Get on track for Rail 4.0!

Digitisation in rail transport

Digitisation

Rail transport needs digitisation: to modernise outdated equipment, to increase capacity and reliability and for resource-friendly, pinpoint maintenance and repair. We can provide support with proven safety solutions for the requirements presented by digitisation of the railway industry.

We are one of the trailblazers in the industrial digitisation offensive Industrie 4.0, and incorporate this experience into our solutions for railway automation. In standard applications such as level crossings and as replacement for obsolete relay technology, but also in completely new applications for which you still don’t have a solution.

Why is Pilz your perfect partner?

Our success stories

Pilz is a partner of EULYNX

Organisation EULYNX

The organisation EULYNX is committed to standardised interfaces and therefore the interchangeability of control and safety technology components. In particular it should be possible to interconnect modules from different manufacturers to form one system. We support this organisation with our expertise in safety technology.

We are currently taking part in a research project to examine how the controller from our automation system PSS 4000-R, as object controller for a set of points, can communicate with a controller from a different manufacturer. In doing so, our systems support the RaSTA standard.
