Shuttle Computer Group, Inc., one of the world’s leading designers of small form computers, announces its EN01 Edge Computer, a miniature-sized intelligent platform designed for data-intensive, extreme environments like those in industry automation, transportation, and communications sectors. Its passive thermal cooling system allows for a high temperature tolerance, operating between -4°F and 140°F (-20°C and 60°C), perfect for automated, 24/7 applications in factory floor operations, irrigation systems, refineries, highways, robotics, and more.
