Rack Mount Systems Overview
KISS - multifunctional Kontron Industrial Silent Server
Kontron offers a large array of Intel® based Industrial PC Rack Mount platforms around two core architectures: passive backplane (SBC) and motherboard. The benefits of the passive backplane are its ability to support a greater number and combination of ISA / PCI expansion slots (up to 14) and to offer longer life cycles, which can be greater than 5 years.
Rack Mount Systems Tech Highlights
Your Requirements are Our Challenges. With Kontron Industrial Silent Servers (KISS), Kontron Will Meet Your Demands.
4U Rack Mount SystemsThe KISS system has been designed with flexibility in mind and can accommodate PICMG 1.0, PICMG 1.3, ATX and Dual Xeon/64- bit based motherboards, as well as PCI Express ATX motherboards, all in a case that can be used as a tower, desktop or 19" rack mounted chassis. The main attraction of KISS servers is their extremely low noise level: they are inaudible against normal conversation. KISS IPC servers are therefore ideal for most noise sensitive environments, such as hospital operating theaters and computer server rooms. The performance and configuration of KISS servers are based on Kontron’s extensive range of CPU boards and backplanes, which allows them to be adapted to meet a very wide range of requirements.
Redundant PSUs, RAID Subsystem KISS Stor and Remote Diagnostic Software make each KISS family member a highly reliable and continuous operating industrial Server.
Extra accessories adapt KISS servers to precisely meet your specific requirements:
4U Short Rack Mount SystemsThe Answer for Space Limited Applications
The KISS-Short has been designed with flexibility in mind and can accommodate half size PICMG 1.2 and Flex-ATX motherboards. The main attraction of KISS-Short is its extremely low noise level, which is inaudible against normal conversation. Kontron’s KISS 4U Short offers the same features in drive space, maintainability and functionality as it‘s "Big Brother" KISS server but is only 300 mm deep. If space is an issue, KISS-Short 4U rack mount s the right choice.
2U Short Rack Mount SystemsThe KISS 2U short system has been designed with flexibility in mind and can accomodate FlexATX and MiniITX motherboards, all in a chassis that can be used as a desktop or 19“ rack mounted cabinet. The main attraction of KISS 2U short servers is their extremely low noise level, which is inaudible against normal conversation. KISS IPC servers are thus ideal for most noise – sensitive environments such as hospital operating theaters and computer server rooms. The performance and maximum of configuration of KISS servers are based on Kontron´s extensive range of CPU boards.
2U Rack Mount SystemsVersatile 2U Solution for space limited applications The features of the KISS 2U include an especially low installation height (88.90 mm), extremely quiet (<35 dbA), scalable as desired, RoHs-compliant, long-term available and ruggedized. The Kontron Kiss Server is the ideal Industrial Server solution with redundant AC PSU and integrated hot swappable RAID 1 Subsystem. KISS 2U fea tures PICMG 1.3 and PICMG 1.0 slots boards or Flex ATX motherboards, and is accordingly expandable in an especially flexible fashion, up to Multi-Core and PCI-Express-based systems. In both the Flex ATX and PICMG 1.3 designs, the KISS 2U servers offer high-end performance, currently up to Intel® QUAD Core Q9400 and up to 8 GByte DDR2 memory. The chassis for the KISS 2U rack mountis designed either for the desktop or for installation in a 19“ cabinet.
1U Rack Mount SystemsThe KISS 1U rack mount server provides numerous customer options with an especially low installation height (44.45 mm). It is extremely quiet (< 35dbA), scalable, RoHS compliant, has long term availability all in a ruggedized platform. The KISS 1U server features PICMG 1.3 single board computer support, and due to the flexible design provides Multi Core, and PCI-based as well PCI express based solutions. With PICMG 1.3 designs, the KISS 1U server offers performance currently up to Intel® Quad Core ™ Q9400 and up to 8 GByte DDR2 memory. 2 free fullsize slots, either in PCI or PCI express, options for more drives, and various power supplies enable KISS 1U server for different applications.
1U KVM – Keyboard-Video-MouseKontron’s RMVS and RPD series 1U monitor/keyboard drawers have been meeting the needs of our customers for over five years. During this time, we have noted the additional features that customers have requested and have incorporated them into our revolutionary new KVM 1U series, which offers more valuable features and options than any other comparable models. The KVMs offer three different LCD display sizes up to an unprecedented 19", all with high contrast ratios and wide viewing angles. The monitor flips up and stays put at any angle thanks to its heavy duty torque hinge. Choose from different standard keyboard languages based on your application’s requirements. The KVMs are designed to allow multiple back panel termination options including 8-port KVM which can be cascaded to control up to 512 systems. The unit comes with standard preinstalled ball bearing slide rails making rack installation faster and easier than ever.

Single Fastjet Pilot Flies Multiple Aircraft
During March 2007 a series of QinetiQ research activities culminated with a Royal Air Force (RAF) pilot successfully controlling multiple unmanned aircraft from the cockpit of a Tornado military jet. For this series of flight trials, QinetiQ’s sophisticated control software was hosted on a dedicated Kontron platform comprising a mix of standard, off-the-shelf boards based on 3U CompactPCI® and VME embedded computing form factors as well as Kontron industrial servers.
Agent software from Asentics with multicore industrial servers from Kontron
The new agent-based software architecture from Asentics for industrial image processing on surface inspection applications, such as PCB inspection, takes full advantage of the performance offered by Kontron industrial servers equipped with x86-based multicore processors. At the same time, the highly flexible agent-based software architecture accelerates the application-specific configuration of Asentic’s image processing systems. The combined solution is a successful symbiosis of the latest hardware technology and the related software.
