Fanless and compact and robust computer case for heavy tasks in rough environments. Ideal for Mini-ITX-systems with a total TDP of <=100 watt.

The K.I.S.S.S. D5LI-S is a compact case with volume of approx. 9 liters. Via its massive cooling profiles at the sides in combination with a K.I.S.S.S.-Coolset it allows to cool Mini-ITX-systems passively by natural convection. As lost heat is conducted through the side-gated heat sinks no ventilation holes are required for sufficient cooling. Our flagship product is made from ~5 kg of aluminum and ~2 kg of stainless steel which leads to outstanding torsion-resistance, robustness and heat dissipation. Two embedded O-ring gaskets and silicone seals protect the built in system from spray/hose water and dust. Due to these characteristics the D5LI-S is ideal for applications in which high requirements in computer performance encounter tough environments.

The D5LI-S is built extremely robust and without compromises in material usage. This leads to e.g. a front bezel with 12 mm material precision milled from solid aluminum and a bottom plate made of 1.5 mm laser cutted stainless steel. Impactics uses for the D5LI-S solely aluminum alloy, stainless and chromium steel. The brackets for heat pipe installation is the only exception made of zinc-plated steel (SECC).

An open-frame ATX psu with maximum dimensions of 100 x 200 mm fits as well into the D5LI-S as a Mini-ITX mainboard, up to four 2.5″ HDDs, an expansion card and a power entry filter. HDDs are directly mounted beneath the 4mm thick aluminum top cover to ensure proper cooling.  The IP67 power switch has a blue ring LED.

Built highly modularized the D5LI-S can be customized easily according to clients‘ requirements.

Haptics and the robust design might remind in amplifier cases of former generations – maybe not looking sophisticated but conventional and indestructible.

D5LI-S is not available in retail or individually but solely via assembled systems from (industrial) system integrators. If you are interested on a D5LI-S based system please contact us.

Please note that an optional IP54 protection for the back side is available. Case can be ordered with torx or  hexagon screws.
