Extended Temperature Option

Reference Description
XTEST-2 extended temperature test -40° C up to +75° C

For deployment in harsh environments, the PIP10 can be ordered in an extended temperature version. Every system needs to pass various tests in a environmental chamber to prove that it will perform flawless over the temperature range indicated.
Please note: In order to get a system that will operate under these conditions, all additional selected components like hard disks or extension cards have to be specified or tested for conformity to the extended temperature range.
