Control, safety and communication systems

A wide variety of control and safety technology components are required for the safe and efficient operation of railways.

Control and safety systems

A distinction is made between the interlocking technology and the train control system. Both interlock and ensure that the trains can run on the existing track system according to the timetable and trouble-free.

What we can do for you:

We offer the following services in the area of "Installations of train control systems":

  • Assembly of switch drives and their safety components
  • Level crossing components (magnetic rail contacts, vehicle sensors, wheel sensors)
  • ETCS (European Train Control System) equipment: GSM-R equipment, balise assembly

Control and automation systems

The Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group has developed a modular control technology for monitoring and controlling electrical systems. This highly scalable system based on modern automation components can be easily integrated into existing customer systems. We implement a wide variety of communication protocols for a telecontrol connection. A modern visualisation solution, which can be seamlessly integrated into the overall system, is used as a remote operating or monitoring level. The process connection for local acquisition of information and implementation of control commands is carried out by using "intelligent terminals" or remote automation units with their own logic, adapted to the respective application.

What we can do for you:

  • Tunnel control systems:
    The monitoring of tunnel sections requires a wide variety of monitoring and control systems - e.g. doors/gates, air conditioning systems, pumps, ventilation systems and lighting components that are centrally managed and monitored.

Telecommunication systems

Communication systems are of great importance for safety, especially in tunnels. They require emergency telephones, landline telephones, alarm systems, radio systems (analogue, digital), network technology or the GSM/UMTS/LTE network. If an ETCS Level II train protection system is installed, the GSM-R network is used to transmit data to the driver's cab.

The Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group plans and supplies the complete systems for data transmission or communication in the railway area, based on all currently available communication technologies, whether copper, optical fibre or radio technology.
