Anabelle Bits has opened a new manufacturing plant at Botany, NSW. Anabelle Bits managing director, Ken Lowe, says the new plant will "enable us to maximise the Australian content in our products and reduce the time between receipt of order and delivery of product".
Elemer Szorkovszky, AB network products manager, told Australian Reseller News a key feature of the new plant is an Australian-made and designed PC burn-in chamber - the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere - with 25 shelves, each capable of holding as many as six PCs. Once in the unit, the PCs are subjected to temperatures of up to 55 degrees C over a five-hour burn-in period. The higher temperatures increase stress levels on the PCs, highlighting problems that may not be found in less rigid testing, he said.
