Utility tools: Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (SEL) has announced the SEL-3360S Compact Industrial Computer. Designed for extreme environments and small spaces, the SEL-3360S features powerful Intel Core i7 dual- and quad-core processors. To ensure the highest reliability, SEL’s newest industrial computer supports two solid-state 2.5" SATA drives and RAID configurations and uses single-level cell NAND flash. Up to 16 GB of error-correcting code RAM provides ample memory for demanding applications.

The SEL-3360S operates reliably in environments ranging from ­40° to +75°C (­40° to +167°F) with no fans or forced airflow. Built and tested to utility substation standards, the SEL-3360S will withstand up to 15 kV of electrostatic discharge, high electromagnetic interference and shock up to 15 g.

“We are excited to introduce the SEL-3360S Computer with an industry-leading 10-year warranty,” said Dave Whitehead, SEL vice president of research and development. “SEL provides this no-questions-asked warranty based on the high level of reliability that we build into all of our products we manufacture.”

Out-of-band remote management features, such as Intel Active Management Technology (AMT), provide high serviceability to the SEL-3360S. Users can perform diagnostics, install software or operating systems and even command a reboot remotely via a cryptographically secure interface. SEL’s Backup and Recovery Tool (BaRT), unique system monitor (SysMon) and independent embedded controller (watchdog) maximize system availability by alerting users of potential issues and minimizing operational outages should a system failure occur.

SEL designs, manufactures and tests every computer at its headquarters in Pullman, Washington. SEL backs its products with a 10-year, no-questions-asked, worldwide warranty. The SEL-3360S is cUL certified, has the CE mark (also referred to as the EC mark) and is SEL’s first RoHS-compliant computer product.
