With the increasing public awareness of the security issues on mass transportation systems, ORing Industrial Networking Corp has released series of industrial Ethernet switches that target at railway applications. Products such as TES-250-M12 and TPS-3082GT-M12-BP1 have been successfully applied to Taiwan Railway Association’s (TRA) Smiling Train as well as Taipei Mass Rapid Transit’s (MRT) Wenhu Line, providing passengers with a whole new travelling experience.
TRA’s six-star EMU800 Smiling Train has been officially launched earlier this year (2014.01.02, Taipei Times). This new commuter train purchased from Japan has not only offered economic ticket price, but shorten the travel time while considerately create cozy atmosphere and seats for passengers traveling on this train. Known as the “smiling train,” the locomotive of
the train is decorated with a yellow line resembling a crescent moon on the front. Both Smiling Train and Wenhu Line are embedded with ORing’s Ethernet applications—EN50155 Managed Ethernet Switches that are designed specifically for railway applications. These applications operate with double redundancy; O-Ring & Hardware Bypass, minimizing the recovery time for 250 machines to less than 10ms when the internet shuts off. With such advantage, ORing’s Etherent switches ensure passengers with best guarantee on commuting security.
One of the hottest hits for Smiling Train and Wenhu Line lies in the applications of ORing’s networking products. Through the employment of such networking system, both transportation systems have reduced the cables dispersed in each cabin and enhanced the transmission of great data. From these projects, ORing Industrial Networking has presented the public with products of great quality that are highly stable, reaching the goal of whole-line networking.
The first success story begins with TRA’s Smiling Train. Each cabin of EMU800 Smiling Train is embedded with ORing’s TES-250-M12 Light-managed Ethernet Switch. This product comes with 5 fast Ethernet ports. One of them is connected to industrial computer that operates as the media for network data transmission, controlling the digital entertainment system, Led display, VoIP phone, etc. TES-250-M12operates flexibly in wide temperature; -40~70°C, ensuring stable data transmission when the transportation system is moving at a high speed. In addition, ORing’s circular back-up system, ORing, has greatly enhanced data transmission stability by assuring no networking failure.
Another achievement could be found in MRT’s Wenhu Line. Started in 1996, the MRT connecting Wenshan and Neihu Districts (abbreviated as Wenhu Line) is the first MRT Line in Taipei. However, it was not until 2013 that the whole line was embedded with railway surveillance system. Aiming at this specific project, ORing Industrial Networking Corporation has embedded a managed PoE Ethernet switch—TPS-3082GT-M12-BP1—that are specifically designed for railway applications. TPS-3082GT-M12-BP1 has 8 of IEEE 802.3af PoE fast Ethernet ports with M12 interface connectors, each supporting 48VDC power supply that runs at 15.4 watt. Also, two of them (1 set) support Bypass Gigabit ports. PSE device offers power supply for devices (PDs) that work compatibly with IEEE 802.3af, including surveillance devices, wireless AP as well as IP phones, etc. Besides, TPS-3082GT-M12-BP1 has the best Ethernet redundant technology—O-Ring, minimizing the recovery time to less than 10ms while supporting double power supply. When facing a power shutdown, TPS-3082GT-M12-BP1 has two ports for bypass to avoid network failure that may occur to Ethernet switches. Each cabin of Wenhu Line is embedded with a TPS-3082GT-M12-BP1, connecting to 4 cameras and entertainment systems. With such surveillance, this product has greatly enhanced the traveling safety for both passengers and the cabin crew. Aside from the benefits in terms of functions, the employment of TPS-3082GT-M12 has saved a lot of spaces since products are embedded under the seats.
TPS-3082GT-M12 and TES-250-M12 support reliable network system, and have both equipped with EN50155 certification. The M12 connector within is anti-quake and totally caters to the railway needs. Products of T Series that are mentioned in above projects have shown ORing’s high quality and customized service. ORing is a company that considerately meets clients’ needs and always offers the most suitable products for each case. In cases of Wenhu Line and Smiling Train, ORing’s products have once again stepped further in network data transmission, and such success is regarded as a milestone for another project triumph!
