Tough but Stealthy

At just 8.7 x 6.8 x 3.0 inches, this rugged embedded controller can be deployed in the most restrictive spaces and the quiet fanless design guards against intrusion of airborne contaminants. Built to withstand Shock and Stochastic vibration per IEC standards. A wide -25 – 70°C operating temperature, at 100% load, provides flexibility when considering placement in extreme environments. This exceptional thermal performance is achieved through an innovative thermal transfer system that conducts heat 10x better than traditional fanless designs. The Neousys thermal pad liquefies when heated by the CPU while springs push the CPU closer to the chassis heatsink for optimal heat transfer.

Performance and Longevity

Besides being the most compact controller supporting Skylake LGA1151 socket CPUs (i5/i7), the Nuvo-5501 enjoys, @35W, a 46% reduction in CPU generated heat over the previous Broadwell platform. The DDR4-2133 memory, @1.2v, uses up to 40% less power than its DDR3 predecessor and has a 33% faster data transfer rate. By eliminating the fan, longevity is increased; one less moving part to fail. Product model Life Cycle is extended through use of an embedded CPU and chipset ensuring long term model availability for your project. Product model changes are curbed or eliminated over time to keep recurring project costs to a minimum.

Rich I/O

In its compact enclosure, Nuvo-5501 features rich, front-accessible I/O including 3x GbE, 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0, and 4x COM ports. There is even enough room for a 3.5” or 2.5” HDD and a full-size mSATA socket. Optional 8-CH isolated DI and 8-CH isolated DO provides a versatile interface for automation tasks. On/Off remote control. VGA and DVI-D. The compact Nuvo-5501 is a rugged, long life cycle, cost-effective solution that does not compromise on performance and reliability, making it the ideal value based embedded controller for various industrial applications.
