Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (SEL) announced the SEL-3355, a high-performance, ruggedized, rack-mount computer, which is designed for industrial automation, utility substations, and other harsh environments that require highly reliable and highly available computing.
“SEL is excited to introduce a computer that is designed for mission-critical applications, incorporating industrial grade components, an innovative thermal management system with no moving parts, SEL’s robust design techniques, and a standard ten-year warranty to provide the most reliable industrial computer available” said Ed Schweitzer, SEL President. 
Designed around an Intel® Core™ i7 multicore processor with up to 16 GB of error-correcting code (ECC) RAM memory, the SEL-3355 operates silently without fans or vents in temperatures ranging from –40° to +75°C. Additionally, it reliably operates in the presence of shock and vibration, electromagnetic interference, and electrostatic discharge. The SEL-3355 is SEL’s third-generation industrial PC and builds on a demonstrated reliability that is ten times that of typical industrial computers.
To address cybersecurity concerns, the SEL-3355 is available with tools to allow customers to implement Center for Internet Security (CIS) OS security benchmarks, thereby providing industry-agreed-to settings in the OS to improve the device security posture. In addition, Intel vPro technology includes several security measures designed into the chipset that make it less vulnerable to computer viruses and/or loss of sensitive information.
The SEL-3355 can be configured with dual hot-swappable power supplies, which can be connected to ac or dc power sources; up to four single-level cell (SLC) solid-state drives (SSDs) that can be configured with RAID redundancy to allow for drive replacement without loss of data; and SEL SysMon and Intel vPro™ technology that provide management of security, monitoring, diagnosing, and remote computer repair.
The SEL-3355 is designed, tested, and manufactured in Pullman, Washington, USA. A standard configuration retails for $3,950 and includes a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7 dual-core processor, 4 GB of industrial ECC RAM, a 30 GB SSD, Microsoft® Windows® 7 Ultimate, and a ten-year, no-questions-asked warranty. Optional hardware and software are available to configure the SEL-3355 to meet specific computing needs.
