RAIL-CEC Embedded Computer

Dättwil, Switzerland (PRWEB) August 21, 2014

The heart of the CEC are the low power consumption ATOM CPUs from Intel. They are are from Intel's embedded program which guarantees a long-term availability for the CPU. MPL products are typically being offered for at least 10 years after its first introduction.

The solution comes without any cable connection and makes it ideal for for the use in rugged applications such as Railway, Maritime, Aerospace, or Defense. Even HDD or SSD are connected without the use of a connector cable.

CECs are very universal as they come with 2 serial lines, up to 7 USB ports, PC/2 DVI, and up to 4 GigeE interfaces with M12 connectors. They can be expanded internally over a miniPCIe with WLAN, Fieldbus (Profibus, CAN, ...), or any other miniPCIe module.

The input range is 9 -36 VDC and polarity protected. The unit can be wall mounted with a flange or via DIN-Rail mounting. Needless to say that the solution is available with optional bonding and coating.

Additional unique features are:

  • Compact size 62.0 x 162.1 x 118mm (W x H x D)
  • Class Tx certified -40°C to +85°C
  • Up to 2GB DDR2 memory
  • SATA IF for DOM and 2.5" disk
  • Long-term availability
  • BIOS customization & OEM solutions possible

The CEC units are developed in Switzerland based on more then 29 years company tradition with a huge know how in lowest power consumption and extended temperature operation. According to the company slogan "MPL High-Tech • Made in Switzerland", all products are 100% produced in Switzerland by MPL AG.
