Reviews

  1. Giovanny

    Industrial computers can be built to withstand less computer friendly environments, such as high temperature ranges, dirty, dusty and even wet conditions. The last two are defined by the IP (Ingress Protection) rating which defines the size of solid particles excluded and the degree of waterproofing provided. These ratings are defined by the European Committee for Electro Technical Standardization (CENELEC) (NEMA IEC 60529 Degrees of Protection Provided by Enclosures – IP Code). There are a number of clever techniques for dealing with thermal management and ingress protection, depending on the particular requirements.

  2. Amare

    In addition to physical build standards and environmental protection, industrial pcs running dedicated functions can be provided with embedded operating systems with up to 15 years life (unlike commercial operating systems which are replaced every few years), so you don’t have to keep redeveloping your application to run on new operating systems.

  3. Muhammad

    Advantages of a Mini-PC:
    A mini-PC has a number of advantages over a regular desktop PC or notebook or even tablet.
    Size. This is the obvious advantage. Depending on the model, can be as small as a novel or jewellery box, sometimes even smaller. You can tuck the PC away where it is essentially invisible and save a significant amount of space.
    Versatility. A mini-PC can have all the power of a standard desktop PC and you can easily change components like the RAM and hard drive. Hook it up to your screen of choice, whether that is a regular monitor, open frame display, or a TV screen.
    Cost. Mini-PCs are more affordable and very cost effective to operate.
    Energy consumption. These devices use the latest developments in energy saving technology to run on less power and reduce heat.

  4. Memphis

    There is also the option for industrial pcs to be constructed to withstand shock and vibration, as required for installation in vehicles, ships, tanks or aircraft. This requires components, connectors, cables, etc to be installed in a way that prevents them being shaken loose over time, and requires moving parts to be built to a much higher standard. Such as hard disks built to withstand higher levels of shock without failing. These are often referred to as ‘ruggedised’ computers.

  5. Sincere

    Using same CPU, industrial pc price is much higher than normal commercial office pcs, what makes industrial pc different from normal commercial office pc? Both can potentially perform the same functions, probably run the same software, but they are quite different from a hardware perspective.

  6. Ronnie

    Use mini-PCs in training sessions, seminars or boardroom presentations. They are terrific for working online, word processing or preparing presentations. And they have far more processing grunt and capabilities than tablets. Use them in a large office with cubicles to save so much space (mini-PCs are about a tenth the size of regular PCs), make the workplace less cluttered, and hook them all easily into the main network systems.

  7. Leonard

    With a mini-PC that has the right video and audio connections, you can use it as a multimedia server. Make sure to get a model with the graphics card and processor powerful enough to handle full HD video. Add a remote and operate it from your sofa.

  8. Alessandro

    Many mini-PCs have more than enough power to support the display and computing requirements of the gaming industry. And very often have the lifecycle to support gaming machines used in casinos and lottery.

  9. Aydin

    A mini PC just need to hook up for crystal clear video conferences with just a compact unit.

  10. Xzavier

    A mini PC is Cheaper than buying another laptop or desktop PC for the family to use. You just connect a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Easy to connect to internet and intranet alike.

  11. Malakai

    A mini-PC has the horsepower to produce top performance and great visuals. Create, record, edit and play wonderful audio and video content.

  12. Raphael

    Such a small but powerful unit will be amazing for digital advertising displays. Its power can handle the most complex digital animation while being tucked away so easily.

  13. Cannon

    watch for the revolution that has already begun. The mini-PC has so many uses and, for something so small, is making a huge impact.

  14. Francis

    Over the past several years, we’ve seen the rise of the mini-PC, a device with the processing power of a regular PC but far smaller in size.
    Many mini-PCs on the market can fit into the palm of your hand. And recent Quark processors from Intel are as small as an SD card. Remarkable. Revolutionary.

  15. Draven

    One of the biggest differences between an industrial pc and a commercial PC is the components used in their construction; ‘industrial’ grade rather than the (often lower cost) ‘commercial’ grade. These are longer lasting, better quality and built to a higher standard. They have longer supported life spans and aren’t replaced by newer versions as often as commercial components. This provides consistency of supply and long term repeatability so the same model can be available for much longer than the commercial equivalent, typically 5 years or more.

  16. Alvin

    Some of the many uses of a mini pc on the production floor are, for example, real time data collection, supervisors’ working pc’s for production planning or automatic metrics displaying screens. With this type of hardware, companies’ production lines can really have a system they can rely on.

    Contrary to other types of hardware solutions, with a ventilated cabinet and fans to maintain temperature, ventless pc’s offer powerful processing with all the hardware features required on the industrial environment.

  17. Shaun

    With the use of a rugged industrial ventless Mini PC the positive impact on the productivity is evident on the following:

    Since mini-PCs have no moving parts and no access for metal dusts and other objects the repair or replacement downtime is drastically reduced to practically zero.
    All the production downtime due to cleaning of the production floor computers practically disappears since the risk of metal dust damaging desktop pc’s power supply fans or other inner parts.
    Having mini pc’s mounted in way the clears out the employee working space makes everyday production routines faster and creates a cleaner work environment.
    The IT Department staff is more reachable on the office to provide tech support to the end users or work on projects instead of walking around the production lines cleaning existing computers.
    The computers leasing of purchasing cycle can complete fully since no computers will have to be replaced prematurely due to damage, instead in completes the full term.

  18. Salvador

    A more efficient and smarter solution is the use of an Industrial ventless Mini PC in Manufacturing Execution Systems. whose main advantages are that being an industrial rugged solution they’re sealed (without fans or ventilation openings), blocking external objects, allowing them to work smoothly and without interruptions. Another benefit, is the small form factor that makes possible to mount them anywhere on the production line avoiding them to be on the way of employees doing the daily process and also making the replacement easier for the IT crew. At the same time modern mini pcs offer same processing power and connectivity options as a regular desktop pc.

  19. Jaydon

    One regular solution offered by the IT Teams is regular PC maintenance to try to keep the equipment dust free. This positive action has some negative sides, like regular downtime due to maintenance, which can make production stop which represent production metrics being affected, like productivity and utilization.

  20. Tate

    the metal parts cleaning and deburring produces a lot metal dust flying on the air, which is normal part of the process. But the problem is that regular desktop computers that are normally used on the production floor have ventilation that basically because a red warning for the computer due, to all the vent windows on several parts of the PC case. This can damage computers easily and cause an electric problem on the PC power source. Despite the computer can be swapped easily, the replacement cost of several computers can rise drastically if we don’t enough attention.

