Version 1.0

Product Overview

The CS86-BOX-J1900 is a fanless embedded industrial PC with Intel® Celeron® J1900 quad-core (4 threads) to meet a variety of requirements in harsh environments. Thanks to the fanless design, it is stable and reliable in client terminal, multimedia and other industry applications. In addition, its support for 2 x LAN, 2 x COM, 3 x USB2.0, 1 x USB3.0 ports can interconnect devices easily.

The offered CPU consumes very little power: its TDP is only 10W at the base clock frequency. From the ground-up, the CPU is built for low power consumption. As such, it is best suited for mobile and power-constrained industrial or field applications.

A specially designed aluminum alloy housing with fins for increased heat dissipation serves as a passive cooler, eliminating the need for built-in fans. The fanless design reduces noise, as well as the maintenance costs and efforts, leading to increased reliability at the same time.


Be careful when handling the product while it is operating: it might become hot under heavy CPU load.

Power Input

The CS86-BOX-J1900 Industrial PC can be powered by 12V DC. The power input connector is a 5.5 x 2.5 mm DC connector (Figure 1).


Figure 907: Figure 1: Power Input Section

The POWER button (Figure 1a) is located to the opposite side of the power input connector and can be used to switch the power ON or OFF.

If the product is used to control key processes, it is highly recommended to use an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) to prevent critical data loss.


There are many connectivity options available on the CS86-BOX-J1900 industrial PC. It has 1 x USB3.0 and 3 x USB2.0 Type A connectors configured as HOSTS, 1 x HDMI port, 1 x VGA port, 2 x RJ45 connectors supporting 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet, 2 x RS232 connectors, 1 x audio in connector, 1 x audio out connector, 2 x SMA connectors(for Wi-Fi antenna).

RS232 Connectors

Product has 2 x 9-pin D-Sub connectors which are configured as RS232 interfaces by default. The two connectors are on two different sides: COM1 (Figure 2) and COM2 (Figure 2a).

Figure 910: Figure 2a: D-Sub (RS232) COM2

USB HOST Connectors

CS86-BOX-J1900 is equipped with 1 x USB 3.0 and 3 x USB 2.0 HOST connectors (Figure 3). Although fully compatible with USB 2.0 devices, the USB 3.0 interface provides 10 times more data transfer bandwidth than USB 2.0, making it best suited for fast peripherals that can utilize its full potential.


Figure 911: Figure 3: 1 x USB 3.0 and 3 x USB 2.0 HOST Connectors

LAN Connectors

2 x LAN (RJ45) connectors (Figure 4) provide Ethernet connectivity over standardized Ethernet cables. The integrated two-port Ethernet interface supports 10/100/1000BASE-T/TX specifications with automatic speed negotiation and Wake on LAN (WoL) functionality. Power over Ethernet (PoE) is not supported.
