Help Me Choose My PC

The table below is intended to guide you towards the most appropriate PC for your application, and concentrates mainly on the differences between our various PC models. For this reason, features which are common across the range – such as built-in 4G modems or GPS receivers – are not discussed.

Please contact us for any advice.

If you want the PC to… …then we recommend:   
be used in a vehicle environment CQ family PCs are designed specifically for the vehicle environment, and are E-mark certified.
support a wide input voltage range All our PCs can support wide input voltage ranges:

Note that we recommend the use of a voltage dropper for 24V vehicles.

have as low a power consumption as possible The CQ40N series has the lowest power consumption across our range.
be as high performance as possible The CQ89G PC features a 10th generation Intel Core i9 processors and a Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000 GPU.  Also consider the CQ70N series for a non-GPU solution.
support wide operating temperature ranges CQ family PCs support operating temperature ranges of -40 to +70 °C.
be passively cooled (fanless) – in order to support extremely dusty environments CQ family PCs are completely fanless, cooled by air passing over the external cooling fins, so dust is never drawn into the chassis.
be passively cooled (fanless) – in order to be as quiet as possible CQ family PCs are completely fanless.
be as small as possible The CQ40N range hosts our smallest PCs, with the CQ41N and CQ43N being the smallest and the CQ47N coming in slightly larger in size.
power on and off in response to an external trigger line (e.g. ignition feed in a vehicle) CQ family PCs all have external trigger feeds as standard.
be as low-cost as possible All our PCs offer great value for money, but the CQ41N is our lowest priced PC which is suitable for a vehicle environment.
support multiple independent displays (up to 7) All of our CQ range support multiple monitors. The CQ77G and CQ89G feature a dedicated GPU so have the most display outputs with 7 and 5 respectively. Whereas the CQ40NCQ50, CQ60N and CQ70N PCs can output to 3 displays.
support 2.5″ removable media The  CQ50CQ60, CQ70 series and the CQ89G all support 2 removable HDD/SSD drives as standard.
support RAID The  CQ50CQ60, CQ70 series and CQ89G can all support 2 internal drives in RAID configuration.
have a built-in backup battery (UPS) for short-term self-powering CQ family PCs are available with a built-in UPS.
provide regulated 12V or 5V outputs for external devices CQ40N and CQ50 series feature a regulated 12V line supporting up to 2A.
support multiple cellular modems (4G / LTE) All of our CQ family PC’s support 4G/LTE modules.
support Power over Ethernet (PoE) The CQ50P features 4 and the CQ60 and CQ70 series PC’s features up to 8 GbE LAN ports with optional PoE. The CQ89G comes with 8 GbE ports with PoE as standard.
be VESA or DIN rail mounted The CQ40N series PCs can support VESA or DIN rail mounting by special request.
