GRIP Epsilon SAVP
Model V4/GRIP/229/100

The GRIP Epsilon is a true commercial off the shelf (COTS) high performance rugged computer system which is targeted at applications that require high-end real-time processing in harsh environments within an extended operating temperature range.

The GRIP Epsilon combines the latest 4thd generation Intel Core i7 Mobile Processors with high performance Intel HD Graphics.

The GRIP chassis provides an IP67 sealed enclosure for the internal COTS hardware technology. Within the chassis a combination of convection and conduction cooling ensures minimal heat stress of the components.

Application areas of this technology include security, automotive, transportation, oil and gas, nuclear, military and aerospace sectors.

The GRIP architecture integrates the four key elements of embedded design:

  • Rugged Chassis
  • Sealed Conduction Cooled
  • Gripworkx™ Application Software
  • High-Spec Components

Discription

Rugged PC

GRIP PCs are rugged high performance computer platforms for image and video processing based on industrial PC hardware which is packaged in rugged, sealed enclosures for use in harsh environment applications. GRIPS provide almost full MILSPEC performance at a fraction of the cost of fully compliant rugged processors. GRIP rugged PCs use high performance Intel Core i7 CPUs and can also include the latest NVIDIA GPUs to support complex graphics requirements or high performance computing applications. Our rugged PCs have been installed in air, maritime, land and vehicle platforms, both manned and unmanned.
