Peripheral modules for the TC-6000 series

Features and Benefits

  • TC-SP04-DB44-T: 4-port software-selectable RS- 232/422/485 over DB44-F serial module
  • TC-CP02-DB-T: 2-port optically isolated CAN module
  • TC-DK10-T/TC-DK20-T: 4-socket mini PCIe card carrier module
  • TC-SW04-M12-4P-T: 4-port megabit Ethernet switch port module with M12 connector
  • TC-SW04-M12-8P-T: 4-port gigabit Ethernet switch port module with M12 connector

Overview

TC-6000 series expansion modules provide peripheral interfaces for the TC-6000 series line of railway computers.
These modules include a 4-port (without PoE) gigabit or megabit Ethernet switch module with M12 connectors, a mini PCIe card carrier module with four sockets, a serial module supporting four software-selectable RS-232/422/485 interfaces over a single DB44-F connector (cable adapter), and an optically isolated CAN module with two ports. The modules let system integrators and administrators easily add additional Ethernet ports and/or bandwidth, as well as serial, PCIe, and CAN interfaces to the TC-6000 series of train computers.
All of the TC-6000 modules are compliant with the essential sections of the EN 50155 Class TX standard, maintaining the TC-6000 series goal of offering a highly dependable computing platform suitable for a wide variety of on-board railway applications.

Railway Data Security: Building a Durable NVR Platform

In this white paper, Moxa identifies a few solutions to the key challenges railway operators face when trying to secure their data and devices against the peculiar tests of the railway environment. Taking network video recording devices as the stepping off point, we give a brief analysis of how a train's vibrations, extreme temperature fluctuations, and power supply can adversely affect device functioning and durability. The paper then goes on to consider how thoughtful engineering can eliminate these factors as a point of concern, while at the same time building strong value for the customer through carefully considered, centralized, and automated controls and failsafes.

This whitepaper discusses the various applications and subsystems to which an on-board train computer may be applied, outside of signaling and control. Most talk within the train industry focuses the vital signaling and control automation; however, today’s trains and other forms of mass transit have many more demands beyond these critical systems. Each class of train has specific requirements and needs that are defined by its on-board auxiliary automation systems. While these requirements vary according to the train environment being served, a core set of hardware requirements may be met that will allow a single, extensible computer to serve in virtually any on-board auxiliary role required. This white paper examines what these core requirements are, and shows how careful computer engineering can cut deployment and integration times for engineers tasked with building on-board train systems.
