In this blog post, we will explain how to getting started with DSBOX-TX2NX, an industrial fanless PC. DSBOX-TX2NX is a high valued and compact box PC with Nvidia Jetson TX2NX module.

Here are some DSBOX-TX2NX visuals. 


The rear view of DSBOX-TX2NX can be seen like below. 

Before you plug-in the DC power cable, you should plug in Ethernet cable, keyboard, and mouse USB cables to USB ports and HDMI cable to HDMI port socket for monitoring the system. After connections are done, you can plug in the DC power cable to the “DC IN” socket. If you have an auto power version of DSBOX-TX2NX, the system runs as soon as you plug the DC power cable in. If you have another version, you should press the power button which is located on the front side. The DC Power Source should be in the range of 9-28 Volt DC. You can find the DC Power socket when you open the package of the product.  



You can see the power connector pinout below. The first and third pins are positive polarization, second and fourth pins are negative polarization.

You can have DC Power Adapter, GPIO Mating Socket, HDMI Cable, and Ethernet Cable as optional.
