Aleutia is one of the few companies focusing on fanless and rugged PCs suited for industrial purposes. They started off in 2007 with an intent to serve the social enterprise computing market. Their initial customers were government and non-profit organizations with requirements for low-cost, yet rugged and power-efficient computers. Since then, they have expanded their customer base to include organizations such as Al-Jazeera, Schlumburger etc. Aleutia PCs are guaranteed to operate reliably even in remote, hot, and dusty environments. All PCs are built to order in London, UK.

Aleutia officially launched the Ivy Bridge-based Relia fanless industrial PCs late last week. Based on the Q77 Express chipset, members of the Relia lineup can be used as fanless Industrial PCs or dual LAN servers. They have no moving parts, and are ideal for HTPC, digital signage and other custom computing applications where low power and fanless operation are desired characteristics. Aleutia claims that the lineup consumes less than 17W when idle and around 55W under full load. As is the case with most fanless PCs, the chassis itself acts as a giant heat sink. The chassis is an exclusive design for Aleutia from Streacom (through Wesena), whose designs we had covered earlier.

The various configuration options for the different components are provided in the table below.

    It seems the company could make some extra money selling cables with an allan-screw to hold cables tightly against the case (which would need only some small holes). I hadn't even thought of the issue until you brought it up. For industrial PCs, it is a great point. Reply

    It's HDMI and DP, not DVI and DP. Reply

    You're right. I was thinking HDMI but my hands weren't typing the right letters. ;) Reply

    Just looking at it, two concerns com to mind.

    First, it's not a sealed unit, so this can't be used in areas with high humidity and other airborn goodies.

    Second, it's painted black. A black, fanless PC seeing any direct sunlight is going to roast.

    Something like this would be great for POS, but we've got both high humidity and plenty of sunlight.

    Yes, sealed is important in many applications. I don't mean submerge it in water sealed but just prevent dust and most vapor from entering sealed. In my application dust is a huge issue. The dust has micro particles of metal mixed with oils. It will gum up any fan or open vent real fast. I think this much processing power is way overkill for any of our applications anyway. Reply
