Rugged Class Data Processing Engines to Digitize the Oil and Gas Industry

Congatec introduced a new rugged class of embedded edge server technologies designed for the digitization of the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry. Both sectors are characterized by distributed assets and infrastructures in harsh environments and therefore require ultra-robust embedded platforms for the digital transformation challenge that offers a huge potential for cost savings.

In order to meet the requirements of the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry, the new embedded edge computing platforms are designed for extended temperature ranges, with optional conformal coating to protect against the effects of salt water or condensation caused by large temperature fluctuations. In addition, they offer comprehensive server class RAS (reliability, availability, serviceability) features that enable OEMs to reliably manage thousands of devices remotely. As multicore designs with currently up to 6 cores and a particularly low 25W TDP, they are suitable for completely fanless and therefore maintenance-free 24/7 operation in hermetically sealed housings with the highest IP protection classes.

The computers are based on the higher performance COM Express computer-on-module standard Type 6 or Type 7.
