Kontron’s fanless data concentrator for SCADA and control room systems impresses with its high electromagnetic immunity

by donpedro

Kontron presents the new Kontron Passau II, a fanless, intelligent data concentrator for SCADA and control room systems. The 2U rackmount server, which can be extended on a modular basis, is designed to meet the highest requirements in electromagnetic immunity. It furthermore excels with its scalable number of protected GbE LAN, CAN and galvanically isolated serial interfaces for surge protection. These features enable its deployment in heavy current environments while also allowing for the direct control of devices with live current. The server is also equipped to protect all surrounding IT equipment against potential voltage surges on its test and control interfaces. Typical applications areas are, for example, in substations and SCADA systems in the fields of power generation and distribution as well as in the process industry and in utility management. Further application scenarios are to be found in technical facility management or in passgenger information systems at train stations as well as on trains. With its fanless chassis, the robust and long-term available Kontron Passau II is not only protected against dust and moisture infiltration, it is particulary low on maintenance. By using PCI (short) and PCI104 extension components, it can furthermore be very flexibly configured to meet individual application needs. Kontron’s new fanless intelligent data concentrator Passau II delivers reliable 24/7 performance in a working temperature range of 0 to 50 °C over an operating period of 10 years which deems it particularly suitable for applications with long-term service life.
