Robust and Railway Compliant to EN 50155 – Fanless Panel PC with AMD APU

The robust panel PC, DC17, was especially developed for railway applications, and therefore offers everything that is needed for immediate use in a train: EN 50155 conformity, an IP65-protected housing, a 12.1" display with touch screen, flexible I/O, wireless functionality and an extended temperature range from -40 to +70°C.

  • AMD Embedded G-Series APU
  • 12.1" display with LED backlight, 1024 x 768 pixels 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 10 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 optimization, for fleet management, for driver assistance systems or CCTV.

The compact housing comes with an IP65 compliant front and offers enough space for a 12.1” impact-resistant XGA TFT LCD display with LED backlight. Together with 1024 x 768 pixels resolution and the projected capacitive touch screen, 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 24 VDC or 110 VDC, 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 10 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 like 2G, 3G, 4G, WLAN or GPS. Also, two micro-SIM slots with dual-SIM functionality are available.

The DC17 can flexibly connect to an MVB (Multifunction Vehicle Bus) 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.
