Product Overview

The CS86-BOX is a rugged, high-quality mountable multifunctional industrial PC without a display. Thanks to the integrated brackets and its light-weight construction, it can be firmly attached to any flat surface, such as industrial cabinets or walls.

CS86-BOX is powered by the high-performance Intel® Core™ i7 10510U quad-core (8 threads) CPU, but it can be scaled down to i5 10210U or Celeron® 3865U, depending on application requirements. The CS86-BOX Industrial Panel PC also features a broad range of connectivity options, allowing it to meet even the most demanding requirements in harsh industrial or outdoor environments.

Despite their cutting-edge performances, the offered CPUs consume very little power: their TDP is only 15W at respective base clock frequencies. From the ground-up, these CPUs are built for low power consumption. As such, they are 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 fan-less design reduces noise, as well as the maintenance costs and efforts, increasing 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 Industrial Panel PC can be powered by a wide range of input voltages: from 12V to 24V DC. The power input connector is a 2-pin, 3.81mm screw terminal (Figure 1). The polarity of the power connector is clearly labeled on the housing itself: the ‘+’ sign is the positive, while the ‘-’ sign is the negative power supply input.


Figure 793: Figure 1: Power Input Section

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

The power input section of CS86-BOX features a range of protection features, including over-current, over-voltage, power surge, and reverse polarity protection, allowing it to meet stringent industrial safety regulations.

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 industrial PC. It has 4 x USB Type A connectors configured as HOSTS, 1 x HDMI port, 2 x RJ45 connectors supporting Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), and 2 x RS232 connectors that can be configured in RS485 mode as per request.

RS232/485 Connectors

Product has 2 x 9-pin D-Sub connectors (Figure 2) which are configured as RS232 interfaces by default. The two 9-pin D-sub connectors labeled COM1 and COM2 can be configured as either RS232 or RS485 communication interfaces. If different configuration is required, please get in touch with Chipsee technical support at service@chipsee.com

USB HOST Connectors

CS86-BOX is equipped with 4 x USB 3.0 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 796: Figure 3: 4 x USB 3.0 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.

Use CAT5 or better cables to achieve full data throughput over maximum distance defined by the 1000BASE-T standard (100m).

HDMI Connector

Although not equipped with the screen on its own, the The CS86-BOX Industrial Panel PC features 1 x HDMI connector. The HDMI connector (Figure 5) allows connecting an external monitor. HDMI output resolution can be configured by the software or the OS.
