They conform to SIL 4 in accordance with the following CENELEC standards: EN 50121, EN 50126, EN 50128, EN 50129, EN 50155 and EN 45545. Their modular design makes them eminently suitable for digital control tasks and retrofitting. See the variety of application options for yourself!

The automation system PSS 4000-R costs much less than the proprietary control solutions often used in the railway sector, both in terms of procurement and maintenance.

Rail automation made simple

Rail automation with the PSS 4000-R

The automation system PSS 4000-R makes it extremely easy for you to implement safe rail automation! To this end, PLC controllers PSSuniversal PLC-R, approved specially according to the CENELEC standards, and I/O heads are available to you as well as numerous safe, digital electronic modules. The programming is simple and intuitive, performed via the graphics program editor PASmulti; those who want to engage more intensively can use the programming languages according to EN/IEC 61131-3.

No time for delays

Rail safety engineering with the PSS 4000-R

The automation system follows the multi-master principle. That means that you can connect several PLC controllers PSSuniversal PLC-R with each other down a long railway line. This saves you extensive cabling.
The web-based visualisation software PASvisu allows you to keep an eye on all the system’s components. It detects and localises disruptions and errors particularly quickly. This allows you to accelerate your projects, from engineering and runtime to maintenance. There is no time for delays!
