Fanless design and optimized cooling

Mini PC PL64 employs a new, almost-silent fanless design that minimizes dust ingress into the chassis to prolong product life. The fanless design and 15-watt CPU support make PL64 ideal for industrial applications where reliability, durability, and low noise are paramount.

The cooling system in PL64 efficiently dissipates heat, enabling this mini PC to be deployed in hot environments reaching 50°C.

EDID emulation and virtual display

Mini PC PL64 features Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) emulation and retains signage format so content being displayed remains unaffected even in the event of a temporary loss of power or connectivity issues, making it ideal for digital signage. PL64 can also create virtual screens without a connected display. Virtual Display technology provides access to the system via a remote desktop, without affecting content that’s currently being displayed, allowing an administrator to manage the system offsite.

4K resolution and triple display support

Mini PC PL64 can be specified with Intel Iris® Xe graphics (for i5/i7) or Intel UHD Graphics (for i3/Celeron®) to display videos and images in stunning 4K at a smooth 60 Hz. Additionally, PL64 can support up to three 4K displays via HDMI, so it’s perfect for digital signage, billboard, and advertising applications.

Dual LAN and COM ports

Two LAN ports enable users to divide networks and provide network redundancy. One of the ports supports 2.5GBase-T (2.5 G) networking technology for speeds of 2.5 Gbps for swift online performance. Dual COM ports support legacy devices like barcode scanners or receipt printers. These ports are compatible with the RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 standards for wide-ranging versatility.

WiFi 6E support

Mini PC PL64 can support WiFi 6E thanks to an optional built-in module that enables smooth streaming of high-resolution videos, fewer dropped connections, and fast wireless performance in dense environments, even when Mini PC PL64 is far from the router. In addition, the module provides Mini PC PL64 with an extra high-speed 160 MHz channel.

Compact, wall-mountable chassis

The 0.81-liter chassis of Mini PC PL64 measures just 199.7 x 119.7 x 33.9 mm, allowing it to fit in tight spaces or setups for digital signage or kiosks PL64 is compatible with VESA and wall mounts for versatile mounting options. The durable metal construction of PL64 also makes it ideal for indoor industrial use in kiosks, digital signage, vending machines, surveillance, factory automation, and others.
