Axiomtek, one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of innovative, high-performance and reliable PC-based industrial computer products, has launched its tBOX323-835-FL for in-train applications.

Integrated with onboard quad-core Intel® Atom™ E3845 processor and 4GB low-powered DDR3L memory, the fanless railway embedded system boosts its computing performance and specialises its I/O design with five isolated COM ports, two M12-type LAN connectors, USB 2.0 ports and one isolated digital I/O. The railway PC also provides VGA and HDMI outputs for in-train surveillance.

The tBOX323-835-FL is an ideal, all-in-one internet of things (IoT) solution for various applications, including railway multi-functions of gateway, controller, digital signage management and surveillance. Certificated with EN50155 and EN50121 for rolling stock and complied with EN45545-2 for fire resistance, the rugged system operates reliably in a -40ºC to 70ºC operating temperature range (EN50155 Class TX) and in a high-vibration environment.

"The Axiomtek tBOX323-835-FL answers all operational and environmental concerns to be used on rolling stocks, including temperature requirements to resist elements, global railway fire protection standards, anti-shock and anti-vibration features, mount requirements for the equipment and power supply requirements," said Jerry Huang, product manager of product marketing division at Axiomtek.

"The outstanding embedded PC also features great expansion and storage capability, including three PCI Express Mini Card slots, two SIM card slots, one 2.5in SATA HDD / SSD with suspension mounting and one front-accessible CFast™ socket. The low-power consumption railway system provides a reliable yet economical and practical option for user finding a high integration and value computing IPC."

Enhanced vibration and shock resistance

Axiomtek tBOX323-835-FL adopts an onboard processor and onboard DRAM which greatly reduces the impact of vibration and shock ideally for railway fields.

Considering to the system reliability, the M12 LAN connectors and other lockable or screw I/Os also can keep all cables tightly secured.

Isolated port design

To prevent ESD and over-voltage, this compact-size embedded system is equipped with five isolated RS-232 / 422 / 485 ports and one isolated digital I/O connector for offering excellent power protection.

Great expansion capability

For greater expansion capability, there are total three internal PCI Express Mini Card slots, including one supporting mSATA storage function. Two SIM sockets are also available for 2G / 3G / 4G, GPS, WI-FI and Bluetooth applications.

Axiomtek’s Intel® Atom-based railway embedded platform, tBOX323-835-FL, is going to be available in late January 2015.
