The M4U20xx and M4U24Axx series of military 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 M4U20A is married to the ATX motherboard, while the larger M4U26 is reserved for EATX use. Both platforms are rugged, military-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.

Each enclosure utilizes a redundant power supply and employs Chassis Plans’ proprietary SysCool® Intelligent Fan Controller. This controller reduces fan noise and dramatically enhances the overall service life of the cooling system.

Custom and Semi-Custom Systems
Selecting a custom or semi-custom system from Chassis Plans is a simple process that allows one of our military grade computers to exactly match your specific requirements. Though the majority of our clients are well served with one of our standard embedded computer systems, there are times when customization is required for those who operate in extreme environments, or have critical mission parameters. Customization is available by selecting upgraded or modified enclosures, processors, motherboards, single boards, drives, video display cards, and power supplies.
