The R4U20xx and R4U24Axx series of industrial embedded PC’s are designed to deliver the ultimate in reliability and long-term performance. Sporting revision-controlled long life motherboards, drives, and power supplies, each component has been selected and tested to ensure flawless compatibility and seamless integration.

Two distinct chassis designs are employed – based on the user’s choice of either an ATX motherboard, or larger EATX. The R4U-20A is married to the ATX motherboard, while the larger R4U-26 is reserved for EATX use. Both platforms are rugged, industrial-grade 4U designs. While incredibly durable and robust, using aircraft grade aluminum components, along with a milled aluminum front panel, allows weight to be kept to a minimum.

Each platform features a sealable front panel with air filtration, which helps prevent the entry of dust or other harmful particulates. Two 92mm ultra-reliable cooling fans are installed and controlled by Chassis Plans’ proprietary SysCool® Intelligent Fan Controller. This controller reduces fan noise and dramatically enhances the overall service life of the cooling system.
