AIR-300 - Intel Xeon E3/7th/6th Gen. Core i7/5/3 GPU Inference System with Single NVIDIA 260W GPU Card support, eight USB3.0 and four Serial Ports.

PCI Express

PCI Express, officially abbreviated as PCIe or PCI-e, is a high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard, designed to replace the older PCI, PCI-X and AGP bus standards.


Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is an international standard for a secure cryptoprocessor, a dedicated microcontroller designed to secure hardware through integrated cryptographic keys.


A hot swap is the replacement of a hard drive, CD-ROM drive, power supply, or other device with a similar device while the computer system using it remains in operation. The replacement can be because of a device failure or, for storage devices, to substitute other data.


WISE-PaaS (Platform as a Service) stands between the domain-specific cloud and IoT devices, providing a modular operating environment for system integrators. Not only does it provide seamless sensor information transmission and remote management control, its open RESTful API/SDK protocols establish standard connection and communication between all the sub-systems. The integrated IoT software and cloud platform plays a key role in the development of IoT applications, analysis of IoT big data, the continued optimization of work flow and future expandability of the system.


CE is a mandatory standard for products on the market in the European Economic Area. By CE marking a product, the manufacturer ensures that the item meets the essential safety requirements set out in the applicable CE directive.


These products use heatsink, heatpipe and extrusion technology to dissipate the heat generated by the system rather than using traditional fans thus improving system reliability and longevity.

FCC Approved

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent agency of the United States government that sets standards and governs the testing of conducted and radiated emissions such as EMI.


This product fully adheres to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC, RoHS for short.  The directive covers the restriction of use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment and was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union.

Wide Voltage

These devices and systems have been designed to accept a wide voltage DC power input. This feature is desirable in the industrial market where a fixed voltage level or mains AC power cannot be guaranteed.


Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is an independent product safety certification organisation based in the United States. UL develops standards for products, materials, components, assemblies, tool and equipment, mainly dealing with product safety.


This system features USB3 ports for fast communication to peripheral devices.


Intel vPro is a brand name for a set of PC hardware features. PCs that support vPro have a vPro-enabled processor, a vPro-enabled chipset, and a vPro-enabled BIOS as their main elements.

Windows 10

This system can be supplied with Windows 10 configured to your specification, including disk partitioning, driver and software installations, along with Windows feature setup and application-specific configuration.
