The heart of the CMCS is the Station Monitoring Units (SMU) that is based on Siemens S7-300 PLC located at each of the nine (9) KCRC West Rail Stations and ancillary buildings. Extending from each of the SMU there are more than 70 remote S7-200 for each UPS along the trackside. Local display is by way of Simatic Operator Touch Panel.
