  • The TRC2002 Rugged Military Computer

    The TRC2002 rugged military computer is a CE-compliant system solution ideal for designed-to-meet government and defense applications.  The system’s single board computer and backplane configuration coupled with the rugged computer design enables deployment across a spectrum of applications.  System configuration features a single or dual-processor SBC and backplane.

    The JXT6966 dual-processor SBC feature two, long-life and quad-core Intel® Xeon® processors while the single-processor features a long-life Intel® Core™ 2 quad-core processor.  Both options are designed and manufactured by Trenton Systems to ensure maximum longevity that results in extended 2U rackmount computer system configuration stability.

    Butterfly backplane options provide support for PCIe, PCI-X and PCI plug-in I/O cards.  This 19″ rackmount computer features front access /hot swap storage drives in a shallow depth 18″ enclosure.

    Key features of the TRC2002 rugged military computer include:

    • Rugged, lightweight aluminum chassis
    • Built to order system configuration flexibility
    • Accommodates up to four hot swap, front access 2.5″ HDD/SDD storage drives
    • Efficient chassis cooling for long-term system reliability
    • I/O support for PCI Express and PCI plug-in cards
    • Dual or single-processor SBC options feature the multi-core processors

    Like all of our rugged built-to-order computer systems, the TRC2002 is designed, integrated and supported by Trenton Systems in the United States.  Our exclusive 5-year factory warranty on the single board computer and backplane options manufactured by Trenton come standard with this rugged military computer.

    Single Board Computer


    The TRC2002 is a 2U CE-compliant rackmount computer system with a depth dimension of 18.0″ (45.7cm).  This lightweight aluminum chassis weighs only 23.8 lbs. (10.81 Kg.) and features a 2U butterfly backplane and a choice of PICMG 1.3 system host board / single board computer.

    This rackmount computer supports long-life embedded SHB options such as the Trenton’s JXT6966 or TQ9 system host board.  The JXT6966 option is a dual-processor SHB featuring a variety of Jasper Forest processors including the quad-core Intel® Xeon® EC5549 processors.  The TQ9 is a single processor SHB featuring the Intel® Core™ 2 Q9550 quad-core CPU.  Both SHB options offer long-life embedded components; including processors, to provide a 7+ year product availability timeline.

    Standard 2U PICMG 1.3 butterfly backplane options are used in the TRC2002 to provide support for PCI Express, PCI-X and PCI option cards.  The number and type of I/O option cards slots available are a function of the specific SHB and backplane combination.

    The TRC2002 provides two front access, hot swap 2.5″ HDD drive carriers and a slim-line optical media bay.  The system also features two front panel USB ports and a RS232D port.  Various rear panel I/O ports including Ethernet, additional USB ports, RS-232 serial ports, PS/2 ports and PCIe, PCI-X and PCI option card slots.  The TRC2002 is powered by two, rear-mounted, 2U redundant power supplies.




    Refer to the TRC2002-xx Certificate Of Compliance document under the DOWNLOADS tab for a complete listing of the Council Directive: 2004/108/EC-EMC Directive standards to which Conformity is declared.

    The TRC2002-xx was tested and validated to the following standards:
    IEC61000-6-4:2006 & IEC61000-6-2:2005 including:
    CISPR22:1997 + A1:2000 + A2:2002ClassA, IEC61000-3-2:2005, IEC61000-3-3:2008,
    IEC61000-4-2:2008, IEC61000-4-3:2008 + A1:2010, IEC61000-4-4:2004 + Al:2010,

    Trenton’s FSC1400 simultaneously controls and monitors tach pulses from up to four system fans.  The controller also accepts fan speed commands (including on/off) and provides individual pass/fail fan status via an I2C interface to the computer’s PICMG 1.3 system host board.  Fan speed can also be based on temperature via the provided thermal sensor.

    See the FSC1400 System Fan Speed Controller datasheet for additional details on system fan control operation.
