Available now from Backplane Systems Technology, MPL’s PIP40 Series Extremely Rugged Computer with Intel 9th generation processor is up for the toughest of tasks you can throw at it.

The PIP40 Series is a high performance, low power and highly integrated rugged embedded computer based in the latest Intel technology. Compact aluminium housing encases the PIP40, and includes a DIN-Rail or flange to fit a rugged MIL IP67 enclosure, a 19” rack system, or an open frame solution with a cooling plate.

The unique chassis solutions allow the PIP40 to operate in environments both moderate and harsh. The design integrates standard I/O connectors for easy connection or lockable headers, depending on housing choice or needs.

The PIP40 Series can handle most high quality x86 applications where a complete but still expandable solution is required.

With sufficient space for 2.5” SSD or other expansions like UPS or RAID, the PIP40 Series housing is highly customisable and versatile. It features two mPCIe and three m.2 slots to allow expansion, while the Internal Expansion BUS allows the integration of PCIe/104 or PCIe cards.

The PIP40 Series meets the CE and FCC standards, allowing the EN50155, IEC 60945 or MIL-STD-810 certifications to be met.

Additional features include up to 64GB DDR4 Memory, depending on selected CPU, fanless operation from -40 degrees to 65 degrees C, long term availability, extreme flexibility and AMT/vPro support.
