Advantech, Irvine, Calif., launched the 4U, dual-node, short-depth, industrial chassis ACP-4D00, designed for high-end machine automation applications that require two computers in one piece of equipment for workload sharing or parallel computing.
The innovative dual-node architecture allows users to install two half-size slot SBCs in two sub-systems and integrate them in a compact 4U cage. Each node supports a CPU card with desktop Core i processor, 6-slot backplane and up to 350W power supply, so the computer node can be used for either traditional control applications or for high-end CPU/GPU computing.
Plus, it’s easy to integrate into equipment enclosures, leaving more space for air flow, device placement and cable routing. Tool-less design allows users to pull out the sub-system, open its top lid or take out the system fan just by loosening thumb screws; no screw driver needed.
ACP-4D00 is an ideal industrial chassis solution for high-end equipment builders.
