System Overview
The new Mitsubishi Electric sub-entry level server combines all the features of a true server in a low cost, high performance mini tower system. The Apricot FT600 has been designed specifically for those businesses that require power, performance, expandability and reliability on a small budget.

The choice of Intel Pentium processor with MMX technology or Pentium II processor is backed up by high performance hard drives and SDRAM support, ensuring that this machine can comfortably cope with today's demanding software applications.


Server Management
This server also benefits from fully implemented server management, ensuring remote monitoring to minimise downtime and total cost of ownership.

Room for Growth
Mitsubishi Electric PC Division understands the needs of our customers by ensuring that all our products are fully upgradable and will last well into the future. The Apricot FT600 is no exception. With 4 internal hard drive bays, two externally accessible 5.25" drive bays for tape drive and CD-ROM support, up to 384MB RAM and an upgradable processor socket, you can be sure that this machine will grow with your business. 

Data Security
Your data is fully protected by a lockable front and side panel, ensuring secure access to the On/Off switch, Floppy Drive, Tape Drive, CD-ROM and hard drives.

Computers for a Connected World
The Apricot FT series is designed for a connected world. Multiple connectivity options ensure that the business advantages of Internet, Intranet and Extranet technologies can be fully exploited, allowing greater productivity and communications regardless of the size of your organisation. With integrated ethernet, high-speed modem and ISDN options all optimised to give simple, but effective connectivity to your local area network, or even further afield to the World Wide Web, the electronic network that spans the globe.

Features & Benefits
Pentium MMX and Pentium II Power
The Apricot FT600 is fitted with either a 200MHz Pentium with MMX technology or 233MHz Pentium II CPU giving superb performance. The integrated 512KB level 2 cache ensures peak performance.

And, as the CPU is installed in an Intel socket, the FT600 allows you to keep your upgrade options open.

UltraDMA/33 interface
Overall system performance is not governed by processor speed alone, especially in a server. With the integrated UltraDMA interface, not only are faster disk transfer speeds achieved, but also CPU usage is dramatically reduced, therefore freeing up the CPU to perform other tasks.
This results in much better system productivity.

Server Management
Additionally, the FT600 benefits from the inclusion of a sophisticated hardware management controller. This monitors the status of system critical items such as temperature, power and hard disk performance; controlling the fan speed to maintain an even system temperature; providing predictive drive failure notification and alerting the system administrator to physical intrusion of the system case. This ensures that the FT600 reliability is maintained at maximum levels, thereby reducing cost of ownership.

Smart-UPS Option
As an option, the APC Smart-UPS can be used to protect your Apricot FT600 from the hazards of fluctuating mains supplies. The Smart-UPS unit protects against temporary brown-outs and keeps your data safe in the event of total power failure.

High Performance Memory
Support for SDRAM ensures the longevity of this product. Utilising the latest technology in memory subsystems means that, as your server grows, there are no system bottlenecks and the machine can continue to perform optimally.

As standard, the FT600 has dual USB ports, allowing up to 127 devices to be attached per port. With USB, there is no more guesswork about which serial or parallel port to use, and devices can be added without requiring knowledge of IRQ settings, DMA channels or I/O addresses.
