Modular Train Control System MTCS

The Modular Train Control System (MTCS) is a freely programmable system for safety critical railway applications. It is the first computer system ever in the history of the railway industry that separates the control electronics – the computer hardware - from the real control function - the application software.

Modular Train Control System (MTCS) with Safe I/O

MTCS is the first and only railway computer that is based on defined open standards for hardware, software and communication. Its modularity makes it configurable for every control function inside and outside the train.

It is certifiable up to SIL 4 in all its single parts and complies completely with the EN 50155 and EN 50121-4 railway standards.

MTCS is designed to operate in rolling-stock applications such as Automatic Train Control (ATO) and Automatic Train Protection (ATP) as well as in wayside applications like interlocking systems.

MTCS consists of the safe controller, the safe I/O functions and the communication interfaces to the "outside" world.

The final safety level of MTCS is scalable and as such solely determined by the application requirements - resulting in an optimum price / performance.