  21. Justice

    Considering all these factors, companies need to acquire and use a more industrial oriented computers, like Fanless Mini PCs. There are several options available that make possible to collect and process our production data and keep our manufacturing floor computers in good shape.

  22. Mekhi

    Casting, for instance, is an industrial manufacturing process that can be especially challenging for the IT department due to the environment in which it works. Casting exposing networking and computing equipment to very harsh conditions like the vibration of machinery and an environment full of metallic dust. We can picture clearly what dust can do to a commercial grade computer.

  23. Marquis

    Like with any computer or mobile technology, if you are willing to wait more than a month, you will always find a better deal. The question really becomes how long you are willing to wait. If you can wait a month, wait it out. If you need it sooner than that, buy it now and forget about the regret factor.

  24. Brendon

    One of the coolest parts about the mini PC is that its small size makes it perfect to mount behind your monitor or TV, hidden away discreetly. However, online buyer reviews have several people with 20-20 hindsight suggesting that you check the size of the mini PC before you buy it.

  25. Toby

    Mini PCs come in different sizes and the amount of space available between your TV and your wall might not allow for it. Similarly, the mounting plate behind monitors won’t fit every single size. Grab a measuring tape and check before you buy — you don’t want to regret this later.

  26. Kody

    One question everyone has when they are changing their PC: Should I wait, is there something better coming along? Well, when it comes to technology, there is always something better coming along.

  27. Cason

    I feel a special mention needs to be made here that mini PCs support only laptop RAM and not desktop RAM. Laptop RAM is smaller than desktop RAM and typically costs slightly more — the price difference isn’t huge though

  28. Braylen

    Mini PCs typically support one of two sizes for hard drives: M.2 and 2.5-inch. The M.2 is only flash storage, while the 2.5-inch format allows for flexibility between an SSD and traditional HDD. It’s important that you know which one you are buying.

  29. Javion

    Mini PCs use the same processors as laptops. However, since battery life isn’t a concern, low power consumption takes a backseat. And recently, AMD’s Radeon-powered laptop processors have stepped it up in the graphics department, out-performing Intel’s offerings in the same price.

  30. Dominik

    I know that if you want to get the free Windows 10 upgrade on your new mini PC and it doesn’t come pre-installed, it’s not as simple as installing Windows 10 directly. You will first need to install Windows 7/8/8.1, depending on which one you have with the original key, and then upgrade to Windows 10.

  31. Allan

    By identifying employees, VIP guests, and unknown individuals, facial recognition systems can alert staff about the arrival of important clients, restricted areas can be intelligently monitored, management can be told if employees are away from their workstations for long periods of time, and security officers can receive notifications about the presence of unauthorized people. MINI computer needs a very long life and stability to work in this kind of place

  32. Terrell

    Intelligent Safety and Security systems on Mini computer play an important role in keeping people safe; whether it’s at the factory, the train station, a crowded park or even the beach. AAEON offers a wide range of products capable of providing Smart Security Systems utilizing tools such as facial recognition and virtual fences.

  33. Matteo

    Intelligent Safety and Security applications are powered through a combination of AI Edge Computing and AIoT devices. These systems are often deployed not just as static cameras, but autonomous security robots, drones, or even deployable remote cameras and monitoring devices. The combination of AIoT networks and Edge Computing platforms enables real-time analysis, alerting personnel immediately when an issue is detected. With applications like Behavior Pattern Analysis, AI systems can identify potential threats, or avoid false alarms, such as in virtual fence systems. So the MINI computer must be powerful

  34. Tristin

    These systems can provide workplaces with an extra layer of safety, by ensuring workers are wearing appropriate safety gear or monitoring fatigue. They use facial recognition to provide intelligent access control for restricted areas. Virtual fences can monitor go/no go areas and alert staff of intrusions. Combining the systems together, Intelligent Safety and Security systems can even alert staff if a person is missing from where they should be. So our requirements for MINI computers are very high

  35. Jairo

    More and more retailers are looking to bring AI powered Industry 4.0 solutions into their businesses. Smart Retail is more than just a buzzword, it’s integrating IoT and edge computing to provide enhanced customer experience, up to date inventory management, and improved loss prevention. Smart Retail helps give traditional retailers a leg up in an age of increased online shopping, as well as power new and innovative solutions like unmanned stores. So MINI computers are very useful

  36. Reginald

    By utilizing technologies like facial recognition, product tracking, and purchase analysis, retailers can custom tailor the shopping experience to each individual shopper through actions like product suggestions and offers based on shopping history, suggesting related items based on what the customer has picked up, or automatically tracking VIP rewards and benefits. These technologies can also help with the backend of the store, with live tracking of inventory to facilitate just-in-time stocking and ordering. The safety of customers, employees and the store can be enhanced by using behavioral analysis and virtual fence technologies. Smart security systems can alert staff of potential shoplifters or when a customer enters a restricted area. so I am optimistic about the future of MINI computers

  37. Ulises

    You can’t use an old keyboard or mouse with a PS/2 port. Mini PCs only support USB-based or Bluetooth-based keyboards and mice. If you are buying new, I would suggest buying a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse since that frees up a USB port on your unit. For recommendations, check out some of the best wireless keyboards.

  38. Brent

    The best mini PCs put desktop power in your pocket. New technology packs a lot of power into a compact size, using laptop parts to offer big capability into a size that barely resembles the big, boxy desktops of the past. From web browsing, media streaming, to gaming and VR, mini PCs can handle it all, often with a design that can be tucked into a coat pocket or hidden behind a monitor.

  39. Ahmad

    I have tested and reviewed several, and found the best mini PCs for everything from home entertainment to gaming and professional workstations. From extensive testing to wide-ranging hands-on use, I put some mini PCs through its paces, and have found the top models you can get today. I would like to discuss with every one here

  40. Yandel

    Of the dozen or so mini PCs I have reviewed in recent months, several stand out as the cream of the crop. Whether you want a general use desktop, a gaming rig that can be taken on the go, or a powerful system that can still be stowed out of sight, I still recommend the mini PC for you.

