Keep your passengers safe with mtu Safety Monitor. At mtu we recognize that your passengers' safety takes top priority. SafeMon (Safety Monitor) helps you to reduce operational risks and to achieve safety objectives even faster and easier.

SafeMon exists to secure the safety of your passengers. It consists of a certified monitoring unit that comes with smart, safety-relevant functions, as well as all the associated safety and approval-related documentation. SafeMon's Safety Integrity Level (SIL) specifies that in the event of faulty or defective components, safety-relevant procedures such as braking, coupling or uncoupling, are guaranteed just as before. As a result, it helps to prevent consequential damage due to unwanted traction or overspeed.

At mtu we develop our safety technology in-house. That means it comes perfectly aligned with the mtu PowerPack. SafeMon is integrated directly in the power system via a simple hardware interface, which means that existing vehicles can also be readily upgraded. Rail vehicle manufacturers receive a complete package that has already been subjected to all hazard and risk assessments, so you can be sure that it comes certified for the safety level that you require.
