Arriving soon will be the new CQ60 series fanless PC. Compared to our existing fanless PCs, the CQ60's slightly larger form factor, and therefore greater heat dissipation capability, enables support for significantly more powerful Intel processors, as well as an optional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU.
The CQ60 series is split into the CQ60N (standard graphics) and the CQ60G (NVIDIA graphics). Both models feature powerful 6th generation Intel Core i7-6700TE quad core processors with support for up to 32 GB RAM, 2 2.5" removable SSD/HDD slots and up to 4 PoE GbE LAN ports.
The CQ60N features a unique expansion slot which can be used to add a range of functionality to the PC, including 4 x GbE LAN ports (giving 8 x GbE LAN ports in total) or a module supporting 3 x internal LTE modems (giving 5 x LTE modems in total - all with easily accessible SIM card slots).
Meanwhile the CQ60G features a built-in NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU which supports 768 CUDA cores, making the CQ60G perfect for applications involving demanding parallel processing such as autonomous vehicles. The combination of both NVIDIA and Intel graphics chipsets means that the CQ60G supports 7 independent HDMI outputs - perfect for digital signage applications involving large numbers of displays.
As with all our PCs, numerous built-in options are available, including GPS, Wi-Fi, video capture and CAN-bus. The fanless nature of the CQ60 series makes it suitable for extremely dusty environments, and the device's ruggedness is demonstrated by multiple MIL-STD-810G tests. The CQ60 series is undergoing E-mark certification, after which it will be fully approved for in-vehicle use. A 2-year warranty is standard, extendable to 3 or 5 years.

Removable mounting flanges supplied
MIL-STD-810G (with SSD)
Passive cooling (fanless)
*The above figures are without mounting flanges at base. With mounting flanges, width at base increases by 29 mm and height increases by 6 mm.
CQ60N: 3.9 Kg (base specification)
CQ60G: 4.8 Kg (base specification)
Operating Temperature: -40°C to +70°C
Storage Temperature: -40°C to +80°C
The above temperature ranges are at base specification and with extended temperature RAM & SSD. Using standard RAM results in an operating temperature range of 0°C to +70°C. Using a standard SSD results in an operating temperature range of 0°C to +55°C. Some optional features also restrict the unit's operating temperature range - for the operating temperature range of a specific configuration please contact us.
In common with all passively cooled (fanless) computers, the PC should be installed in a location that allows cooling air to flow freely over the chassis fins.
The above figures were measured with a base-spec CQ67G PC (i.e. CQ60G series with Core i7 processor, 8 GB RAM and 120 GB SSD).
