Kontron Australia announces the introduction of a new range of 4U rackmount servers designed specifically for military server applications.  

KISS 4U PCI760 MIL-STD is the newest range of 4U rack mount systems introduced to the KISS server family, and is specifically designed for long-term operation in land and naval based defence applications.  

Tested and certified according to the MIL-STD-810F and 461E specifications, the new server platform can be configured application-ready, ensuring efficient development and time-to-market for military applications with high demands on performance, ruggedness and reliability.  

The Kontron KISS 4U PCI760 MIL-STD 4U rack mount servers have undergone the testing procedures established by MIL-STD-810F to ensure a high level of operational readiness even under harsh environmental conditions.  

These testing procedures included operational readiness tests in extremely high and low temperatures (-5ºC to +60ºC operating, -25ºC to +85ºC non-operating) as well as repeated tests for shock and vibration resistance. Electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) and electro-magnetic radiation (EMS) tests were also executed according to the MIL-STD-461E norm and test specifications.  

These elaborate tests ensure that the Kontron KISS 4U PCI760 MIL-STD is ideally equipped for reliable operation in challenging military applications.
