Comprehensive TCMS solution for passenger electric multiple units
TCMS (Train Control and Management System) for electric multiple units (EMU) by ŠKODA DIGITAL s.r.o. is a proprietary modular comprehensive solution of the control and management system. We have developed this system to be able to offer our clients not only the necessary HW components, but also complete and functional TCMS solution including control, communication, visualisation and diagnostics software based on our extensive experience and knowledge gained from successful implementation of many projects. The full solution includes the supply of the control and diagnostics systems, as well as provision of warranty and after-warranty service.
This type of TCMS enables control of all technologies installed in electric passenger railway vehicles, e.g. traction drive control, braking systems, slip protection system and multi-element control, but also all other subsystems such as automatic couplings, pantographs, doors, stairs, train lighting, fire protection systems, heating and air conditioning, ISC – passenger information system, CCTV camera system, safety elements, registrars, toilets, etc. The system is structured as decentralised with distributed input and output units.
TCMS for passenger electric multiple units is a highly robust, modular solution which may be configured to customer needs and specifications. This control and management system contains modules for management of the communication network, remote diagnostics modules, and also our own operator HMI panels that visualise the management and diagnostics processes. An important feature of this solution is the option to utilise redundant deployment of individual components. Both source and function modules may work in redundant mode; in the event of a failure of one module the redundant module automatically takes over.
The features, reliability and the entire SW solution of TCMS and components produced by ŠKODA DIGITAL s.r.o. have been proven thanks to their implementation in many different vehicles. Our TCMS is a robust system with excellent heat resistance, which makes it suitable for the extreme operating and climatic conditions of the rail industry.
