The latest Sealevel Systems case study delves into “The Top Four Factors Facing Rugged Industrial Computers” and examines the development and manufacturing solutions being used for computers and devices to meet challenges posed by environmental conditions. 

All Sealevel rugged industrial computers and rugged embedded computers are specially designed to operate reliably in harsh environmental conditions. Specifically, they are built to withstand conditions in which standard consumer model PCs would either suffer performance loss or failure.

This involves an extensive process of evaluation, prototyping, and testing each component and the system against potential environmental challenges.

In response to these challenges, Sealevel utilized leading design concepts to produce a custom rugged embedded computer, which evolved into the Relio R1 Industrial Computer standard product.

Sealevel state that the original specifications required the ability to withstand operating temperatures of -40°C to 70°C and to operate under shock and vibration levels that are nearly double those required to meet the MIL-STD-810 specification.

“The Relio R1 was the only unit tested that passed all tests without any failures,” commented a customer of the Relio R1 Industrial Computer. 

Sealevel Systems’ article goes on to explore: 

  • Extreme temperature resistance – both hot and cold
  • Shock and vibration resistance
  • Ingress protection
  • Power tolerance
