Kontron launched TRACe, its new family of operational computers designed specifically for the transportation market. The TRACe transportation computer
family delivers proven, rugged and feature-rich building blocks that allow design flexibility. The first platform in the Kontron family is the TRACe B304-TR, which is an EN50155-certified fanless transportation computer designed to make customization extremely easy to meet application-specific requirements. The TRACe family benefits from the inherent flexibility advantages of Kontron’s COM Express Computer-on-Module (COM) that features the Intel Atom E3845 processor with up to quad core 1.91 GHz performance. Its rugged design ensures stable operation in harsh environments and is ideal for any rolling stock application such as passenger information systems, video streaming and storage servers, security surveillance and train management systems.
The Kontron TRACe product line features high performance density and low power consumption in a small footprint, low profile design that offers integrators higher flexibility in terms of the number of available I/O. The family also provides long-term support by design based on its modularity and seamless technology insertion of the processor, storage, I/O and power supply unit. These innovative TRACe capabilities allow transportation OEMs to significantly decrease development efforts for faster time-to-market, while also reducing maintenance costs and the total cost of ownership. The second member of the family is the Kontron TRACe V304-TR, which is an EN50155-certified and tested fanless Network Video Recorder (NVR) that can record and transmit H.264 video streams making it ideally suited for rolling stock IP video surveillance.
