I/O Board up to SIL 4 for Safe Train Control

The K1 is a safe digital output card for use in an MEN Modular Train Control System. MTCS is a platform to perform safe train control functions, focusing on rolling stock applications like ATO or ATP.

K1 - I/O Board with Binary Output Functionality

The MTCS family consists of the MH50C controller unit together with the safe, SIL 4-certified CPU board F75P and up to 6 I/O cards. For more complex applications or if the places of operation are far away from each other the control unit can be extended by up to 63 remote I/O boxes.

The I/O card K1 supports the voltage ranges defined by EN 50155 for railway applications. Being usable in all types of different trains optimizes the I/O board's interoperability. Its operating temperature complies with the class TX specifications of -40 to +85 °C.

Along with its full EN 50155 compliance and long-term availability of a minimum 10 years, the K1 is a rail-ready I/O component.
