y infrastructure we mean (highways) roads, railways, airports, ports, water management, gas transport or sewerage. To guarantee a safe and reliable infrastructure, these objects are controlled by embedded computer technology.
Arcobel Embedded Solutions develops customer-specific solutions focused on the requirements of the relevant application. Our remote monitoring systems are being used for the most diverse applications. These solutions contribute to public safety and an efficient infrastructure.
In cooperation with our suppliers, we have developed redundant industrial PCs for various infrastructure projects. These systems can be supplied for a long time and are provided with embedded components tailored to the application in question.
Our smart embedded computer technology, for example, ensures better traffic flow on Dutch roads. Our security solutions ensure your and our safety at international airports. Thanks to our in-house developed track & trace technology, railway companies can easily locate their equipment. Water boards make use of our intelligent embedded computer systems to achieve optimum groundwater management.
The industrial PCs used are fanless, ruggedized and have a high temperature range. Power supplies are unstable in certain situations or not available in abundance. PoE or a UPS are frequently used in such circumstances.
We develop such customer-specific solutions in collaboration with a select group of innovative suppliers of embedded products. These manufacturers are able to deliver your unique configuration for years to come. For each project our Engineers already take into account the correct selection of components and manufacturers.
If you want to know more about our infrastructure projects or what we could do for you in this area, then please contact us. We are happy to talk to you about the possibilities for your IT project.
Monitoring Soil Activity
Soil activity in Indonesia is monitored continually so that landslides can be predicted. Highly sensitive equipment is installed deep in the jungle and is checked and read on average once per 16 months. The computers used for this are supplied by our Swiss manufacturer MPL and are energy efficient, compact and suitable for operating in an extremely humid environment.
Digital Ring Scans all Cars
Since 2008, Amsterdam has been using 53 cameras at all the entrances to the city to ban heavily polluting vehicles from the city and thus improve air quality. The system is only activated when there is a “hit”: data from other road users is not recorded. These cameras are managed by something known as the PIP22 series of embedded computers from the Swiss company MPL. MPL and this series were chosen for this because of their reliability and subsequent availability. The systems work in temperatures ranging from -40 °C to + 75 °C. The systems maintenance budget has ultimately been reduced by 50% simply because the system does not fail.
Gas Flow Meter
For one of our clients in the gas industry we developed a redundant system for monitoring gas supply. The transport of gas cannot and should not be halted. This means that measuring the quantity of gas should always be guaranteed. This is why the redundant system with an internal UPS was developed. The system that we developed with our supplier MPL can be delivered in the same form for 10 years, and for this client in particular, it has Hot Swap RAID on board and dual video output.
