High-performance, fanless computer suits railway applications

Many governments and transportation companies in the world are seeking intelligent and secure rolling stock solutions to reduce traffic congestion, air pollution and commuting time between urban and rural areas. The suitable system must integrate data transmission between the train and the ground, information, sub-systems like air conditioning, door-sensing and warning, as well as passenger information system. 

To accomplish these challenging tasks in today’s rolling stock requirement, Lanner introduces its first highly-integrated 3U rail system LVR-8300, packing high-processing CPU, M12 PoE ports, EN50155 certified endurance and multiple modular expansions to operate as the brain of intelligent rail systems.

To handle complicated rolling stock tasks, LVR-8300 is built with a high-processing 4th Gen Intel Core i5 4422E CPU (Haswell). The CPU is able to handle multiple data transmissions and control the flow of information like the brain of an efficient rail system. For a less complicated rolling stock system, LVR-8300 may be optionally accompanied with Intel Celeron 2002E CPU. Built with Intel x86 open-standard, the system structure can be easily diagnosed and maintained.

Network connectivity is another essential element in today’s rolling stock system. LVR-8300 offers up to 16 M12 PoE Ethernet ports for connections with networking devices like WiFi access points and/or IP surveillance equipments. With M12 connectors, LVR-8300’s Ethernet ports can function reliably in rail environment.

Safety is a major concern and LVR-8300 has been EN50155 certified for protections against shock, vibration, temperature, humidity and surge. Lanner plans to pass the ultimate level 'TX' of EN50155 for LVR-8300 in near future.

LVR-8300 is a highly scalable system with multiple modular expansions. These expansion modules provide I/O functions including serial COM ports, Stretch S7 frame grabber for DVR, SATA/mSATA for storages, mini-PCIe with SIM card reader for 3G/4G and WiFi communications and LAN. This high-scalability nature allows LVR-8300 to be adapted in various rolling stock environments, simply by adding or removing specific modules.
