New EUROLOCKING functions receive type approval in Switzerland

Christoph Lerch

At the end of March, the Federal Office of Transport (BAV) granted Type approval for the following new EUROLOCKING functions and interfaces:

    • Track vacancy detection by means of track circuits
    • UGSK3Non-rail-free access to the platform
    • Manual shunting zones

Since the commissioning of the pilot system at Chemins de fer du Jura in September 2018, the Type approval has been extended for the second time to include a function and interface package.

The area of application of EUROLOCKING is therefore extended, giving more customers the opportunity to benefit from the advantages of EUROLOCKING. EUROLOCKING is characterised by the consistent use of standardised and widely used industrial components as well as a multitude of digital interfaces to widely used adjacent systems.

But that is not all! For several months now, our experts have been working at full capacity on the next function and interface update.
