A new IP65-rated, maintenance-free box computer is suitable for data acquisition in extreme environments throughout a number of in-vehicle applications, such as trains, commercial vehicles, mobile machines and ships. On the BC50R from MEN Micro, all external interfaces, including USB, digital I/O, Gigabit Ethernet, CAN bus and legacy serial I/O, are implemented on rugged M12 connectors for reliable data transmission. Offering a protection class of IP65, the new box computer is certifiable to EN 50155 (railway) or EN 60945 (shipping) and conforms to ISO 7637-2 (E-mark for automotive).

The BC50R starts with a powerful, energy-efficient T48N AMD Embedded G-Series APU running at 1.4 GHz. Various CPU/GPU options combine with a wide selection of external interfaces, connected via separate graphics and I/O interface boards within the system, to provide an extremely flexible system quickly tailored to a vast number of applications.

Inside the system, two PCI Express Mini card slots with two SIM card slots offer WLAN, GPS, other GNSS or 3G/4G functionality. The necessary antenna connectors can be made available at the front panel. The BC50R is equipped with 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM and offers SD card and mSATA slots. Additional memory resources include 64 KB of L1 cache and 512 KB of L2 cache. An extremely robust aluminum housing protects the internal electronics, and the system’s fanless design operates at temperatures from -40°C to +70°C (+85°C for up to 10 minutes).

The new box PC supports either a 24 VDC and 36 VDC nom. (10 V to 50.4 V) class S2 power supply in compliance with EN 50155 or power supplies with a nominal input voltage of 24 V that either comply with ISO 7637-2 or EN 60945.
