Remote controls for signal boxes and operational control systems

The remote control system from Kummler+Matter EVT enables the centralised control of railway safety systems at the click of a mouse, thereby ensuring optimum control of railway traffic and train routing.



Remote control systems


Existing signal box systems can be connected to a control system using the secure remote control system from Kummler+Matter EVT. This allows you to maintain control of all railway traffic at all times, and can react quickly to specific events. The result is a more stable timetable with reduced costs.



Economical, powerful, user-friendly


The remote control system is based on modern, powerful and open technologies. The user-friendly interface offers the best possible overview and is intuitive to operate. The system is fully redundant and complies with the SIL2 safety level.


Sustainable adjustments


The system uses a proven and robust technology that will be available for the long term and which can be adjusted to meet new needs at any time. Which means your investment is protected over its entire service life.



Comprehensive functions


In addition to the functions for operation and train control, other applications can be integrated easily - such as the controls for turnout heating, lighting and other auxiliary systems. Train number tracking and automatic train routing can also be integrated into the system.

Your benefits

Increase the availability of your railway network


  • React quickly and flexibly to events in train traffic and reduce delays.
  • To increase security and availability, all system components have been designed redundantly.



Highest data security


  • The remote control application runs on two independent, redundant servers
  • In the event of a problem with one of the servers, the other server takes over and the system remains fully available.
