TRACe B304-TR – Fanless Railway Computer Baseline


Kontron TRACe B304-TR is an EN50155-certified, fanless operational computer that offers easy customisation via MiniPCIe slots to meet application-specific requirements.

The TRACe B304-TR ensures stable operation in adverse environments, and is built on COMExpress© featuring Intel® Atom Bay Trail (quad core @ 1.91 GHz).

The Kontron TRACe B304-TR is designed with a wide-range power supply (from 24VDC to 110VDC). Its front plate is dedicated to operational connectors (certified I/O according to the EN50155 standard for ethernet, USB, serial ports, audio, digital inputs and outputs), while its rear plate hosts maintenance connectors (display port, USB, serial, Ethernet, 2x SIM card slots). On the latter, a reserved area with three pre-holes enables routing of Mini PCI-Express cards I/O signals (GSM / GPRS / LTE / 3G / 4G, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth).

Kontron’s TRACe B304-TR enables custom configuration as a result of its modular and extendable design. A customisable option plate is available for the device and used for additional interfaces (MVB, CAN Layer2, CAN Open, Profibus).

In addition, the device includes sensors and a micro-controller for system health monitoring. The integrated micro-controller monitors ambient temperature, current and voltages for in-box and boards, as well as manages vital product data (such as the P/N, S/N, or EC level) for main components.

The TRACe B304-TR includes the following specifications:

  • Easy customisation, including front plate area for connectors, Mini PCI-e card slots
  • Intel® Atom™ E3845 quad-core at 1.91 GHz
  • Health management controller for continuous independent monitoring
