Fanless System with Reliable Thermal Design

The TANK-XM811's thermal design is optimized for better heat conduction using a pin-fin heatsink concept. This enhances two dimensional heat conduction and reduces flow impedance for better heat dissipation in this fan-less system. The overall weight and dimensions are thus reduced, significantly enhancing system reliability in vibration-sensitive applications, such as AGV. Moreover, this innovative thermal design allows the TANK-XM811 to maximize superior performance than those with traditional heatsink consisting of parallel fins.

Advanced High-efficient Fan Kit Releases Extreme
Computing Power

For applications that require a lot of computing power, users can add an external fan for active cooling. This will help maintain high system performance in high temperature environments and under high CPU loads. This design is reliable and prevents dust from getting into the hardware. It is also easy to disassemble and clean.
