powerline – MTU’s automation system for train drive units – represents a step into a whole new future of technology for rail vehicles. Even with only the basic components ADEC, POM and PAU, the powerline automation system makes the integration of the engine into the locomotive a simple process. POM, like ADEC, is an electronic module mounted permanently to the engine. Control, regulation and monitoring are all part of the package that MTU delivers. With the help of optimized interface technology, the engine is quick and easy to install.
