Animal-friendly: Zoo Basel and the WINDBOX III Advanced

The Zoo Basel, also known as “Zolli”, is with its establishment in July 1874 not only the oldest in Switzerland but has approximately 600 different animal species and with about 6,500 animals (data from 2015) the largest zoological animal population in Switzerland.


Such a unique zoo like the one in Basel is anything but boring.
This goes not only for the millions of visitors. Covering an area of almost 16 football fields there is a lot to do for the employees and volunteers of the Zolli. Day and night. From documentation work to organizational matters to animal care. That especially the latter is very important in the zoological garden goes without saying. Twenty-four hours a day the guards read every wish in the animal’s eyes in order to ensure that they are not missing anything.
Therefore the staff is supported, among others, by security cameras which allow the guards to keep an eye on the animals around the clock.
In order to control the cameras there are used particularly robust industrial PCs. These PCs are able to stay cool even in the tropical climates of the enclosures.


Therefore the spo-book WINDBOX III Advanced is the perfect solution.
The Mini-PC does not only provide enough security but also comes for use as a time acquisition unit as well as for everyday office purposes. Due to the robust metal housing and the passively cooled construction, the system feels fit as a fiddle even in the slightly warmer and partly damp enclosures of the Zolli. An i5 processor with Broadwell core and up to 2.7 GHz, a RAM capacity of up to 16 gigabytes and a wide range of interfaces make the spo-book WINDBOX III Advanced flexibly usable.


The cooperation with the Zoo Basel is a very unique experience for spo-comm and for the WINDBOX III Advanced as well. Because who else has the opportunity to see an elephant enclosure from the inside?
