As a SIL 4 certifiable railway computer, the 3U CompactPCI® F75P incorporates a safe QNX® BSP and will serve as the heart of the MEN Train Control System (MTCS), currently under development.

The MEN Train Control System (MTCS) is a freely programmable system for safety critical railway applications. It is configurable to the final application from single functions to the main train control, providing SIL 4-certified components for both hardware and software.

It provides communication via real-time Ethernet and a connection to typical railway fieldbusses like CANopen, MVB, PROFIBUS, etc. The MTCS consists of the controller system MH50C and up to 63 I/O boxes, if required.
