OnLogic Helix 500 review

"OnLogic announced the Helix 500 series towards the end of last year as their newest industrial edge computer that is now powered by Intel Comet Lake processors. (If looking for similar AMD-based fanless computing options, OnLogic also offers the ML100G-40 with Ryzen R1505G or V1605B options at this time.) This fanless computer sports dual Gigabit Ethernet adapters, can drive three DisplayPort displays concurrently from the Intel graphics, can be configured with a range of WiFi or cellular wireless connectivity options, and other customizations like a TPM 2.0 module or COM port depending upon your particular use-case.

This fanless, mini PC with Intel 10th Gen Core processors can also be fitted with up to 64GB of RAM and dual SSDs. The Helix 500 is rated to operate from 0 to 50 degrees Celsius operating temperature. OnLogic's wonderful aluminum chassis and excellent construction is what we have come to appreciate well from the brand with our past testing of the Karbon 700 and the smaller Karbon 300 -- both of which devices continue to undergo plenty of benchmarking load in our lab and continue operating without fault.

Overall the OnLogic Helix 500 is a very capable fanless mini computer that can be either used as a premium desktop PC or within an industrial setting for edge/IoT use-cases and other similar harsh environments. The Helix 0~50 degrees operating temperature range, EMC compliance testing, engineered for 24/7 usage, and sports a wealth of connectivity options along with other configurable components ranging from a Celeron CPU through Core i9 Comet Lake processors and up to dual SSDs and 64GB of RAM."
