Freight Segment: PTC, Signaling & Wayside Market

I-ETMS® (Interoperable Electronic Train Management System)

A leader in the development and deployment of on-board electronic train-control systems, Wabtec’s safety-overlay system, I-ETMS® (Interoperable Electronic Train Management System), integrates new technology with existing train control and operating systems to enhance train operation safety.
I-ETMS® helps prevent track authority violations, speed limit violations and unauthorized entry into work zones to help reduce the potential for train accidents. I‑ETMS® also queries wayside devices for broken rails, proper switch alignment and signal aspects. The information is combined and analyzed in real time to provide a “safety net” for improved train operation.  I-ETMS® can integrate with Wabtec’s train management dispatch system, TMDS®, a bilingual train control solution for all methods of operation including CTC, TWC, DTC, and PTC. Additional Wabtec offerings for Positive Train Control include installation and training, integration, field support, software maintenance, help desk, spares and repair services.