  41. Rene

    My favorite mini PC overall is the custom mini PC, the custom version of the system that helped define the mini PC category. It’s even been updated recently, outfitted with twice as much RAM for the same price.

  42. Willie

    Despite rocking an older Intel Core processor, the littlest Mini PC managed to put up numbers that bested better-equipped systems, and offers a surprising amount of power in a pleasantly compact design. Based on my testing, it’s the best mini PC overall, delivering excellent power and value in a compact package.

  43. Boston

    A mini PC combines the performance of a good laptop with the upgradability of a full-size desktop computer together in a package the size of a paperback book

  44. Billy

    Mini PCs are fast enough for anything other than high-end gaming, and unlike some laptops, they include all the ports you need to connect multiple monitors and your favorite keyboard and mouse.

  45. Marlon

    The NUC’s small size means it can’t fit as many ports on the front or back, and during my tests, in both regular and heavy use, its fan noise was higher-pitched and more noticeable

  46. Trevon

    I recommend the “tall” version of the NUC, which adds half an inch to the height of the computer and has both a 256 GB M.2 SSD (for fast booting and loading of apps) and a 1 TB laptop hard drive (for storing large video files and other media).

  47. Aydan

    As a recent convert to the world of mini PCs, I often mocked these tiny devices as something which would never hold up to the computing power I needed. And that was true for several years. But the recent strides in technology have made me realize that the things that make mini PCs small don’t make them any less powerful.

  48. Jamal

    Typically, you will find several variants of any mini PC you look at, like the Intel NUC — the most popular choice. But read the finer details before you buy. Mini PCs come in two flavors: Barebones and Ready To Go.

  49. Aldo

    When you buy a mini PC, you only get the mini PC, nothing else. You will need to buy a keyboard and mouse, a monitor to hook it up to, and speakers to get sound. Of course, those are the basic peripherals you will need, but you can go wild and get much more.

  50. Ariel

    Unlike a tower PC, the number of things you can upgrade in a mini PC are severely limited. The smaller size means that the motherboard does not have as many slots for different parts, nor is there any physical room available to fit them. In fact, if you open up a mini PC, you’ll find it is perfectly packed with no room for anything more.

  51. Malcolm

    it is good to provide a full line of varied fanless embedded computers of all sizes to consolidate applications in transportation, entertainment, environmental and industrial facility monitoring, biometrics, industrial manufacturing, food production automation control and surveillance management, building automation, and other relevant IPC areas.

  52. Emmett

    Designed to streamline industrial automation processes such as factory control and product lifecycle management, all embedded box PCs are reliable, flexible and low-maintenance, and are the perfect choice for machine vision architecture. CPU, DRAM and minicards are easily accessible and installable, and each embedded BOX PC provides a wide range of expansion options. those are what we want

  53. Abram

    Engineered for longevity and resilience, the BOX PCs are durable, highly scalable, and applicable for extreme environments such as factories, and feature a user-friendly and highly flexible interface. These are the design standards for industrial computers

  54. Julien

    With cities becoming more and more crowded, city services are often stretched thin. Vehicle and license Plate Recognition provides a solution to alleviate overworked city officials by handling tasks such as smart parking meters, automated parking lots, and intelligent traffic cameras which can identify and report traffic violations. Our mini computers need to be used in these places

  55. London

    Intelligent Lighting Controls can respond to real-time factors to dim or turn on and off lights on a system-wide, specified-group, or individual level. Moreover, leverage the power of edge computing , the intelligent lightings can become a node to consolidates data streams from smart lighting, environmental monitoring, and video sensors. This allows city administrators to create a connected data hub that enables numerous new applications. Mini computers should play a role in building such a LAN

  56. Tomas

    Security staff are often tasked with handling a much larger number of people than they have the manpower for. Digital Surveillance helps to support their work by identifying potential security and safety threats and reporting to the security staff. Thanks to behavioral pattern recognition, the system avoids wasting time with false alarms. Because of the small installation area in this kind of place, the advantages of MINI computers appear.

  57. Maximilian

    If your small business values space almost as much as computing power, mini PCs give you an option for desktop performance in a compact, configurable, energy-efficient package. Learn which specs will have the greatest impact and what other features to consider.

  58. Randy

    If you can buy a traditional desktop with the same performance, you might wonder why you should consider a business mini PC.
    For many small businesses, managing growth also means managing space. If you don’t have room for a laptop or traditional desktop, a mini PC may be the right fit. Not only can a business mini PC hide away behind a monitor, but it’s also portable enough to move when you want to reconfigure your office or store. And with a design that’s as smart as it is compact, your employees don’t need to sacrifice productivity or creativity.

  59. Easton

    You may find mini PCs captivating due to size alone, but they also offer versatility and value. There are a range of mini PC products on the market today. Many are powered by the latest Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 processors, giving you great performance in a small form factor PC.

  60. Dustin

    Space is often at a premium for small businesses. Yet a full desktop tower typically stands at least 22 inches high—with widths and depths of 8 and 24 inches, respectively. Contrast that with a mini PC like the Intel® NUC. It’s less than 2 inches high, with a footprint of just over 4 x 4 inches.

  61. Luca

    Mini PCs can be set up in creative ways and places. Use a mini PC to support digital signage, interactive kiosks, conference room screens, or embedded IoT applications. Your employees also enjoy a great range of features to enhance daily productivity tasks, videoconferencing, and multimedia experiences.

  62. Phillip

    Mini PCs require little energy compared to desktops. The low-power components don’t produce much heat, so you won’t need power-hungry fans to keep the machines cool in small spaces. If energy savings are important to your business, you can choose an Energy Star–certified mini PC like the Intel® NUC to ensure efficient power consumption.

  63. Julius

    Small form factor PCs rely on CPU, RAM, and storage to provide performance comparable to a traditional desktop. And if you haven’t migrated to Windows* 10 yet, you can save by selecting a mini PC with the latest Windows* operating system already installed.

  64. Charlie

    The processor is the brain of a mini PC. If your employees need to tackle compute-intensive tasks—think working within data-heavy spreadsheets or graphic design programs—you need real performance. You can find it in mini PCs powered by the latest Intel® Core™ processors.

  65. Ronald

    RAM temporarily stores data in your mini PC’s memory. If you find you need more RAM for complex programs, it’s easy to add. But you should ensure you have the processing power to take advantage of the RAM you add.

