EKE-Trainnet TCMS for London Underground

Modernising of London Underground’s trains

The Train Control and Management System (TCMS) of the Central line and Passenger Information System (PIS)/Public Announcement (PA) system for Bakerloo Lines fleet were modernised to meet the customer’s and legislative requirements and to extend the operational life. The refurbishment project of 932 metro cars extended the fleet’s life up until the fleet’s planned end of life.

EKE-Electronics provides full turn-key modernising for the Central line fleet’s TCMS and PIS/PA solution for the Bakerloo line. The scope included a turn-key solution including installation design and prototype train installation to help the customer to plan its own works and production. The solution contains variety of systems and functionalities that include e.g., turn key TCMS and application software including sub-system integration, event recording, SmartVision condition monitoring and PIS/PA functionalities. EKE’s 35-year experience in delivering solutions to railway customers makes these challenging modernising projects possible.
