Kontron Saves Space with JRex-CAGE1 3.5-inch Chassis

9/17/2003 - Kontron, a leading embedded computer technology company, announced the new JRex-CAGE1 3.5-inch chassis -- a truly embedded, boxed solution designed for use with Kontron's JRex line of 3.5-inch Single Board Computers.

An aluminum alloy box with a chromic acid membrane, the JRex-CAGE1 harnesses the performance of any member of the JRex SBC family to create an easy-to-use, instant solution. With dimensions of a mere 178 x 256 x 88mm, the JRex-CAGE1 is an excellent choice for applications in which standard or even shoebox-sized computers require too much space.

The JRex family of full-featured 3.5-inch SBCs includes a vast array of I/O and I/O expansions. The JRex-CAGE1 features a built-in ATX power supply and has reserved mounting space for a 2.5-inch hard drive as well as extra peripherals such as PC/104 and JFLEX expansion modules. Mounting holes for additional COM, USB and LPT ports are included on the rear panel. Additional brackets are available for applications requiring even more peripherals. Optional mounting kits for desktop, 19-inch rack mount or wall mount further enhance the flexibility of the JRex-CAGE1 solution.

Kontron expects the JRex-CAGE1 to be available for purchase at the end of Q3 2003, with production units starting at $179 in small quantities (actual pricing may vary).