  66. Jakob

    The addition of Intel® Optane™ memory makes mini PCs already equipped with powerful Intel® Core™ processors even more responsive. By remembering the programs your employees use most frequently, Intel® Optane™ memory makes it possible to access them quickly, so employees can work smoothly.

  67. Cade

    You need to equip your mini PC with a hard disk drive (HDD) or Intel® Solid State Drive or Intel® SSD large enough to store all your files and to easily launch and operate your programs and operating system. Unlike RAM, this drive handles permanent storage. Both size and speed matter.

  68. Brett

    HDDs contain mechanical parts, which can impact speed, but they’re less expensive. Intel® SSDs cost more, but provide faster system performance and responsiveness. Here’s another place where adding Intel® Optane™ memory to an Intel® Core™ processor and an HDD provides an advantage: storage capacity and overall performance and responsiveness comparable to Intel® SSDs, but at a lower price.

  69. Silas

    Intel® Core™ processors and Microsoft Windows* 10 have been optimized to work better together. Mini PCs with the latest Intel® Core™ processors and Windows* 10 Pro offer improved performance and security features compared with older computers, enabling employees to remain productive and businesses to stay competitive.5

  70. Keith

    To make mini PCs worthy of their name, most depend on graphics integrated into the CPU for video outputs. For many business needs, this graphics acceleration is sufficient. But if your business demands workstation capabilities, you can also choose a mini PC that supports discrete graphics.

  71. Emiliano

    You’ll need to connect your mini PC to communicate with all the devices you’d use with a traditional desktop. That could include a monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, drives, and so on. Look for multiple ports to serve your needs. For example, Intel® NUC Mini PCs offer front and back USB ports, HDMI ports, and the Thunderbolt™ 3 superset of capabilities. These include USB 3.1 plus 40 Gbps Thunderbolt™ and DisplayPort 1.2 from a single USB-C port. Intel® NUC Mini PCs are also available with a microSD slot and Gigabit Ethernet.

  72. Trey

    Intel® NUC is the only mini PC engineered, built, and backed by Intel. It also comes with a three-year warranty. You can choose among three options: a ready-to-go mini PC, a barebones Intel® NUC kit to build your own, or Intel® NUC boards. The latest Intel® NUCs feature 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, integrated or discrete graphics, and HDD or Intel® SSD options. It’s all engineered to work in small spaces and consume low power.

  73. Austin

    There is a growing trend in many universities and colleges to use mini-PCs for digital signage and display. They can be used to inform students about campus announcements, faculty news and class listings. The excellent portability and wireless connectivity of these devices means that they can be easily moved or sited wherever they are needed.

    Libraries can save space without losing power by installing mini-PCs to be used for internet research stations for students within the library, allowing more terminals – or simply more space for other items – than with bulky tower PCs.

    When it comes to industry, mini-PCs are being used for digital education in classrooms and laboratories. They are great for industrial training applications and their processing speed allows for quality video-conferencing.

  74. Hunter

    Nurses and health care professionals need equipment that is highly mobile to give them the edge in work where time matters. Mini-PCs fit easily onto triage carts and can go where bulky tower PCs cannot. Their light weight, small footprint and high performing computing power ensure that they deliver fast results while being very portable.

  75. Cameron

    Apart from their use in hospitals, family physicians are discovering the benefits of mini-PCs in their practices. Their size makes them attractive for use in reception areas and consulting rooms where space is at a premium. The attraction extends to their high computing power which allows physicians to have quick access to patient records.

  76. Thomas

    When choosing the right rugged mini PC, remember to consider:

    Location and Environment (The Two Ws)
    Stress Testing and Certifications
    Processing Power (CPU)
    Operating System and Security
    Memory, Storage and Expansion
    Obviously, these are not the only factors to consider.

    Yes, there are quite a few more, but a mini PC’s overall performance and price depend greatly on decisions resulting from these five key considerations.

    They’re a great starting place at the beginning of the buying process, and they’ll help the sales team understand the requirements and specifications your program or application needs in a rugged mini PC.

  77. Brayden

    The computers in the Fanless Industrial Line are protected from dust, debris and other particulates that clog fanned computers and damage internal components. Included in the Industrial Line is some certain Series which offer the highest performance density. with some industral Mini PCs you can harness the power of 10th generation Intel processing power (Comet Lake) that can be configured with discrete GPUs, additional storage, and I/O or expansion cards. The combination of small size, connectivity, fanless cooling and processing power offered by the certain Series is intended to help solution providers and device manufacturers solve their most complex computing challenges.

  78. Aaron

    Not every computer lives on a desk, far from it in fact. Today’s computer systems can truly go anywhere, and have to be mountable in virtually any position. When choosing your industrial PC, be sure to consider how you intend to mount it. Options like VESA, rail, rack and wall mounting will enable you to install the system where and how you want, but understanding your options will help you identify the mounting system that’s most applicable for your application. When space is at a premium, monitor-mounted PCs are a convenient option, while rackmounted systems are easy to integrate into an existing IT infrastructure and are ideal for headless (monitor-free) operation.

  79. Robert

    Where your computers will be located in your facility is just as important as the environment that will surround them. Is there limited room on your desks, in your assembly area, inside your enclosures or within the structure of your embedded device? Do you have proper airflow around the system in order to adequately cool it? The sheer size of your hardware solution is something you’ll want to pay careful attention to. In most embedded applications a traditional tower PC simply isn’t practical, making small form factor PCs based on Mini-ITX and NUC motherboards the prefered choice for the vast majority of industrial projects. However, when utilizing compact, fanless PCs the amount of space around the system will dictate how effectively it’s cooled, so the smaller the overall hardware footprint the better.

  80. Zachary

    Extreme temperatures, both high and low, can be devastating for hardware components. High temperatures can result in overheating while low and variable temperatures can lead to dangerous moisture buildup within the system. When choosing your hardware be sure to pay close attention to the temperatures ratings. It’s important to remember that not all “rugged” systems are created equal. For example, a tough looking industrial computer might only be rated to operate in 0°C~40°C and would likely struggle to survive in an automotive environment. A truly rugged computer on the other hand might carry a temperature rating of -25°C~70°C and be much better equipped to stand up to the rigors of mobile installations.

