Compact and Robust Intel Atom Panel PC for Railway Applications

09DC13

The DC13 display computer has everything you would expect from modern HMIs in railway applications: a fanless, compact and IP65-protected housing, 20 keys for easy operation, reliable electronics even in the extended temperature range of -30°C to +85°C and, of course, certification according to the EN 50155 railway standard.

Made-to-measure panel PC for HMIs in trains

The DC13 panel PC is particularly suitable for demanding HMI applications in the railway sector, for example for monitoring and displaying train functions, for speed optimisation or for fleet management.

Based on the Intel Atom E620T with 0.6 GHz and a total power dissipation of only 13 Watts, the DC13 runs reliably at temperatures between -30 and +70°C and for 10 minutes at up to +85°C (railway class Tx), even without maintenance-prone cooling with fans. Moreover, a sensor monitors the temperature of the display.

Apart from the 8.4in TFT LCD display with a resolution of 800px by 600px the compact housing (245mm x 200mm x 50mm) also accommodates 20 pushbuttons typical for railway applications. The electronics inside the IP65 and EN 50155 compliant panel PC won’t start skidding if the journey causes shock and vibration and they are prepared for coating against dust and humidity.

By standard the DC13 is equipped with Power over Ethernet functionality via Fast Ethernet on an M12 connector, which allows for an easy and cost-effective power supply of 37 V to 57 V (48 VDC nom.). In addition, the DC13 offers a USB 2.0 interface, 512 MB DDR2 SDRAM and a microSD card slot.

An optional PCI Express Mini Card slot in combination with an antenna connector makes it possible to implement wireless functions like Wi-Fi, WIMAX, GSM/GPRS, UMTS, HSDPA and LTE – if required even GNSS (GPS/GLONASS) – for wireless communication. Further options include other display sizes from 7in to 15in, other CPUs from the Intel Atom E600 series or higher storage capacity.

Being space-saving, rugged and tailored exactly to the requirements of the market, the DC13 display computer is the perfect companion for demanding railway applications.
