The Secret Behind Wide Temperature Technology

Industrial applications are often associated with harsh, demanding environments. Facilities and key computing equipment may be located at remote sites where there is little or no protection from severe weather conditions. Computers that are not designed to tolerate harsh conditions face significant limitations in how they can be used in industrial applications. Typical industrial standards call for an operating temperature range of 0 to 40°C.

Industrial applications are often associated with harsh, demanding environments. Facilities and key computing equipment may be located at remote sites where there is little or no protection from severe weather conditions. Computers that are not designed to tolerate harsh conditions face significant limitations in how they can be used in industrial applications. Typical industrial standards call for an operating temperature range of 0 to 40°C. Although these standards are far more rugged than those for consumer products, industrial computers need higher quality construction to provide protection from the elements for use in harsh environments.
