Expanding Dragon
Powerful 1U platform with 2 PCI plus PMC expansion

Expanding Dragon Introduction

The innovative ITOX Expanding Dragon 1U rackmount sserver meets industrial computer requirements for processing power, multiple expansion slots, storage, advanced cooling and low cost. ITOX offers the Expanding Dragon as a barebones platform (case, power supply and motherboard) or a full system (including CPU, memory, hard drive and operating system). both quality-built designs support high density, industry-standard rackmount applications.

Expanding Dragon Features

  • Rugged all-steel chassis

    The quality-built steel case is industry-standard 1.75" high, 19" wide, and only 15.75" (400mm) deep.
    Rack slide rails are included. An optional slide rail extender kit enables two Expanding Dragon 1U servers to fit in a single 1U space.

  • Revision-control motherboard

    The high performance IF15 motherboard is powered by the Intel 815E chipset and supports front side bus speeds to 133MHz and RAM memory to 512MB. This high-feature motherboard includes two Intel 10/100 Ethernet controllers, built in Intel video and two PCI slots. One version of the IF15 motherboard includes a PMC (PCI mezzanine card) expansion slot. The other version includes compact flash capability and a parallel port. Both motherboards are revision controlled and offer a long life cycle.

  • Intel processor support

    The IF15 Socket 370 design supports Intel Celeron processors and Intel Pentium III processors.

  • Advanced system cooling.

    A 75mm blower delivers a powerful, 13.1 CFM air-flow to the motherboard, CPU and storage areas and permits operation at 45 degrees Celsius ambient.

  • Two air-cooled PCI expansion slots.

    The two full-length PCI card slots include 2 hold-down bbars and a protective frame. Three 40mm/6.8 CFM fans provide dedicated air-flow and cooling to the PCI bays. An addition hold-down bar is provided for H-100 connectors in the PMC model.

  • Watchdog timer

    The IF15's configurable watchdog timer resets the system and restarts software in case noise spikes or other events cause runaway sotware to hang the system. This is a valuable tool which maintains control when continuing and dependable operation is critical.
