The BC50R is a maintenance-free box computer that has been designed, e.g., for data acquisition applications in rugged environments in vehicles, e.g. in trains, commercial vehicles, mobile machines or ships.
MEN Mikro Elektronik received the CNA award for innovation for the development of a new computer platform for trains that meets the increased requirements for modularity and connectivity in the railway market. In the spirit of “Mobility 4.0”, the virtualization-enabled platform consolidates all data processing and communication on a train and in train-land communication. Advantages that were previously reserved for the office IT environment are now reliably working in railway applications.
The Rugged COM Express (RCE) module CB30C has been developed according to railway standards EN 50128 (software) and EN 50129 (hardware) and has now received the SIL 2 certification from TÜV SÜD. Due to its robust design, it is particularly suitable for safety-critical applications, e.g., in rail or bus transport, but also in demanding industrial applications.