    Let’s start with the obvious: dust and airborne debris are computer killers. If you’re reading this on a traditional desktop tower PC, or even a laptop, take a quick look at its airflow vents. Pretty filthy, right? Now think about the amount of additional contaminant in the air of a manufacturing facility. Many computer systems rely on vents and fans to circulate air in order to cool internal hardware components, but as air travels into the case it brings in dust, dirt, and even airborne oil and grease particulate as well. Even in relatively clean facilities,over time this debris builds up, covering internal components, causing systems to overheat or the components themselves to short circuit. A well-designed, passively cooled chassis without vents or fans, helps keep out damaging dust and other airborne particulate while maintaining the system at a safe operating temperature.

    Rugged mini PCs are ideal computers for military, industrial and commercial applications, able to handle the everyday and a lot more. Opportunity for expansion is limited, but this typically isn’t a concern for the average rugged mini PC user. If you don’t have room for a full-sized rugged server or workstation but still want to make use of available space, then a rugged mini PC may be the right choice for your program or application.

  83. Kenneth

    Rugged mini PCs make for the perfect military or industrial PC, but there are many factors to consider before purchasing the right rugged mini PC for your program or application.

    The rugged mini PC’s small form factor isn’t usually ideal for programs and applications that expect significant expansion down the line.

    Since the Mini-ITX motherboards in rugged mini PCs are small, most can’t physically support a ton of PCIe slots, which limits opportunities for GPU, storage and network expansion.

    Thankfully, rugged mini PCs are configurable to your needs upon purchase, and should you, for example, desire more storage capacity, hard drives and solid-state drives are easy to replace thanks to the rugged mini PC’s small form factor. You could also consider external USB storage options.

  84. Henry

    Building your own small form factor computer offers several apparent advantages.

    Each computer is built specifically for each application. There’s no risk of “over-building” if you build for only the task at hand’s necessities. The best way to avoid paying for components you don’t need is to not build them in.
    You know exactly what components are in your computer. Think you’ll need more RAM? A larger storage medium? A better motherboard? You can pick your components from any manufacturer, supplier, or distributor for complete customization.
    Keeping IT up to speed. If they built it, they’ll know it. Producing custom mini PCs in-house gets your IT people up to speed from the motherboard up.
    Build as you go. Building separately allows you to roll out as systems are built. This gives you access to instant results and metrics so you can “fine-tune” future builds.
    While these have long been cited as the best reasons to build a mini PC yourself for industrial, commercial, and even personal applications, technology has changed…

  85. Timothy

    these former benefits of building a custom mini PC yourself turn into unnecessary constraints.

    Forward-thinking capabilities allow for product evolution. A small form-factor solution that allows for product growth allows for innovation. When you build a mini PC to the minimum specifications, you’re setting a bar that your hardware can’t go past. Allowing for the potential of future functionality while supporting today’s business needs is smarter engineering.
    Components engineered for compatibility. Anyone who has sat down to build a PC, mini or otherwise, has encountered the headache of trying to get disparate computer components to all play nice with each other. NUCs are engineered for successful implementation with compatible components across the board.
    IT-friendly builds. Full specs are available for each NUC, so your tech team knows exactly what they’re working with. In addition, because these units are standardized for production, you won’t see a wave of variant systems, each built for a different application. You can give your team a single machine to learn and maintain.
    Production models lower your cost. Much of the supposed cost savings when you build a mini PC comes from skipping parts you don’t feel you need. When you buy a NUC build, you’re getting a fully featured unit that is affordable because it is produced to a certain specification in a certain quantity. This “bulk” approach helps keep your cost lower.
    Faster roll out. Because you’re buying a ready-to-roll scalable platform, you don’t have to invest the man hours in building each unit separately. Order the quantity you need, and they arrive ready for installation. Because you’ve got a more capable system, you also avoid the fits and starts of a rollout staggered by one-at-a-time production timelines.

  86. Alejandro

    A NUC is a mini PC, but not all mini PCs are NUCs. Just so we’re talking about the same thing, a mini PC for this blog is a small form factor computer that offers full computing capabilities. Ideally, for most users, they’re big on power but small on size, making them perfect for smart appliances, industrial automation, or just making the most of your small desk’s space. This is a broad category that allows for the fact that some users build a mini PC that fits a specific need, and that configuration may not be common or in widespread use while other users choose pre-engineered models.

  87. Zachary

    Fanless industrial mini PC is an kind of industrial computer that is different from traditional industrial computers. It is oriented to specific application areas and is customized and developed according to the demanding environmental requirements such as temperature and space for use.

  88. Evan

    The advantage of fanless design is undoubtedly mute and dustproof. With the increase of using time, the traditional industrial computer will accumulate a lot of dust inside. At the same time, the long-time operation of the fan bearing will cause problems such as deflection and damage. Therefore, the industrial computer that has been used for a long time and does not pay attention to regular maintenance will produce large noise; And the internal temperature will be dissipated through the whole alloy case, the advantage of this method is not only to solve the problem of computer heat dissipation, but also to protect the internal components.

  89. Richard

    To make mini PCs worthy of their name, most depend on graphics integrated into the CPU for video outputs. For many business needs, this graphics acceleration is sufficient. But if your business demands workstation capabilities, you can also choose a mini PC that supports discrete graphics.

  90. Beacher

    You’ll need to connect your mini PC to communicate with all the devices you’d use with a traditional desktop. That could include a monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, drives, and so on. Look for multiple ports to serve your needs. For example, Intel® NUC Mini PCs offer front and back USB ports, HDMI ports, and the Thunderbolt™ 3 superset of capabilities. These include USB 3.1 plus 40 Gbps Thunderbolt™ and DisplayPort 1.2 from a single USB-C port. Intel® NUC Mini PCs are also available with a microSD slot and Gigabit Ethernet.

  91. Ingemar

    Intel® Core™ processor-based mini PCs do everything a desktop tower can in a fraction of the space—and at a fraction of the weight. Many mini PCs weigh less than three pounds, enabling your business to move PCs and reconfigure your space as you grow. And if you need computers on-site at events, you’ll be delighted with how economically you can ship mini PCs.

  92. Payne

    Intel® NUC is the only mini PC engineered, built, and backed by Intel. It also comes with a three-year warranty. You can choose among three options: a ready-to-go mini PC, a barebones Intel® NUC kit to build your own, or Intel® NUC boards. The latest Intel® NUCs feature 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, integrated or discrete graphics, and HDD or Intel® SSD options. It’s all engineered to work in small spaces and consume low power.

