DEUTA Products for Locomotives

Long-term product safety

All over the world, locomotives drive with the most diverse train protection systems. DEUTA offers a tailored product system for every train protection. We take the successor concepts into account already during the design phase in order to consistently ensure the entire life cycle of a locomotive. 

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

Multifunctional recorders up to SIL 4

DEUTA REDBOX recorders adapt flexibly to the different requirements in locomotives: 

  • travel data recording facilitates the reconstruction of events and forms the basis for fleet optimisation
  • safety function in accordance with the CENELEC SIL standard, where the safety of vehicle and passengers has the highest priority.
  • the deep functional integration up to an all-in-one recorder for PZB and even ERTMS

REDBOX Recorders

Multifunctional Terminals (MFT) up to SIL 2

Different display sizes as well as fieldbus or interface variants are available for locomotives depending on the application and the installation options. We can meet even special requirements with a proven concept: in excellent quality, at an attractive price - high MTBF and optimised LCC values included. Of course, only robust displays with high contrast and high brightness levels are used for DEUTA MFTs. For SIL certifications, DEUTA offers all terminals with IconTrust technology.  

Multi-Functional Terminals


Whether round or square - DEUTA indicators are available in countless variants for locomotives. Our SIL indicators offer additional safety. The ESG indicators with stepper motor provide feedback over a second separate controller. They are characterised 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 locomotives.

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.
