Automation for railway technology – simply safe!

Securely on the way to the digital future

Railway technology

The railway industry is changing. Digital and networked solutions are the future of railway technology. But increasing digitalisation is also placing greater demands on safety. And where many people are being transported, safety has the highest priority. We know what is important for sustainable, safe control systems in railway technology: they must be economical, simple and reliable.
We provide safety all along the line, in switchpoint drives, level crossings, signal and control technology, signal boxes etc. We use the automation system PSS 4000-R(ail) especially for railway technology.
