Syslogic presents its network video recorder for railway application

Syslogic has specialized in industrial computers for mobile use. The company will be showcasing its Railway Recorder Compact 8 at the InnoTrans in Berlin, the largest trade show for railway technology. The network video recorder with the Intel Atom E3845 processor complies with railway applications standard EN50155 and is particularly suitable for monitoring train security.

    Railway Recorder Compact 8

At this year’s InnoTrans, the most significant trade show for transportation technology, Syslogic will be showcasing its Railway Recorder Compact 8. The network video recorder complies with railway applications standard EN50155 and can record video streaming in the popular standard h.264. This makes the device more particularly suitable for IP video monitoring of trains.

Time-proven platform from Syslogic’s railway portfolio
The new network video recorder shares its platform with the existing embedded computers from Syslogic’s railway portfolio. In addition, it has two interchangeable memories which record the data from linked IP cameras. Depending on the application and the resolution and image frequency, the Syslogic network video recorder can store data from up to 16 IP cameras.

The Syslogic network video recorders are fitted with 2.5 inch SSD (solid state drive) storage or with hard disks. For applications relevant to security, the two memories can be redundantly switched so that, if one memory fails, a backup copy of the recorded data is available. To protect the memory from unauthorized access, they are secured with special bolts. If the special bolts are loosened, the memory can be simply pulled out with a strong tug.

Robust and long-lasting thanks to industrial design
The network video recorder, as with all embedded railway computers from Syslogic, is certified according to standard EN50155 (TX class). With this, it perfectly meets the needs of the railway industry. It is not only resistant to vibration and shocks, but also withstands extreme temperatures ranging from -40 to +70 C.

The core of the Railway Recorder is Syslogic’s own CPU board which has already been tested in other embedded computers by the manufacturer. The CPU board’s high performance with low energy consumption is impressive. The Intel Atom E3845 processor is what makes this possible. Its 1.91GHz frequency offers sufficient power to process video streams. At the same time, the processors draw a low amount of power, which allows a fanless design. This makes the maintenance-free CPU boards very robust and long-lasting.

The CPU boards in the Railway Recorder are not the only thing that meets the high requirements of the railway industry. The M12 plugs used are also very rugged and suitable for utilization under constant vibration. Furthermore, the housing for the network video recorder corresponds to protection class (IEC) IP54.

Raphael Binder, the Syslogic product manager for the railway computer says: "The new Railway Recorder Compact 8 was developed precisely for the railway market." Binder is confident that Syslogic will be able to continue expanding its market position in the very competitive railway market.

Flexible options for connecting
The Railway Recorder has multiple options for connecting. The robust M12 plugs are standardly fitted with one VGA and one RS232/422/485 connector and two LAN connectors. The device can also be supplemented with a remote module such as GSM, GPS or WiFi. For applications with analog cameras, Syslogic has compression to four channels on H.264 with an expansion board.
