Main Server with Intel XEON D for menRDC
menRDC Railway Data Center
menRDC is the mobile office IT computer for virtually all non-vital train applications. It is a general purpose, modular platform. The hardware of menRDC is solely based on standard technologies, supporting a flexible and scalable configuration of the end system with plug-and-play wireless communication channels, storage extensions, connectivity to other train computers, or I/O interfaces to sensors and actuators. Other standard systems offered as part of menRDC are the MH70S data storage system and the NH30 Managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch.
High-Performance CPU, Virtualization and Security
The system is based on a high-performance Intel Xeon-D processor. Being a virtualization platform, it supports Intel VT-x and VT-d technology to virtualize several functions, e.g., surveillance or ticketing. The software can be developed without hardware which reduces the development time. It also supports a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for security implemented through cryptography, as well as an error-correcting code (ECC) memory, board and system management control, and a watchdog timer to ensure reliability.
The system consists of a modular 40 HP CompactPCI Serial system which can be wall or rack-mounted. The system is cooled by using an additional fan tray at the bottom of the system. Cooling is independent of the mounting position.
The PC offers a multitude of configuration possibilities resulting in a fast time-to-market.
Designed for Harsh Environments
The MH70R is designed for operation in a -40°C to +70°C temperature range according to EN 50155 class TX. The system withstands shock and vibration for reliable operation and a longer product life-time.
With a guaranteed standard life-time of 7 years the MH70R facilitates the client's life-cycle management by making the system available at least for this time period.
