The new slimline Kontron KISS-1U is one of the most compact, quietest and fastest high-availability servers for long-lifecycle applications under harsh conditions.

The new slimline Kontron KISS-1U is one of the most compact, quietest and fastest high-availability servers for long-lifecycle applications under harsh conditions.

At the SPS/IPC/Drives in Nuremberg (November 27 – 29), Germany, Kontron (hall 7, booth 306) will unveil the new Kontron Industrial Silent Server 19-inch / 1U server family - KISS-1U. The new slimline Kontron KISS-1U is one of the most compact, quietest and fastest high-availability servers for long-lifecycle applications under harsh conditions.

With its extremely low installation height of 44 mm, the Kontron KISS-1U server is particularly attractive for densely packed, rugged server applications that require long-term availability. Flexibility in choice of processors, drives and expansions enables customization for applications in industrial automation, process control, high-speed image processing, medical technology, defense engineering, transportation and building control technology.

The quiet ( less than 35 dBA) Kontron KISS-1U server combines multi-core performance with low power and high availability. It is equipped with a PICMG 1.3 SHB slot and can accommodate up to two client specific PCI extension cards. Future extension options include support for PEG/x16 and PCIe x4. Other PIGMG 1.x variants are available upon request. This flexiblity in a most compact server design makes the KISS-1U a perfect fit for customized industrial server solutions.

Performance for the first available Kontron KISS-U1 is supplied by the mobile Intel® Core™ Duo and Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processors up to the T7400 processor (2 x 2.16 GHz) and a Thermal Design Power of only 31 Watts. The Intel® 945GM chipset, up to 4 Gbytes of DDR2-SDRAM, and a 800MHz FSB add to the performance. Whilst shock and vibration protection for the internal 3.5” HDD and the flexibility of 2 full size 32 bit PCI slots make the low-maintenance KISS-1U server ideal for robust applications.

In addition to its internal 3.5” HDD, the Kontron KISS-1U server has enough space to accommodate another 3.5“ HDD or 2 x 2.5“ HDDs, also shock and vibration protected. The optional KISS Stor Slim RAID 1 sub-system provides enhanced data safety via 2 x 2.5” HDDs in a single, hot swappable carrier. Connection is via a single SATA cable and one power cable for minimum hassle and easy maintenance. The first standard configuration of the Kontron KISS-1U server also comes with a slim DVD drive option as well as 3 x Gbit Ethernet, 6 x USB 2.0 interfaces and 1 x VGA interface. The PSU with controlled fan has optional 24 V DC and 48 V DC for direct connection to industrial power grids.

The server’s two temperature-controlled, extremely quiet fans are hot-swappable for reduced down-time and higher availability. Together with the shock and vibration protection for the server’s HDDs and PCI slots, they contribute to the KISS-1U server’s impressive MTBF which is specified as 50,000 hours (~ 5.7 years continuous operation). System reliability is enhanced while availability is increased with the optional Kontron PC Condition Monitoring solution (PCCM) that remotely and continuously monitors the status of the Kontron KISS-1U server. Critical system conditions such as the fan speed, HDD parameters and system voltages are monitored. Any potential problems are then reported via SMS, e-mail or Internet to the system administrator before the failure of individual components, guaranteeing the highest availability and the lowest maintenance costs.

At 18” deep, the Kontron KISS-1U server is shallow enough to provide additional space for cable installations inside racks. The closable front cover also offers IP20 protection. The Kontron KISS-1U systems are designed for continuous operation, they are CE-certified and are also designed to meet UL.

The high-availability Kontron KISS-1U servers support Windows XP/Vista and are available direct from the warehouse as standard systems November 2007. Kontron KISS-1U servers can also be customized as needed to be delivered as tested and independently certified solutions. As usual with Kontron products, the KISS-1U servers come with 5 years minimum availability. For more information, please visit:
