  • Rear Module

The award-winning OG-PC-x86-A Integral Frame-Installed PC for openGear® Frames is a compact PC which is installed directly in the frame in the form of an openGear-style card with a double-width rear I/O module. The OG-PC-x86-A gets its power from the frame midplane with no external patches or sources. The full-featured PC is the perfect solution for a headless computer where rack space is limited — the OG-PC-x86-A frees-up the installation from wasting space on a separate 1RU server (especially useful for flypack setups). Using the
OG-PC-x86-A, special applications of your choice can be conveniently collocated directly in the frame.

The OG-PC-x86-A installs just like other openGear® device. The OG-PC-x86-A is equipped with a rear panel that provides dual GigE, USB 2.0 and 3.0, HDMI, serial, as well as a DisplayPort.
