Tested and certified to MIL-STD-810F and 461E specifications with outstanding performance and reliability
Eching, Germany, August 24, 2011 – Today Kontron announced the 4U rackmount server KISS 4U PCI760 MIL-STD, the latest addition to the KISS server family which is specifically designed for long-term operation in land and naval based defense applications. This server platform has been tested and certified according to the MIL-STD-810F and 461E specifications and can be configured application-ready ensuring efficient development and time-to-market for military applications with the highest demands on performance, ruggedness and reliability.
To ensure the highest level of operational readiness, even under harsh environmental conditions, the Kontron KISS 4U PCI760 MIL-STD has undergone the testing procedures established by MIL-STD-810F. In addition to operational readiness in extremely high and low temperatures (-5 to +60°C operating, -25 to +85°C non- operating), repeated tests for shock and vibration resistance were also carried out. Further testing included the electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) and electro-magnetic radiation (EMS) tests which were executed according to the MIL-STD-461E norm and test specifications. Through these tests, the Kontron KISS 4U PCI760 MIL-STD is ideally equipped for reliable operation in challenging military applications.
The Kontron KISS systems, designed for continuous operation, offer an MTBF of 50,000 hours (approximately 5.7 years non-stop operation), high availability and low maintenance costs. The fans used for the housing are field replaceable units and are integrated on the front panel for easy removal and replacement during operation which effectively reduces the time and effort required for maintenance. The lockable front cover offers IP20 protection and optionally IP52 protection is available against the dust and damp penetration. Furthermore, the power supply not only fulfils the requirements of MIL-STD-810F and 461E specifications but because of its integration in the housing is also a space-saving feature.
With its built–in Intel® AMT 3.0 remote management engine the Kontron KISS 4U PCI760 MIL-STD offers enhanced security, remote manageability and cost savings for the embedded computing market. System managers benefit from Intel® AMT 3.0 because they can remotely carry out tasks such as installation of a new OS or setting BIOS parameters without the need for additional remote management hardware or an on-site presence. With the Intel® Trusted Execution Technology and the on-board Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2), the Kontron KISS Server also offers high confidentiality for sensitive data transmission.
