TEMPE, Ariz. – Artesyn Embedded Technologies in Tempe, Ariz., is introducing the rugged ControlSafe Carborne Platform commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) embedded computing system for rail command and control applications.

Housed in a compact 4U chassis with front access I/O and a DC power supply, the ControlSafe Carborne Platform can accommodate as many as 12 I/O modules and a variety of I/O types. The ControlSafe Carborne Platform is for deployment in safety application environments.

Designed for onboard applications such as automatic train protection (ATP), automatic train operation (ATO), and positive train control (PTC), the rugged computer also can be used in wayside train control and rail signaling implementations.

The ControlSafe Carborne Platform uses the same safety architecture and technologies as Artesyn's ControlSafe Platform and ControlSafe Expansion Box Platform, to provide an integrated and cost-effective solution for rail system integrators and rail application providers.

The first two platforms in the portfolio have been both certified to SIL4, while SIL4 certification of the ControlSafe Carborne Platform is anticipated to be complete this fall.

The ControlSafe Carborne Platform is designed as a common base platform to enable a variety of applications through the integration of Artesyn IOU modules.
