The DS81 is a slim, but powerful barebone PC for Intel desktop processors for socket LGA1150. Besides its high build quality, the DS81 that barely measures 4.3 centimetres in height, also convinces with its system performance and versatility. Its stable and reliable operation make it ideal for use with professional applications such as POS, POI, gambling machines, office, healthcare and industry. Thanks to its robust metal chassis and a wide ambient temperature range from 0 to 50 degrees, the DS81 is an industry-grade signage platform perfectly suitable for permanent operation.


Support Intel® 4th generation Core™ processor

Backend Feature 68 201402171529 4897
The DS81 is equipped with Intel® H81 Express Chipset. The new LGA 1150 socket supports Intel® fourth-generation Core™ i3/i5/i7 65W Haswell processor. The system supports dual-channel DDR3 1600 memory with a maximum capacity up to 16GB. The CPU integrated Intel® HD graphics 4600 core* is compatible with DirectX11.1 to deliver significantly increased processing and graphics performance.

Slim design and Easy assembly

Backend Feature 68 201403120950 4898
The DS81 features a 1.3-liter slim design and body thickness of only 43mm, making it well-suited for diverse commercial applications. The DS81 has significantly less cables and no daughter board. This makes for easy assembly as well as enhanced thermal efficiency and system stability due to increased airflow.

Heat pipe cooling technology

Backend Feature 68 201402171635 4899
The DS81 features Shuttle’s exclusive heat pipe cooling module with smart fan design. The precise vent design allows for constant air circulation between the inside and outside of the machine, resulting in high stability and low noise for long-term operation. The DS81 adopts ball bearing fans for longer life span than traditional sleeve bearing fans.

Industrial Solid Capacitors = High Stability

Backend Feature 68 201402171530 4900
The DS81 uses industrial capacitors in order to meet the environmental operation demands of commercial applications. Its rugged design allows for 24/7 stable operation over long periods of time – even in 50⁰C environments*.

* With use of SSD and Wide Range Temp. SODIMM

Support 4K Ultra HD

Backend Feature 68 201402171531 4901
The DS81 provides video output Display ports to support 4K high resolution (3840x2160). Now with four times the resolution of Full HD, viewers can enjoy the super detailed and crystal clear imaging of 4K.

Dual-screen display output

Backend Feature 68 201402171531 4902
The DS81 provides two display ports and one HDMI video outputs. Users can choose dual-screen display by HDMI+ Display port or Display port+ Display port configurations. An adaptor can be used to convert Display port to HDMI or DVI port to diversify signal selection and provide the options of dual monitor or standalone display.

High speed transmission interface

Backend Feature 68 201402171635 4903
Increase system efficiency and save time on data transfer time. The DS81 is equipped with the latest Intel H81 Express Chipset and supports SATA 6Gbps high speed storage interface and USB 3.0 ports. SATA 6Gbps has twice the transfer rate of SATA 3Gbps; USB 3.0 (support up to 5 Gbps of bandwidth) provides 10 times the data access speed than a USB 2.0 port.

Built-in 2x Mini PCIe slots

Backend Feature 68 201402171532 4904
The DS81 features strong expandability with one full size and one half size Mini PCIe slots. This compact system can support mSATA SSD and WIFI modules, among other compatible modules.

Great connectivity

Backend Feature 68 201402171533 4905
With four built-in USB 2.0 ports at the front panel, two RS232 ports (one RS232 and one RS422/RS485) and two USB3.0 and USB2.0 ports at the rear panel, the DS81 can easily connect to peripherals such as thermal printers, label printers and bar code scanners. It offers a wide range of vertical applications. An adaptor can be used to convert RS232 to USB port for supporting more devices.

Support Dual Gigabit LAN

Backend Feature 68 201402201328 4950
The DS81 features Dual Gigabit LAN to support 10Mb/s, 100 Mb/s, 1000 Mb/s transfer capacity as well as Wake On LAN and Teaming Mode functions. Connect to a single network using two cables at once with an appropriate switch (teaming mode with load balancing or failover function) or to two different networks depending on the needs of the user.

Support Power on by RTC

Backend Feature 68 201402171534 4907
Enter BIOS to set up the Power on by RTC function that allows users to set a time to boot up the computer; this can also be turned on and off via the Windows task scheduler. With Power on after Power failure function, the DS81 will automatically reboot in the event of a power supply interruption.

External Power button

Backend Feature 68 201402171537 4906
The external power button is key for vertical applications where the power on button is often out of reach. The DS81 has a power-on from remote line feature, enabling users to power on from a separate location. Users can find four-pin-connector at the back panel of DS81. In addition, this connector also provides the Clear CMOS function. Without opening the chassis, users can reset the BIOS settings.

The Watch Dog

Backend Feature 68 201402171538 4909
Watchdog Timer provides excellent security protection for systems that need to operate continuously for a long period of time. Use Shuttle’s Watch Dog utility to maintain the normal operation and stability of the system at all times.

VESA Mount Capability

Backend Feature 68 201402171538 4910
The compact 43 mm thick DS81 has multiple screw holes specially designed on the side of the machine. The design is VESA mount compliant and allows for versatile integration into hardware systems. This space saving capability is well-suited for application of digital signage with limited space.

Energy saving

Backend Feature 68 201402171538 4911
The DS81 consumes less than 90W of power in full use and delivers stable, high-performance, and long-term operation. With built-in heat pipe technology, the system features low noise operation and reduced power consumption. This design saves energy costs.
