Hiawatha, IA, February 06, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- In an effort to provide enhanced server capabilities, Crystal Group proudly announces the newest addition to the Crystal Group server family and best in class RS line, the RS232-SF.
The RS232-SF server is designed for performance, ruggedness, and reliability. With a super-short depth of 12.5 inches and front I/O, the RS232-SF is an ideal computer for shipboard, airborne, and land- based applications - anywhere shallow depth and rugged construction are necessary. If you require performance in a variety of environments, the RS232- SF offers extended capability with shock/vibe rating of 6 GRMS in combined wheeled vehicle and aircraft profiles, a temperature range of –20oC up to 60oC (- 4 to140oF) and multiple power options. The RS232- SF is designed and being tested to meet MIL-STDs 810F, 167-1, 461E, and 901D requirements. The RS232-SF is available with the following processor options: Intel® Core(TM) 2 Duo, Dual Core Intel® Xeon® and AMD Opteron(TM). Expansion choices of one PCIe slot with two PCI slots or two PCI-X slots with one PCI slot mean greater adaptability. As always, each Crystal server comes with a standard three-year warranty. On-site, next day and extended warranties are available with CrystalGuard(TM) coverage. Configuration Management is also available.
The RS232-SF chassis side walls are assembled using milled HS Aircraft Aluminum and internal support structures, allowing the server to operate under extreme conditions. The thicker aluminum construction is designed to limit weight, improve thermal conductivity, improve vibration performance, and enhance electrical conductivity. The RS232-SF server also utilizes reliable hardware solutions specifically designed to meet the users' operational environment. Crystal Group's best in class RS products are produced with the end user in mind. The growing number of requirements in military and industrial communities requires solutions capable of operating in some of the most challenging environments. "Our engineering staff creates made to order configurations to meet every customer's need, from our basic building blocks of standard product offerings to customized Crystal designed servers," said Jim Shaw, Vice President of Engineering. "Our best in class RS line serves a market segment where customers value reliability, performance, and ruggedness in environmental extremes. Crystal Group fills a gap where no other computer manufacturers have chosen to go, proving to be very valuable to our customers."
