Product description

KONTRAC Train Control and Management System – TCMS is designed as a modular and scalable solution which can be highly customized to individual customers’ requirements. In-vehicle communication network, based on CAN bus, RS485, Ethernet or MVB, allows seamless on-board 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.

KONTRAC TCMS is a distributed system with the following sub-systems:
›› KONTRAC Vehicle Control Unit - VCU
›› KONTRAC Distributed I/O
›› KONTRAC Driver-Machine Interface - DMI
›› KONTRAC Energy Metering System - EMS
›› KONTRAC Intelligent Controller – ICNT

KONTRAC Vehicle Control Unit - VCU is responsible for control, measuring, sequencing, protection, supervision, and communication tasks in the whole vehicle. VCU can be delivered in different configurations to match every vehicle.

KONTRAC Distributed I/O is covered by compact, reliable, modular and robust platforms (VISK, CISK and SafeVISK) designed for railway and industrial control applications. It is used for collecting, processing, and dissemination of digital and analog signals.

KONTRAC Driver-Machine Interface – DMI (HMI) is designed for processor-intensive graphic and video application fulfilling the requirement for operating temperature range: -40 to +85 oC. It can be implemented in different dimensions according to customer requirements. Depending on configuration and requirements, a vehicle can have one or more DMIs installed. They can work in redundant configuration, e.g., in trains, where typically 3 DMIs are installed. Modular design allows a customer to make his own configuration. GrapDisplay – easy-to-use graphical interface for layout design is extremely fast and intuitive way for programming layouts. Key characteristic of DMI are:
  • TFT display QVGA resolution, LED backlight, automatic dimming, optional resistive touch screen
  • UIC612 layout
  • IP65 (front), IP42 (side and back)
  • Interfaces: RS232, RS485, CAN/CAN Open x 2, Ethernet, mPCI Express for MVB, GSM, GPS, WiFi, HDMI, digital audio
  • Video display IP cameras
  • Operating temperature range: -40 to +85 oC
KONTRAC Energy Metering System – EMS is a universal energy metering system for all railway vehicles. It can be easily adapted to different series of trains and locomotives. All components of the system are developed and certified according to EN 50463 international standard.

KONTRAC Intelligent Controller – ICNT accepts all driver inputs, processes them and sends them to other control units by means of the so-called “X-by-wire” principle. Simply, this is the system which driver uses to move the vehicle, speed-up or slow down the vehicle and stop the vehicle.

KONTRAC SafeHMI is human-machine interface (HMI) assessed by TÜV SÜD for the highest Safety Integrity Level SIL4 according to CENELEC standards EN 50126-1/EN 50128/EN 50129. It can be used in railway or industrial applications.
