Since its foundation in 1982, MEN develops and produces a robust range of highly reliable embedded COTS cards and industrial PCs that are used under extreme environmental conditions in mobile, industrial and safety-critical applications.
MEN's rugged and reliable embedded computers withstand harsh environments with extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, dust, humidity and chemical influence. The electronics are designed for -40 to +85°C, can mostly operated without maintenance-intensive fans by using conduction cooling technology, provide EMC protection, firmly soldered components, use conformal coating, etc.
In addition to environmental qualification, MEN also designs functional safe computers using e.g. redundant, diverse and deterministic system or board designs. They are developed according to functional safety standards for railways, avionics or industrial automation (EN 50128/50129, DO-254, IEC 61508) and reach the highest safety levels, e.g. SIL 4 in railways or DAL-A for avionics.
