Fanless panel PCs for industry, chemistry and medical technology
Fanless Panel PCs are often used in production control centers in industry. They are offered as multifunctional computers with powerful components from Alptech. An industrial PC without a fan is no less powerful than conventional IPCs. State-of-the-art CPUs can be installed, which also work in an energy-efficient and energy-saving manner.
The possibility of manufacturing the industrial PC without a fan also opens up further possible uses. In this way, the devices can be installed particularly in work environments in which no additional noise may be present. Fanless Panel PCs work without operating noise and can therefore also be used universally for chemistry and medical technology.
A PC without a fan works silently
A fanless PC also gives you advantages if it is used in a sensitive environment such as a hospital: The fan screw does not start constantly and then spreads operating noises that people with increased need for rest find annoying and in laboratories even measurement results can influence.
How a fanless PC still stays cool
A PC without a fan usually adopts the principle of so-called passive cooling. Essential parts of the housing take on the task of radiating excessive heat from the inside of the IPC to the outside. The most important feature is that they have a surface that is as large as possible – an aspect that is common with the mostly very handy Industrial PCs cannot be realized without a trick: In order to gain the largest possible radiation area, the housings are often designed like an accordion.
A large number of Alptech’s IPCs are designed from the start as a fanless PC. If you have any questions about the functionality or equipment of the individual models, please feel free to contact us and take advantage of our advisory services.
