Rugged Computing Platforms

The Advantech Design & Manufacturing Services Embedded Computing team provides a wide range of rugged computing platforms, including rolling stock controllers, rugged computing systems, and hardware acceleration computing systems. Rugged computing systems feature dedicated hardware and software designed and built to operate under harsh conditions. These systems qualify to Railway & MIL rugged performance standards for such parameters as shock and vibration, and extended operating temperature range. They are ideally suited for service in extreme environments.

Product Categories

  • Rolling Stock Controller

    Rolling stock controllers fulfill the demands of applications dealing with automatic train operation, in-train surveillance, passenger information, and multimedia. All systems can be automatically monitored by the control center, whether they be Driver Machine Interfaces, or Network Video Recorders, Passenger Information Systems, or Multimedia & Entertainment Systems.

    • EN50155 Certified Box PC

      EN50155 certification indicates that a number of factors have been controlled to ensure that electronic systems stay well within parameters, even in extreme environments. Those factors break down into four categories: environmental, EMC, safety, and performance. Each category has its own subsections. The environmental test consists of vibration, shock, cooling, and dry heat, for example. When rolling stock is operating, it may face very different indoor/outdoor scenarios and needs to withstand these harsh conditions, as well as helping drivers stay informed about the status of the train. Furthermore, the controller is equipped with M12 connectors for LAN/Serial/USB/Power and that not only helps guarantee that it’s waterproof (with sealed connectivity), but also ensures security and reliability; connections stay tight even under heavy vibration.
    • Expansion I/O Modules

      These expansion modules are designed to increase the functions of ARS-2510/ARS-2110 box PCs. The standard offerings include 2.5” SSD SATA driver carrier, dual COM port modules, and dual CAN port modules. For larger-volume orders, users can specify their own customized modules, and build systems that offer powerful, best-fit, custom solutions.
    • EN 50155 Certified Panel PC

      The Advantech ARS-P series is fanless Passenger Information System, EN 50155 certified specially for rolling stock applications. It features stretched LCD panel, with high brightness to ensure easy readability even in light-insufficient environments. It serves as a reliable platform to provide passenger information on wide versatility of vehicles, such as trains and trams.
  • Rugged Computing System

    A ruggedized system is a computer specifically built to operate reliably in extreme usage environments and conditions, such as strong vibrations, wide range temperatures and wet or dusty conditions. It delivers quality, durability, reliability, compatibility, high performance and long product lifecycle in field-proven application. Unique environments offer different and specific attacks to computing systems, which are used to collection, computing, & data transmission to reach the goal of intelligent management and monitoring.

    • Rugged Box PC

      A rugged box PC is a necessity when performance and reliability are needed in harsh environments, such as extreme weather, or over bumpy ground, high humidity, water invasion, or the corrosive conditions of heavy salt fog. To fulfill these requirements, the systems are designed to meet MIL-810G military specifications for drops, vibration, immersion, and temperature extremes and with IP65 to IP68 ratings, they are protected against water and dust.
