The HQ-Box embedded server

Heptagon Systems “HQ-Box” is a series of rugged fanless servers stored within its state of the art compact Box-PC enclosure.
Designed with flexibility and customization in mind, the H-Box offers 6 initial configurations to accommodate for a variety of use-cases. Additional custom configurations can easily be added with a short turn-around time.
Based on the intel® Xeon® D-1500 SOC, 4-16 core processor, 128GB DDR4-ECC memory and integrated dual 10Gb Ethernet, the H-Box creates a whole new performance level for embedded computing.

Equipped with 1..3 PCIe 3.0 full-height slots, the H-Box can hold a variety of add-on cards. These cards can draw up to 70W of power, enabling configurations no other Box-PC has ever achieved.

The HQ-Box’s versatility as an all-in-one compact computer/server, makes it the ideal solution for applications of Communication, Edge/Fog server, Storage server and Industrial control.
