Arista Corporation -- Announces the Product Launch of Two Liquid Cooled Sealed Industrial Computer Systems

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -  Arista Corporation,, leader in the design and development of Industrial Computers, is announcing the product launch of two Liquid Cooled industrial computer products.

In liquid cooling for a computer system, coolant is pumped through a closed loop cooling system and removes heat from heat exchangers that are in thermal contact with a computer's heat producing components.

For the past few years, water cooling has been sparingly integrated for cooling computer components, especially the CPU. Water cooling usually consists of a CPU water block, a water pump and a heat exchanger (usually a radiator with a fan attached). Water cooling typically allows for quieter operation and improved heat handling capabilities for hotter processors.

The product development team at Arista Corporation considered Liquid PC Cooling as a means of running a state-of- the-art CPU in a sealed industrial computer system. Today's high performance or high horsepower CPUs produce plenty of heat and under normal circumstances, work well with an adequate heat exchanger or CPU cooler and the required case ventilation. In an industrial sealed system however, thermal issues abound.

Arista's development team designed two sealed Liquid Cooled industrial systems to cover the implementation or mounting needs of most industrial applications where there is high dust or paper particulate in the air. Two of the industries these systems are designed for are Textile manufacturing and Packaging. In these environments particles accumulate on fans and will cause clogging in a very short period of time leading to fan failure and overheating, resulting in overall system failure.

The RS-4607AT-Q351 is a 4U rack mount chassis and the BoxPC-480Q is a system that can be wall or table top mounted. Both systems share similar specifications: Intel Core 2 Duo / Core 2 Quad processor, Up to 4 GB DDR2-667 memory, Up to 2x 2.5" SATA HDD, 2x Gigabit Ethernet, Liquid Cooling design and Windows XP Pro. The RS-4607AT-Q351 offers 5x PCI, one PCIe x16, one PCIe x1 expansion slots and 6x USB 2.0. The BoxPC-480Q offers 4 PCI Expansion slots and 4x USB 2.0. The operating temperature range for these systems is 0°~ 50°C (32°~122°F)

A non Liquid Cooled series will also be available for these two systems in a sealed fanless version that will utilize the cooler running Intel core 2 duo mobile CPU.

Contact Arista Corporation for additional information on the RS-4607AT-Q351 and the BoxPC-480Q sealed Liquid Cooled industrial computer systems and talk to us about your particular air-born particle application.

"With the launch of these new systems we are ushering in a new and exciting method of cooling industrial computer systems without ventilation, which is one of the challenges in our field given the nature of the environments our systems are expected to perform in," states John DelSignore, Sales / Marketing contact, Arista Corporation. "These sealed Liquid Cooled systems will allow our manufacturing clients to run high performance process computers in their high dust or high air-born particle environment," added DelSignore.
