Gateway-CAN-MVB2 - Rugged Intelligent Locomotive Gateway

• CAN-enabled gateway computer supporting Multifunction Vehicle Bus (MVB)
• Rugged fanless system with shock and vibration protection
• Two redundant MVB channels
• Four isolated CAN interfaces
• Two isolated Serial interfaces (RS-232/422/485)
• IP65 dust and moisture protection
• Operates from -40 to +70 °C
• Shock handling up to 6g, Vibration up to 2g

The Gateway-CAN-MVB2 rugged computer is used to decode signals between Russian Rail Road continuous Automatic Train Control (ATC) systems with CAN interfaces such as CLUB-U, BLOK or similar devices and onboard systems utilizing Multifunction Vehicle Bus (MVB). This fanless intelligent Gateway is designed to be used in onboard safety systems installed in locomotives, high speed trains such as SAPSAN (Velaro RUS), Lastochka (Desiro RUS) and others. The system can be easily adapted to the technical requirements of different railroad vehicles.
This IP65 rated system is housed in a rugged aluminum enclosure with dual shock and vibration protection. It is based on proven PC/104 technology, and its compact design and low power makes it the ideal solution for on-board smart interface conversion.
