Industry standard mobile 2.5" SATA hard drive slides directly into Stealth's LPC-395F PC without having to open the chassis.
Stealth.com Inc. has released a rugged, small footprint, fanless computer with integrated removable storage. Stealth's LPC-395F fanless mini PC includes front loaded removable media slots for both hard drive and compact flash (CF) media. An industry standard mobile 2.5" SATA hard drive slides directly into the machine without having to open the chassis. The system also supports a front loaded CF memory card for easy system updates and file deployment.
Appropriate applications include digital signs, mobile/field deployment, process and discrete control, automation, human-machine-interface, data acquisition, shop floor and machine control.
The unit includes Intel's energy efficient ATOM N270 processor technology. The light-weight metal chassis measures only 6.54 in (W) x 6.18 in (D) x 1.89 in (H). I/O connectivity is built in: Dual Gigabit LAN, 4-USB 2.0, 2-Serial RS232, 1-DVI, audio ports with optional Wi-Fi 802.11g. It supports up to 2GB in memory and has a removable hard drive with up to 500GB of storage space for archived data.
For applications that require extra high shock, vibration and wide temperature ranges an optional SSD (Solid State Hard Drive) is available. The PC can also operate from 12-19VDC making it an ideal choice for field and mobile applications.
Systems are compatible with Microsoft Win7/Vista/XP, Linux, etc. and can be custom configured.
Ed Boutilier, President & CEO of Stealth.com states; "Stealth's removable storage feature presents a new level of security, maintenance and data protection in a small form factor PC. There is no longer any need to spend lengthy time to open a chassis to change/ remove the hard drive. Our removable storage feature allows the user to secure or replace critical data in a matter of seconds."

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
