General Characteristics:

The ECOCom is a Data Handling System (DHS) that integrates the capacity to handle not only the energy consumption data for the billing purpose but can be also used as gateway to support other systems like DAS, CBM and data transfer in general.

The DHS implements mechanisms of protection and security able to ensure both the integrity of the transmitted data to ground systems and the management of data loss due to lack of connectivity.

The configuration software allows easily to configure the communication parameters and vehicle data.


A digital communication port, Ethernet or Serial, is used to connect the Energy Measurement Unit (ECF) that provides the energy data.

The energy data transferred to the DHS is used to create and storage Compiled Energy Billing Data (CEBD).

The Compiled Energy Billing Data is prepared and submitted to the ground systems that deal with the management of energy consumption.

The integrated wireless connectivity offered by the DHS, provides the time information and geographic location.

The storage capacity allows to have additional space that can be used by other equipment on board which require data storage and data transmission.

Available options:

  • WIFI network interface
  • Digital input/output at battery level
  • Ethernet network interface
  • CAN network interface
  • SIM card reader for mobile network (double SIM card holder as option)
  • RS485/RS232 network interface
  • GPS
  • GSM/UMTS/up to LTE (with internal or external multiband Antenna); GSM R as option
  • Diagnostic and signalling external LEDs

Environmental performances:

The device is suitable for railway rolling stock application, designed to be installed inside the cabin.

The device is compliant with all regulations of the rail market. All the components are homologated for the industrial temperature range (from -40°C to +85°C - Class OT4 EN50125-1) and ensure proper function in the worst environmental conditions.

Electrical performances:

The device is characterized by very low energy consumption and the auxiliary power supply nominal range is 24÷110Vdc.
