The AU970: A Quad-Core, Harsh-Environment, Fanless System

By ·Categories: Technology·Published On: May 20th, 2013·2 min read·

We’re excited to announce the addition of another product to the line–the AU970 Intel® Core™ Fanless Computer. We designed this guy to power demanding industrial applications, like high-end automation, data collection and surveillance.

Here’s what we find exciting about the AU970. Be sure to watch the video below, too!

High Performance

The AU970 offers high-performance computing for even the most graphics-intensive applications. Supporting up to a 16 GB dual-channel 1333 DDR3 memory, this system comes equipped with a dual- or quad-core Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 CPU and QM77 chipset.

Third-generation Intel Core processors efficiently deliver top-of-the-line graphics performance while taking up very little space: We are proud to be among the first to offer this technology in a fanless chassis.

Connected System

A comprehensive array of I/O allows for a wide range of connectivity options, including two eSATA and CFast ports for external storage, a SIM card slot for 3G connectivity in remote deployments, and an 8-bit Digital I/O port.

The AU970 has 3 LAN ports (one with Intel iAMT for remote support), 10 USB ports, 4 COM ports and 2 DVI ports for dual independent display.

The system has a secure terminal block connector for wide input 9-32V DC power with remote power-switch capability.

Rugged and Reliable

The system’s heavy-duty heatsink and chassis provide fanless cooling, with a wide operating temperature of -20C to 55C (-4F to 131F). The fanless design ensures silent operation, as well as reliability in highly dust- and dirt-prone environments. It also comes equipped with a wall-mounting kit for easy installation.

“Our goal with the AU970 is to provide a system that supports the most challenging applications in the toughest environments,” said JP Ishaq, Logic Supply Product Manager. “It’s rugged, reliable, and fanless; it’s extremely versatile; and it has plenty of processing power for industrial applications.”

We’d love to hear what you think of this or any other products. Leave a comment below!

We’re also offering the AU972 Expandable Computer, which, in addition to the above, offers dual PCI express expansion slots for a variety of additional I/O–from network port additions to COM ports and specialized hard drive hot-swap bays.