  93. Herman

    Mini computers are rapidly gaining ground in multiple industries. Let’s have a look at some of the most common industries that utilize these devices.

    Healthcare
    Medical institutions are busy places where specialists access massive patient records, manage staggering paperwork, and frequently make critical decisions. As a result, the goal is to create a more streamlined workspace to ease administration.

    A Mini PC is ideal in such situations as it does not occupy valuable desk space, allowing staff to perform their responsibilities smoothy.

    Design/Digital Agencies
    The creative sector needs an IT solution that clears table space and delivers true desktop power. Once again, mini computers fit the bill perfectly. Their compact size and capabilities improve concentration and allow users to give their best in coming up with original concepts.

    Finance
    Bankers and stock traders handle quantitative reports, important customer data, and large workloads on a daily basis. Featuring powerful processors, our Mini PC series delivers raw computing power and performance these professionals need for quality workflows.

    SMBs
    Startups and medium-sized companies require affordable yet power-packed IT solutions that offer them an edge over the competition. Hence, the idea is to suggest resources that can give them the best bang for their buck. Our tiny computers take a few minutes to install and deploy so that these organizations can focus on business strategy from the get-go.

  94. Joseph

    The size is more dynamic, we call it “NUC type”. NUC is the abbreviation of “Next Generation Computing Unit” and was initiated by Intel to promote the development of small windows-based desktop computers using its mobile center processors. The chip giant has released a series of nuci-branded mini pc components in its product line, and several traditional pc component manufacturers have followed suit and launched similar models

  95. Mason

    Most of the mini PCs on the market make use of Intel silicon, and the dead giveaway whether you’re looking at a mobile CPU or a desktop one is usually (but not always) the letter at the end of the processor’s number. Look for a “T” or a “K,” or no letter at all, as a dead giveaway for a desktop chip (for example, Core i5-9400T), or a “U” or “Y” for a mobile one. The chip family and generation being equal, you can generally expect more muscle (usually a consequence of more cores and higher base clocks) from the desktop version of, say, a Core i5 than from a mobile Core i5.

  96. Zachary

    The most obvious departure from a consumer NUC to its industrial counterpart is the enclosure. Intel’s own NUC computers utilize a mix of polycarbonate and plastics in addition to metal components, materials that are perfectly adequate for the vast majority of consumer applications. However, in a more demanding industrial environment, where systems may be subject to shock, vibration, or even impacts by machinery or tools, industrial NUC systems most commonly employ steel or aluminum for the chassis, lid, or both. A range of stamping, laser cutting, and extrusion techniques are used to create industrial NUC enclosures, depending on the specific needs and budget of the end user.

  97. Christian

    This arrangement is what’s called in reseller lingo a “bare-bones PC.” You’ll want to make sure you know what you are getting. In some cases, a given mini system is sold in bare-bones form, as well as in pre-configured versions with storage, RAM, and Windows present.

  98. Cheyenne

    mini PCs are small form factor mini PCs designed to fit in space-confined areas and are ideal for demanding applications within the Industrial, Commercial, Scientific Research, Military, Public Safety, Utility, Transportation, mining and Telecommunications markets.

  99. Makenzie

    mini PCs are built to survive where other hardware fails. Engineered around a range of NUC and Mini-ITX motherboards, these mini PCs stand above other embedded box PCs thanks to the cutting edge industrial enclosure designs and innovative passive cooling technology. See why industry leading companies around the world depend on excellent industrial hardware.

  100. Evan

    When Intel chose to leap into the burgeoning small-form-factor PC market in 2012 with its Next Unit of Computing (NUC) platform, the move was met with a mix of surprise and bemusement. With a solid hold on the CPU manufacturing segment, it was somewhat surprising that the processor giant would jump headlong into full system manufacturing and distribution.

  101. Brayden

    Intel’s Next Unit of Computing combines considerable performance with a small-form-factor motherboard that can still offer the level of connectivity required for a wide range of applications, both consumer and industrial. However, Intel’s own consumer hardware, and that of other manufacturers who have embraced the form factor, can only go so far when being implemented in more challenging industrial environments. A number of distinct differences in build quality, reliability, lifecycle, and connectivity need to be considered when selecting a hardware solution.

  102. Aiden

    You need to factor those parts and a Windows license (unless you plan to use Linux) into the total cost. The parts you will need, mind you, will be small: the kind that you’d typically find in a laptop, not a desktop. Many small PCs like these make use of DDR4 SO-DIMMs—laptop-style RAM modules—for their main memory instead of full-size desktop DDR4 DIMMs.

  103. Landon

    Mini PCs are becoming increasingly popular with each passing year, and not just because they are nowadays able to rival the computing power of traditional tower PCs. Often referred to as Next Unit of Computing (NUC) PCs by Intel, some of their benefits include portability and higher flexibility. As such, you can easily take the unit with you wherever you go, and of course, have an easier time transporting and setting it up if you’re moving house. No wonder, as these diminutive devices can have a footprint of less than 100 x 100 mm.

  104. Dominic

    Keep in mind that “bare-bone” mini PCs, although much cheaper than their ready-to-go counterparts, come only with the case, the motherboard, and the processor (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB ports are included on both models). This means that procuring and installing the RAM and the hard drive will fall on your shoulders. This is a good option if you want to reuse old PC parts, but make sure to check if they are compatible first.

  105. Jesse

    AMD and Intel have been at war over the CPU throne for what seems like ages now, and when choosing a mini PC, picking the right brand from the start will be imperative. This is because you cannot replace the CPU as it comes integrated into the motherboard—you actually can do this yourself, but it will void the warranty. Be sure to research both options for this particular purpose, and pay special attention to laptop processors, as mini PCs use only this type of CPU.

  106. Edwin

    they do cost more. In regards to mini PCs, you can choose between two types: M.2 and 2.5-inch drives. While the M.2 is flash storage only, the 2.5 gives you the freedom to choose between HDD and SSD drives. If you’re an SSD aficionado, though, there is no reason not to choose the M.2 option.

  107. Camden

    Mini PCs don’t come with peripherals, so you will need to obtain the right keyboard, monitor, speakers, and mouse. As long as your old peripherals are compatible with the mini PC you’re considering, you’re good to go. Always do your research beforehand, though.

