Prolan's railway systems enable traffic management and control over more than 2000 km of railway track network via trackside (ElpultD55 CTC/CTS, PRORIS Interlocking System, Catenary Management System) and traction monitoring using our on-board systems (MFB, PEMG):
Our PRORIS hybrid signalling system (PRORIS-H) implements the safety track logic with conventional relay switch circuits, around which, a safety signal transceiver (ProSigma) is built, with a control interface already integrated in our ELPULT system.
Our ELPULT system is the basis of our control interfaces for all our trackside equipment and has been an integral part of our Prolan core product traffic management and control centres for almost 20 years.
In a significant part of the Hungarian railway network, central traffic control and management is provided by our CTC and CTS systems, remotely controlling the relaying devices. Additionally, our overhead line power remote control (FET) solution can be implemented separately or integrated into a system.
The PRORIS product family, Prolan's railway development, won the 2022 Transport Innovation Award, the top recognition of the domestic transport industry.
Traditionally, we produce substation data collection devices (RTU) and dispatching centers (SCADA) for the electrical industry (Transmission and Distribution System Operators), our references are also to be found in the oil and gas industry and waterworks. These two areas now operate as independent subsidiaries, such as Prolan Power Zrt. and Prolan Innolab Kft. Another basic product is the so-called long-wave radio ripple control receiver (RKV) and the audio-frequency receiver (HKV) that are installed at consumers for managing special tariff usage. Beside our key customers in Hungary we also sell them to utilities in Germany. Our ongoing development aims to provide a broad range of products that meet the needs of smart grid, such as remote meter reading (AMR), versatile local data collection and processing (C-RTU), devices for monitoring low-voltage networks and relay devices required by German service providers , and the remote management system for public and space lighting networks.
We launch our industrial automation competence center within Prolan from January 2021.
We offer industrial automation systems and solutions to industrial companies and various customers in the field of manufacturing and material handling. Our activity is backed by Prolan's knowhow, references, professional background and infrastructure.
As part of the mission, the development of automation-specific products is also a key task of the competence center: under the aegis of Prolan Co., we provide comprehensive, efficient and economical solution for businesses willing to increase their productivity by using automation and robotics.
We develop proprietary control technologies and build innovative,, in many cases even safety critical systems. Maintaining this ability and capacity will make us a competent and valuable partner for close cooperation with universities and research institutes.
Through partnerships with universities, we also give students an opportunity to join in the work of PROLAN, to gain practical experience in development and application areas, and to earn money by being part of our internship programme at PROLAN. By that graduates receive attractive job offers and a career opportunity at our group of companies.
In case of the non-refundable grants received for product development as well as for R&D activities the role of applied research and industrial development play a significant role. Therefore the necessary professional and theoretical background is typically ensured by the active cooperation of our university partners.
Being a specialist in the automation of power industry the demands and opportunities driving from the electromobility are essential to us. This dynamically growing segment brings new players, new business models and new technologies. We shape both our exisiting product portfolio and ongoing developments according to that.
Our public lighting remote control system, Eclipse is able to manage charging points or chargers integrated to lamp poles remotely. SolarTree, our photo-voltaic covering for car parks also able to include charger. By that the renewable energy generated can be utilized directly.
We develped a product line under the name ProEVC to cover the needs of e-mobility. This ranges from an ergonomic outdoor charging station that is recognized as an emblematic street furniture, through indoor wall mounted charging points up to test device for chargers and charger controller unit as a key component of all.
The development of our PROLAN Virtual Power Plant opens new perspectives for municipalities, self-organizing territorial units and other groups of energy consumers. Our system helps to achieve local balance of energy production, storage and consumption, where e-mobility is a key component.
PROLAN Electronic Manufacturing Services Kft. offers manufacturing, assembly and related services of electronic devices that meet strict quality requirements (procurement, testing, packaging, logistics, etc.). Our preferred lot size is small and medium. Our factory is the successor of the traditional electronics assembly plant of the Budapest Telephone Factory, having over 100 years of track record. We have purchased it in 1996. PROLAN's mass products as well as special safety-critical products are also being produced here. Most of the revenue however is generated by external clients, medical device manufacturers, vehicle and machine companies, and other large Western European companies.
Regadless of the industry, location or size, companies are free to enter the annual DreamJobs competition’s „Lovable Workplace” category. Once again, our company was awarded by the users of the DreamJobs platform.
There were only 10 companies winning the Business Ethics Award – one of the most prestigious business prizes in Hungary. The business ethical label is in fact given permanently by the founders themselves. The Award is a commitment to always serve with exemplary responsibility in business as fair and responsible business conduct is a set of values that does not change from year to year.
The Hungarian Railways conference this year focused on the energy crisis and the climate crisis in its fourth session.
Within his presentation „Energy efficiency – just a technical issue?” Márton Feldmann, Deputy CEO of Prolan, described potential solutions that are already available in Prolan's resources to enable railway companies as well as infrastructure operators to reduce their energy costs.
The most significant event of the Hungarian electrical industry, the 69th annual conference and exhibition 2023 took place between 20-22 September 2023 at Hotel Azúr in Siófok.
The 5th ProlanFest will take place on 5 October 2023 at 16:00 at our site!
E-world, the information platform for the energy sector, brings together the international representatives of power generation, trading, transport and smart technologies every year in Essen, Germany.
