Comprehensive TCMS solution for metro units
TCMS (Train Control and Management System) for electric metro units 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 the necessary HW components as well as complete and functional TCMS solutions including control, communication, visualisation and diagnostics software based on our extensive experience and knowledge gained from the 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 controls all technologies installed in electric passenger metro units, e.g. traction drive control, braking systems, slip protection system but also all other subsystems such as automatic couplings, pantographs, doors, stairs, metro lighting, ventilation, fire protection systems, heating and air conditioning, etc. Master devices of this type executes control commands and communicates with the train driver, train crew, passengers and the track infrastructure. They communicate with the train subsystems and controls or reads the status of the train electrical devices. To eliminate delays and traffic flow interruptions, the system is designed as redundant and operates under hot redundancy mode. This type of TCMS also includes a BPF (auxiliary function block) unit that allows emergency running in the event of a failure or loss of power to the control system. The system is structured as decentralised with distributed input and output units.
Our TCMS for electric metro 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.
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.
