The model is ideally equipped for current and coming demands thanks to an update to Intel's high-performance Haswell platform while being flexibly extendable. The extremely energy-efficient Haswell architecture also allows the spo-book RUGGED HM87 excellent passive cooling of the integrated Intel core i3 processor. This is manufactured in the 22nm process and therefore offers a higher degree of efficiency for similarly high performance compared with direct predecessors. The passive cooling also avoids the use of moving parts within the stable metal housing of the spo-book RUGGED HM87.
As great care was taken during the design and development to ensure as small a construction size as possible, the spo-book RUGGED HM87 is a very compact industrial PC. The just four-centimetre-high device can therefore be transported quickly to its destination point and to fit it there, even under difficult conditions. Thanks to the freely selectable size of the working memory right through to eight gigabytes, this model of the RUGGED series is also very easy to adapt to your own requirements, which is also true of the hard drive, as there either a classic, magnetic working version or a modern SSD hard-drive can be used, which is able to drastically accelerate any type of file operations.
