MEN Mikro Elektronik

The PC DC17 is a robust solution that has been developed specifically for railways, providing everything required for immediately operating a train.

It offers EN 50155 conformity, an IP65-protected housing, a 12.1in display with touchscreen, flexible I/O, wireless functionality and an extended temperature range from -40°C to 70°C.

  • AMD Embedded G-Series APU
  • 12.1in display with LED backlight, 1,024px x 768px resolution
  • Wireless communication, e.g., via 4G LTE, WLAN or GNSS
  • All external interfaces on robust M12 connectors
  • MVB interface (master or slave) option
  • Compliant to EN 50155, with extremely robust IP65 housing front
  • -40° to 70°C (85°C for ten minutes, compliant to class TX), fanless

A strong partner for HMI applications

The DC17 panel PC is used in demanding HMI applications in the railway market, e.g., for surveillance and status control of train functions, for speed optimisation, for fleet management, for driver assistance systems or CCTV.

The compact housing comes with an IP65 compliant front and offers enough space for a 12.1in impact-resistant XGA TFT LCD display with LED backlight. Together with 1,024px x 768px resolution and the projected capacitive touchscreen, DC17 is still well readable and easy-to-use, even when exposed to sunlight, e.g., in a driver cabin.

Compliant to the EN 50155 standard, the robust display computer comes with an integrated wide range power supply for 24VDC or 110VDC, according to class S2. In addition the inside electronics are protected against dust and humidity by conformal coating, are designed to operate in a temperature range from -40® to 70°C (85®C for ten minutes according to class TX) and are firmly soldered against shock and vibration.

By default, the panel PC based on the T40E AMD Dual Core processor, communicates via 2x Ethernet, 1x USB, 1x audio, GPIO and a serial interface, which are all accessible via M12 connectors on the rear. Furthermore, a PCI Express Mini Card interface and an M.2 slot are available, for instance to control wireless communication functions such as 2G, 3G, 4G, WLAN or GPS. Also, two micro-SIM slots with dual-SIM functionality are available.

The DC17 can flexibly connect to a multifunction vehicle bus (MVB) train network, by using a PCI Express Mini Card with either master or slave support.

Space-saving, robust and perfectly tailored to the market requirements, the display computer DC17 is the perfect device for demanding railway applications in harsh environments.
