MXE-1500: Fanless, max performance, min space

Due to their compact size and failure-safe cooling technology, fanless Box PCs are used in a wide range of applications. High performance is often required within the tightest of spaces. The new extremely compact Box PC MXE-1500 series from Adlink provides a large number of interfaces, three independent display outputs and the space for a 2.5 inch SATA hard drive. With these features, the MXE-1500 is recommended as a basis for industrial automation, machine control or image processing applications.

As a further development of the successful MXE-1300 series, the new MXE-1500 offers even more interfaces and greater flexibility in the same, really compact casing. All the series models are based on the Celeron Quad Core N3160 model up to 2.24 GHz or the Dual Core N3060 up to 2.48 GHz. The Box Pcs are fanless and can be operated with an integrated SSD or CFast memory card at an ambient temperature between -20 and +70 °C. Their interface equipment is abundant, also offering 3 × gigabit Ethernet, 6 serial interfaces or 4 serial interfaces and a display port, 2 × USB 3.0, 5 × USB 2.0 (of which 1 × internal), respectively 4 digital inputs and outputs, 1 × mini PCIe and an USIM slot for mobile communication. Microphone input and line output with an optional 2 x 2W (8 ohm) amplifier round off the options for use with imaging applications.

The dimensions of the casing are 210 × 170 × 53 mm and it weighs 1.5 kg. The mounting bracket supplied enables fast wall installation. The compact casing can be equipped up to 2 TB with a 2.5 inch (SSD/HDD) hard drive. With this, sufficient local memory is available, also for operations with high data volumes, for example in image processing. The working memory can be extended up to 8 GB with energy-saving DDR3L memory chips.

The manufacturer Adlink places special emphasis on security. Therefore, TPM 2.0 (optional), WDC (watchdog counters) and the SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent) technology developed by Adlink are integrated in Version 3.5 as security features.

With the comprehensive I/O options and support from 2.5 inch hard drives, the MXE-1500 compact industry PC series provides an ideal and user-orientated platform for monitoring tasks, transport and industrial automation.

The compact devices are prepared for top hat rail or VEAS-100 wall bracket assembly. The operating systems Win10 IoT Enterprise CBB, Windows 7 Pro / WES7, Linux and, upon request, QNX are supported.

The Adlink products are available from the Official Sales Partner Acceed ( in Germany. The company focuses on the industrial Ethernet, embedded systems, storage components and customised IPCs for the fields of automation, facility management, logistics, machine vision, research and development.
