Trainnet® enables you to develop a single, fully integrated system to manage your freight, passenger or shunting locomotives. With Trainnet® you gain in simplicity, save space and thus lower costs.
System integration

EKE’s technology enables the integration of all locomotive sub-systems (including third party systems) into one common platform, Trainnet®, providing a unique point of control. Cabling can be reduced and maintenance simplified reducing costs of design, installation and repair.

Trainnet® supports the concurrent use of various bus technologies (e.g. WTB, MVB, CAN, S/L, Ethernet) to build the Train Communication Networks (TCN) that you need. Locomotive-to-train or locomotive-to-steering car communication capabilities can be implemented at the coach computer level to build a train-wide system. Please revert to the Coaches, High Speed, and Commuter Trains sections for train-wide solutions.


train automation

The automation of your locomotive can be achieved with the Trainnet® Train Control and Management System (TCMS). All sub-systems can be controlled from a single system.

Sub-system status and diagnostic information are monitored in real-time and provided to the driver and control center. When set limits are reached, actions can be taken automatically or warning messages issued.

Trainnet® allows automation of almost any sub-system, from the synchronisation of traction efforts, to battery charge supervision. The most common examples are listed in the illustration below.


communications

Trainnet® can integrate a Train-to-wayside Communications System, for instance to send diagnostic data to the depot.


onboard safety

Trainnet® can also include video surveillance systems (CCTV), for instance to control the railway tracks. The Trainnet® Event Recorders can be use to store and protect important trainborne data.
