  • A variety of innovations at InnoTrans 2018

    A variety of innovations at InnoTrans 2018

    Selectron is presenting its new automation philosophy at stand No. 212 in Hall 6.2. The focus is on safety, security and cost-reducing concepts through new control architectures. They center on the newly developed high-performance CPU 94x controller family.

    Virtual CPU applications, SIL 4 applications, ultimate vehicle control unit performance, and state-of-the-art cyber security are decisive keywords here. New Smartio® components such as SIL 2 CPU, Ethernet remote connections and signal conditioning modules (e.g., PT100) round off the current product family. We are also presenting a new wheel slide protection system in the Smartio® form factor. Last but not least, we will showcase our revised switches (Ethernet Consist Network, ECN) and routers (Ethernet Train Backbone), as well as new network gateways. Please drop by: Selectron drives innovation forward!

  • Ten optional low-floor trams with Voith traction equipment for Helsinki – Selectron's TCMS is onboard once again

    Ten optional low-floor trams with Voith traction equipment for Helsinki – Selectron's TCMS is onboard once again

    The first forty of the quiet, energy-efficient trams have been in operation in Helsinki since 2013 with an availability rate of over 99% from the Voith drive system. The vehicle operator has now ordered a further ten vehicles.
    The TCMS system used in the vehicles is based on the open and flexible MAS 83x/73x automation system from Selectron. This takes over the control and diagnostic functions in the drive concept of the vehicles.
