Next Generation of a Proven Platform Supports Stable System Operation

FA3100SS model 1000 Front view

Update on Aug,2020

Faster and Better Performance

Equipped with 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7
Processor (2.3 GHz) High-Performance CPU

A 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor 3615QE (2.3 GHz) high-performance CPU is installed to realize high-speed processing.

CPU Performance comparison

Weighted maximum performance (in APP value) Unit: Effective tera

  • * The above is a comparison of the weighted maximum performance (in APP value) released by Intel, and there may be differences from the above depending on your system.

Equipped with High-Speed, High-Performance Memory

The Mobile Intel® HM76 Express chipset and high-speed memory with ECC function (up to 16 GB) provides high-speed data transfer.

USB3.0 Interface Is a Standard Feature

USB performance comparison

Maximum data transfer speed Unit: bps

  • * The above shows maximum data transfer speeds in theoretical value.
    The above performance may not always apply to your actual data transfer speed. USB 3.0 is not supported when Windows® XP or Windows Server® 2008 is installed.

Gigabit (2-channel) Ethernet Interface is a Standard Feature

Gigabit-compatible 2-channel Ethernet interface (with auto negotiation for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000BASE-T) is a standard feature (Compatible with the Wake On LAN function).

Equipped with graphic function with a built-in CPU chipset

Equipped with graphic function with a built-in CPU chipset (compatible with full HD display). This permits multi display*1 features such as expansion desktop function, clone display function, collage display function etc.

  • *1 When using Windows Server® 2012, the system does not support multi display.
    The collage display function is only supported with Windows® 7 or Windows® 8.1

High Quality that Supports Stable Operation

Technology and Quality for Supporting 24-Hour Continuous Operation

High-quality, long-life parts are used, based on assumption of 24-hour continuous operation. The hardware is designed with derating taken into account. Thorough quality control is ensured by testing individual units at the component level, and then conducting, for all shipped products, function testing in the user shipment configuration and temperature tests to determine that product specifications will be fully satisfied (in the temperature range of 5 to 40 °C).

Improved Cooling Performance

There are two intake fans in the front and one exhaust fan in the rear. A CPU cooler fan is not used, and cooling is achieved by directly applying incoming air from the intake fans to the CPU heat sink. Cooling performance is enhanced by separating heat flow for the main parts inside the main unit.

Concept drawing

Uses ECC Memory

The unit is equipped with highly reliable memory with an ECC function for detecting and correcting memory errors.

Good Maintainability and Protection Structure

Easy Maintenance by Front Access

HDDs, SSDs, cooling fans, and battery can be easily replaced from the front of the main unit.

Examples of Replacement


  • *2 The security lock key enables you to prevent illegal access by fixing the drive bay covers with special internal screws and using special parts inside the USB cover.
