Rugged Embedded Computers

The SE16 Sealed Embedded Computer has an all-aluminum construction with custom EMI gasketing to seal the chassis, allowing it to operate while fully submerged in water up to one meter (immersion protection rated to IP67). It is designed as convection cooled, enabling the unit to operate in extended temperature ranges of -40C up to +55C. The SE16 is powered by a MINI-ITX Intel® i7 mobile processer and X9SPV Supermicro motherboard, with a 1 PCIX16 expansion slot, and six 2.5″ SSD HDDs. This system is engineered specifically for high performance computing applications in maritime environments where performance, ruggedness, and reliability are imperative, especially those that include dirt, dust, sand, salt, fog, and water.

The RE0814 is a rugged embedded computer with no moving parts. The fanless computer is built of study aircraft grade aluminum, fueled by efficient Intel® Core™ i3 or powerful Core™ i7 processor options, supports up to four solid state hard drives, runs on either an AC or DC power supply, and can be panel or rack mounted. The RE0814 is a cost-effective solution for harsh environments and critical around the clock land, sea, air, and space operations.
