Apollo Computer Inc’s Series 3500 workstation – launched in July last year – is now available in a ruggedised version, the rack mounted DN3540. It has been designed for use on the factory floor, to withstand temperature changes, electromagnetic interference and voltage surges. It is encased in a shock-proof shell, has a derated power supply to cope with high operating temperatures, and filters and high capacity fans to reduce the effects of particles and provide constant airflow for cooling. A keyboard cover has been added to resist the penetration of dirt (and spilt coffee!), and there is a lock to cut off power to the keyboard, allowing the monitor to display information while preventing access to the system. Apollo says the new version of the workstation can withstand temperatures from 5`C to 50`C, and humidity between 20% and 80%. It offers the same performance and configuration possibilities as the standard 3500 – but only colour versions – priced at UKP10,000, compared with UKP8,300 for the standard 3500 edition. Other Apollo machines are likely to be given the same treatment in future.
