CompactPCI serial board is designed for rail use
Designed for modern railways, the 3U CompactPCI Serial board has 16 bi-directional digital I/O channels. MEN says that the board is suited for many control functions, such as door-locking control and interior lighting.
The G403 supports a total of 16 bi-directional digital I/O channels, organised into four optically isolated groups for data transmission with four channels in each group. In addition to an accommodating configuration as either an input or output, each channel features an individual edge-triggered interrupt.
A voltage range of 14.4 to 154V DC with a current output of 1A at 24V complies with EN 50155, for immediate use in train applications, as well as making it able to handle digital I/O signals with different voltage levels and ground references.
The four front connectors use spring cage terminal blocks to reduce wiring and enable fast installation, while ensuring a secure connection.
The board has safety measures for mobile environments, like voltage and temperature supervision as well as readback of outputs and conformal coating against dust and humidity.
