The Ultima 4U is a premium, semi-customisable chassis for applications requiring a superior industrial platform.

The Ultima 4U rack mount computer is a stainless steel industrial chassis offering PICMG 1.3 single board computer configurations. Our passive backplane architecture supports a longer product life, easier upgrades, extended operating temperatures and the ability to support a greater number and combination of PCI /PCI express expansion slots (up to 14 in a 4U rack mount computer system) .

The lockable front panel is equipped with up to three 5.25 externally accessible drive bays and one floppy with hot swap caddy options. A further two 3.5 inch drive bays are internally situated. Two USB 2.0 ports and the Power/Reset button are also located here for security with easy access. The 4U rack mount computer system status LEDs are fully visible through the panel. The system interior features card support guides and clamps, shock mounted drive bay cages. The plug-in fan option and top cover facilitate unit configuration, installation and maintenance. The unit also supports CPU diagnostics, which monitor internal temperatures and voltage rails – this can be further enhanced by the addition of a system watchdog card.

Designed and manufactured in the UK – the 4U rack mount computer chassis can be adapted to accommodate specific customer requirements. Ultima can be specified for enhanced system redundancy, extended operating temperatures, intensive processing and industry specific regulations. Whether you work in an industrial control, aerospace, communications or transportation environment, Blue Chip Technology has over 20 years experience in designing and manufacturing custom system and board solutions across these sectors.
