open ideas GmbH and the spo-book WINDBOX II QUAD – Experience flexibility in a new way

The munich startup-company open ideas GmbH brings not only open but also new ideas in the e-commerce sector, since 2013. The young and dynamic team offers software and electronic development from a single source and sets with its own project “emmasbox” new standards for click & collect.

Task

Friday afternoon. It’s closing time. Hello long-awaited weekend. A feeling of hunger slowly begins to spread. The empty refrigerator is waiting for you at home. So get in the rush hour just to make it to the crowded discounter. You then queue up for the unfriendly cashier only to pay your shopping cart which you had to gather in too small aisles. There is no way to handle this easier? There is!

The smart solution regarding your purchase: emmasbox!

The cooled collection station from open ideas GmbH grants, according to the maxim “Online  food. Offline collection.”, a new feeling for your purchase. No opening hours you have to go by. No queuing up for paying your shopping cart. Comfortable, easy and 24 hours a day accessible!

The flexible and reliable around-the-clock-service emmasbox needs an at least as reliable as robust Embedded-PC in order to keep your online purchase ready for collection, also in bad weather.

Solution

Due to the specified requirements there is no getting away from the fanless Mini-PC spo-book WINDBOX II Quad. The flat IPC, equipped with four processor cores, does not only provide a smooth management of the boxes as well as a smooth control of the, in emmasboxes integrated Touch-Displays. It additionally synchronizes, via external servers, all the necessary data you need in order to store and to pick up your shopping card.

The spo-book WINDBOX II Quad impresses, in addition to its high performance, by a particularly  low energy consumption.

Result

In the future you can, thanks to the fruitfully collaboration of open ideas and spo-comm, decide for yourself when and from where you want to bring your purchase to your home.

The hardware offers state-of-the-art technology, for instance the USB 3.0 connections, the eight GB working memory, or the powerful processor that runs with only 10 watt energy.

The system is cooled passively, protected by a robust metal housing, and thanks to its very thin construction, customers can integrate it in the environment unobtrusively. And they have even more choices in respect to the software available as the WINDBOX II Quad is aligned with all Windows operating systems from version 7 on, no matter if 32 or 64 bit.

spo-book WINDBOX II Quad: All good things come in fours

Never change a winning team: And true to this maxim, the mini pc forge provides – together with MSI IPC – the meanwhile fourth generation of the WINDBOX II series (MS-9A65) on the market which one is highly presentable. With at least four processor cores, the new model is a first division player with respect to performance capability and convinces with a contemporary equipment that leaves nothing to be desired.
22 May 2018 Array ( [id] => 330 [title] => NEW: spo-book WINDBOX III EVO – Configuration diversity for every application field [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => Together with the Taiwanese partner MSI IPC the spo-comm developed a new Mini-PC from the well-known WINDBOX series. We present to you: The WINDBOX III EVO. With the already existing quality of the WINDBOX series that stands for a versatile application scenario, its reliability and an unbeatable price, the new model of this line convinces us, too. [description] =>

As well as the predecessor models, the WINDBOX III EVO has the measurements 300 x 196 x 30 mm and can still be mounted behind monitors or under office desks by help of the standard VESA-mountings (see also “What is VESA?”). It also has the same weight as the older models which makes it really easy to integrate the PC into already existing systems.

Improved performance and consistent WINDBOX features

Our new spo-book WINDBOX III EVO is equipped with a seventh generation Intel Core i5 processor that works with up to 3,1 Gigahertz and is supported by a RAM where you can choose up to 32GB. Thereby demanding multi monitoring is possible but also single running applications can use the CPU performance perfectly. The main feature of the WINDBOX is still the passive cooling system: Absolute silent working in places where this is totally necessary is no problem. With the wide range temperature from -10° Celsius to 50° Celsius and the completely closed metal housing, through which dust and dirt can’t reach the interior, this Mini-PC can be used for applications with difficult conditions. The high quality of the components makes sure the Embedded-PC can be used 24/7.

Interface diversity for every application field

With the large amount of video outputs the WINDBOX III EVO conquers the Digital Signage field in a new way: One DVI- and two DisplayPort-interfaces can control up to three monitors at the same time – no matter if you want to play the same or different content (see also “VGA, DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI – what’s the difference between these multimedia interfaces?”). The high claims of this application field are for sure fulfilled by this Embedded-PC: Without any delays 4K-content can be played. The standard of 1080p in the Digital-Signage field is also removed by this.

The high variety of interfaces guarantees that the WINDBOX III EVO can work together with already existing configurations. Due to two Gigabit-LAN-interfaces and an optional WiFi and Bluetooth network connections can be made, but also wireless data transfer is possible.

Equipped with 6 USB ports – four of them after the latest 3.0 standard – the Mini-PC can be connected to numerous systems and external storage media. By choosing your desired configuration the WINDBOX III EVO can be adapted to every application scenario.

No Windows 7 support

As of now, Intel and Microsoft do not longer provide a driver support for Kabylake-CPUs with Windows 7. For our customers this means that in the future we only offer support for Windows 10.

With immediate effect you can configure, test and buy our new WINDBOX III EVO on our website.
