Fanless Rugged Server Solution MXCS-15xxCA
 in compact aluminum housing with Intel® Xeon™ Processor

The MXCS is a high performance, low power and highly integrated rugged embedded Server, built in a special designed compact aluminum housing to meet the SWaP-C specifications. This allows to operate the MXCS in a moderate or harsh environment without the need of fans or air vents. The design integrates standard connectors for easy connection. Alternative connectors (M12, MIL 389999) or different housings (19" rack, MIL IP67 or Open Frame) are available. Therefore, the MXCS solution can be used for any server application where a compact fanless solution is needed.

Rugged Server with XEON processor


The MXCS housings offer space for up to 2 x 2.5" SSD. With internal expansion over PCI/104-Express and Mini PCIe, various functions can be added. Particular precautions in the design have been taken that the entire system EMC is within the CE and FCC limits and capable to meet the MIL-STD810, 461, 704, 1275, as well as standards like IEC60945 or EN50155.

Key features are:
  • Fanless by design (-20°C to +60°C)
  • Intel Xeon CPU, up to 16 cores
  • Up to 128GB ECC DDR4
  • Two 10Gbit ports
  • mSATA / m.2 Key M ports
  • Long-term availability guarantee

The MXCS rugged Server Family has been designed to withstand harsh environments and extreme temperature conditions. The ruggedized design, combined with the best industrial-grade components, offer high reliability and long-term performance.

The MXCS is available for different industries and is the perfect embedded server solution for industrial environments, railway applications, MIL/COTS applications, or whenever a rugged long-term available computer is needed.
