Addax-i Fanless Workstation. The ADDAX-i Fanless Workstation is a high-performance fanless computer suitable for harsh environments. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.The Addax-i Fanless Workstation from CCS-Inc. fills a gap in the embedded computer marketplace’s high-end fanless segment. Built on Intel Core i5/i7 technology with up to 8 GB RAM, the Addax-i offers workstation-class performance in a rugged and compact chassis. It is ideal for harsh industrial environments where extreme temperatures, air particulates, and vibration can wreak havoc on standard commercial computers, as well as tight spaces too small for these systems. Fanless computers are frequently specified for their durability and enhanced reliability because they are less susceptible to mechanical failure. Traditionally they are relegated to more basic computing roles because as processing capabilities increase, the heat produced becomes more and more difficult to manage without forced airflow. To address this limitation the high-performance Addax-i was designed with a specialized heat dissipation system. The unit is rated to operate in temperatures ranging from 0 to 55 C.

Numerous product options allow the Addax-i to be optimized for its particular function. The two storage drive bays can be equipped with two hard disk drives for maximum storage, dual solid-state drives in a RAID 0 configuration for maximum speed, or a pair of removable solid-state drives in a mirrored RAID 1 setup for extreme reliability. PCI, PCI-e, and MiniPCI-e expansion slots are also available for various I/O requirements.
