The BL72E is a robust box PC with strong communication and storage abilities. It’s the perfect choice for rail and public transportation markets particularly for on-board applications such as Internet-on-Board, positioning via GNSS, CCTV / recording, passenger entertainment and many others.
Multi-Talent for Wireless Communication and Data Storage
The BL72E is a fanless, maintenance-free box computer for embedded applications in transportation.
It is based on AMD’s Ryzen V1000 APU family featuring excellent power-per-watt performance and a Radeon Vega next-generation 3D graphics engine. With up to four high-performance processor cores and AMD virtualization support, and up to 32 GB soldered-down DDR4 SDRAM, the BL72E offers powerful computing for handling data intensive work loads.
Versatile Possibilities for Wireless Communication
To provide Internet connection for passengers or locating the vehicle, many wireless options are available. This includes a GNSS positioning interface, two PCI Express Mini Card slots and two M.2 slots for implementing mobile service standards up to 4G LTE or WLAN IEEE 802.11, and derivates.
A total of eight externally accessible micro-SIM card slots are available as well. If this is not enough, the box can be delivered with a second I/O board offering additional LTE modems, storage and I/O.
For IoT or Storage-Intensive Applications
The BL72E offers a SATA HDD/SSD shuttle providing the storage capacity necessary for entertainment servers or video surveillance systems, plus eMMC memory and an M.2 slot for PCIe based storage (NVMe).
A Multitude of I/O
The BL72E supports one DisplayPort interface with maximum 4K resolution. A multitude of other I/O is available, including four Gigabit Ethernet, audio, two USB 3.0, RS232, RS422/RS485, IBIS, digital inputs and outputs. An MVB master or slave interface can optionally be implemented.
Robust and Railway-Ready
The rugged box PC comes with a class S2 wide range power supply and complies to EN 50155.
Its rugged aluminum housing with cooling fins serves as a heat sink and provides conduction cooling. This allows fanless operation at temperatures from -40 °C to +70 °C (+85 °C for up to 10 minutes).
