7 August 2014 • Author: Advantech
Advantech, a leading embedded computing solution provider, announces tin addition to the existing ARS-2510 Series – the new ARS 2110TX Box PC.
ARS 2110TX for railway applications complies with EN 50155 and related regulations in order to fully fit the railway environment, also:
- On-board DVR
- Multi-media server:
- Train-to-track/ground bridge unit
- Supervision and control unit
Playing to its strengths
One of the key strengths of the ARS 2110TX Box PC is its combination of Intel Atom E3845/E3826 platform (3rd generation CPU platform) and TX temperature level (rail certification specifications range from T1, T2, T3 to TX). TX describes the relative temperature range, from -40°C up to 70°C, or 85°C for a duration of 10 minutes.
Another noteworthy feature is the railway-specific power supply, compliant to EN 50155 power input levels 24V/48V/72V/110V, through M12 circular-type connectors. The Box PC is equipped solely with circular and screwable connectors, a choice that guarantees easy integration – connections that are both robust and stable.
Furthermore, the computer has protection coating that conforms to IP50+. This inner lining layer prevents the ingress of dust and moisture, and so ensures its high performance status is maintained over time.
