Schneider Electric has expanded its IP and NEMA rated EcoStruxure Micro Data Center R-Series for rugged indoor environments. The new micro data centers offer a fast and simple way to deploy and manage edge computing infrastructure in challenging indoor spaces for industrial use. The new R-Series reinforces the advantage of the existing infrastructure of micro data centers.
It is now available in the US
The new R-Series can be managed remotely and had been equipped with security features that allow it to go in unsecured locations. Also, it protects against dust, moisture and temperature changes. The six new models are available in 16U, 24U, and 42U sizes starting in December in the United States and Canada. They will be available in Europe early next year.
Jean-Baptiste Plagne, Vice President Offer Management, Rack & Edge Systems, Energy Management, Schneider Electric, said,
“Advanced automation technologies come with significant cost-saving, safety, and productivity benefits, but to reap the benefits, IT must be located closer to the end point — in spaces that weren’t built with IT in mind. To ensure the reliability of IT networks on the factory floor, we are introducing the new IP and NEMA rated R-Series EcoStruxure Micro Data Center. These microdata centers provide a solution that’s simple-to-deploy and simple-to-manage for IT and industrial channels and for end-users like manufacturers and distributors.”
