Prevent Battery Drainage with Vehicle Power Auto-Sense

A low-power solution that can operate on an external 12VDC power source or car battery, the 9lb RES Edge features vehicle power auto-sense and surge protection technology that prevents battery drainage and assures safety. Once a connected vehicle is turned off, the server automatically disengages and shuts down to save resources and prevent overheating. 

Enhanced for Extreme Environments

To ensure uptime and availability in any environment, the RES Edge incorporates innovative mechanical and design features to withstand 30Gs of shock, continuous vibration, dust, sand and temperature extremes. It accelerates performance in extended 0°C to +65°C temperature environments and is certified to multiple military (MIL-STD) environmental specifications. For enclosed platforms with extremely limited airflow, lower power and fanless configuration options are available.

Customizable to any Application

Equipped with dual PCIe expansion slots, the RES Edge maximizes scalability to support unique application workloads. Hardware and firmware management extends system longevity by ensuring delivery of the same server configuration over multiple years. Additional features, testing and certifications are available upon customer request. 

Application Highlight:

A Policeman’s Best Friend

No, not a dog. A server. Deployed in police cars across Japan, our 9lb mobile server assists in surveillance activities. The platform records, processes and stores data from vehicle cameras, giving police an efficient and cost effective way to collect vital evidence right in the vehicle at the scene of a crime. Criminals can run, but they can’t hide.
