DEUTA Products for Metros

Earth-shaking urban safety

Metros are an important contribution to smooth urban short-distance passenger traffic. With or without a driver, the vehicles mostly travel underground in the main traffic lines of the city.  DEUTA products for metros are optimally prepared for the specific requirements in the worldwide metro networks: e.g., all Multifunctional Terminals (MFT) are equipped with an automatic control for secure interaction in different brightness ranges.

All DEUTA products for metros are naturally coordinated to the respective train protection, such as "Communication-Based Train Control" (CBTC).

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 metros:

  • 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.

Multifunctional Terminals (MFT) up to SIL 2

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 to the different light conditions in a metro train. For SIL certifications, DEUTA offers all MFTs with IconTrust technology.

Multi-Functional 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 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 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.
