How to Enable Auto Power On

The DX series has two options for auto power on. The easiest and most reliable method is to use the hardware switch on the front. The downside of this method is that the power button is completely disabled. If you shut down the PC, you will need to cycle power to restart it. If that is an issue for your case, use option 2 instead.

Option 1: Hardware

  1. Loosen the two Torx T10 screws from the front panel.
  2. They will not come out, but the panel will come loose.
  1. Underneath the panel you will find a switch labeled AT/ATX.
  2. Slide the switch to AT mode.
  3. Auto power on is now enabled.

Option 2: BIOS

  • Power on the system and immediately press the Del key a few times to access the BIOS.
  • Navigate over to the Chipset tab and open the PCH-IO Configuration menu.
  • Change the Power Failure option to [Always On].
  • Navigate to the Save & Exit tab and choose “Save Changes and Reset”

Troubleshooting

How to Clear CMOS

Common bootup and power problems can be resolved through a CMOS reset.

  1. Unplug the system completely from power and all peripherals
  2. Loosen the two Torx T10 screws from the front panel.
  3. They will not come out, but the panel will come loose.
  1. Locate the clear CMOS switch.
  1. Move the switch to the clear position.
  2. Wait 30 seconds.
  3. Restore the switch to the normal position. The CMOS is now clear.

mSATA not detected

If the CMOS is cleared or the BIOS is restored to defaults, any mSATA drives will no longer be detected. Changing a setting in the BIOS can correct this.

  • Power on the system and immediately press the Del key a few times to access the BIOS.
  • Navigate over to the Chipset tab and open the PCH-IO Configuration menu.
  • Note the 3 slots all set to Mini-PCIe. This works for WiFi cards but not for mSATA storage drives. Change all 3 slots to mSATA mode. If your system is equipped with WiFi, some guess and check will be needed to determine which slot needs to stay in PCIe mode.
  • Save changes and reset. The mSATA drive should now be detected.

Ignition Sensing

The Cincoze series systems have an optional ignition sensing module, a feature that allows you to turn your Cincoze unit on or off through your vehicle power.

So how exactly does ignition sensing work and how is it useful to you?

Ignition sensing on the Cincoze series works such that the unit can be powered on or off depending on whether the vehicle itself is on or off. For example, if the vehicle ignition is turned on, the PC unit will power on. Likewise, when ignition is turned off, the PC unit will power off. A timer can be configured to allow the system to run for a set amount of time after the voltage drops below the threshold. More information about how ignition sensing works and how to configure it can be found in the IGN Module User Manual:

Operating Voltage Range

The Cincoze ignition modules have maximum and minimum working voltage ranges depending on the voltage setting. This is only applicable to the ignition module for the system. Refer to the table below for these values:

IGN voltage settingWorking Voltage RangeVoltage
12VMaximum Working Voltage17.3 V
Minimum Working Voltage9.6V
24VMaximum Working Voltage52V
Minimum Working Voltage20V
