Controlguide Iltis N – integrated control and information system

The Iltis integrated control and information system enables efficient automatic operations management for main-line and mass-transit railways.

Iltis covers the entire field of operational railway control, from the local or remote control of individual interlockings to the automation of entire rail networks. Iltis guarantees safety-critical operator control of interlockings and a reliable display of the operating situation. The system features a high degree of flexibility thanks to its scalable, modular design.

Controlguide Falko – planning system

The Falko software program is used for the design and validation of timetables. It was developed as a means of optimizing operational planning and control for operations control systems. Falko facilitates the generation of optimum timetables (in terms of train intervals plus energy and resource savings), and thereby helps maximize the overall performance of mass transit and main-line rail systems. The program is based on the Windows® NT 4.0 operating system; its operations conform to Windows conventions.

A number of processes can be optimized using Falko:

  • Track layout design

  • Timetable design

  • Timetable validation

  • Construction site planning

  • Energy management

  • Passenger transfer optimization

And this optimization pays off: Falko enables the high savings potential of timetabling to be utilized, resulting in a substantial reduction in costs.

Controlguide Vicos CM – dispatching system

Controlguide Vicos CM is the dispatching system for train formation yards with special operational requirements. It allows smooth and precise operations handling, thanks to early detection of conflict situations and flexible adaptation to timetable changes. As a core element of an automated train formation system, Controlguide Vicos CM communicates with station-internal facilities such as hump control or automatic composition checking systems as well as station-external facilities such as announcement and train-movement information systems.

Controlguide Vicos CM supports the continuity of the logistical transport chain and as a result offers a solution for achieving the desired goals in modern rail freight traffic.

Controlguide Dispolino – Fleet and Crew Management

Controlguide Dispolino is an extensive modular IT system which provides a planning and dispatching solution for fleet and crew management in rail freight transportation. The system is specially tailored to the requirements of industrial and mine railways, both on the open line and within plant sites.

Controlguide Dispolino boosts the reliability and efficiency of transport services. This modular solution enables customer-specific configuration.

It optimizes the deployment of staff, locos and cars and the usage of routes and customers’ own infrastructure. The system indicates whether all resources are available on time for whatever transport tasks are involved. Conflict detection and visualization enable forward-looking dispatching and minimize any impact of disruptions on operations.

Controlguide Dispolino supports railway undertakings’ business processes including both contract and order management and service-related accounting.
