How to set up your computer to auto


Did you know that you can phối your computers to tự động hóa power-on after a power nguồn loss? At we produce high-quality, rugged, fanless and ventless PC solutions designed to lớn reduce failure points và ensure minimal downtime for our clients. Unreliable power nguồn is something that many industrial computer users face on a daily basis. An uninterruptible power nguồn supply (UPS), also known as a battery backup, can help & provide backup nguồn when your regular power nguồn source fails or voltage drops to lớn an unacceptable level. But sometimes a UPS only buys enough time for a safe, orderly shutdown of your computer.

Power Loss Happens

UPS solutions and industrial grade components go a long way toward to lớn ensure system longevity. Still, there are situations where power loss is inevitable. Extended outages or the lack of a UPS system are examples of this. Both lead to systems powering down. But what happens when the power is restored and the hardware needs lớn be powered back on? We often mount industrial & rugged PCs in places that are either remote or difficult to lớn reach. In these situations, simply pressing the nguồn button may be highly inconvenient or downright impossible.

Thankfully, all computers have the capability khổng lồ automatically reboot after power nguồn loss. Auto Power-On is just a setting away. Depending on the system, we can enable it using hardware or software. Either way, it’s easy and reliable.

Auto Power-On Using Hardware

Besides a software option for auto Power-On, some motherboard manufacturers will offer a hardware setting for this. One hardware option can be a motherboard sạc pin header. This ensures that a dead CMOS battery or BIOS reset won’t affect the auto Power-On setting. Lớn enable this hardware setting, we’ll need lớn change the appropriate jumper on the motherboard (see image). The drawback is that you need to open the case to do so. This can be challenging for fanless, ventless systems. Therefore it’s best to showroom the jumper during system assembly. Even then, tư vấn and functionality of this hardware method isn’t universal. That’s why a software solution is frequently the more desirable choice.
