Semi-customized 19-inch computer as control system
Interconnected traffic and information systems are a prerequisite in order to keep regional, long-distance and cargo rail traffic competitive in future. High-performance 19-inch industrial PCs in the control rooms handle the switch and signal control as well as monitor the signal box. The high-end system is based on the state-of-the-art Intel® Core™ processor family with high computing and graphic power.
The 2-unit high 19-inch computer has four free slots that can integrate as many as four RAID-conform HDDs (hard disk drives). Primary emphasis is placed on the robustness as well as the redundant ventilation and power supply of the IPC. The fans and the dust filter can be replaced during operation (hot-plug).
