RS37AS17 Rugged 3U Server

Smarter with Intel®. Stronger with Crystal Group. Energy is essential to modern day living and homeland security. Power companies are undergoing a major transformation of aged computing infrastructure to protect energy resources now and for years to come. Traditional off-the-shelf computer hardware cannot provide the performance and long-term reliability required by substations today. Crystal Group ruggedized solutions, powered by Intel, offer long life in a robust server – surviving treacherous conditions such as extreme temperature, moisture, and dust. Crystal Group combines Intel technologies into highly ruggedized hardware to support state-of-the-art power grid capabilities such as constant monitoring, real-time alerts, automation, and remote-control management. This ensures the entire supply chain – from power generation through transmission and distribution to end use – keeps working efficiently, securely, and cost-effectively.
