  • Delivery date: 2016
  • Location: Saronno, Italy
  • Product category: Drivers desk and cab

SPII designed the driver desk of class ETR 1000 Italian high-speed trains in cooperation with Hitachi Rail and Bombardier. The desk is similar to the one Alstom uses in its Pendolino regional trains for Italy and Poland.

The Italian subsidiary SPII is the competence center of the Schaltbau GmbH Group for the design and manufacture of master controllers, console displays and complete driver desks (control package). By using the Schaltbau global sales network, SPII is better equipped to offer its customers the support they need when it comes to designing and adapting both electromechanical and electronic subsystems with certified hardware and software for diagnostic and control systems to the local market.

With its expertise in engineering and design, SPII is able to take up the challenge of developing customized human machine interfaces (HMI) between train and driver. Thus, we enable our customers to drive the development of next generation trains.
