This DIN rail modular system is a combination unit, containing the DIN-Rail Modular Gateway Computer MC50I and the DIN-Rail Wireless Communication Component ME1.
Wireless Communication Functions
For GPS/GLONASS functions, the system has an onboard GNSS receiver which is connected via antenna connector. The ME1 brings two M.2 slots for high-speed LTE modems (LTE Advanced or LTE) into the system. For each M.2 slot, two front-accessible micro-SIM card slots are available. The PCI Express Mini Card slot is prepared for adding a WLAN module. The wireless communication features make the system suitable for use as an IoT gateway or for predictive maintenance.
Low Power CPU for IoT/Network Applications
The MC50I is a low power gateway computer for embedded applications in industrial automation. The computing platform features an Intel Atom E3900 series CPU with low power dissipation and scalability in performance and memory. The system provides three Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 and two USB 3.0 interfaces, e.g., for communication. For video output, a DisplayPort 1.2a interface is available. The D-Sub connector provides serial interfaces RS422/485 and RS232, for, e.g., console connection.
Power Saving Design and Security Features
The board management controller on the MC50I provides enhanced reliability and reduced downtime. The Trusted Platform Module supports security and encryption features. With the ignition switch for remote control of booting and shutdown, the platform provides additional features for power saving.
Compact Housing and Versatile Mounting
Each module has a compact aluminum housing with cooling fins allowing fanless operation. Various mounting options facilitate the integration of the system into an existing environment. The 35 mm DIN-rail mounting offers space saving mounting on a single rail. Wall mounting and mounting in a 19" rack using adaption brackets are an option.
In-Vehicle Qualified and Long-Term Availability
The system is qualified for rolling stock. Long-term availability of 10 years from product start minimizes life-cycle management by making the system available at least for this period of time.
