State of the Art
mini fanless Design
for Fog Computing
& Industry 4.0

The hardware and housing of Data.Hunter are designed together from the ground-up to minimize size and maximize capabilities, durability and thermal performance.

The goal of fogging is to improve efficiency and reduce the amount of data transported to the cloud for processing, analysis and storage. This is done to improve efficiency and performance, though it may also be used for security and compliance reasons.

Made for real world IoT design challenges

Data.Hunter is one of the smallest full-featured PCs on the market and is designed as a metal 3D jigsaw puzzle with interlocking parts, making it very easy to install or expand:

  • RAM (from 2GB to 16GB).
  • M.2 SATA Storage (from 32GB to 250GB).
  • Extension cards (4G, PoE, 2,5" HDD, Eth, USB).


  • The housing measures only:
  • 112 mm by 84 mm & 34 mm thick.





  • Surprisingly capable for its size

    System

    Data.Hunter is based on quad-core Apollo-Lake Atom.

    It provides performance that not long ago required a Core CPU that could not be fitted in such a small passively-cooled footprint due to higher power consumption.

    Storage

    Data.Hunter supports the following main storage devices:

  • M.2 SATA provides high performance and large storage capacity.
  • 2.5″ HDD/SSD is for extra capacity and for intensive write operations like video recording and equires a special FACET card and raised bottom cover.


  • The storage device is attached using specially designed M.2 cooling plate that dissipates heat through the housing.




    Extensions

    Data.Hunter project is unique.
    A generic IoT Edge Server and/or Gateway can rarely meet all special requirements.

    That’s why Data.Hunter is made modular and these extra requirements are implemented with an extension module integrated seamlessly into the housing.

    This module is called FACET-Card and below the models available :

  • Extra Gbit Ethernet ports.
  • Extra USB ports.
  • 2.5″ HDD support.
  • 4G LTE modem in conjunction with WiFi.
  • Power-over-Ethernet device (PoE PD).
  • More FACET cards are under development.


  • Networking

    Versatile networking is a key requirement for an IoT hardware.

    Data.Hunter addresses this requirement with dual Gbit Ethernet ports (Intel I211) that can be extended to 4 ports and support for WiFi and 4G cellular modem working in conjunction.




    Warranty and longevity

    Two major considerations in an IoT project are reliability and longevity. Data.Hunter excels in both.
    The embedded grade fanless design practically eliminates aging which allows us to provide unconditional 5 year warranty on Data.Hunter.
    Data.Hunter availability is 15 years.
    This ensures you will not have to redo integration, software adaptation and certification soon after completing the first cycle.

    Built tough

    Data.Hunter is designed with the failproof fanless cooling experience and has been refining from over 10 years:

  • Make an all-metal housing that is thermally conductive, and design it for effective convection cooling.
  • Thermally couple the hot-spots (CPU, SSD) to the housing.
  • Use the housing as the heatsink.


  • The all-metal die-cast housing has excellent shock & vibration tolerance.
    This makes Data.Hunter suitable for automotive, railways and industrial applications.

    Mounting

    Data.Hunter is small enough to be easily and securely mounted in nearly any IoT scenario, for examples:

  • In a cabinet.
  • In a vehicle.
  • Inside a vending machine.
  • Or just mounted behind a display, on the wall or on a furniture.


  • Data.Hunter has the following mounting options:
    including VESA and DIN-rail mounting.

    Power supply

    Data.Hunter can work at wide input voltage range of 9V – 36V.
    It can also be powered by a PoE FACET Card or be powered through a custom FACET card. The DC-plug has a special twist-lock for preventing unintentional pull-out power loss.
    CleverMind provides auxiliary power solutions for Data.Hunter, including:

  • Uptime miniature UPS.
  • Medical grade PSU.
  • Pig-tail cable (Y-cable) with twist-lock DC plug.
