Crystal Group Inc. has launched a new range of rugged embedded computers designed for use in environments with restrictions on moving parts and physical footprint.

Featuring a compact fanless design with no moving parts, the new RE0814 rugged embedded computer has an exceptional operating temperature of 85°C, incorporates a new powerful Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, and is packaged into a small rugged 1U short chassis measuring 27.9 x 35.5cm.

The RE0814's billet construction is made from machined strain hardened 6061T651 structural aircraft aluminium. Weighing only 3.4kg, the compact build includes four SATA 6.35cm solid state drives and five USB ports including four on the back and one on the front. The unit is also available with up to four Ethernet ports and a VGA or DVI-I port.

Finding application in the power distribution market, the new RE0814 rugged embedded computers present an attractive solution for programs with Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) criteria. The computers can be rack mounted or bolted to a wall or cabinet door, allowing for space-optimised installation in any environment. The RE0814 is tested to IEEE 1613 and IEC 61850-3 standards.

Key features and benefits of the new RE0814 rugged embedded computers include all-aluminium chassis footprint; optimised for remote applications requiring powerful processing on a tight power budget; next generation rugged and reliable computing technology providing enhanced computer power in harsh environments; innovative packaging and attention to important details making the product run cooler and perform at wider temperature extremes; and design approach limiting deflection and extending circuit board solder joint life to provide superior processing power in a rugged package.

Crystal Group is represented in Australia and New Zealand by Metromatics .
