  • Modularity
  • Scalability
  • Configurability
  • Regularity of service
  • Design according to object oriented directives and customer-server architecture (microservices)
  • Hardware redundancy and function redundancy
  • Interfacing with external systems (SCE System, Public Information Systems, automation and control systems, electric traction systems...)
  • Interface with ACCM signaling systems (interlocking)
  • Interface with ACEI electromechanical devices

TMS9

The TMS9 system provides all the command, control and traffic supervision and automation functions:

  • Control and Command of controlled stations
  • Timetable Management (import of annual operating timetable file)
  • Automation Management for automatic station management
  • Automatisms Management for the management of each train
    • Timetable Management
    • Constraints Management (In/Out Automation service)
    • Time Constraints Management (arrival/departure time)
    • Respect of operating time
    • Respect of constraints due to interruptions or slowdowns
    • Arrival and departure track management
    • Assisted train placing in interruption conditions
  • M53 management with track placement or changeover
  • Infrastructure Management (interruptions/anomalies/slowdowns)
  • Agenda Measures
  • Train trend tables
  • Conflicts (detection and resolution)
  • Train running forecast
  • Train Describer (TD)
  • Train Graph (TG) with train running forecast, status of interruptions, failures and delays
  • Interface with neighboring automation system (NT protocol) for automatic train exchange between the 2 automation systems
  • Chronological Event Recording
  • Traffic Alarms and Regulation Alarms Management

FUNCTION OPTIONS

Expansion

The TMS9 system can be expanded to include new stations or new line sections. Such expansions are available, depending on the needs of the line operator.

Timetable Management

The timetable update in RFI is realized through the import of VCO. Maintaining this standard, it is possible to have a customized application to allow the operator to import:

  • Full operating timetable
  • Make changes to the operating timetable
  • Make changes to the operating timetable for each train

Shared Circulation Enviromment (SCE)

The TMS9 system is able to exchange informations on circulation of trains with any system used by the customer.

For lines that do not own an information managing system, it is possible to activate a SCE platform capable of providing the following functions:

  • Centralised timetable with the possibility of operating trains
  • Real-time updating of train running information (arrival/departure station, arrival/departure time, accumulated delay)
  • Events on trains for the implementation of the customer information system
  • Customized protocol for managing public information on trains in circulation

Public Information

Through the SCE system, information can be provided to a station system that can maintain up-to-date public information.

Web Public Information

Through the SCE system you can provide information to a web server system to manage user connections.

DC Station

Depending on operational needs, a DC (Coordinating Executive) workstation can be used with the functions:

  • Visualization through TG (Train Graph) of trains in circulation
  • Update of the train timetable 
  • Updating of scheduled events such as delays or interruptions
  • Deletion or execution of trains
  • Update of the operating timetable

ARCHITECTURE

TMS9
of
TMS9

The system uses independent ring networks one for the system the TMS9 system and one for the ACCM system. The TMS9 system servers are connected in on both networks and provide firewall and redundancy functions. Through a standard protocol, the system communicates with the front ends of the Interlocking system to:

  • Receive the status of the devices of the controlled stations
  • Send messages to give commands;

The processors of the TMS9 system are redundant in order to guarantee the continuity of operation even in case of failure.

  • SRV – TMS9 system management server;
  • PO – Main operator station (1) and sidekick (2) with their operator interfaces DCO
  • DIAG – System diagnostics with related interfaces to operator Maintenance
  • SCE – Shared Circulation Enviromment
  • PO-c – Operator Coordination Station (optional).
