At present, the communication standards that are applied in the rail industry include WTB (Wired Train Bus), MVB (Multifunction Vehicle Bus), and CAN serial networking. However, these conventional standards have several disadvantages, such as insufficient bandwidth and limited abilities to support multiple services. For this reason, railway communication systems are now turning to IP-based solutions for higher operational efficiency and easier maintenance.
In response to the rising market trend, Moxa has taken the lead in the implementation of IP-based technologies for rolling stock and trackside applications, with emphasis on data acquisition and condition monitoring. Our solutions include rugged, modular RTU controllers and Ethernet remote I/Os, both of which are EN 50155/50121 certified for harsh environments.
