Industrial Computer Platforms Enable Energy Efficient and Secure Solutions

The energy industry is growing

With fossil fuels being depleted at an ever increasing rate, energy is becoming the decisive economic factor. In the emerging markets, energy consumption is growing exponentially. Many alternative energy companies are creating new economies in order to facilitate a more sustainable energy market.

In contrast to other energy sources which are concentrated in a limited number of countries renewable energy resources and significant opportunities for energy efficiency exist over wide geographical areas. Rapid deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency, and technological diversification of energy sources, would result in significant energy, security and economic benefits.

Demands of energy applications

Many different criteria are mandatory for an application in energy:  Computing solutions have to stand up to the rigors of shock and vibration, temperature, dust and other environmental conditions. Reliable extended life and guaranteed long-term availability of components must be supported.

Best practices must also include a spectrum of design features such as ‘wartungsfrei’ (maintenance-free) components, experience with ruggedized enclosures, thermal management as well as worldwide technical support.

Kontron’s industrial computer platforms are designed to enable secure and energy efficient solutions in the energy market in applications ranging from central control computers to distributed sub stations in the field—quickly, reliably and cost-effectively.

Industrial computer platforms can be installed throughout the industry: Oil &Gas, Wind and Solar Power as well as in biogas, power plants and in ‘smart grids’, a digital energy system that provides more efficient and reliable electricity and reduces carbon footprints.
