Moxa Launches High-performance Railway Computers
Moxa, an IRIS-certified railway communication solution provider, has launched a new series of high-performance wireless-ready railway computers, the V2406C Series.
Operators are increasingly relying on the Industrial IoT in modern transportation systems to improve safety and reduce maintenance costs as well as enhance the overall onboard experience for passengers. This involves processing and transmitting large volumes of data generated by IIoT applications and requires high computing power and reliable wireless connectivity.
The Moxa V2406C computers are compliant with EN 50155:2017 and EN 50121-4 for railway onboard and wayside applications. Designed for heavy-duty data processing tasks, the V2406C computers are built around an Intel Core i7/i5/i3 or Intel Celeron high-performance processor and come with up to 32 GB RAM, one mSATA slot, and two hot-swappable HDD/SSD for storage expansion. For reliable connectivity in train-to-ground applications, the computers are provided with two mPCIe wireless expansion slots and four SIM-card slots. These help establish redundant LTE/Wi-Fi connectivity, ensuring solid bidirectional communications between a fast-moving train and the wayside applications. In addition, preinstalled QMA cable for wireless modules can help reduce assembly efforts and ensure low RF leakage.
For connecting with onboard and wayside systems and devices, V2406C computers are equipped with a rich set of interfaces including 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 4 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, 6 DIs, 2 DOs, and 4 USB 3.0 ports. In addition, the V2406C computers provide 1 VGA video output and 1 HDMI output with 4K resolution support.
