MPL – Rugged Embedded Server

MXCS: Rugged Embedded Server Solution
with fanless Intel® Xeon™ Processor

 

The MXCS is a high performance, low power and highly integrated rugged Embedded Server, built in a special designed aluminum or MIL IP67 housing. This allows to operate the MXCS in a moderate or harsh environment without fan or air vents. The design integrates standard connectors for easy connection or lockable headers, depending on housing choice. Therefore, the MXCS board can be used for any Server application where a complete solution is needed.

The MXCS is a high performance, low power and highly integrated rugged Embedded Server, built in a special designed aluminum or MIL IP67 housing. This allows to operate the MXCS in a moderate or harsh environment without fan or air vents. The design integrates standard connectors for easy connection or lockable headers, depending on housing choice. Therefore, the MXCS board can be used for any Server application where a complete solution is needed.

MXCS Highlights

The MXCS housings offer space for up to 8 x 2.5″ SSD. With the internal expansion possibilities over PCI/104-Express interface and the four PCI-Express Mini Card slots, there are unlimited expansion possibilities available. Particular precautions in the design have been taken that the entire system EMC is within the CE and FCC limits and capable to meet the MIL-STD810, 461, 704, 1275, as well as standards like IEC60945 or EN50155.

Key features are:

  • Intel Xeon CPU, up to 16 cores
  • ECC DDR4 up to 128GB
  • Up to six 1Gbit Ethernet ports
  • Up to two 10Gbit Ethernet ports
  • PCIe x16 expansion
  • Conductive cooling concept

The MXCS rugged Server Family has been designed to withstand harsh environments and extreme temperature conditions. The special rugged design, combined with the best industrial-grade components, offer high reliability and long-term performance.

The MXCS is available for different Industries and is the perfect embedded computer solution for indus­trial environments, railway applications, MIL/COTS applications, or whenever a rugged long-term avail­able computer is needed.
