Why we built the Dell 1130 1U Server
Code named “Dart Frog”, Dell built a 1U rugged server with a depth of less than 20 inches, optimized for harsh environments and space-constrained locations. The server is available to OEM customers with 4 standard configurations. The Dell 1130 serverwas a customer driven product with several use cases, including deployments in places such as remote data centers, transit case deployments for the Federal space, telecommunications and industrial automation. This is a powerful server in a small footprint that meets the durability, weight, and length requirements of many industry verticals.
Environmental Testing & Certification
It was important in building the Dell 1130 to undergo various temperature, shock, vibration and altitude tests, above and beyond the standard Data Center certifications. Certified by an accredited test facility, the 1130 is MIL-STD-810G shock and vibration tested, MIL-STD-901D shock compliance, and MIL-STD-810G altitude tested. It also has four high-power cooling fans allow for expanded thermal protection, including an 8-hour excursion to 122°F (50°C) and up to two Intel® Xeon® quad-core processors. Important for rugged hardware, we also offer dual hot-plug 470W power supplies as well as redundant cooling fans in the Dell 1130 with optimized power efficiency.
