Axiomtek’s Modular EN 50155 Railway Computer for Driver Machine Interface Applications – the tBOX510-518-FL

Axiomtek – a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development and manufacture of series of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency – is pleased to announce the tBOX510-518-FL, its new modular fanless railway computer with EN 50155, EN 60950-1, CE (Class A) and FCC (Class A) certifications and compliant with EN 50124 for railway-related applications. The rugged railway box PC is built to withstand harsh operating environments with a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +70°C and vibration endurance for up to 3Grms with SSD. Thanks to overcurrent, overvoltage, under-voltage and reverse polarity protection as well as 24V to 110V DC wide voltage input support, this heavy-duty embedded computer is suitable for rugged industrial and railway applications with varying voltage input requirements. In addition, the tBOX510-518-FL has an optional Plug-in I/O Module (PIM) slot to meet different customization requirements.

The fanless tBOX510-518-FL is powered by the 7th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 (code name: Kaby Lake) or Celeron® processor 3965U. The high-performance embedded system comes with multi-functional expansion slots, modular design and abundant single-sided I/O connectors. Its rugged and ultra-slim structure ensures easy installation in limited space but requiring I/O flexibility and enhanced performance. The tBOX510-518-FL is an ideal solution for data transmission in train control and rail signaling.

“Axiomtek is dedicated to designing and manufacturing products that specifically cater to rolling stock applications for many years. Our tBOX510-518-FL is specially designed for the driver machine interface (DMI) in the communications-based train control (CBTC) system installed in a locomotive. This rugged railway embedded system provides control, monitoring and diagnostics over the train and its subsystems,” said Sharon Huang, the product manager of Product PM Division at Axiomtek. “More importantly, the rugged tBOX510-518-FL supports an optional function of 10ms interruption to protect the system against unexpected power outage or power source change to meet the requirements of EN 50155 S2. As a communication gateway system, the tBOX510-518-FL delivers enhanced flexibility, reliability and stability for intelligent railway applications.”

The tBOX510-518-FL has one DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM slot for up to 16GB of memory. It has flexible wireless communication options - with two full-sized PCI Express Mini Card slots and one external SIM card slot. The I/O interfaces of this fanless box system are single-sided design for easy access and maintenance. The multiple I/O interfaces include one DB9 serial console or RS-232/422/485, two Gigabit LANs with Intel® Ethernet controller I210-IT, one M12 A-code USB 2.0 port, one HDMI port, one VGA port, an optional Plug-in I/O Module slot, one terminal block isolated DIO (4-in/4-out) port, one M12 power input connector, one reset button and four antenna openings. For diverse applications with limited space that still demand rich I/O connectivity, the tBOX510-518-FL’s compact design offers flexible configuration that dramatically simplifies deployment. Moreover, the high-performance embedded system supports one swappable 2.5-inch SATA drive bay and one CFast™ for enhanced storage capacity. The tBOX510-518-FL is compatible with Windows® 10 and Linux.

Axiomtek’s new tBOX510-518-FL will be available in August 2020. For more product information or pricing, please visit our global website at or contact one of our sales representatives at
