    SelectronSelectron Employees increase their Ownership of the Company

    With our focus on solutions for automation in Train Rolling Stock, we have been established successfullyfor a long time. During the last years, we have continuously expanded our market position and customerrelationships.

    Thanks to our growth since our step out of the Schneider Electric Group in July 2009, we have been able toadapt the capital structure of the company on July 24:

    The employees of Selectron increased their position in the capital structure of the company from 25 % to34% (blocking minority).

    Our financial fund partner Serena Capital has reduced its share from 28 % to 13 %. A new Swisspartner Capital Transmission SA, a subsidiary of BCGE (Banque Cantonale de Genve), joined in.

    With this even stronger involvement of the employees in the capital structure, we reinforce our motivationand means for the continuation of our successful strategy, aiming for customer satisfaction and innovationon solutions.

    The Selectron team is looking forward to further successful collaboration with you!

  • To mark the Innotrans, we have revamped our website with a new look & feel. The aim of the redesign hasbeen to concentrate more on presenting the context in which Selectron operates, as well as to representour range of products and services in an even more structured way. The clarity and menu system should bemade more intuitive. In doing this, we particularly kept in mind the needs of our customers and partners, aswell as potential job applicants. Another important goal was to make our website more international. Whynot take a look at to see if we have been successful in meeting our goals for you too.

    Selectron at the InnoTrans 2012 in Berlin

    18. 21. September 2012Halle 6.2, Stand 123

    At the InnoTrans 2012, Selectron Systems AG is taking its cue from "Train Automation FromSpecification up to Service" and is going to present new, ground-breaking solutions and products foracross-the-board automation engineering and communication in rail vehicles. To enable you to make yourpreparations for the show more efficiently, we would like to preview our show presentation for you brieflyhere. This year, we are paying particular attention to consistent simplification of your processes from thefirst project planning through to support with looking after and maintaining vehicles.


    Efficient software tools for optimum support throughout the project. You can expect three new mainaspects in the software here:

  • Selectron Suite: A new, interdisciplinary tool for simplified and efficient project design, for clearstructuring and as an efficient tool and project management.

    Fleet diagnosis: Web application for improved remote diagnosis. Rapid, detailed information about thevehicle condition such as vehicle position, fault status, etc. via Ethernet as well as integration in theSelectron "Concerto" diagnostic tool. This simplifies your maintenance process. This web application isindependent from the operating system, and offers possibilities for preventative vehicle maintenance, thusreducing your maintenance costs.

    Maestro Designer: Create elements that are and are not SIL-relevant on the new touchscreen display inorder to simplify control-relevant parts of the vehicle registration. Safety-relevant documents can be createdautomatically.A particular highlight here concerns the new widget for automatic topological representation of the hardwarecomponents used, which supports you in commissioning and troubleshooting. This tool makes it possible

  • for commissioning personnel to test the installation, including its cabling. The software application does nothave to be available at that point. As a result, it is possible to perform commissioning independently from anapplication. The entire project can thus be completed sooner, thereby saving significant costs.


    Wireless communication via WLAN, GSM, GPRS, UMTS for data transfer of diagnostic data, faultmessages, data for maintenance and servicing for remote diagnosis.

  • Crashproof data recorder for permanent recording of vehicle-relevant data for evaluating planned andunplanned vehicle behaviour.

    Safety-relevant SIL controllers and displays in the complete system that significantly simplify theregistration process on rail vehicles as well as driver's cab automation.

  • New, SIL-capable displays for reducing safe and non-safe hardware components in the driver'spanel as well as for improved diagnosis. The SIL displays simplify vehicle registration.

    New, smart and value-for-money remote I/O system for simplified sensor/actuator wiring.

  • Open TCMS network technologies such as Ethernet, CANopen, MVB and PROFINET for application-dependent, flexible network design.

    Simple hardware components such as relays, power supply units and DC/DC converters.

  • Driver's cab simulator for training rail vehicle driversTogether with Berne University's Technology & IT department based in Biel / Switzerland, we are presentinga driver's cab simulator. You are warmly invited to try your hand at driving a locomotive.
