Exhibitor profile


Born more than 20 years ago in Bologna as a spin-off of the University, Sadel is now the leading company in Italy in On Board Passenger Information Systems, both in trains and in metros. In fact, not only all the High Speed trains, but also 98% of the trains circulating in Italy are equipped with Sadel’s products ansystems, with a total of some 30.000 devices in operation.
The company employs 40+ people, half of them with University degree. Their combined skills and competences, in Electronics, Mechanics and Software, allow Sadel to conceive, design and deliver fully integrated end-to-end solutions and to maintain them over time.
Rooted in the well known “Mechatronics District” of Bologna, Sadel’s leans upon first-class companies to manufacture its products, keeping the highest level of performance and reliability.
8% of revenues is devoted annually to Research and Development, thus fostering continuous innovation, like
OB/Director and the On Board Powerline line. The former, acting as a stable, continuous over-the-air gateway between train and ground, not only innovates and fully automates the Passenger Information Systems, but also delivers a host of real IoT applications, designed to ease the life of passengers and that of the train itself. The second, bringing a well-known ground technology to meet the strict railway regulations, allows to build full Ethernet train networks (narrowband and broadband) without rewiring, thus giving mid-life trains a new cost-effective way to attain the modern standards for passenger information and comfort.
SME size and tight process integration allow Sadel to quickly customize its solutions to different models and makes of train and metro. Up to now, more than 20 train models from the principal manufacturers (Alstom, Bombardier, Ansaldo-Breda, Hitachi, Stadler, PESA, etc.) are equipped with the company’s products.
These are also the reasons why Almaviva chose Sadel as its strategic partner in the far-sighted project of revamping all the regional trains circulating in Italy, which Almaviva itself is leading, as the outsourcer of Trenitalia, the State railway operator in Italy.
