With approximately 300 employees worldwide, the company provides a robust offering of highly reliable, embedded commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) boards and devices that are widely used in extreme environmental conditions found in mobile, industrial and safety-critical applications.

The company’s products include:

  • Safe computers and systems certifiable up to SIL 4 and DAL-A
  • Robust built-to-order box PCs
  • Panel PCs for human machine interfaces (HMI) and digital signage
  • Pre-configured built-to-order 19in systems
  • Rugged CompactPCI boards and systems
  • Network components in compact box format or 40 HP format
  • Robust computer-on-modules for individual system designs

For individual requirements, starting with development through design-in and beyond, MEN provides its customers with advice and support as well as system design, configuration and environmental qualification in accordance with industry standards.

The MA50C is the controller of the AAR sub-family of the menTCS Train Control System for safety-critical vehicle or wayside applications such as PTC, ATO/ATC or ATP - only available in a project context.
The F75P is an x86 Intel Atom E680T based fail-safe vital embedded computer, certifiable up to SIL 4 with onboard dual redundancy for functional safety and a third CPU for I/O communication. It targets safety-critical applications in embedded railway and wayside computers and in industrial automation. F75P is also part of the menTCS Train Control System.
The DC15 is a rugged, fanless and maintenance-free human-machine interface (HMI) for the train driver cabin desk, interfacing for example as display control unit of the Computer Based Train Control system (CBTC) to the Automated Train Operation system (ATO).
The BL51E is a rugged, fanless EN 50155 railway and E-Mark automotive box computer for in-vehicle functions such as passenger information systems (PIS), surveillance and storage based on Intel Atom E3900.
The MH50C is the central component of the menTCS train control system for safety-critical vehicle or wayside applications such as ATO/ATC or ATP based on ERTMS/ETCS, PTC, PZB/Indusi or ZUB.
The MH70R main server is the central component of the menRDC railway data center with an Intel Xeon D CPU board offering 10GB and Gb Ethernet, USB 3.0, as well as wireless communication and storage.
The G25A is an x86 PC based embedded computer for industrial automation and railway transportation, featuring the Intel Xeon D-1500 processor of the Broadwell-DE server family with up to 16 cores. The SBC is a COTS platform for virtualization in an Industrial Internet Of Things (IIOT) environment. The G25A is also part of the menRDC Railway Data Center.
The NH30 is a turnkey 4U 40 HP network switch platform with carrier grade Layer 2 and Layer 3 VLAN routing capabilities offering a seamless throughput of 29Gbit/s.
The MH70S is a modular turnkey 4U 40 HP storage PC, which meets the requirements of storage intensive applications such as digital video recorders, content servers or Network Attached Storage systems.
KT8 is a safe remote I/O box certifiable up to SIL 4 for TCS applications like train control, ATO or ATP using the menTCS Train Control System.

The company’s core competencies encompass x86 and RISC processor architectures, development rules for safe applications, analog I / O design, field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology and Windows, Linux and real-time operating systems. Additional expertise includes RAMS and obsolescence management as well as the development of computing hardware for operation in harsh and extreme environmental conditions. Development, production and on-site testing laboratories guarantee traceability and high-quality products.

MEN Mikro Elektronik’s computer solutions are used in harsh mission and safety-critical environments found in the transportation (rail and public transport, off-road and heavy vehicles, aerospace, marine) and industrial (automation, power and energy, medical) markets.

The company is certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 (environment), EN 9100 (aerospace) and IRIS (railway) quality management systems. It provides systems according to ISO 7637-2 (road traffic) requirements, and is a member of several industry associations, consortiums and alliances, including VITA and PICMG.
