Barebone specialist Shuttle has officially launched the XC60J. The fanless industrial-grade minicomputer delivers top-notch peripheral connectivity for a multitude of applications. Setting kiosks, POS applications, vending machines and digital signage systems in motion should be no problem thanks to its eight built-in COM ports. Best of all, it’s budget-friendly.

Shuttle’s latest offering backs Intel’s Apollo Lake platform technology and packs a 14 nm Intel Celeron J3355 dual-core processor. It has support for 1.35 V DDR3L low-voltage memory with a maximum capacity up to 8 GB. That and the desktop’s Mini-ITX fanless design ensure quiet operation, decreased thermal energy production and reduced energy consumption.

The XC60J also has 4K Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160 resolution) and dual display support via HDMI and D-sub. Connectivity options are aplenty, including four USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports for flash drives, bar code readers, receipt printers and essential peripherals. Users get added flexibility with the built-in M.2 2280 Type M and M.2 2230 Type A expansion slots.

According to its maker, this all-new slim PC is 24/7-certified, VESA mountable and operable at -40 degrees centigrade environments. In order to diffuse hot temperatures all over the system quickly and evenly, the machine makes use of a thermal module with cooled heat pipe and sink. Being fanless allows it to be energy efficient and also noise-free when it comes to operational platform creation with SSDs.

“Standard PCs usually have one or two COM ports, and those that have more are generally really expensive,” said Shuttle Solutions Team manager Tosh Akhgar. “Shuttle’s XC60J’s low price, combined with its connectivity options, makes it a perfect choice for industrial integrators, especially those that work with legacy systems.”

The Shuttle XC60J slim PC is set for a July release. It starts at €320 in Europe, AU$329 in Australia and US$300 in North America. The barebone minicomputer comes with a three-year limited warranty.
