Invensys Rail to Showcase Market Leading Systems at Infrarail

Posted by Barry Pearson on March 14, 2012  |   Comments Off on Invensys Rail to Showcase Market Leading Systems at Infrarail

Invensys Rail will be showcasing a broad range of its market leading systems and solutions at this year’s Infrarail exhibition.

Amongst the systems on display will be the company’s Modular Signalling solution, the latest generation WESTLOCK computer-based interlocking and its ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) solution.

Developed to allow a wide range of signalling schemes to be implemented from a small range of core components, Invensys Rail’s Modular Signalling solution delivers high standards of safety and performance, cost-effectively. Essentially, the system allows rail operators to improve the cost, efficiency and availability of their baseline signalling, providing completely integrated systems that are installed and tested in a safe, efficient and repeatable manner – requiring significantly less time on site.

Also on display will be a demonstration of the company’s WESTLOCK computer based interlocking system. Proven in projects across the UK, Australia and mainland Europe, WESTLOCK is a safety critical, modern interlocking capable of controlling an area of railway many times greater than that of a traditional SSI – as well as a larger number of trackside objects. The system delivers significant savings as well as headroom for future expansion. A recent firmware upgrade to WESTLOCK delivers not only enhanced network communications functionality, but also a significant increase in performance both in terms of speed and memory capacity.

Invensys will also be discussing its ERTMS solution at the exhibition, particularly with regard to the Thameslink Key Output 2 programme. The resignalling of London Bridge Station will see the introduction of the company’s ATO (Automatic Train Operation) and ERTMS solutions, which will be overlaid in the London Bridge area to enable all train movements to be controlled automatically, delivering up to 24 trains per hour in each direction at the programme’s completion in 2018.
