Electronic systems for rail, maritime and road markets
TRONICO answers the requirements of rail, maritime and road transport markets in terms of safety, reliability and maintainability for long life products (from the design up to their maintainability in operational conditions).
The company masters every electronic skill needed when working on transport markets (wrapping, thermal point, MOC, reverse engineering, long time secure storage…).
Product developments, from SIL 0 to SIL 4, can be achieved using the FIDES guide and in respect of EN 50126, EN 50128 and EN 50129 standard. A specific quality department is dedicated to ensure the respect of internal process and accreditations.
Experienced teams develop and analyse products to reach and maintain requirements regarding Safety & Reliability (RMAS: reliability, maintainability, availability, safety). TRONICO’s engineers have acquired specific knowledge on transport markets in the following technical fields:
- power electronics
- power conversion and storage
- communication & network
- numerical electronics/ FPGA/ µC
- embedded electronics
In addition to its know-how in terms of electronics and mechanical development, TRONICO has internal means for layout and rooting as well as automatic test benches realization.
TRONICO is organized with a specific « prototype » team, which enables it to provide quick manufacturing capability. It provides an expertise regarding purchasing and manufacturing to guarantee reliable and sustainable solutions.
The « prototype » team leans on experienced workers dedicated to this task and led by a prototype coordinator which regroups and handles the customer’s needs and matches them according to industrial constraints.
This “prototype” team disposes of identical and independent production means.
The industrialisation process involves searching and analysing reliable and sustainable solutions to optimise circuit board manufacturing. Industrialisation service facilitates and handles the progress from prototypes to production runs. Industrialisation is integrated from the start of a project to optimize short, medium and long-term production costs.
Industrialisation optimises production and consists of the following elements:
- Purchasing/supply FMECA*: used by TRONICO to handle the risks and obsolescence
- Process FMECA*: used by TRONICO to handle processing risks
- DfM (Design for Manufacturing): analysis of the manufacturability of the boards and their integration
- DfT (Design for Test): defining and optimizing the test strategy
- Design to cost: design methodology to optimise product cost
(*Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis).
Assembly and testing
TRONICO has more than 40 years’ experience in electronic products and PCB assembly.
To do so, TRONICO leans on specific manufacturing means dedicated to electronic systems realization (SMD lines, wave soldering, X-ray, AOI…).
In addition to its manufacturing capability, TRONICO offers a full range of testing solutions (flying probes, ICT, thermal shocking, vibrations, functional testing…). Testing scope is elaborated to provide a permanent loop of improvement.
Thanks to its Nadcap accredited facility in Morocco, TRONICO is able to provide these solutions at a competitive price.
Both manufacturing locations, St Philbert de Bouaine (France) and Tangier (Morocco) use the same process and equipment, both also have the same quality accreditation. The Tangier site is the first to be Nadcap certified on the African continent.
Depending on the customer’s needs and requirements, TRONICO is able to offer manufacturing in France and/or in Morocco.
Activity continuity is ensured thanks to the total compatibility of both locations.
Maintainability in Operational Conditions
Equipment lifetime is longer and longer (some can last over 30 years), however electronic components manufacturing cycle tends to be shorter and shorter. Against obsolescence issues (components, process, manufacturing files…), TRONICO offer global solutions of MOC (Maintaining in Operational Conditions):
- Electronic components counterfeiting detection
- Obsolescence monitoring
- Reverse engineering, redesign, new conception Form Fit Function
- Secure storage for critical components, boards or products
- Repairing, single unit manufacturing
TRONICO develops, realizes and commercializes a product line of highly performant power conversion solutions. This product line is regrouped under the brand: TAMEPOWER®. These solutions apply to embedded and stationary systems from a few Watts up to 500kW by combining converters.

BMS (Battery Management System)
TRONICO masters the design and manufacturing of BMS in compliance with safety and security norms NF-EN61508 and SIL2.
TRONICO’s BMS have a communication bus CAN2.0 as well as an embedded web server.
Research and testing of obsolete electronic components
TRONICO monitors and looks for obsolete electronic components in a product nomenclature all over the world.
These component batches are quite often bought from specific brokers; it is thus necessary to guarantee their reliability. The components laboratory of TRONICO performs tests to ensure their proper functions.
After these tests electronic components can be assembled in an electronic system.
