GE’s RXi-XR IPC serves railway control systems
By Renée Francoeur
January 19, 2016 – GE says the RXi-XR Industrial PC (IPC) from its Automation & Controls solutions will help ensure railway control systems “maintain reliable operation” as it provides transportation systems—such as inner-city, monorail and regional trains—with a rugged computer, capable of functioning in the demanding and harsh environments.
The RXi-XR IPC features fanless, solid-state design and industrial-strength components, GE says, to meet EN50155 standards for electromagnetic, temperature, shock and vibration compatibility in railway applications. The IPC’s design also meets the IP67 rating for dust and moisture protection.
MI2 connectors and an Intel Core i7 processor at 1.7GHz or an Intel Celeron processor (at 1.4 GHz) make up the IPC and both the CPU and memory are soldered to the board.
