Compact and Powerful
As processing performance continues to improve, Crystal Group is dedicated to minimize the SWaP envelope of the RS114PS18. High-end computing performance in a 1U chassis with a depth under 18” (457mm) fits most any rack space. The RS114PS18 continues to provide leading edge performance to the industrial and DoD markets optimizing value for the end users.

Rugged and Dependable
Using our expertise in industrial and DoD electronics development, we have set the industries expectations in rugged computing performance. Designed for and proven in the harshest environments, the RS114PS18 boasts the highest up-time reliability in the industry. Whether mission critical or vital to your business, the RS114PS18 will exceed your expectations.

High Reliability at a Fraction of the Cost
Innovative packaging techniques and our attention to the details makes our product run cooler and operate over wider temperature ranges. We demand un-throttled CPU performance at the temperature extremes unlike many of our competitors. Our design approach limits chassis deflection to extend the solder joint life of our circuit boards.
