Description Technical Specs
For high-performance vertical markets, Shuttle’s all-new DS81 has a body thickness of only 43 mm. The compact system supports international VESA Mount standards and can be fit to diverse commercial applications. Shuttle’s DS81 equipped with Intel® H81 Express Chipset supports Intel® Haswell 4th generation Core™ i3/i5/i7 65W Processor, built-in DirectX 11.1 compatible with Intel® HD Graphics. The system has built-in display ports to display 4K content and allows users to play ultra-high quality video and multimedia content. To meet the diverse requirements of vertical markets, the DS81 provides a wide range of I/O and high-speed storage interface, including USB2.0, USB3.0, RS232/422/485, SATA 6Gbps and Mini PCIe. The system adopts Shuttle’s exclusive heat pipe cooling module with a smart fan design using only 90W, enabling efficient cooling and high-performance.
  • Support Intel® 4th generation Core™ processor

    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.

    Heat pipe cooling technology

    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.

    Support 4K Ultra HD

    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.

    High speed transmission interface

    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.

    Great connectivity

    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 Power on by RTC

    Enter BIOS to set up the Power on by RTC function that allows you to set a time to boot up the computer and to turn off with the Windows task scheduler. This feature means saving electricity and energy as well as eliminating the cost of on-site service. With Power on after Power failure function, the DS81 will automatically reboot in the event of a power supply interruption.

    The Watch Dog

    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.

    Energy saving

    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.

    Multiple Operating System Support

    Window 7
    Window 8

    Slim design and Easy assembly

    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.

    Industrial Solid Capacitors = High Stability

    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

    Dual-screen display output

    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.

    Built-in 2x Mini PCIe slots

    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.

    Support Dual Gigabit LAN

    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.

    External Power button

    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.

    VESA Mount Capability

    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.

    Commercial Custom Bios Service

    For commercial customers, Shuttle provides BIOS-customized service. Based on different operating environments, we will assist customers to define the parameters and functions of the BIOS to meet the demand of OEM commercial customers.

Reviewer: David Austin from Albany, NY United States  
We've been getting Shuttles from The Book PC for several years now and have been very happy with the hardware but even happier with the support we've been getting from Brandon and the other folks at The Book PC. Although the Shuttles (primarily DS81) we've gotten have had very little problems, the few we've had were quickly addressed and solved by the folks down there in sunny Florida. Now if they would just send us some sun during the cold New York winters!!
