The application-ready Kontron rugged RAID Data Server OBSERVO is specially designed for surveillance data recording in harsh environments which require integrated mass storage and data integrity. The server is based on 3U CompactPCI technology and can be configured to meet the application needs for video, radar or sonar data recording in markets such as transportation, military, government and industrial automation.
It supports up to eight SATA-II hard disks or solid state drives, and features high availability and high shock and vibration resistance to fulfil the requirements of mobile and naval-based surveillance applications.
Several different performance options are available, such as Ethernet switch integration, extended duty (24/7) drives and a range of communication options. If required, conformal coating can also be included to protect the system against humidity and dust, which is especially relevant for EN50155 compliancy and deployment in railway applications such as railway platform edge observation or video recording in local trains to prevent vandalism.
An extended temperature range of -40°C to +80ºC helps deliver trouble-free 24/7 operation under extreme environmental conditions, for example in borderland surveillance applications. The rugged CompactPCI design with the high-performance backplane eliminates the need for internal cabling.
Also, the hot swappable hard disk and SSD carriers minimize system maintenance in all application areas resulting in extremely high availability and a lower total cost of ownership.
