This device is classed as a technical information
equipment (ITE) in class B and is intended for use in
living room and office. The CE-mark approves the
conformity by the EU-guidelines:
- EMV-guideline 89/336/EWG electromagnetic tolerance
- LVD-guideline 73/23/EWG use of electric devices
within certain voltage-limits
 Power on after power fail:
The BIOS setup provides a "Power-On after Power Fail" function that can be found under "Power Management Configuration". As the name indicates, this function determines the PC's behaviour after power failure: (1) unconditional power on, (2) restore former status or (3) keep system turned off. As a matter of the nature of this function, it may fail after short power failures. This is why the XH97V also comes with a hardware-based solution. By removing Jumper 4 (on the mainboard near the "Shuttle" imprint), the system will start unconditionally once power is supplied.
 How to convert DisplayPort into HDMI/DVI
The DisplayPort outputs can be converted to HDMI or DVI by an additional, passive adapter cable. For example:
DELOCK 82590: 1m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to HDMI-A (male, 19p)
DELOCK 82435: 5m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to DVI-D (male, 24p)
The integrated graphics automatically detects the connected display and puts out the appropriate electric signal - either DisplayPort (without an adapter) or HDMI/DVI (with an adapter).
However, a monitor with a DisplayPort connector cannot be connected to the HDMI port with a simple, passive adapter.
 Three independent displays simultaneously
The DS87 supports a maximum of two displays with a DVI or HDMI input. A third digital display, if required, must be connected directly to the DisplayPort output (without an adapter).
 Optional Wireless LAN module:
This Slim PC supports an optional WLAN module which consists of a half-size Mini-PCIe card with IEEE 802.11n functionality and an external antenna with an appropriate antenna cable. Shuttle offers a suitable accessory kit "WLN-S" with two antennas to increase WLAN range.
 4K Ultra-HD resolution
A 4K-display with Ultra-HD resolution (3840 x 2160) should be connected via DisplayPort, as only this port supports a higher refresh rate of 60Hz. Certain displays (e.g. Dell UP2414Q) however require MST mode (Multi-Stream Transport) to be enabled which sends two separate images at half resolution each to the display. These two images are then combined and put in correct order by the Intel graphics driver when in Collage mode. Please note that HBR2-mode (High Bit Rate 2) must be supported by each display to have two of them run at 4K resolution.
The video playback performance depends on the video format, bit rate and the processor used. Daily office applications usually won't require the system to run under full load, however for smooth 4K (2160p) video playback requirements are different. An Intel Core i3 processor or higher is recommended here, since the performance of the integrated graphics engine of a Celeron or Pentium processor might not suffice.
 Optional accessory: Drive bay cover
If the XH97V is used without an optical slimline drive, this cover helps close the open bay which can be particularly important in public institutions and prevent from dust and objects being inserted inappropriately. Please contact Shuttle for the optional accessory "Mylar POI-MY01".
 Caution: for high ambient temperature over 40°C we strongly recommend to use SSDs instead of hard disk drives.
 The optional accessory PHD4 allows for installation of one 3.5" hard drive. However doing so means no other drives such as a slimline DVD drive or a 2.5" HDD/SSD can be used.
 mini-SATA (mSATA)
mSATA, not to confuse with "micro SATA", is a newer industry standard that converts the electrical SATA interface (1.5 or 3.0 Gbit/s) to the physical "Mini PCI Express" mini card form factor.
