More Information on menTCS
menTCS is an open and modular railway computer platform based exclusively on standard hardware and software. It is certifiable up to SIL 4 in its single parts and complies with the EN 50126 (RAMS), EN 50128 (software) and EN 50129 (hardware) railway development standards for functional safety.
The train control system is designed to operate in safety-critical rolling-stock applications such as Automatic Train Control (ATO) and Automatic Train Protection (ATP) as well as in wayside applications like interlocking systems. The modular Train Control System from MEN consists of the safe controller, the safe I/O functions, and the communication interfaces to the "outside" world.
Its modular configuration enables the menTCS system to communicate with other train systems like service or diagnosis units via any type of wired or wireless interface. Additionally, fieldbus interfaces like MVB, CAN, Profinet etc, can be implemented to connect into other networks. This makes it easy to integrate into a TCN network as well as into regionally different Train Control Systems like PTC, ETCS, CTCS, ATCS or Klub-U.
The robust and rail-ready menTCS components comply with the railway standards for environmental and EMC conditions EN 50155 (rolling-stock) and EN 50125-3 / EN 50121-4 (signalling/wayside).
Let MEN design your individual safe computer system based on our long-standing experience in the realization of mission-critical electronics for the railway market.
