Oct 2013 - EN50155 certified Core i7 embedded Computer for Railway Applications


The new PIP3x product is an EN50155 Class Tx certified rugged, highly flexible, and fanless embedded computer solution, using the 3rd. Generation Intel Core i7 and Celeron CPU. The PIP3x Family products have specifically been developed for the use in rugged applications such as Railway, Maritime, or Defense. For this solution, MPL uses the latest low power consumption and long-term available CPUs out of the Intel embedded road-map.

The PIP3x Family is completely designed from scratch to insure highest reliability. The design is based on MPL's 28 years of experience in the field of low power engineering. The PIP form factor has been introduced more then 17 years ago and still remains in the same size and conception. The real advantage for the customers is the fact, that the products are designed for long-term availability. To ensure this, MPL designs and manufacturers the products 100% in Switzerland. All components are stocked at MPL Switzerland to guarantee that the products can be supported and repaired, even years after EOL for a product.
