Kontron: KISS Rackmount PC in compact 1U format for compute-intensive automation applications

Kontron presents the KISS 1U Short V3 CFL Rackmount PC, a particularly compact member of the KISS product family for demanding industrial applications. The robust and space-saving 1U industrial computer features a powerful configuration and almost noiseless operation. This makes it particularly suitable for use in industrial automation, process control, high-end image processing and for SCADA/MES applications as well as in operator-related areas such as process control and the medical environment.

Its powerful 8th Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processor with Intel C246 Express chipset, as well as the modular design in a 44-millimeter-high and 350-millimeter-deep 1U chassis, make the new, space-saving short version of the KISS ("Kontron Industrial Silent Server") a reliable, scalable solution. Thanks to removable drives and various expansion slots, the system can be flexibly adapted to customer requirements. The innovative thermal concept enables 24/7 operation in a temperature range of up to 50°C.

The KISS product family meets the high requirements in extreme environments: Thanks to the effective cooling concept, the rackmount system can operate in a temperature range from 0°C to plus 50°C during continuous operation. The storage elements can even withstand temperatures from - 20 to plus 70°C. Even a humidity of 10 to 93 percent does not affect function. Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) is over 50,000 hours, which corresponds to almost six years of continuous operation.

The new KISS 1U Short V3 CFL runs Windows 10 LTSB or Ubuntu Linux and has two USB 2.0 interfaces on the front, four USB 3.0 interfaces on the rear, two Gigabit LAN ports and a DVI-D port. Thanks to RAID support, 3.5-inch SATA removable drives and various expansion slots such as M.2 2280 or a PCIe x16 low profile, the system can be flexibly adapted to customer requirements.

Kontron offers 19-inch-computer chassis developed and manufactured in-house that allow KISS systems to be easily integrated into existing rack environments. This clearly demonstrates an advantage in quality when compared to standard housings from Asia: higher sheet thickness prevents distortion and improves stability. The material used is long-term EMC stable, preserving the guaranteed EMC properties even in high humidity and high temperatures during continuous operation.

The system allows tool-free access for expansions, eliminating the need for time-consuming screwing, making maintenance easier and faster. Customer-specific adaptations such as individual front covers can also be implemented quickly and cost-effectively for small and medium quantities thanks to the modular concept, usually without additional non-recurring engineering costs (NRE).
