MEN is now part of the HASELNUSS consortium of DB Netz AG, the Fraunhofer Institute, Sysgo and TU-Darmstadt for the development of hardware-based safety platforms for railway control and security technology. Thanks to its experience in the safety-critical transport sector, MEN can advise the research project on questions relating to safety architecture.
DIN Rail is a new modular concept from MEN. The system is based on robust individual components which can be combined in flexible built-to-order configurations. The DIN Rail modules are suitable – thanks to medium CPU and low power dissipation – for a variety of applications in the mobile and industrial market.
The BL72E is a robust box PC with strong communication and storage abilities. It’s the perfect choice for rail and public transportation markets particularly for on-board applications such as Internet-on-Board, positioning via GNSS, CCTV / recording, passenger entertainment and many others.
The CM50C is a low-power and space-saving Rugged COM Express module that was developed around the Intel Atom E3900 series of processors. Due to the low power consumption, the virtualization support of the processor and the safe board management controller, the robust module is a multifaceted solution for individual designs in harsh environments and safety-critical applications.
The MEN in-house test laboratory has been accredited by the German accreditation body DAkkS, according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 for EMC, environmental simulation tests and safety of electrical equipment.
With the powerful BC51M box PC, MEN expands its innovative, modular family concept. The fanless and maintenance-free device is used in graphics and memory intensive applications in trains, buses or commercial vehicles and, thanks to its numerous communication interfaces, is highly variable.
The M-Module M77N has been developed according to the ANSI Mezzanine standard and extends the carrier board by four electrically isolated serial interfaces, which can be adapted to the respective requirements by software.
MEN Mikro Elektronik GmbH and duagon Holding AG are merging to become a provider of software and hardware solutions for data processing and communication. The two companies expect their complementary product range and expertise as well as perfectly complementary sales structures to give them a leading position as manufacturers of safe computer and communication solutions in critical embedded applications.
The CB71C is an ultra-rugged COM Express module for rail, public transportation and industry applications like data acquisition, infotainment, transcoding and live 3D. It is 100% compatible with COM Express Type 6 Pin-Out and conforms to the VITA 59 standard, which specifies robust mechanics to ensure reliable operation even under the harshest environmental conditions.
The G40A is a high-performance and low-power multicore CPU platform based on an ARM Cortex A72 processor. Being full-virtualization ready, it was designed for communication-intensive applications in harsh environments, which need high data bandwidth and computing performance, e.g. in data collection applications onboard trains, in industrial or heavy-vehicle applications.
The Rugged COM Express (RCE) module CB30C has been developed according to railway standards EN 50128 (software) and EN 50129 (hardware) and has now received the SIL 2 certification from TÜV SÜD. Due to its robust design, it is particularly suitable for safety-critical applications, e.g., in rail or bus transport, but also in demanding industrial applications.
With the G233, MEN is extending its range of CompactPCI serial peripheral cards with a further feature. The card allows a simple integration of an OLED display on the front of a system for easier maintenance.
The new multicore SBC A25 from MEN offers up to 16 independent CPU cores, a variety of I/O options and an FPGA-based VMEbus interface. The board is already used by the Swiss research institute CERN in the world's largest particle accelerator due to its extreme computing power.
The CompactPCI board F405 is a multi I/O board designed specifically for use in railway applications. Thanks to the extended voltage range of -110 V to +110 V, the card can be used worldwide and in many different ways. In addition, the FPGA based design ensures long-term availability for the application.
