Congatec introduces 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 of up to 20 percent.
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. In addition, they offer comprehensive server class reliability, availability, serviceability features for remote management of thousands of devices. Furthermore they are suitable for completely fanless and therefore maintenance-free 24/7 operation in hermetically sealed housings with the highest IP protection classes, even in 6 core configuration.
