DEUTA Products for CBTC

Urban train protection 

Concerning train protection, there are indeed similarities between metro lines and ETCS routes (Level 2 and 3). The permission and control commands for both routes are not displayed by signals;  they are rather given via the data communication between rail vehicle and permanent-way installations. The DEUTA products for metros with CBTC installation (Communication-Based Train Control) are geared towards specific train protection requirements.

The focus is on the safety of people when DEUTA products are in use:

Multifunctional recorder

DEUTA REDBOX® recorders adapt flexibly to the different requirements in metros: 

  • travel data recording enables the reconstruction
    of events and forms the basis for fleet optimization
  • safety function in accordance with the CENELEC SIL standard, where the safety of vehicle and passengers has the highest priority.

Multifunctional terminals

Different display sizes as well as fieldbus or interface variants are available for metros depending on the application and the installation options.  All terminals are prepared with automatic brightness control of the different light conditions in a metro train. For SIL certifications, DEUTA offers all terminals with IconTrust technology.   

Multifunctional Terminals


Whether round or square - DEUTA indicators are available in countless variants for metros. Our SIL indicators offer additional safety. The ESG indicators with stepper motor provide feedback over a second separate controller. They are characterized by an integrated monitoring system in the form of a feedback unit. The electrical EGS indicators are equipped with two independently operating moving coil instruments whose inputs are adapted to current, voltage or PWM signals. The electrical ENG indicators have a moving coil instrument whose inputs are adapted to current, voltage or PWM signals.


Speed sensors 

The space-saving pick-up sensors and the axle-mounted speed sensors are the ideal choice for regional vehicles.  

The operationally proven speed sensors are driven by a mechanical coupling from the axle of the vehicle. Dirt and vibrations will scarcely impair the DEUTA axle-mounted generator. They are integrated into the system in order to create secure speed information.  

The pick-up sensors use the Hall principle and have an extraordinarily high service life as they are non-contacting in operation and thus wear-free to a great extent.
