Application-ready box PCs, PCs based on the 19” CompactPCI / Serial standard and Ethernet switches are delivered built-to-order – maximum customization with standard components!
Application-ready, built-to-order and prepared for the IoT – the robust fanless box computers, 19” industrial PCs and Ethernet switches from MEN.
As MEN’s standard box PC concept is modular, the devices are controlled by x86 and other CPU architectures like ARM or PowerPC. The 19” IPCs – being based on the CompactPCI / Serial standards – offer even more flexibility in terms of processor scalability.
Standard box PCs come with a different focus on the I/O, e.g., graphics, wireless/navigation, mass storage, Ethernet switch/router, or fieldbuses. As the internal I/O set-up is modular – e.g., using PCI Express Mini Cards – and, above all, separated from the CPU functionality, every standard box PC can easily be customized. Again, modularity of the 19” IPCs is higher. Besides pluggable CompactPCI / Serial peripheral boards, PCI and PCI Express slots are also supported, as well as the possibility to plug more than one power supply. Ethernet switch functionality is typically available as an already integrated function in a box PC or IPC – or as a separate modular and configurable device.
Meeting Industrial Requirements
Typical I/O functions of our industrial systems include analog and binary I/O, Ethernet, wireless connectivity, and RAID storage. Industrial communication interfaces are supported using CANopen, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS and Real-Time-Ethernet (EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, Modbus, POWERLINK, PROFINET, SERCOS, Varan).
Rugged Computing Solutions for Harsh Environments – Typically MEN
MEN develops and produces standard and custom computing solutions that employ the highest technology levels.
In the respective markets, products may environmentally comply with the EN 50155 railway standard, the DO-160G aerospace standard and the ISO 7637-2 (E-mark) automotive standard. Products for safety-critical applications are developed according to railway standards EN 50126, EN 50128 and EN 50129 in order to reach safety integrity levels SIL 1 to SIL 4 - or according to avionics standards RTCA DO-254 and DO-178B in order to reach safety levels DAL-E up to DAL-A. MEN is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and 14001 as well as EN/AS 9100 (aerospace) and IRIS (transportation). MEN products are available up to 10 years and more, thanks to MEN's superior obsolescence management.
