Rail Solutions

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.
