10/5/2004 - Kontron, a market leader in embedded computer technology, announced the introduction of the MiniMorph 19, an industrial-grade, 1U rack chassis designed to accommodate a wide range of small form-factor embedded computing solutions. Unlike conventional 1U server racks designed for use in controlled environments and with larger PICMG 1.x slot CPUs, the MiniMorph 19 is just 12 inches deep and is ideal for industrial applications where space limitations, low power consumption, and environmental extremes are common issues. Utilizing a changeable base plate and rear panel, the MiniMorph 19 chassis can be configured to use various combinations of embedded boards (3.5", 5.25", EPIC and ETX) and different I/O form factors (PCI, PC/104 and JFLEX).
The MiniMorph 19 chassis features a 180W, auto-ranging power supply with 1U integrated power supply fan, two internal 2.5 inch drive bays, positive pressure cooling using a 24 CFM DC filtered blower, four front access I/O panels and a variety of rear panel configurations for board-mounted SBC connectors, PCI slot and I/O panels.
According to Stephen Newbegin, Embedded Systems Product Manager for Kontron, "The MiniMorph 19 is an outgrowth of Kontronís extensive experience in both embedded computing and industrial rack systems."
Price: $375.00 (Qty 1, US pricing)