  108. Gregory

    always keep in mind the overall upgrade potential of your machine. Mini PCs are inherently powerful (depending how much you pay for them), and they typically have a long lifecycle, meaning that they can serve you for years to come. However, at some point you might find yourself wanting more processing power or a better graphics card. Make sure your unit allows such alterations before you buy.

  109. Alfredo

    you may know already that you have more than enough space for the PC, or you might be transporting it from place to place, and in the latter case, it’s crucial to know ahead of time if space is a concern.

  110. Jasper

    If you know your where is inside of a military vehicle and your what is an environment with rough, irregular terrain, you should probably consider having your mini PC tested and certified to MIL-STD-810 shock or vibration standards.

  111. Jermaine

    Your rugged mini PC must have the processing power necessary to support your program or application, or you risk running into lag and slow response times. Mission-critical systems simply cannot have this problem.

  112. Peyton

    A sound way to avoid a mini PC overheating or breaking down two months out of the box is to look for an industrial grade fanless PC that has no moving parts and has a high temperature threshold – at least 60°C in ambient temperature. These models will offer high reliability in all conditions, ensuring their longevity no matter how you use them.

  113. Gianni

    Think of a core as a manufacturing floor assembly line and the threads as the technology that separates the parts or components along the way.

  114. Leland

    The weight of the system may also come into the equation depending on the program or application, but thankfully, most mini PCs are light and won’t pose a weight problem, unless weight limits have already been reached.

  115. Rolando

    The more assembly lines, the more data that can be processed, as each core can facilitate an individual flow of data. that’s very improtant for mini PC

  116. Tobias

    Cores and thread counts are key factors to consider when deciding on a CPU for your rugged mini PC.

  117. Dayton

    If your where is on board an aircraft, then your what is an altitude-variable environment, and you should consider having your mini PC tested and certified to DO-160 or MIL-STD-810 altitudinal standards.

  118. Kendall

    you must understand the more threads a processor has, the better the management of that same data, which, in turn, increases instructional efficiency and overall system performance.

  119. Tyshawn

    Your mini PC’s long-term expandability is important, so always be on the lookout for rugged mini PCs with PCIE slots and plenty of USB 3.0 and gigabit Ethernet ports.

  120. Sidney

    Perhaps most important for your rugged mini PC long-term is its memory, storage and expansion capabilities. The amount of RAM and SODIMMs your mini PC has makes a huge difference in how it performs.

  121. Duncan

    Whether you prefer Windows 10, Ubuntu or CentOS, always ask the manufacturer which operating systems the mini PC can support just to be safe.

  122. Jeramiah

    RAM provides an efficient buffer between the CPU and your choice of storage drive, which is often slower in terms of data transfer. In turn, the CPU can perform calculations based on the instructions it’s given at a swifter speed.

  123. Misael

    Finding a rugged mini PC that supports your choice of operating system is an important factor to consider during the decision-making process.

  124. Makhi

    Yes! a mini PC’s overall performance and price depend greatly on decisions resulting from much key considerations.

  125. Nathen

    Industrial computer often runs in a harsh environment, and the data security requirements are higher than ordinary computer. Therefore, the industrial mini PC usually carries out special designs such as reinforcement, dustproof, moisture proof, anti-corrosion and radiation protection.

  126. Lamar

    Regarding security measures, a TPM 2.0 cryptoprocessor is another key factor to consider, especially given the Department of Defense’s TPM requirements.

  127. Deon

    in my opinion, Two 16GB SODIMMs, for instance, are going to provide smoother multitasking and a lower likelihood of performance decline than two 8GB SODIMMs, since your computer has more RAM with which to store short-term data from ongoing tasks.

  128. Matthias

    TPM 2.0 acts as a hardware authenticator and increases the level of protection your mini PC has outside of just software-related security solutions.

  129. Konnor

    The embedded computer has very high requirements for expansion. The interface design needs to meet specific external equipment. Therefore, in most cases, the industrial mini computer needs to be customized separately to meet the demand.

  130. Malik

    Considering all the different manufacturers that make rugged mini PCs, it can be a challenge to choose which one to buy from.
    And even after you decide on a manufacturer, choosing which mini PC model or configuration is right for you can be even more overwhelming.
    But choosing a rugged mini PC doesn’t have to be hard. Knowledge is power, and once you’re aware of what your program or application needs, the decision-making process becomes that much easier

  131. Weston

    Most rugged mini PC manufacturers know that their systems will be used in constrained spaces, so they should provide you with the system’s dimensions from the start, whether on a downloadable datasheet or in a list of system specifications on their website.

  132. Bennett

    if they don’t provide the necessary information outright or if it’s difficult to locate, someone at the company knows the product’s dimensions, so don’t be afraid to contact them and ask.

  133. Cade

    Although a few slight environmental modifications are to be expected when installing a rugged computer for your program or application, you don’t want to have to make a ton of changes. This can be both costly and time-consuming.

  134. Aarav

    According to the feasible installation methods on site, industrial mini PC can be divided into wall-mounted, rack-mounted, desktop, and embedded. At the same time, the outlet mode should also be considered to avoid wiring difficulties, such as front outlet and rear outlet.

  135. Baron

    The enough informationa is great starting place at the beginning of the buying mini pc, and they’ll help you understand the requirements and specifications your program or application needs in a rugged mini PC.

  136. Geovanni

    Environmental fitability. The reason why the industrial computer is different from the ordinary personal computer is that it can be applied to harsh environments such as ultra-high or ultra-low temperature, high dust, high vibration and so on. Therefore, when selecting an industrial mini computer, clients should carefully check whether its parameters can meet the needs of the application environment. Such as operating temperature, storage temperature, etc.

  137. Carmelo

    The reach of computers within companies has gone beyond office space and server rooms. With the advance of Industry 4.0, more and more computers are now on the production floor or in the field. This in order to monitor and control the production processes of the company. For some years, this has led to the design of new types of robust industrial computers, which are made for the most difficult conditions, even extreme while responding to the necessary computing requirements, being also used in specialized equipment.

  138. Deegan

    Since the environment where the computer will be, depends on the application that will be given. For example, what type of operation will it be used for? Will it be the operating room of a hospital with a controlled and sterile climate? Or a production floor for electronic components? Think of an extreme case, a plant that cleans metal parts with pneumatic hand tools, generating a lot of metallic dust in the environment. Analyze this factor well to avoid spending on equipment that does not resist the conditions in which it will work. If the environment is extreme maybe you can even consider rugged device.

