The Integrated ETBN device is a perfect combination of an IEC standard Train Backbone Node implementation with a multi-port Ethernet Consist Switch.

Thanks to this combination of backbone and consist ports, it provides an integrated and cost sensitive solution. Equipped with double switched backbone lines protected by bypass relays for train backbone use and an additional bypass relay between two Gigabit Ethernet ports at consist level, it allows more reliable consist topologies implementation.

IEC Train inauguration procedure is fully supported as well as ETBN control interface for TRDP devices. Other interfaces (SNMP, REST) are also available in order to provide a wider range of potential implementations.

On the consist side, the TTCMP© protocol provides automatic device configuration and continuous monitoring giving the customer a way to reduce commissioning and maintenance costs.

Designed to operate in harsh environmental conditions typical of rolling stock applications, the Integrated ETBN can be powered from 24 Vdc to 110 Vdc nominal voltage.

Fully EN 50155 compliant, the Integrated ETBN provides the highest level of reliability and robustness required by the railway industry.
