Hima-Sella is in the process of delivering a new operational Communications Control System (CCS) for the Central line.
Under a contract awarded in 2011 by London Underground, Hima-Sella will provide a comprehensive and fully integrated solution for the control of: Tunnel Telephones (TT); Long Line Public Address (LLPA); Long Line Closed Circuit Television (LLCCTV); and an interface to London Underground’s dedicated telephone network. The solution will also include an extensive alarm and event management suite.
The new CCS solution will utilise proven and established technologies. Through its exclusive UK partnership agreement with Germany-based Hörmann Funkwerk Kölleda GmbH (HFWK), Hima-Sella will supply third generation DIKOS 310 technology integrated to its own (developed in-house) iCMS SCADA package to create a single point of operation for the line’s controllers.
The system architecture will comprise server redundancy, telephone concentrator, PA Audio router and CCTV matrix and be controlled by operator workstations.
The need to migrate from the legacy system to the new solution cost-effectively
and with minimal risk is of particular priority for Hima-Sella and its relationship with
