KT8 - Modular Train Control System Extension, 8 Cards

The KT8 is a build-to-order system which is delivered fully operational with QNX and PACY (Process Data Framework for Cyclic Applications) - including all necessary drivers.
It consists of the 40 HP basic system including backplane and mounting rails and provides:

  • 1 slot for I/O head
  • 8 menTCS I/O board slots

The barebone configuration comprises the standard, non-configurable I/O head component including the real-time Ethernet connection and PSU. I/O boards are completely configurable. The Technical Data list all components that can be implemented in the system. Choose the functionality you need and contact MEN's sales team to verify which board combinations are feasible.
