Rackmountable Industrial-Grade Chassis & Dust Filter

The KCO Series utilizes a standardized rackmount design with multiple mounting points for a versatile rackmount installation in industrial spaces. Enclosed with an industrial-grade hardened chassis, the KCO protects its vital internal components and enhances rugged reliability. A user-friendly external dust filter is included in the KCO’s ventilation to minimize the amount of dust entering the system and be quickly replaced/cleaned.

Expansion via PCIe Gen 3

The KCO Series comes with PCIe Gen 3 Slots allowing system integrators to add a low-profile add-in card into the systems. The KCO-2000 comes with 1x PCIe x16, and the KCO-3000 has 1x PCIe x16 and 2x PCIe x4 slots for further additional add-in cards.

NVIDIA RTX A2000 12GB for Edge AI Workloads

The NVIDIA RTX A2000 12GB accelerates machine learning performance in a low-profile design that fits perfectly into the KCO-2000-CFL chassis. A dedicated GPU is necessary to streamline data-intensive applications from AI inference and enable real-time data analysis for edge workloads.

  • Only 70W TDP
  • Dual-Slot Low-Profile (2.7” H x 6.6” L) PCIe 4.0 x16
  • 3328 Nvidia Ampere Architecture CUDA Cores
  • 12GB GDDR6 Memory with ECC Support
  • Designed for Edge AI workloads

Hardware Security With TPM 2.0

TPM 2.0 is a hardware-based security platform that encrypts the computer’s assets and ensures a tamper-proof boot. This additional level of data security deters malicious attacks, such as unauthorized firmware and software modifications, and upgrades overall system security.


An industrial computer is a specific type of computing system engineered to manage a variety of factory and industrial workloads for machine automation, manufacturing equipment and new-age autonomous robotics.

COTS, or Commercial Off the Shelf, assists system builders and OEM designers accelerate time-to-market through sub-assembly computers that are easily implemented into system-level configurations.
By design, the KCO series is not fanless. The KCO series contains cooling fans within the system that are controlled by BIOS and sensors to allow them to run at slow speeds and low noise. A user-friendly external dust filter allows for additional protection and easy maintenance for replacement or cleaning.
The KCO is a fanned industrial PC whereas our RCO series is a fanless, cable-less solution that uses an extruded aluminum finned chassis that acts as a heatsink. The KCO’s chassis is built with heavy duty metals that maintain practicality and ease of use, allowing for an industrial-grade enclosure that houses a standard micro-ATX motherboard. Both the KCO and RCO series offer reliability and embedded longevity with extended lifecycles.
The KCO series is optimized with industrial-grade components for embedded longevity and conforms to mission-critical safety regulations from the FCC, CE, and UL to perform reliably in mission critical settings.
