Difference between MangoES and MangoHTS


  • Hello,

    I have a question, what are the differences between MangoES and MangoHTS? In the specification for both models it is written that are a perfect choice for small to medium standalone or edge applications with less than 3000 data points and less than 10 users.

    Why should pay the extra money for the HTS? It is more powerful than MangoES?

    Thank you.


  • Just from looking at it I'd say there are a boatload more peripherals (including a SIM for remote locations) and I'm trusting that with the aluminium case that would allow for better heat dissipation. I swear the standard ES units are not made for areas with high ambient temperatures, I get occasional overheating.


  • That's exactly right. The MangoHTS is an industrial PC rated up to 70c where the MangoES is rated at a max of 40c. The MangoHTS has 4GB (double the MangoES) of ram and a 64GB SSD hard drive so it is more powerful than the MangoES. It includes two ethernet ports and 4 serial ports. The CPU is slower but usually, RAM and hard drive space are the limiting factors with Mango.


  • Thank you all for the reply.


  • If you are looking at the HTS units, I'd recommend you also look at the new GT mangoes. We are trialling some now with the view to use these instead of the ES mangoes in the future. The GT's have lower processing power, but a higher temp rating and no fan (which we have found to be a common point of failure in some conditions).


  • Got a link? Don't see it on their site. I've got systems constantly running in the high 80's at the core temp.


  • Hi Matt

    Sorry, I don't have a link. Hopefully someone from IA can provide some information.

  • I would also be interested for more information in the GT version of ES.


  • The MangoGT was launched this year and we are still working on the brochure for it. It comes in the same enclosure as the MangoES, the SoC has the following specs:
    Broadcom BCM2837B0, Cortex-A53 (ARMv8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.2GHz
    1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM
    8GB/16GB/32GB eMMC Flash memory

    As for the high CPU temperature of the MangoES. This was quite a common issue on the Odroid-Xu4 SBC that was used. I did some extensive researching and found it be quite normal, and found a lot of forum post with people running their Odroid for many years at 80 degrees. What did happen was that if there was not enough ventilation the EMMC would dislodge or burn out.


  • Truth be told, those cases being plastic insulate and keep the heat trapped in. The fan is on the underside and there is no actual means for decent ventilation.
    I took the case off and bam, the CPU dropped 10 degrees centigrade.
    I'd argue against it being normal, I think if you're going to continue to run gear that hot there will always be heat related issues.


  • You right normal might not be the best word but definitely common in most on-market cases for the odroid.


  • I'm happy to be corrected by someone from IA, but I believe the best current info on the GT mango is at:

  • @mattfox I tried removing the plastic case but I haven't figured out the trick to release the corner with the red clip that grabs onto the DIN rail. Any advice so I can avoid breaking it?


  • Need to access through the side with a precision screwdriver and carefully push the angled plastic away from the grey tab. It's inside the case, not through the bottom like the rest.

  • @mattfox got it! Thanks a lot, man!
