Fanless PCs

Fanless PCs have a wide range of advantages in an industrial location as opposed to a fan-cooled computer. Computers normally have fans and vents to provide air supply designed to keep the CPU at a cool operating temperature. Fanless systems use a passive heat sink to divert heat away from the CPU without the drawback of sucking in dust, dirt, moisture, debris or other substances that can cause harm to the computer. Fanless PCs also have improved air cooling technology to keep operating temperatures at optimal levels with solid state drives instead of traditional spinning drives and with this lack of moving parts, offering better reliability.

STX Technology works with many Australian companies and understands the requirements of businesses operating in different industries. Industrial Computers need to operate reliably in a wide range of environments, some involving harsh and demanding conditions. In areas with dust, dirt, water, humidity, debris, temperature extremes and vibration or shock, a Fanless Computer offers reliable operation.

There are some environments where only fanless PCs can be used. Sterile environments such as medical operating rooms, pharmaceuticalshorticulture grow facilities and other similar conditions.  These areas are very sensitive to contaminants that can go through a computer’s fan. In hazardous locations such as mining, oil-drilling, military sites, manufacturing or construction, it is very important to use only fanless computers with no moving parts to minimise the risk of creating sparks. For these applications, fully sealed fanless units are recommended.

Companies around the world are looking for ways to keep their operational costs down. STX Technology’s fanless computers are energy efficient, have longer life cycles and operate reliably in harsh environments, ensuring lower maintenance costs and limiting down time.

Advantages of Fanless PCs:

  • Suitable for harsh environments. Fanless computers don’t suck in dust, dirt, water sprays, debris that may cause a malfunction of the unit. This ensures more ways to use Industrial Fanless PCs: indoors, outdoors, in regular environments and in harsh conditions or production areas.
  • No moving parts. Fanless systems are less sensitive to vibration and shock making them a reliable solution for in-vehicle use, warehousingforklift and other industrial applications.
  • Reliable. Fans are one of the weakest points in a computer. Fanless technology is a reliable solution for controlling the heating of the unit. The Solid State Drive ensures fast and reliable operation of user data.
  • Energy efficient. Heat sinks used in Fanless PCs operate more efficiently than units with fans leading to more cost-effective operation with less impact on the environment.
  • Smaller unit sizes available. Computers built with fanless technology are more compact. For example, STX Technology offers fanless PCs with screen sizes starting from 8.4 inches for the Australian market, this ensures more flexibility in situating industrial computers.
  • Longer product life cycle. Engineered specifically for industrial use, fanless computers have a range of benefits to ensure longer reliable operation including no moving parts, built tough to withstand demanding environments. All these factors make this solution more cost-effective and reduce operating costs.

STX Technology offers a wide range of Fanless Computers in Australia: Industrial Touch Panel PCs and Touch Monitors, Large Format Touch Panel PCs and Monitors, and Vehicle Mount Computers and Monitors. There are fully sealed options with IP67 rated connectors available as well as rugged stainless steel and aluminium units.
