Vibration Test Equipment Instrument Grade Chassis

Customer Case

The customer is in the business of building Vibration Test equipment for semiconductor, automotive and aerospace industries.

Their product is currently housed in Industrial Grade PCs which they integrate themselves. They currently purchase the chassis from an off-shore company.

Their major problem is product differentiation: their product looks like "just another PC" and, therefore, cannot command a better price point. They also presently have to ship a separate monitor, as one is not integrated in the chassis.

They want to upgrade the chassis to one of better quality, with a more reliable power supply and a more rugged design. They also want an integrated color monitor to further integrate their product.

Finally, they want a chassis which does not look like a PC.

GaGe Case Solution

The ideal solution for this customer is the GaGePC 580 Instrument Grade PC.

GaGePC 580 provides front access to all instrument connectors and, therefore, does not look like an ordinary PC.

GaGePC 580 features a very high-reliability, high-capacity power supply which can output 350 Watts, with a Mean Time Between Failure of better than 120,000 hours. This is very important for instrument systems, as the system power supply forms the backbone of the system.

The GaGePC 580 provides the horsepower needed for the sophisticated signal processing needs of Vibration Testing.

With an integrated SVGA color monitor, the GaGePC 580 answers the need for a highly integrated solution for this customer's requirements.

Finally, the multi-layer backplane in the GaGePC 580 is designed to provide reliable, low-noise transmission of PCI bus signals. This further improves the reliability of the GaGePC 580.
