Rackmount computer with SysCool thermal-management system
The U.S.-assembled M2U-20 from Chassis Plans is a revision-controlled mil-grade rackmount computer for use in rugged, computationally intense military applications that consumes limited rack space. It weighs 24 pounds (weight differs on configuration) and contains the proprietary SysCool thermal management system; SysCool, says the company, extends the life of the computing system, reduces power consumption, and lowers overall system noise levels. The M2U-20 is ISO 9001:2008-certified and ITAR-registered.
The computer has four central processing unit (CPU) options – single Intel Core i5 or i7, single Intel Xeon E3 series, single or dual Intel Xeon E5 series, and high-performance motherboard options – for applicability in airborne operations, land-based operations, seaborne operations, telemetry, diagnostics, simulation, imaging, persistent surveillance, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and automation. Additional features include three horizontal or several vertical plug-in card slots and a single or redundant power supply. Drive options include four 3.5-inch drives that are fixed or removable; four 2.5-inch removable drive sleds that are expandable to 10 times; and 12 2.5-inch removable drive sleds. All drives are shock-mounted. The system is also tested to or designed to meet the MIL-STD-810G environmental standard.
