Industrial PC

Causes and solutions for common compatibility problems

When assembling complete hardware systems, there are several things to consider, starting with the correct chassis size of 19-inch industrial PCs.
Not only does the correct rack unit (U) need to be measured, but also the depth of the devices in order to fit the respective server rack.
Standard models have a depth of 430 or 482 millimeters as well as 1U, 2U or 4U. If the 19-inch servers are too long, in the worst case they won't fit in the cabinet or the rear cabling will be jammed during installation. Another problem can be caused by the housings of fanless servers. The resulting waste heat can lead to overheating of the devices despite having heat sinks. We therefore recommend installing them in ventilated server racks. The most common compatibility problems with hardware are caused by the model generation of the individual components not matching the version of the chipset or socket.
For example, a ninth-generation Intel® processor won't work on an 8th Gen chipset, and PCIe-based plug-in cards (such as sound cards) are sometimes not recognized by the motherboard.
"Such problems can be fixed with a BIOS update," explains Gabor Paxian, Senior Account Manager for industrial PCs at Bressner Technology, "however, not all hardware manufacturers offer this option, so customers had better make sure their CPU generation matches that of the chipset. The correct version usually derives from the mainboard itself."
