CERTIFIABLE TO THE RAILWAY STANDARD EN 50155 OR EN 60945 for shipping and conforming to the E-mark for the automotive sector (ISO 7637-2), the box computer is suitable for use in extreme environments in vehicles. It is powered by an AMD Embedded G-Series APU. The combination of the various CPU/GPU options with the available selection of external interfaces (realized via separate graphics and I/O interface boards within the system) makes for a flexible system design that can be tailored to a variety of applications. All interfaces such as CAN, USB, digital input and output, Gigabit Ethernet, and legacy serial I/Os are implemented on rugged M12 connectors.

Inside the system two PCI Express Mini card slots with two SIM card slots offer WLAN, GNSS, or 3G/4G functionality. The necessary antenna connectors can be made available at the front panel. The BC50R is equipped with 2 GiB of DDR3 SDRAM and offers SD card and mSATA slots. The system was designed for fan-less operation at temperatures from -40 °C to +70 °C (+85 °C for up to 10 minutes). Its aluminum housing protects the internal electronics. The product supports either a 24-VDC or 36-VDC (10 V to 50,4 V) class S2 power supply in compliance with EN 50155 or power supplies which comply with ISO 7637-2 (E-mark for automotive) (nominal input voltage 24 V) or with EN 60945 (ship).
