Comprehensive TCMS solution for electric and diesel-electric locomotives

Train Control and Management Systems (TCMS) for electric and diesel-electric locomotives made by ŠKODA DIGITAL s.r.o. is a proprietary, comprehensive modular solution of the control and management system. We have developed this system in order to be able to offer our clients the necessary HW components as well as 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. The implementation of this type of control and management system under modernisation of older types of locomotives increases the efficiency of operation of those vehicles, allows for early detection and prediction of failures and lowers maintenance costs.

This type of TCMS provides control over all technologies installed in electric and diesel-electric locomotives. This system offers adaptive engine power regulation, generator control, traction engine control, braking system, slip protection, multi-element control and safety as well as many other subsystems including automatic couplings, locomotive lighting system, cooling, ventilation, pneumatic system, fire protection system , heating, air conditioning, etc. The system is structured as decentralised with distributed input and output units.

TCMS for electric and diesel-electric locomotives 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.
