Benefits of a Fanless PC

Benefits of Fanless Computers

 

With durable, fanless construction, most of our Mini Rugged PCs provide quiet and reliable operation. Fanless computers are ideal for critical care environments, hospitals, nurseries, or anywhere that noise is a consideration. The primary function of a fan in a computer system is to cool down the internal components and prevent overheating. Fanless computers use alternative cooling methods and lower-powered components that give off less heat. The result, is computers that are silent and energy efficient. Most fanless computers are typically more compact like Mini PCs. In business settings, these qualities are often highly valued. Fanless computers can promote dust free environments, because without the presence of a fan there is no opportunity for dust to be collected and further distributed throughout the environment th. This quality is also beneficial in hospitals as it helps prevent the spread of airborne particles. Fanless computers are ideal for chip manufacturing facilities as they can help meet minimum requirements of dust per air ratios.

Silent Operation

The loudest part of a computer is typically the fan. When fans are removed and solid state hard drives are added, up to 99% of the audible noise is eliminated, Components such as solid state hard drives have no moving parts; making them inherently silent and reliable – the perfect partner for a fanless computer. A silent operating fanless computer is beneficial in a wide range of applications: libraries, laboratories. operating rooms, recording studios,  or other environments where sound (or the limitation of sound) is critical.

Small Size

Many fanless computers are often designed to be compact. Without a fan, the need for air around components used for cooling is unnecessary. As such, the internal parts of the computer can be placed closely together without overheating. The small size of fanless computers allow them to be mounted in compact spaces making them ideal for offices. They are capable of fitting underneath desks and tables. When size is a consideration, a fanless computer can be an excellent choice.

 

Energy Efficient

A fanless computer is often built with energy efficiency in mind. No fans mean the computer components must waste little power and generate minimal heat. Therefore, fanless computers use less power and reduce energy cost. For businesses running a large number of computers simultaneously, fanless computers result in significant savings.

 

Reliability

Some Tangent fanless computers are compact and offer a sealed chassis making them more robust. Many fanless computers are rated for shock and vibrations making them suitable for in-vehicle applications. Fanless computers are often designed to withstand extreme temperatures or exposure to different elements. Fanless computers are not threatened by dust and moisture the way classic computers are. This equates to less maintenance and longer lasting durability. With fewer moving parts and internal connections the margin for malfunction is virtually eliminated in many applications including harsh environments.

All About Thin Clients 

 

A thin client is a lightweight hardware created for VDI- virtual desktop infrastructure solutions. Instead of storing data on a PC, a thin client enables storage of data on a data center or server.

 

Benefits of a Thin Client:

 

A thin client allows for easy deployment and management. It is inexpensive and saves energy and space. Thin clients enable IT department professionals to troubleshoot end -points support end users in one centralized location, at times even offsite.  

 

Tangent Thin Clients:

 

Tangent currently offers three Thin Clients, the Z600, Z400 and Thin Client 160.

z600

Z600 Thin Client

This thin client comes is an HD 1080P monitor. It’s low wattage CPU saves energy and reduces consumption without sacrificing performance. Fanless in design, the Z600 thin client is silent. It comes complete with a Texas Instruments DM8148 1GHz Processor and supports Citrix ICA/HDX, VMWare View remote access protocols.

z400

Z400 Thin Client

Smaller than a pencil, low in cost and lightweight in design, this energy efficient thin client is an excellent option. The Z400 comes with dual monitor support, and High-performance TI ARM CPU at 1GHz.

tc160

 

Thin Client 160

Thin Client 160 features the integration of the powerful and energy efficient VIA 1GHz x86 processor into a compact and robust enclosure. Thin Client 160 provides a DVI (digital video interface) port and a VGA adapter for optimal display experience, and has an optional miniPCI adapter for internal wireless. With options for wireless networking and VESA-compliant mounting, Thin Client 160 is perfect for cable-free and space-saving applications. With durable, fanless construction, Thin Client 160 provides quiet and reliable operation and extended operating life, lowering the total cost of ownership.
