Kontron’s KBox R-101, a control and communication platform in box PC format, is perfectly suited for demanding tasks in railroad and other harsh environments.

Kontron's new compact high-end industrial PC is based on a maintenance-free, fanless, passively cooled and IP54-compliant system concept. The system and all external interfaces are specially designed for use within railroads or other public transportation and harsh industrial environments and are therefore EN 50155 compliant.

The system is based on 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1185GRE or i5-1145GRE processors (KBox R-101-TGL) or Intel Atom® processors x6425RE or x6212RE (KBox R-101-EKL) together with a memory expansion of max. 32 GB.

With the KBox R-101, a wireless module for WiFi and Bluetooth can be operated together with a module for 5G/LTE, GSM, LPWA and GNSS, thus creating the basis for intelligent applications for both passengers and operators, e.g. Internet-On-Board, entertainment, passenger counting, predictive maintenance or real-time train positioning via GNSS.

On the front, the KBox R-101 has three Gigabit Ethernet interfaces M12 x-coded, two isolated serial I/Os - 1x RS232 and 1x RS422/485 - as well as a USB-C interface. There are also six cut-outs for antenna connections (SMA, QMA) as well as eight LEDs, which can be used for specific applications, and a power LED.

The USB-C service interface enables the operator to implement a DisplayPort and USB 3.1-based connection as well as a power supply of up to 10W for touch panels, for example, via just one cable; this facilitates commissioning as well as maintenance and debugging.

On the rear of the system behind the IP54-protected cover, there are also two USB 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort and a CFexpress interface, as well as two micro-SIM sockets. The integrated 60W wide-range power supply supports nominal voltages from 24V DC to 110V DC and also offers a hold-up time in accordance with EN50155 class S2 and a controllable ignition input.

The system is designed for operation in an extended temperature range between -40 °C and +70 °C (+85 °C for a maximum of 10 minutes) and has no moving parts.

Depending on requirements, the KBox R-101 can be expanded with additional interfaces and on-board modules, which increases investment security as future performance and interface expansions are also guaranteed.
