Panel Mount Fan Free Computer
High reliability Panel Mount computer system for nuclear industry
Developed for the nuclear industry to replace failing CRT monitors, the fan-less 23″ panel mount computer passes earthquake shock and vibration standards. With no rotating media, and no failure-prone fans, the Panel-PC-23 is a high reliability solution for moderate computer workloads. A high reliability Solid State Disk (SSD) provides local boot drive and storage, and a fiber optic network connection provides remote access. The Panel Computer mounts from the front for easy installation. In a nuclear power station, it is not an issue that the computer might easily be dismounted; only authorized personnel have access to the area, so actually having the unit easily replaceable is a positive.
Nuclear Power Plants
According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, there there are 439 nuclear power reactors in operation in 31 countries.
Class V event
ACME government systems tested the unit to a level V event without issues. Please ask if a higher certification level is required as the unit passed Class V without any issues and higher levels of certification are possible.
The Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale
The effect of an earthquake on the Earth’s surface is called the intensity. The intensity scale consists of a series of certain key responses such as people awakening, movement of furniture, damage to chimneys, and finally – total destruction. Although numerous intensity scales have been developed over the last several hundred years to evaluate the effects of earthquakes, the one currently used in the United States is the Modified Mercalli (MM) Intensity Scale. It was developed in 1931 by the American seismologists Harry Wood and Frank Neumann. This scale, composed of 12 increasing levels of intensity that range from imperceptible shaking to catastrophic destruction, is designated by Roman numerals. It does not have a mathematical basis; instead it is an arbitrary ranking based on observed effects. Interestingly it is not directly related to the energy released in the earthquake – rather the damage it causes – see video
That’s a panel mount computer for the nuclear industry.
