Nor-Tech has developed an extremely quiet engineering workstation for hard core users that require a lot computing cores, but require their systems be deployed near their workspace. Engineers require more and more computing power, which needs more and more cooling. Generating enough cooling can be very noisy in traditional workstations. The quiet engineering dual processor workstations are designed to be deployed within a cubicle office or home office. Having Nor-Tech’s quiet engineering workstation in close proximity to someone’s workspace is no longer a hindrance to performing their job. The less than 51 decibels (dB). generated by the quiet workstation has no harmful impact on the workspace. Engineers are free to push the performance limits of the system without the noise concerns commonly experience with traditional workstations.
Nor-Tech is able to pack the systems with lots of cores using dual processor configurations to meet the demanding computing needs of simulation and modeling workstations. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are two applications that are driving the demand for more powerful engineering workstations. Nor-Tech’s quiet engineering workstation was created with these applications in mind. The intense processing requirements for FEA and CFD applications are forcing engineers on traditional workstations to throttle back their modeling to preserve their work environment. Nor-Tech’s quiet engineering workstation allows engineers to run full throttle.
The less than 51 dB generated by the quiet workstation is just above 30dB to 50dB range commonly denoted for a standard personal computer. 70 dB noise level is considered acceptable for simple or mainly transactional office work. 55 dB noise level is the recommendation for “mainly intellectual work.”
