Wonderware reports that its industrial automation and information software was selected by Thales to provide station management systems at 150 London Underground stations. These facilities are maintained by Metronet, which will use the systems to manage passenger communications and monitor the stations. Wonderware is a business unit of Invensys Systems Inc.

The $21.5-million contract between Thales and Atkins Rail will use Wonderware's Industrial Application Server, which offers a component object-based approach to application development. The server is built on Invensys' ArchestrA industrial automation and information software architecture, which enables the creation of objects and reuse of engineering and configuration.

The station management system will also use Wonderware's InTouch human-machine interface (HMI) software; IndustrialSQL Server real-time plant historian; ActiveFactory analysis and reporting software; and SuiteVoyager portal software to assist in managing and maintaining the stations on several Underground lines including Bakerloo, Central, Victoria, Waterloo and City, Metropolitan, District, Circle, and Hammersmith and City. These Wonderware products will work together to form a station management system in which the Industrial Application Server provides centralized management, common services, and a development environment.
