CEC (Compact Embedded Computer)

Highly integrated, rugged embedded computers

The CEC is a revolutionary family of low power, small footprint, highly integrated rugged embedded computers with a custom designed aluminum chassis. CEC computers are designed for extended temperature, fanless operations in the most demanding environments. CEC designs integrate normal PC connections in our standard chassis as well as custom versions which with MIL-SERIES 38999 and IP67 connectors. Designed for flexibility, each CEC can easily be mounted on a 35 mm DIN rail or configured with flanged sides for wall/bulkhead mounting.
