KONTRAC TCMS – Train Control and Management System is our proprietary HW&SW platform for train control and management systems. It is designed as a modular and scalable solution that can be highly customized to individual customers’ requirements. In-vehicle communication network, based on the CAN bus, RS485, Ethernet, or MVB, allows seamless onboard communication between all intelligent units. Depending on vehicle type and requirements, a Wired Train Bus (WTB) is used for communication between the vehicles in multiple compositions.
Thanks to the communication network, KONTRAC TCMS is a distributed system with the following sub-systems:
Intelligent Controller (ICNT) is the system which driver uses to move the vehicle, speed-up or slow down the vehicle and stop the vehicle.
Universal energy metering system for all railway vehicles.
Human-machine interface can be found in all vehicles equipped with KONTRAC TCMS.
KONTRAC Distibuted I/O
compact, reliable, modular and robust platform designed for industrial control applications.
Vehicle Control Unit, the vehicle main control system.
Modular platform allows integration in the variety of rail vehicles, tram cars, electric and diesel-electric trains, and locomotives. KONTRAC TCMS platform is one of few on the market which fully supports old vehicle modernization, such as an old diode or thyristor locomotives.
We are successfully cooperating with system integrators to make the old locomotives ready for the next 20-30 years of operation. After the modernization, they are equipped with advanced, digital control and DMI unit.
