Industrial PC for Digital Signage with Nvidia graphics card
For everyone that needs a high graphics power but also don’t want to miss the advantages of a fanless Mini-PC, the spo-book NOVA Q170 is definitely the right choice. Thanks to the integrated PCI express slot the industrial PC can be expanded by an Nvidia Quadro P2000. This is just one of the reasons how we created completely new application possibilities with the NOVA Q170.
With its DVI port and the two DisplayPort interfaces three displays can be controlled with different content at the same time (see also “VGA; DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI – what’s the difference between these multimedia interfaces?”). Using the two DisplayPorts a maximum resolution of twice 4K – i.e. 3840 x 2160 @60Hz – is possible. With an optional dedicated graphics card even more displays can be controlled. Choosing the Nvidia Quadro P2000 as graphics card would enable six times 4K in total.
NOVA Q170 as a server PC
With its dimensions of 143 x 226 x 217 mm the latest member of the NOVA series can no longer be called a cube. This is due to the lower amount of slots as on the NOVA CUBE Q87. The NOVA Q170 is therefore a bit slimmer than its predecessor. Nevertheless the spo-book provides enough space for providing a x16 PCI express extension card. Due to such a card graphics cards or even network cards can be connected. Up to two 2,5” hard disks, no matter if it is an HDD or SSD (see also “What is the difference between HDD or SSD?”), can be installed into the industrial PC and be connected to a RAID if more security is needed. The CPU is also supported by a 32 GB high RAM.
Internal USB port with security key
The NOVA Q170 provides a lot of different interfaces. Next to the video outputs DisplayPort and DVI, there are also two LAN and five COM ports available. The front of the industrial PC offers six USB 3.0 ports and the back two USB 2.0 ports. The third USB 2.0 port is placed on the inside of the Mini-PC and has an integrated security key with which, for instance, internal backups can be created.
