The extensive range of HMIs has been extended by a modular computer system. For applications such as routers or gateways or decentralised computer applications, no screen is normally needed in operating mode. Our Rail PC has been created precisely for such applications, as it features different hardware interfaces (serial, LAN, forWLAN, GSM, GSM-R, etc.) and can thus also serve as a protocol converter (with the appropriate software installed). But this computer can also be used as a data distribution centre (“Mini MIP”) or a “data collector and distributor”. If required, a suitable monitor from our VM series can be connected via a standardised interface, such as Display Port, DVI or VGA.
The VC1900 is based on the well-tried modules for HMIs with the current BayTrail Intel processor generation (E38xx). This means that software created for HMIs can run on the Rail PC with no changes necessary. In order to provide maximum protection against disturbances from the on-board power system, the VM1 series is equipped with a maintenance-free integrated UPS and is buffered by means of high-capacity condensers (double-layer capacitors) in an extended temperature range. In addition, the UPS also ensures safe shutdown in the event of a sudden disconnection of the on-board power system that was not actually intended (main switch “off” or during maintenance work).
Most of the so-called Box PCs, even though specified for rail technology, do not usually allow for vertical mounting. With the VC1900, this disadvantage is avoided thanks to specially arranged cooling fins (passive cooling concept, without fan), irrespective of whether it is mounted horizontally or vertically, it will always operate in a reliable manner. In this way, our Rail PC fits even into the smallest niches.
