Forty DMUs for Italy from Pesa – with TCMS from Selectron

Diesel multiple units (DMU) from Pesa for Trenitaliazoom

ITALY: Trenitalia has tested the first of 40 diesel multiple units (DMU) of type ATR200 Atribo, which were ordered from Pesa in December 2013. Commissioning of the 130 km/h, air-conditioned DMUs – which are to be used in the Marche, Tuscany, Abruzzo, Campania, and Calabria regions – was completed at the end of 2014.


The DMUs with three cars are 55.6 m long with a total capacity of 312 passengers. Each unit is driven by two Voith RailPack power packs and engines started with the help of double layer capacitors instead of batteries. The DMUs have specially developed software that adjusts the cooling fan speed for the purposes of noise reduction, something particularly evident when the train is in the station.

Selectron Systems is delivering the complete on-board Train Control and Monitoring System (TCMS).
