHS specifications and are fully compatible with Advantech's line of industrial Mini-ITX motherboards. Also, in consideration for customers wishing to place corporate logos, space is reserved on both chassis.

The units feature a front-accessible I/O interface design to facilitate operations and reduce system downtime. All of the I/O interfaces from the Mini-ITX motherboards and expansion cards are built into the front panel, providing for quick data inputs, backups and transfers. The various cutouts can accommodate different applications without customising the chassis. The LED indicators for power status and HDD activity are also mounted on the front of the chassis for efficient system monitoring. The system power switch and the ATX power supply are all located on the front for easy operation.

Since the ARK-6610 is designed for Pentium 4 performance up to 2,4 GHz, and the ARK-6620 for Pentium M performance up to Core 2 Duo T7400, both chassis provide an excellent thermal design for efficient heat dissipation. The 6610 includes one 52,5 CFM fan while the 6620 included two 27,27 CFM fans to facilitate system ventilation. The streamlined, rear-in/front-out air flow design permits processor heat dissipation up to 68 W (ARK-6610) and 35 W (ARK-6620) to support intensive, high-performance processors. In addition, both models are equipped with an internal thermal sensor and an LED indicator on the front to detect and alert for system over-heating.
