QBO-1000 Series Expandable Industrial Box PC

Quanmax is pleased to announce the launch of a new industrial-grade box PC, named QBO-1000 Series, specifically designed to satisfy demands for high-performance and expandable computing platform.

Stunning 3D Graphics and 4K Video Performance

Powered by 6th / 7th Generation Intel® Skylake / Kaby Lake S Series desktop processors, QBO-1000 Series can deliver stunning 3D graphics and 4K video content. Especially, Kaby Lake models boast a double-digital 4K video performance increase. Thus, this series is suitable for video and graphics intensive industrial applications, such as image-based automatic inspection / analysis, process control and robot guidance.

Flexible Expansion

In addition to 2 serial ports for connection with sensors and actuators deployed within the automated systems, QBO-1000 Series has two PCIex8 add-on card slots accessible on the rear panel for flexible and easy expansion for specific applications. For example, robotics and CNC machine tools use a motion control module to control intelligent drives and synchronize axes; automated optical inspection needs a video inspection module to extract defect images; process control and transportation need an additional graphics card to deliver smooth high-definition content across multiple screens; network redundancy can be accomplished by adding a network interface card.

Fanless and Ventless Architecture

Both fanless and ventless are important criteria in some industrial applications because many industrial environments are generally exposed to dust or other airborne particles. Dust falling and caking on fans or sensitive components will lead to poor heat dissipation and overheating is a silent killer to the system. Built under fanless and ventless architecture with passive cooling heat sinks on the chassis, QBO-1000 Series is ideal to use in hazardous environments with potential dust ingress.


Below summarizes the features and specifications of QBO-1000 Series.
