Intel® NUC 8 Rugged is a PC kit that’s small on size but not on toughness or reliability. It features a fanless, ventless design to minimize particle intrusion, so it’s built to survive environments most PCs can’t—from a busy factory floor to a dusty warehouse. And even without a fan, it can operate in temperatures from 0-40˚C to thrive in severe in-the-field conditions.

Housed in a small chassis that’s slim enough to fit almost anywhere, the NUC 8 Rugged is also available as a board-only option that can be easily integrated into your own digital solutions. It’s powered by an Intel® Celeron® processor, making it the ideal PC solution to keep edge analytics, digital signage, or surveillance cameras up and running around the clock. And with a 3-year warranty, it’s performance that’s designed to last.
