Intelligent Railway Travel with AAEON Boxer PCs from RDS

The AEV-6356/357VS Boxer PCs are primarily chosen for their media playing, monitoring, communication and video surveillance capabilities. These EN50155T compliant products help train crews to monitor different operating parameters of the train such as cabin temperature, door statuses and surveillance, as well communicate with external networks. Take a look at even more exciting features of these PCs…

Technologies such as Wi-Fi and infotainment systems are now modern era necessities. Hardware needs to be able to cope with rugged environments, be extremely dependable and user-friendly which is where the AAEON AEV-6356/357VS Boxer PCs come in.

The AEV-6356, Railway Box PC and the AEV-357VS Embedded Computer, have many features which include Intel®Core i7-3517UE, EN50155Tx Certified, Isolation RS-232/422/485 x 1/Power (OVP/LVP/SCP). They make control easy with Isolation Digital Input x 4/6 + Digital Output x 2. Offer wireless solutions with Wi-Fi/3G/GPS and have rugged M12 Connectors for LAN/Serial/USB/Power

The AEV-6356/357VS Boxer PCs are primarily chosen for their media playing, monitoring, communication and video surveillance capabilities. These EN50155T compliant products help train crews to monitor different operating parameters of the train such as cabin temperature, door statuses and surveillance, as well communicate with external networks.

The PCs ability for hot plugging and hot-swapping Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) is a real advantage to rail operators. If there is a need to remove the HDD while the system is still running the software will send a signal to halt all the disk’s operations and, because of the RAID 1, 5 10 technology, all stored data will be backed up.

Complex wiring is a thing of the past with these AAEON PCs, as all the devices are linked with connections that strictly conform to TCP/IP protocols.TCP/IP protocols also allow the use of AAEON’s remote display technology, configurations intended for multiple devices of a single type installed in various parts of the train can be changed universall at the PC controller.

Working alongside AAEON, RDS can help and advice on solutions to your particular applications, contact us today on 01959 563345 or email: peter.marchant@review-displays.co.uk
