Industrial server packs quad-core power

26 November 2008 Computer/Embedded Technology

The KISS 1U PCI-760 packs scalable performance up to the Intel Core2 Quad processor Q9300 with four x 2,5 GHz performance, as well as 8 GB of DDR2 dual-channel RAM into an industrial server with an installation height of just 44 mm. This makes it a suitable fit for densely packed realtime embedded multiprocessing applications, such as: industrial test and measurement with simultaneous data collection and evaluation; control and visualisation of imaging technologies in medical and industrial applications; and for the broad field of simulation technology and applications that require parallel processing of several video and/or audio streams.

Security applications suitable for the server also require reliable, space-saving server cluster solutions for video surveillance with automatic image recognition/face recognition in facilities management, public areas and subway/railway stations as well as mission-critical solutions, such as railroad control centres.

The server comes with built-in Intel Active Management Technology 3.0 remote management engine that offers enhanced security and remote management for easy maintenance and high system availability. Remotely carrying out tasks such as installing a new OS, or setting BIOS parameters without the need for additional remote management hardware, or an on-site presence, is of particular benefit for applications with densely populated server racks where the individual servers are difficult to reach.

For applications that need the dedicated processing power of high-end 3D GPUs, there is an optional PEG interface. The server also offers an optional one x PCI Express x four slot, as well as two x PCI 32 Bit slots, six x USB 2.0, two x Gbit Ethernet, one x VGA and two x serial ports. In addition to its shock- and vibration-protected internal 3,5” HDD, it has enough space to accommodate another 3,5” HDD or 2 x 2,5” HDDs, also shock- and vibration-protected.

The optional KISS Stor Slim RAID 1 sub-system provides enhanced data safety via 2 x 2,5” HDDs in a single, hot-swappable carrier. System security is provided by Intel Trusted Execution Technology and an onboard trusted platform module for software and data protection. The PSU with a controlled fan has optional 24 V d.c. and 48 V d.c. for direct connection to industrial power grids.

With a mean time between failures of 50 000 hours (approximately 5,7 years of continuous operation) the robust server systems ensure high availability and minimum maintenance and operate reliably in temperatures up to 45°C. The temperature-controlled and quiet fans are also hot-swappable for easier servicing. The KISS systems come with either a desktop housing or a housing for mounting in a 19-inch cabinet. OEM custom designs are also available upon request. The front panel, which is lockable, offers IP2x protection and optional IP5x. Designed for continuous operation, the servers are CE certified and UL suitable.

The server supports Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 200x Server and Vista, and is available as a preconfigured standard system or can be customised as needed and delivered as a tested and independently certified solution.