  139. Kyson

    Some computer fans blow in and others blow out, depending on the location of the fan and the dynamics of air circulation in the box. When a computer fan blows inward, it carries not only fresh air, but also waste such as dust and dirt. These wastes can accumulate over time and interfere with the electronic components inside the computer, causing them to fail. By using a computer without a fan, the entry of dirt that can damage the computer is eliminated.

  140. Jair

    The industrial mini PC is called the industrial control computer. It is a computer specially designed for industrial control. It is used to monitor and control the machinery and equipment, production process and data parameters used in the production.

  141. Jerimiah

    As with any computer choice in general, we must evaluate the performance requirements of our computer. Will it be an operator station, process data from a PLC or even manipulate a robot? Nowadays there are many options of processors as powerful in the industrial pc world as in any other computer used in any other field. Read the technical specifications of the computers you are evaluating and even look for additional information specific of the capabilities of each one of the components.

  142. Bridger

    the whole point of having computers at the production floor is to be able to monitor all the information remotely, even from the cloud. So, you have to determine if, according to your business we only need Ethernet ports to communicate with the PC’s. Since one of the benefits of a fanless pc is that they can be installed in many more places, maybe you can even consider wireless connectivity, if it’s suitable for your system

  143. Graham

    What are the advantages of a rugged mini PC?

    There are three primary advantages of equipping your program or application with a rugged mini PC: affordability, small form factor and simplicity.

    Affordability: Most rugged mini PCs fall within the range of $1,000 to $3,000, depending on the configuration.
    Small form factor: The small form factor of a rugged mini PC is perfect for desktop naval or aerospace applications and environments in which space is limited and weight must be controlled. They’re lightweight, can fit into the palm of your hand and are a lot quieter than many rugged computers, especially the fanless rugged mini PC models, which you won’t even realize are there.
    Simplicity: Rugged mini PCs are ideal computers for military, industrial and commercial applications, able to handle the everyday and a lot more. Opportunity for expansion is limited, but this typically isn’t a concern for the average rugged mini PC user. If you don’t have room for a full-sized rugged server or workstation but still want to make use of available space, then a rugged mini PC may be the right choice for your program or application.

  144. Luke

    the industrial computing segment began to take notice of Intel’s new platform. While small-form-factor systems based on Mini-ITX and Pico-ITX boards were nothing new, the NUC offered a unique combination of size and performance that made it ideal for installation in space-constrained environments that still required a fully featured, versatile PC. In addition, where previous generations of mass-produced, proprietary small-form-factor PCs often required customization to best serve a given application, NUC offered a fixed I/O configuration that didn’t rely on utilizing onboard pin headers to achieve a suitable I/O coastline.

  145. Caleb

    Most mini PCs are as “mini” as they are because they rely on the basic-grade graphics acceleration built into the CPU to power their video outputs—no separate graphics card is involved. This integrated graphics silicon will suffice for productivity work and video playback.

  146. Bentley

    Technical parameters. Just like choosing a personal computer, when buying a industrial computer, we also need to consider the configuration: processor (processing speed), storage, memory, software, and so on. The choice of each industrial computer to choose the configuration depends on the comprehensive use of the equipment in the application. If the configuration is too high, the efficiency of the industrial computer cannot be fully utilized. But if the configuration is too low level, it would affect whole operation speed, device’s performance on site.

  147. Simeon

    Almost all the noise that a computer makes comes from its fans. By eliminating the fans, the noise is eliminated. Creating a computer that works silently is an important consideration for some computers, such as meeting rooms or hospitals.

  148. Bernard

    as for expansion interfaces. It is necessary to consider the interface type of the industrial computer, whether it has RS-232/485, CPCI, USB, Profinet and other types of interfaces. If the machine is not an industrial computer but an assembly machine, clients should pay attention to the interface when selecting the board.

  149. Trystan

    The moving parts of a computer are susceptible to mechanical failures caused by debris, shock and vibration. Most, if not all, of the moving parts of a computer are fans. When a fan has a mechanical failure, it not only requires a replacement fan but also puts the stability and health of the computer in danger. As the temperature increases, the equipment may turn off unexpectedly. Some electronic components may overheat and be permanently damaged. With a fanless computer, the risk of mechanical failure of a fan and the resulting downtime and potential damage to electronic components is eliminated.

  150. Benjamin

    If a given system is a bare-bones kit, you’ll need to get more than a little hands-on with it to get it up and running. But a kit gives you maximum flexibility in terms of component selection. That said, one advantage of a pre-configured system, apart from the easier setup, is the fact that Windows or macOS comes installed; you won’t need to install and update the OS and its drivers.

  151. William

    Most of the acceleration of desktop computers to ultra-miniaturization occurred in the past decade. Of course, it is easy to find ordinary business boxes and huge power towers with large graphics cards and multiple drives. But since the “Small Form Factor” (SFF) PC revolution in the early 20th century, many desktops have changed from half-sized towers to compact cubes, and in the most extreme reduction, they have become not much larger than USB flash drives. Small pieces.

  152. Jacob

    The term “microcomputer” originated in the 1970s-the “mini” of the personal computer that appeared at that time was in sharp contrast to the room-sized mainframe computer. But after 40 years of evolution, the computer changes are indeed amazing, just like Mini PC

  153. Malaki

    Select embedded PC according to the using space size. The mini industrial computer usually needs to be installed in a rack or other small space, so the installation size constitutes its primary limitation. According to the installation size, the industrial computer can vary in height from 1U to 7U (1U=4.45cm). At the same time, it has developed a smaller fanless embedded industrial computer in the past ten years. It is only around ten centimeters for length, and it also has more complicated workstation. So, first of all, clients should choose the product specifications according to the size of the installation on site.

  154. Jayvion

    The computers without fan can be placed in places not suitable for equipment with fans. For example, there may be a need to locate a computer in an outdoor space exposed to rain or snow. While a computer with fans could not function if exposed to the elements, a computer without a fan could tolerate exposure.

  155. Cornelius

    Since Industrial PC’s are not consumer electronics users oriented (due to being a more specific market with higher requirements on materials and specs) the price will be higher than regular pc’s. So you have to determine the cost/benefit rate. Do you really need a more expensive local PC with all its components or maybe just a terminal connected to a server through a remote session?
