SEL launches new industrial computer


Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories has launched the newest addition to its compact industrial computer family, the SEL3360E.

SEL says its compact, expandable industrial computer includes 10-year warranty and delivers performance and durability.

The SEL-3360E Compact Industrial Computer is made in the USA, and features the Intel Core i7 processor, a -40° to +60°C operating range, no vents and no moving parts. 

The SEL-3360E and the SEL-3360S are industrial computers designed for extreme environments and small spaces. The SEL-3360 range features powerful processing power provided by Intel Core i7 processors.

To ensure the highest reliability, the company says the SEL-3360 computers support RAID configurations and use single-level cell (SLC) Nand flash memory. Up to 16 GB of error-correcting code (ECC) RAM provides ample memory for demanding applications, says the company, adding that the SEL-3360E incorporates two PCI expansion slots to enable I/O customization.

The SEL-3360E operates reliably in environments ranging from -40° to +60°C (-40° to +140°F) with no fans or forced airflow.

SEL says the machine was built and tested to utility substation standards, adding that SEL-3360 computers withstand up to 15 kV of electrostatic discharge, high electromagnetic interference and shock up to 15 g.

Dave Whitehead, SEL vice president of research and development, says: “We are excited to add the SEL-3360E to the SEL-3360 family of computers, all of which offer a 10-year warranty.

“SEL provides this no-questions-asked warranty to reflect the high level of reliability that we build into all of the products we manufacture.”

SEL says out-of-band remote management features, such as Intel Active Management Technology, reducing the time required to service SEL-3360 Computers. Users can perform diagnostics, install software or operating systems and even reboot remotely via a cryptographically secure interface.

The SEL Backup and Recovery Tool, a unique system monitor and an independent embedded controller (watchdog) help maximize system uptime by alerting users to potential issues and minimizing operational outages when a system failure occurs, says the company.

SEL designs, manufactures, and tests all of its computers at its headquarters in Pullman, Washington. SEL-3360 Computers are cUL-certified, CE-marked and RoHS-compliant.

The SEL-3360E is available now, and more information can be found at the SEL’s website.
