ADLINK ETX modules used in train safety monitoring system to provide reliable remote monitoring.

With the increasing deployment of high-speed transportation systems worldwide, railcar security monitoring is of paramount importance in improving the precision and safety of rail travel. This is critical for the rail industry, considering the impact of a potential accident or incident.

Effective safety monitoring requires a remote monitoring system to detect and analyse the status of rolling stock and send the information to onboard train operators and an off-site central control room to allow for instant reactions to abnormal situations or safety hazards.

ADLINK's ETX computer-on-modules is a range that meets the connectivity, ruggedness, manageability, longevity and scalability needs of rail transportation applications. ADLINK's ETX-BT module provides two high speed serial buses supporting Control Area Network (CAN) protocol to deliver a high degree of data consistency with error detection mechanisms. The ETXBT also provides Gigabit Ethernet via an onboard connector to enable super fast data transmission. ADLINK, as one of the most active players in ETX market, provides continuing support for the form factor by revamping their ETX product range with the latest technologies. System developers can use any of these new modules as a drop-in replacement to easily upgrade older systems at minimum cost and maximum scalability to extend longevity.

ADLINK's ETX modules deliver all the legacy features of this form factor, as well as the advantages of the latest highspeed interfaces and ADLINK's own technologies. SEMA allows system operators to remotely monitor the hardware and operating status of all onboard units and administer maintenance and repair tasks with ADLINK's SEMA Cloud taking remote manageability a step further by pushing data to the user's cloud server via any kind of TCP/IP connection allowing easy access to data and analytics on any device.
