Another success in Lyon, France
First the Lyon subway and Schneider Electric will now equip the tram system.
Schneider was selected to supply the remote control and monitoring system for tram operations: 65 TSX Premium Modicon/Telemecanique PLCs, equipped with Ethernet couplers and a Web server function, all communicating with the central control station via a fiber optic ring. Several sales arguments were used to obtain this highly fought for contract. One of these was the Web server function which had already appealed to the subway project manager and the operator, together with the OPC standard which enables exchanges between PLCs and the supervisor.
