With Innovative technologies for the IoT, Advantech has transformed embedded systems into intelligent systems with smart, secure, energy efficient features, with remote manageability, virtualization services, as well as professional system Configure-To-Order Services (CTOS) and Design-To-Order Devices (DTOS). Advantech SKY series industrial server and storage products include Industrial Server System, GPU Servers, IStorage (Industrial storage), from components to systems, providing flexible assembly and longevity. We cooperate closely with out partners to help provide complete solutions for a wide array of applications across a diverse range of industries, such as equipment building, transportation, surveillance, broadcasting, intelligent video and industrial cloud.

Designed for Industrial Environments

High Temperature Tolerance up to 60°C

The temperature standard of commercial servers is 25~35°C. Advantech's temperature standard of their serverboard with dual CPU is 50°C, and 60°C for a single CPU, while the whole system overall reaches 40°C. For every single degree decrease in air temperature, 6% power can be saved. So customers do not need to worry about system down times caused by overheating in critical environments.

Vibration Test up to 1G

You cannot ignore the impact of vibration while a server is running in a critical industrial environment. When your system suffers lengthy access times or encounters minor problems every now and then, then it's time to check out the anti-vibration capability of your server. Any equipment with moving or robotic parts requires special attention to its anti-vibration capability. So all Advantech industrial servers must pass the 1G vibration specification - the industry leading standard. This ensures reliability and long product life.

Dust Prevention for Industrial Environments

Onsite dust accumulated after long-term use could shorten your system's life or even lead to failure. To cope with this, Advantech industrial servers feature a filter in the front panel that blocks external dust while maintaining air inflow. Easy filter installation and replacement ensures smooth continuous operation through regular maintenance.

Coping with Unstable AC Power Supply

The electrical current industrial environments can drop temporarily as a result of unstable power supply. Therefore, it's important that in-plant applications can tolerate temporary power fluctuations. When power is turned off then on again quickly, the original power may not be released completely which leads to an inconsistent power sequence. This is caused by the way residual power is stored in the circuits. Advantech systems have successfully solved this problem with a special circuit design that takes care of power failure of between 1ns and 10s.
