Complete IT Control with Remote Configuration

What if you could switch on your trains remotely, with drivers boarding only a few minutes before service begins? What if you could save on energy costs by turning down the HVAC on all your trains on a cool day? The Remote Configuration feature allows you to control your trains’ IT systems directly from the wayside operations centers. With with this pioneering Train IT functionality, you can wake up parked trains and adjust settings during their journey – for a single train or for your entire fleet. Increase passenger comfort by closing doors sooner during cold weather or by adjusting the lighting patterns on a dark day. Save precious staff time, and do many things during operation that would otherwise require a maintenance stop.

Enable better use of staff time

Wake up your trains remotely. And save time for driver and crew by only having them board when the vehicle is ready to roll.

Make your passengers feel right at home

Adjust the air-conditioning systems to each day´s temperature, or change the lighting patterns to match the season – for individual trains or for your entire fleet at once.

Execute predefined commands remotely or automatically
