» Train Management System «
Train control systems must be designed to withstand the
toughest environmental conditions: extended temperature
ranges (-40°C to +85°C), humidity, vibrations and power
fl uctuations. Even heat build-up and energy absorption have to
stay within narrow ranges. Only passive cooling technologies
are permitted.
The EN50155 standard for electronic railroad applications
places heavy demand on COTS based equipment beyond just
operational characteristics. The standard assumes that electronic systems on trains will need to operate 24 hours a day
for 30 years or approximately 250,000 hours without failure.
Kontron develops and manufactures EN50155 certified products like PanelPCs, CPCI Systems or BoxPCs designed to be
used in safety critical Train Management Systems.

Ethernet Switches by Kontron
Kontron’s fully managed Ethernet Switches support the latest
network standards to connect on board units, even in redundant
mode. Highly integrated switch silicon, IPMI and SNMP management set the foundation for a robust Ethernet network.
Integrated into a train management system, the CompactPCI
or standalone Switches allow Layer 2/3 management and non
blocking packet transfer for fast and reliable communication.
Graphical User Interface
Train control systems require driver interaction to set up a
train configuration or to simply read the vehicle status, speed
and warnings. Kontron provides driver display units for the
train driver as well as intelligent displays, which can be used
in the passenger compartment. The display units are designed
according international standards, UIC612-01 and/or EN50155
and are intuitive to use. The latest Intel technology provides
long term availability, scalability and power to support high
interface speeds, redundancy and coding/decoding standards
for video and audio.
Remote I/Os
TMS / Gateway
Train Lines
Kontron’s reliable embedded solutions are used in several
installations for interlocking and control installations
worldwide, ranging from the dispatch centers through the
decentralized, unmanned remote control centers and rolling
stock. Kontron can provide the full range of embedded
computing solutions for interlocking and control in various
international railway applications such as PTC (Positive Train
Control) as well as the current ETCS (European Train Control
System), and ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System).
These embedded computing solutions are built from Kontron’s
offering of EN50155 certified boards and application ready
platforms tailored up to fully customized computers for specific
operational requirements such as natural cooling. Thanks
to Kontron rugged industrial servers, boards and modules
portfolio, OEMs focus on their dedicated application instead of
the computer details shortening their time-to-market.
Furthermore, OEMs benefit from Kontron vast pool of expertise,
covering FPGA solutions, BIOS customization, OS and driver
development as well as manufacturing test expertise along
with logistics and deployment know-how.
Delivered as turnkey platforms, ready to run OEM interlocking
application, redundant architectures are currently deploying.
Designed from Kontron vast product portfolio, they are based
on multiple OS and processor architectures to avoid systematic
errors, so as to fulfill the highest levels of SIL-X safety
Management Level
In the dispatch centers, Kontron’s rugged platforms are used
for operating and monitoring purposes, enabling operators
to graphically follow the movement of rolling stock and
enter commands to adjust control points. Kontron offers the
complete range of products to suit the specific requirements of
the visualization, processing and communication tasks.
Control Level
Redundant control systems consist of a distributed main control computer and computers at each of the stations. Kontron
supplies the equipment that allows staff to monitor and control
the position of all trains along the tracks.
A distinctive technical achievement for rail transport safety is
the computer interlocking system, which complies with highest
SIL levels. This guarantees the correct interaction of several
thousands of real-time I/Os and offers an extremely high MTBF.
Field Level
For field level control, Kontron’s proven platforms provide
highest reliability and flexibility. They collect and process
information on the position and speed of the trains as well
as the status of lights, signals and points etc. from wayside
sensors and automatically change the status of control points
as required. Providing field bus interfaces such as Profibus
or serial backup lines plus Gigabit Ethernet, they also act
as ports for cross-protocol communication and full network
integration, enabling field level parameters to be transmitted
to the dispatch centers at the management and control level.
This approach at the computer level simplifies project management, enabling Kontron’s transportation customers to concentrate on their core competences such as system of systems
certification, and ensure faster time to delivery for the
dedicated applications.
