With value-added partners across all markets, EAO possesses the resources to satisfy the certifications, approvals, and legally applicable standards necessary for operator controls in driver cabs, passenger access, passenger convenience, and lavatories within successful rail applications.

Driver cabs are the central focus of operation within rail applications and are essential for the safe and reliable transportation of passengers. EAO’s Series 04 have been developed to withstand the challenging demands of operator controls within driver cabs and can be seamlessly implemented in ergonomically-friendly designs to fulfil UIC 612 guidelines.

Furthermore, products such as the Series 56 and 57 meet TSI PRM and ADA standards, as well as the new EN 14752, ensuring everyone can travel safely and conveniently — including those with disabilities. EAO’s comprehensive range of HMI solutions, both with individual components and completely designed systems, satisfy customer requirements while simultaneously increasing passenger convenience. The importance of regulation compliance for impaired mobility also extends to lavatory controls in most modern trains as well. EAO offers special accessory components, such as SOS buttons and status indicators for on-board restrooms, to meet these needs.
