Shuttle is now offering a fanless barebone PC in a 3-litre format.
The XC60J range of the mini PC manufacturer now adds a 7 cm tall mini PC with an Intel Celeron J3355 dual-core processor (2 GHz) in 14 nm architecture.
The virtually silent platform, which is suitable for constant operation (24/7) at an ambient temperature of up to 40 °C, boasts a total of eight serial interfaces (8x RS-232, one of which can be switched to RS-422/RS-485) as its key spec and is therefore aimed at the areas of automation, POS, industry and machine control in which USB or IP-based transmission will not apply.
Its steel chassis houses the mainboard with an Intel Celeron processor (Apollo Lake) and Intel HD Graphics 500. Up to 8 GB of DDR3L memory and a 3.5" hard disk or 2.5" SSD can be installed as desired. The two free M.2 slots (1x M.2-2280 and 1x M.2-2230) can be used, for example, for an NVMe SSD and a WLAN module. Front and back panel reveal 1x HDMI, 1x VGA, 2x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, audio connections and the mentioned eight serial interfaces.
Instant system start-up, once power is applied, can be forced by setting a jumper. The actual power supply is 19 V. Alternatively, the XC60J can also be operated at 12 V.
The recommended retail price from Shuttle for the XC60J is EUR 192.00 (excluding VAT).
