Unicontrols lead

Since its founding in 1991, UniControls has been systematically engaged in the development, production and installation of control systems and of electronic equipment in the fields of rail transportation and industrial monitoring.

UniControls specialises principally in applications requiring a high-degree of reliability in demanding work environments. The path taken, in the direction of highly innovative products, corresponds with the company’s goal of being known as a leading and internationally recognised supplier of control systems and related comprehensive services. The company’s success is based on its stability, reliability and long-term cooperation with its customers, employees and partners.

UniControls is a member of associations and standardisation working groups that are involved with railway technologies, and is certified in accordance with IRIS, ISO 9001:2009, ISO 14001:2005 and OHSAS 18001:2008.

The company is export oriented. Systems produced by UniControls have been in operation, successfully, on a long-term basis in many countries, both in Europe and beyond.


The UNITRACK TCMSe and TCMS platforms implement the control, monitoring and diagnostic functions at vehicle and train levels.

The TCMSe integrates the main processing unit, display units, I/O systems and the communication infrastructure consisting of Ethernet, MVB and CAN networks, with the TCMS doing the same for WTB train bus and MVB, CAN and Ethernet vehicle busses. With the use of wireless networks, both systems ensure data transmission is securebetween the train and ground systems.


The UNITRACJ TELEDIAG is an autonomous diagnostic system that collects train data, processes it to detect faults, and stores the diagnostic results. It ensures the wireless transmission of the diagnostic data to the ground server, which provides it for the applications of railway operators, the infrastructure manager and the vehicle manufacturer.


UNITRACK PIREDI is a comprehensive multimedia passenger information, reservation and diagnostic system, suitable for all types of passenger transport from urban to long-distance trains. Based on a scalable and modular architecture, it can be easily adapted to diverse train operator requirements. It complies with the UIC 176 leaflet and relevant technical specifications for interoperability.


The UNITRACK CAM is an on-board network video surveillance system for the real-time monitoring of passenger compartments, doors and platforms using both indoor and outdoor cameras. The system is based on video streaming over the Ethernet, which connects IP cameras and network video recorders.


UNITRACK PAS Is a train public address system providing voice announcements to passengers and enabling private communication between the driver and crew members. The announcements can be broadcasted to the entire train, or addressed to a coach or compartment. The audio signal is distributed digitally over the ethernet and /or analogue network using a UIC cable.

Energy Meters

The energy meters ELM-101 and ELM-201 are designed especially for energy metering on-board electric traction vehicles. They can measure both DC and AC signals of any existing traction supply system (1.5kV DC, 3kV DC, 15kV/16.7Hz, 25kV/50Hz). Moreover, they are also suitable for multisystem locomotives using more than one electrification system.

The energy meters combine the task of measuring active and reactive energy consumed and regenerated, both capacitive and inductive, recording load profiles at one minute intervals, measuring of instantaneous values (voltages, currents), and the monitoring of the minimums and maximums of values measured.

The energy meters meet the requirements of standards EN 50463 for Class 0.5 and EN 50470 for Class C energy meters. They can be supplied with a calibration certificate enabling its use for billing purposes.

ELM-201 meter can wirelessly transmit the measured data over the GSM / GSM-R / UMTS and WiFi networks. An integrated GPS receiver adds position information to the load profiles and is used for time synchronization.
