Mil-spec computers have been developed to be used in very challenging rugged environments. These industrial embedded PCs consist of carefully selected internal and external ultra-rugged components. The Mil-Spec hardware has therefore been extensively tested to meet the CE, MIL-STD810, MIL-STD704F and MIL-STD 1275D standards. Mil-Spec PCs are sometimes also referred to as Rugged COTS (Custom Off The Shelf) and are specially developed to be exposed to debris, extreme temperatures, shocks & vibrations and in most cases to moisture. Such rugged COTS are deployed at remote rugged locations, where one depends on consistent operation and minimal downtime. For example, offshore rigs, oil and gas pipeline monitoring facilities, heavy construction equipment and space integrators all use Mil-Spec computers to monitor and control critical equipment.
Our rugged Mil-spec computers have been field tested and developed for reliable performance in very extreme environments. All of our heavy duty industrial PCs are designed to meet the Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) requirements and are ideal for long term deployment. Whether you need a military-grade server or a standalone rugged PC, all of our industrial embedded systems use high-quality military-grade MTBF components and are long-lasting. The systems are available as a standard COTS solution or as a 100% custom configuration to meet your stringent application requirements. Each system can be equipped with a high-quality MIL IP-67 housing to ensure optimal robustness for marine, air and ground applications
Experts in Heavy Duty systems
In addition to robust enclosures, we also offer a range of development platforms for the latest embedded technologies. Arcobel's standard and application-specific heavy duty systems offer the best thermal performance in their class and meet the strictest design requirements. Our extensive expertise in embedded products and services includes: enclosures, backplanes, power supplies and subrack accessories for VPX (VITA 46), OpenVPX (VITA 65), VPX-REDI (VITA 48), VXS (VITA 41), VME64x , VMEbus, CompactPCI (cPCI), PICMG and hybrid architectures.
Always a pre-qualified Mil-COTS system
All our Mil-spec computers are designed and built in close collaboration with a select number of industry leading manufacturers, such as our partners Abaco, MPL and Zmicro. This results in a pre-integrated and pre-qualified industrial embedded system, suitable for easy deployment, minimizing costs, risks and lead time. Over the years, we have been able to deliver high complexity systems on a project basis, ranging from fully integrated system enclosures to multi-rack systems. Our systems are qualified on defense platforms, including sea (ships, submarines), air (fixed and rotating wing), UAVs, on the ground (mobile, stationary).
From lab unit to deployable Mil-COTS solution
As a system integrator of industrial embedded systems, Arcobel supplies a wide range of solutions for industrial and heavy commercial applications. By using lab / demonstration units for software development, we can develop a deployable Mil-COTS solution in a short period of time. This allows our Engineers to significantly reduce the development and time to market of test units in the field.
