Fulfilling Multiple Configuration Needs for Industrial Applications
Taipei, August 1, 2011 – Advantech, the leading embedded platform and integration services provider, has developed a new 4U rugged rackmount/ tower server chassis. The HPC-7480 supports multiple configurations, has long-term availability support, and can fulfill a variety of customer application needs. HPC-7480 is compatible with different form factors, has a single power supply but supports optional redundant power supply, hot-swap SATA/SAS hard drives, and cooling fans that deliver 24/7 non-stop operation. The system is designed specifically for high-growth sectors in the market including: database, firewall/networking, computationally intense (e.g.: AOI), and storage intense (e.g.: IP CAM, NVR/DVR surveillance, FA/MA managed) applications. These configurations are supported by Advantech’s CTOS (Configure-To-Order-Service) in regional sites located near customers.
Advantech Server-grade IPC Family’s First 4U Chassis
HPC-7480, launching in August, is a 4U rackmount/ tower chassis fitting a variety of form factors ranging from ATX, to CEB, to EATX. It features eight 3.5” SAS/SATA hot-swap hard drive cages with a maximum capacity of 16 TB; and three 5.25” drive bays. HPC-7480 has a 665 W single power supply and supports optional 760W (2+1) redundant power supplies with a power distribution board that optimizes power efficiency; and it supports four hot-swap 8038 fan modules. Its tidy appearance masks a rugged mechanical design practical for industrial needs. HPC-7480 can be secured by a front-bezel lock, preventing unauthorized access during normal operation. Also, there are two USB ports and three 5.25” drive bays on the front, as well as LED indicators to monitor LAN, power, and HDD status.
