Axiomtek - a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development and manufacture of series of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency - is pleased to announce the MANO522, a Mini-ITX motherboard powered by the LGA1151 socket 9th/8th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processor (code name: Coffee Lake) with the Intel H310 chipset. With a small form factor of 17 x 17 cm, this industrial motherboard is an excellent choice for space-constrained environments. Its high computing power, 4K-ready and high expandability make it well-suited for intelligent transportation, factory automation, self-service kiosks, infotainment, and digital signage.

"Axiomtek's MANO522 is a great embedded board for industrial edge computing applications which require high-resolution graphics and reduced energy consumption," said Michelle Mi, the product manager of the Product Planning Division at Axiomtek. "This industrial motherboard is integrated with Intel integrated Gfx graphics engine with UHD 4K resolution and provides rapid video acceleration and dual-view capability through the VGA, HDMI and LVDS. To ensure reliable operation, the MANO522 has a wide operating temperature range of 0°C to 60°C. It also supports watchdog timer and hardware monitoring and offers Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM 2.0) for optimum security."
The MANO522 supports two 260-pin DDR4-2666/2400 SO-DIMM sockets for up to 64 GB of memory. It comes with rich I/O options, including two Gigabit LANs with Intel Ethernet controller i211-AT and Intel Ethernet Connection i219-LM, one HD Codec audio, four USB 3.2 Gen1, two USB 2.0, one RS-232/422/485 with +5/+12V power, five RS-232, one VGA, one HDMI, and one LVDS. The industrial-grade Mini-ITX motherboard features two SATA-600 connectors and one M.2 Key M supporting NVMe for additional storage. In addition, it is equipped with one PCIe x16 and one M.2 Key E slot for wireless devices such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. The MANO522 is compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 10 operating systems.

Axiomtek's new Mini-ITX motherboard, the MANO522, is now available for purchase.

the MANO522 has a wide operating temperature range of 0°C to 60°C.
60C? seems a bit low ?

I think it means 60C ambient. The bare minimum limit where you can call it industrial grade.
However, according to wikipedia,
  • Commercial: 0 ° to 70 °C
  • Industrial: −40 ° to 85 °C
  • Military: −55 ° to 125 °C
So it only corresponds to consumer grade and is unclear why they mention the temp range in the article, as if they wanted it to be industrial grade.

I love how we all came here for the same reason so far - 0-60c.

Thanks to the guy who explained the bit and exposed the marketing wank.

The industry certainly doesn't need the full industrial temperature range for all applications. Likewise, the military uses lots of PCs that would immediately fail if exposed to +125 °C (or much worse if they contain lithium batteries). The fact that the temperature range is even specified makes this board an industrial board, I think.
Compare that to the hard drive from Apacer in the other press release today. "Military-grade shockproof" but no temperatures specified.
