The benefits of a fanless industrial PC

An industrial PC with fanless operation offers a host of advantages for industrial computing. From higher energy efficiency and quieter operation to a smaller footprint and greater reliability, fanless industrial PCs deliver superior performance for a broad range of industrial operations.

As a leading provider of rugged and industrial computer solutions, Comark provides a family of industrial PCs with fanless operation to power mission-critical automation and control applications in a wide variety of industries.

Why choose an industrial PC with fanless operation?

An industrial PC is a rugged computer that is designed to provide reliable operation in the harsh and hazardous conditions of industrial environments. A fanless industrial PC uses lower-powered components that radiate less heat, and alternative methods to cool the components within a PC. Benefits of an industrial PC with fanless operation include:

  • Quieter operation. Most of the noise generated by an industrial PC comes from its fans. A fanless industrial PC provides near silent operation for applications in workspaces where noise should be minimized.
  • Smaller size. Because fan systems require a significant amount of space, a fanless computer can be designed with a smaller form factor that offers greater flexibility when integrating computing power into industrial workspaces.
  • Greater energy efficiency. The heatsinks which cool industrial fanless PCs are far more energy-efficient than fans.
  • Improved reliability. Because fanless computers have fewer moving parts and make it easier to keep dust and moisture out, these devices offer more reliable performance and greater durability.
