Bespoke Rack PCs from Impulse Embedded designed to meet the rigorous demands of industrial environments

Vela – Powered by Advantech

Impulse Embedded’s Senior Production Technician, Andy Shaw, recently built a VELA Rack PC that was designed to meet the rigorous demands of industrial environments.

Impulse Embedded’s workshop team builds such powerful bespoke computers to customer’s exacting specifications to create fully robust computers that can easily integrate into any pre-existing system.

The VELApowered by Advantech, is Impulse’s flagship series for industrial computing. It is built, configured, tested and shipped from their facility in Newcastle-under-Lyme and is available in both rack and tower formats. Because they keep all the component parts in stock, the VELA series can ship anywhere within the UK with a quick turnaround.

In this recent order for an ongoing project with a fixed BOM, Impulse Embedded integrated carefully chosen components to meet the customer’s demands for their application. The rack PC has an Intel Core i5-10500TE 2.3GHz processor, an Intel embedded CPU that guarantees availability for at least seven years from release date, which is vitally important for this customer to save on software redevelopment costs.

The chassis has a sleek, space-saving design with a 19″ 2U rack-mount chassis that houses the ATX motherboard, optimising the use of valuable rack space and one slim optical drive bay, which allows the customer to load application-specific software before deployment into the field, enhancing the efficiency of the device. It also features two 3.5″ hot-swap drive trays, making the drives easy to replace or upgrade without losing valuable productivity time.

Multiple integrated high CFM fans within the chassis further fortify the device’s durability. The fans prevent overheating during extended operating periods and thereby minimise downtime in harsh environments where high temperatures are prevalent.

Impulse Embedded takes pride in delivering custom solutions that empower businesses across the UK to excel. Their collaboration with their valued customers and preferred technology partner, Advantech, enables them to constantly push technological boundaries and supply only the highest-quality devices.
