    Can I use Intel NUC in industry?

    light123

      I want to use Intel NUC(NUC7i3BNH) on a mobile car which is used for transferring things in warehouse.

      But I am not sure whether is it possible.

      1. Shaking

      When the car is moving, the NUC may be shaking. So can the NUC work normally in this situation for a long time?

       

      2. Temperature

      The temperature of warehouse may be -10℃. Can the NUC work normally in this temperature?

       

      3. Other

       

      Thanks a lot

          From its TPS document, here are the environmental requirements for the latest generation (BN) NUC:

                  

          In addition to this, the NUC chassis are an open chassis with blower-based forced airflow. In a factory setting, you are going to see significant dust and particulate matter. This can build up within the chassis, with eventual failure due to overheating being a significant issue. There are fanless chassis available through third-parties that are sealed against this situation and I strongly suggest that you look into this possibility...

            Hello light123,

             

            Thank you for joining the Intel® NUC community.

             

            I will respond to your questions in the same order you presented them;

             

            1. Yes, it is possible and I would like to share a couple of recommendations in case you decide to use the Intel® NUC; consider a M.2 solution and try to set the Intel® NUC around some kind of shock absorber or something that it will hold the Intel® NUC closely firmed.
            2. Based on the environmental specifications the Intel® NUC can be set under these parameters;

              

             

            Leaving the Intel® NUC Kit working under -10℃ might end up damaging the components and the board itself.

             

            Hope this helps you, and if you have more questions please let us know.

             

            Regards,

            Amy C.
