Adhering to stringent safety compliances are generally defacto to the meeting of rail applications – PC products frequently requiring pre-certifications of EN50155 / EN50121 and anti-vibration (compliant with MIL-STD 810F-514.5 C1, C2 and C3).
Just some of the essential features you’ll find on our rail certified products are :-
- Wide range DC (+110V) power input
- Multiple display interface connections (VGA, DVI-D, HDMI and LVDS)
- Anti-Vibration chassis design
- Robust M12 type I/O Connection (to resist) resist vibration and provide reliable connectivity in harsh environmental conditions
As is frequently the case, rail applications will typically need a level of customisation / configuration to be provided – particularly around the exacting of the key features needed for an appplication. BVM will not only look after the engineering to re-configure the product, but also take care of the required certifications of the product, too – utilising long standing partnerships with test houses here in the UK.
BVM not only provide systems applicable to the train cab, but also for rolling stock (certified to IEC 61373) and trackside systems, for example, for the assistance of rail safety for level crossings. Additionally, away from the PC side of things – we also provide thermal printer solutions for mobile or kiosk ticketing systems for station car parking and passenger ticketing, too.
Railway Embedded PC Systems available with Intel i3 / i5 / i7 / Celeron CPU’s. EN45545, EN50155 and EN50121-4 Certification. Suitable for demanding IIoT applications in the railway sector, including tasks like monitoring and controlling speed, temperature and security.
Rail Panel PCs
With rail certifications of EN45545, EN50155 and EN50121-4, Rail Panel PCs meet applications such as monitoring & controlling train speed, temperature and security & passenger infotainment updates – featuring high bright LED backlight (up to 1000 nits) display touchscreens to allow a train- operators to easily read any operational status messages, even under direct sunlight. Other features include display auto dimming and M12 lockable connectors to combat shock and vibration.
