MEN Mikro Elektronik (Germany) has launched its SC27 single-board computer, which was designed for display applications with little space. Options include a CAN interface, which can be added via an SA-adapter.
THE SBC PROVIDES EN 50155 CONFORMITY, which makes it suitable for rail vehicle applications. All electronic components are soldered to withstand shock and vibration and prepared for conformal coating. The product controls panel PCs with screen sizes from 7 inch to 15 inch and a maximum resolution of 1280 x 768 pixel. With its maintenance-free and fan-less design, it is suited for industrial controls as well as driver desk solutions and infotainment systems in trains and buses or in HMIs in the automotive sector.
An Intel Atom processor of the E600 series powers the board, running at 1,6 GHz. Thanks to its comparably low power dissipation of 5 W to 7 W and a temperature sensor for monitoring the display, the device is reliable even in the extended temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C.
The computer is equipped with 2-GiB DDR2 SDRAM. Wireless communication via Wifi, Wimax, GSM/GPRS, UMTS, HSDPA and LTE can be provided via the PCI Express Mini Card and the microSIM card slot. Through these, passengers can be kept up to date through infotainment applications during the trip. By default, the device includes a rail-compliant wide-range PSU for 24 VDC/36 VDC. Optionally, power supply can be implemented via Power over Ethernet (48 VDC).
