Digital Solutions

For the Railway Industry

Digitalisation is one of the most important fields for the further development of rail transport for passengers and freight. It affects many areas – from the manufacturing, operation and maintenance of trains to the user experience and the competitiveness of rail transport. 

Train Connection Systems play a crucial role in the digitalisation of rail transport. On the one hand, the coupler system is the interface for the data flow within the train. On the other hand, they can be digitised themselves and thus generate added value that improves the safety, performance and functionality of train traffic as a whole. 

Dellner’s digital solutions for the railway industry offer ideally matched products and services that help train manufacturers and operators to digitise their Train Connection Systems in a functional, cost-effective and high-quality manner.

We Help to Make Better Use of Train Data

Data is the new oil. This certainly also applies to all data relating to Train Connection Systems. In order to take full advantage of the opportunities this affords, we have developed Dellner ConneXion & Monitoring (DXM). 

DXM is a fully engineered system for transmitting coupler or other operating data to the train’s condition monitoring system. This service from Dellner Digital Solutions enables train operators to improve the reliability of their train fleets and gain better control over the lifecycle costs of key components.

Freight Trains with Digital Automatic Couplers

Automatic couplers are the future of rail freight in Europe: according to a joint plan of the European Union and the railway industry, the couplers of all freight trains are to be replaced by Digital Automatic Couplers (DAC) by 2030. Dellner is one of the official suppliers of this initiative and we have already developed two models according to the DAC level 4 to market maturity.

In addition, we will continue to develop DAC technology. Our goal for the next few years is to release a level 5 DAC that digitally supports a remote automatic uncoupling procedure.
