Railways have always been the safest form of transport. Ensuring safety is the main task of railway automation. With over 130 years of experience, Scheidt & Bachmann is one of the best manufacturers in this field.
Railway infrastructure owners and administrators in various countries trust our technology and use comprehensive traffic control solutions based on network communication and computer technology. Modern and flexible structure also allows adaptation and construction of subsystems and individual solutions.
The interlocking system ZSB 2000 and its electronic field components have a compact construction, nevertheless we offer everything that a modern railway management system needs. The clear separation between hardware and software, as well as their modularity, enables flexible and cost-effective solutions which can be used for main or secondary railway lines as well as for inner-city and industrial railway lines. Consistent use of state-of-the-art technologies and optimum adaptation to the respective customer requirements make it possible to develop energy-optimised and economical solutions according to the LCC analysis.
In addition to the main tasks of controlling and monitoring, the system can perform other tasks that do not directly relate to safety (e.g. announcements, ticket counter, sound systems and platforms).
Scheidt & Bachmann's fully electronic interlocking system ZSB 2000 is designed for railway traffic in accordance to the current requirements and is approved in many countries for the use on main and secondary railway lines.
With the modular system concept and the software-based implementation of functions, the interlocking system ZSB 2000 is very flexible and can be easily adapted to customer requirements. The ZSB 2000 can handle all types of traction, particularly suitable for use on electrified lines. Networking of all operating points to optimise time and costs which is possible through digital communication interfaces. These are digital interfaces (bus) with which minimal cables provide maximum amount of information by transferring data between each point of service in the form of telegrams. Alongside the operating points of the train station, passing point junctions (AWANST) and block adaptations, level crossings (BUES 2000) can also be directly connected to these interfaces. Cables in the foot of the rail then significantly reduce investment costs.
Due to the contents to be transmitted, “intelligent” interfaces designed as a bus are used.
STRENET enables communication between neighbouring points of interest on the route and adjacent stations using appropriate cryptographic logarithm, while DISPO network provides secure data exchange with dispatching and service center.
In addition, DISPO network can be used to transfer data from other systems on the trail, which allows for comprehensive data collection as well as procurement cost reduction.The collected data can, for example, be used for presentations of passenger information, turnout heating or platform lighting control systems.
