Advantech Launches Short-Depth 2U Rackmount Industrial Chassis
Taipei, Taiwan, July 29, 2016 – Advantech (2395 TW), a global provider of intelligent systems and platform solutions across multiple vertical markets, announces to launch ACP-2020, a short-depth (398 mm), 2U rackmount industrial chassis designed for factory automation or equipment building applications with space limitations and requiring a redundant power supply and hot-swap drive installation.
Embracing market requirements to have a modularized, intelligent and compact size industrial grade chassis, Advantech ACP-2020 is a chassis product designed to fulfill many market requirements with its 398mm shallow depth yet still with a capability for expansion with dual hot-swappable disk modules and 500W redundant power supply. Moreover, ACP-2020 is equipped with an intelligent system module enabling self-diagnostics and remote monitoring of power, temperature and fan speed status.
ACP-2020 supports ATX/uATX form factor motherboardssuch as Advantech’s AIMB-7/5 seriesand ASMB-7/5 series. ACP-2020 supports two internal 2.5” hard drive spaces, two external 2.5” hard drive spaces, and an optional dual SATA hot-swap module which can be used externally. Power comes from a 350W single power supply or 500W redundantpower supply. For those end users who have severe space limitations in equipment integration and still require systems that can deliver higher levels of computing power, high wattage output and RAID configurations, ACP-2020 is the best chassis product solution of all.
The shallow depth chassis leaves more space internally with careful cable arrangements for better air flow. With a total of four 2.5” disk drive spaces, two of them can be converted into SATA hot-swap devices which provide the system with enough drive storage space for a RAID configuration. The 500W redundant power supply allows usage of high performance CPUs and add-on cards such as graphics or frame grabber cards. An Intelligent embedded system module provides end users with remote monitoring of system health which can reduce the frequency of costly on-site maintenance.
