HPC-7442 and HPC-7242 support versatile EATX and ATX motherboards, with a highly efficient switching power supply and easy-to-maintain cooling fans. They provide at least four SAS/SATA HDD trays, which offer flexible options for data storage. Other data storage choices include one slim-type drive bay for an optical disk drive, and one or two drive bays for internal hard drives. The unique alarm module monitors system status such as power, HDD, temperature, fan, and LAN, to maximize system uptime. Fan speed is controlled according to chassis internal temperature, optimizing system power consumption and minimizing noise. A wide range of standard computing peripherals can be integrated with these chassis to accommodate robust, 24/7 applications in rugged environments.
