Works Where You Work

Reliable performance in unreliable conditions.

Intel® NUC 8 Rugged. Works Where You Need It to.

  • 24x7 — The Intel® NUC 8 Rugged is built to last and qualified for 24x7 sustained operations—a critical feature for most IoT and commercial operations.1

  • 80% — Executives who say IoT is critical to business success.2

  • 64B — IoT devices predicted to be in operation by 2025.2

  • 15% — Increase in customers for quick service restaurants who install digital signage.3



Intel® NUC 8 Rugged is a PC kit that’s small on size but not on toughness or reliability. It features a fanless, ventless design to minimize particle intrusion, so it’s built to survive environments most PCs can’t—from a busy factory floor to a dusty warehouse. And even without a fan, it can operate in temperatures from 0-40˚C to thrive in severe in-the-field conditions.

Housed in a small chassis that’s slim enough to fit almost anywhere, the NUC 8 Rugged is also available as a board-only option that can be easily integrated into your own digital solutions. It’s powered by an Intel® Celeron® processor, making it the ideal PC solution to keep edge analytics, digital signage, or surveillance cameras up and running around the clock. And with a 3-year warranty, it’s performance that’s designed to last.
