The AIE-PX11/12/21/22 series, a range of fanless Edge AI box PCs from Aetina, is obtainable from Impulse Embedded. Fanless embedded box PCs are characterised by the absence of a cooling fan, a component typically found in standard PCs. Instead, these devices rely on passive cooling methods such as heat sinks or heat spreaders to dissipate heat the internal components develop. This design choice enhances reliability by eradicating a potential point of failure and for applications, including medical devices requiring low acoustic noise output. Fanless cooling also reduces maintenance needs and minimises the risk of dust and debris entering the system.

The series perfectly exemplifies this ruggedised technology that combines a robustly designed device with quiet, powerful performance. PCs from the series are equipped with a powerful NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin SoM, providing the core components of the embedded processing system, including memory blocks and processor cores with low latency. This SoM provides an impressive AI performance of up to 275 tera operations per second, and the box PC is constructed with 2/4 IEEE 802.3af Gigabit Ethernet PoE ports, enabling seamless integration of PoE cameras without requiring extra power sources.

Embedded PCs like this series are renowned for their excellent durability and reliability. Engineered to withstand harsh environmental conditions, wide temperature ranges and prolonged usage, they are constructed with industrial-grade components and ruggedised enclosures. These industrial PCs are subjected to rigorous testing before distribution to ensure they meet stringent standards for shock resistance and humidity tolerance.

Fanless embedded box PCs have applications in various industries, including manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, robotics, and more. They are ideal for scenarios where reliability, durability, and silent operation are critical, and standard desktop computers would be impractical.

The company tests all embedded box PCs before shipment. With extensive experience in industrial computing and the supply of robust, reliable solutions, it is a trusted partner for any business seeking high-performance computing solutions for industrial environments.

The company provides lifelong technical support for all their embedded systems and PCs, ensuring complete peace of mind with the knowledge that all purchases come with reliable and long-lasting aftercare.
