Technical necessities transformed into aesthetic and ergonomic benefits
Dissipating the heat produced by the mainboard and display during operation is the main challenge when designing fan-less industrial PCs. In order to provide sufficient cooling, heat pipes connect the processor to the aluminum cast housing, which then has to dissipate the energy via as many cooling fins as possible. In this case, the particular design of the housing transformed these cooling fins into ergonomic grip surfaces for display orientation as required in various situations. The cooling grid is designed as an integral part of the main body and visually communicates the robustness of the product, promising reliability in harsh environments.
