The Ultima is a premium, semi-customisable chassis for applications requiring a superior industrial platform. The stainless steel chassis is as durable as it is attractive; its polished lines reflect Blue Chip Technology’s reputation for outstanding quality and design. Available in 4U and 2U rack mount computer builds, Ultima has a range of expansion options.
The Ultima 19? 2U rack mount computer is a stainless steel industrial computer chassis accommodating PICMG single board computer configurations. The passive backplane architecture supports a longer product life, easier upgrades, extended operating temperatures and ability to support a greater number and combination of ISA / PCI /PCI express expansion slots (up to 5 in a 2U system) . The lockable front panel sealed to IP54 is equipped with one 5.25inch externally accessible drive bay and one floppy with hot swap caddy options. There are a further two 3.5inch internal drive bays. Two USB 2.0 ports and the Power/Reset button are also located here for security with easy access. The system status LEDs are fully visible through the panel. The system interior features card support guides and clamps, shock mounted drive bay cages. The plug-in fan option and top cover facilitate unit configuration, installation and maintenance. The unit also supports CPU diagnostics, which monitor internal temperatures and voltage rails – this can be further enhanced by the addition of a system watchdog card.
Designed and manufactured in the UK – the 2U rack mount computer chassis can be adapted to accommodate specific customer requirements. Ultima can be specified for enhanced system redundancy, extended operating temperatures, intensive processing and industry specific regulations. Whether you work in an industrial control, aerospace, communications or transportation environment, Blue Chip Technology has over 20 years experience in designing and manufacturing custom system and board solutions across these sectors.
