  • 4U Nano Redundant PSU

    Redundant PSU latest addition to expandable 4U Nano

    Updated 19/09/2018

    We’re pleased to officially reveal that our highly expandable 4U Nano rackmount PC has recently received an exciting upgrade to its design. Following on from the modifications we made to our popular 2U Nano of late, its larger 4U cousin is now also the recipient of a brand-new redundant power supply unit (PSU). The introduction of this optional PSU complements the 4U Nano’s already powerful, high-performing configuration, adding to its existing high output 1500W ATX power supply and augmenting its line-up of impressive features.

    Plenty of power

    Thanks to this new upgrade, the 4U Nano is now more optimised than ever for power and performance. Our first 4U unit, it was built with AV and digital media production in mind, and its clever design only reflects this:

    • 370mm ultra-short-depth chassis
    • Dual Xeon processor options
    • Support for up to 4x dual-width graphics cards
    • High output 1500W ATX PSU
    • 4x 3.5” or 8x 2.5” hot swappable HDD/SSDs

    A PC for professionals

    With dual processor options for Intel’s range-topping Xeon chips and room for multiple dual-width graphics cards, this is a machine that’s primed for performance. Like the 2U Nano, due to its short-depth case and ultra-quiet cooling fans, the 4U Nano is an ideal PC for AV professionals. The addition of a redundant PSU offers added resilience, providing users with reassurance that should their main power supply fail during a show or production, the redundant unit will simply take over as if nothing had happened.

    We’re always making changes to our line-up of Rack and Mini PCs to ensure that we’re providing our customers with innovative, reliable technology that addresses their challenges and lives up to their expectations. We listen to your needs and do whatever we can to create solutions to meet those requirements.

    If you would like to find out more about what a redundant power supply means for the 4U Nano, or else learn about the PC itself and whether it’s right for you, get in touch with one of the team.

  • 2U Nano Redundant PSU

    Our 2U Nano gets a redundant power supply upgrade

    Updated 10/09/2018

    We can think of plenty of reasons why the 2U Nano rackmount PC is consistently one of our most popular products. It’s an exceptionally high-performing PC, with support for Intel’s 8th generation of impressive CPUs; is ultra-quiet, thanks to internal rubber-mounted cooling fans; and boasts an exceedingly compact mounting depth at 370mm, making it ideal for space-sensitive AV installations or transport within a flight case.

    All of these features aside, we always aim to refresh and refine every one of our products as often as we can, ensuring that our customers are getting the most from their investment in our PCs. The 2U Nano is no exception. Already a feature-rich machine, with power supply options that extend up to 650W, we’ve recently decided to also add a redundant power supply unit (PSU) to the 2U Nano’s design. This means that should your PC’s main power supply ever fail during an AV show or digital media production, you get peace of mind from knowing the 2U Nano has a contingency. The 800W redundant PSU will simply take over the workload, and you can continue working without disruption as if nothing has changed.

    The addition of a redundant power supply enhances what is already a long list of exciting capabilities and important functionality offered by the 2U Nano:

    • Up to 650W standard power supply
    • Redundant 800W power supply
    • 2x 3.5” or 4x 2.5” hot swappable HDD/SSD bays
    • Full ATX motherboard support
    • Up to 4x PCIe x16 slots
    • Ultra-low noise, from only 34dBA

    We believe that introducing a redundant PSU to the 2U Nano adds further value to the PC, building important redundancy into a machine that is increasingly being used in critical environments where this peace of mind is vital.  As with the same changes we recently made to our 2U PC, this comes as a response to customer requirements and the demands of real-world application of our technology.
