Schweizer Electronic will be exhibiting at Infrarail in the Excel centre in London from 12th -14th April 2016. This year, the company exhibits two products recently approved by Network Rail - VaMoS, an Enhanced User Worked Level Crossing, and a Minimel Lynx, a mobile Track Warning System ideal for patrolling and short worksites in LOWS, SATWS or ATWS configurations. 

VaMoS provides a cost effective Level Crossing solution for Footpath and Farm crossings. The system comprises of standard industrial automation technology and Frauscher wheel sensors, which together with Schweizer’s failsafe modules gives a safety integrity level of SIL3. This system also benefits from low maintenance costs, and will automatically make contact with the depot if a fault exists.

Minimel Lynx, Schweizer Electronic’s new Portable Track Warning System (TWS) has recently received approval by Network Rail to operate as a Lookout Operated Warning System (LOWS), and also trial approval to operate automatically without lookouts as a Semi or Fully Automatic Track Warning System (SATWS/ATWS). Trialed on the LNE route, Outer London on LNW and also in North Wales, the system has radio communication reliance between devices which has been proven to work in areas previously deemed Radio Black Spots. Together with a radio repeater, this ensures radio reception in difficult topology and makes Minimel Lynx the most user friendly TWS on the market.

For over 50 years, Schweizer Electronic have manufactured Track Warning Systems and Level Crossings from Switzerland, serving Rail infrastructure companies across the world. Its products are designed to provide the lowest cost of ownership solutions for crossings, and safe access to running rail for track workers, facilitating productive rail maintenance and construction techniques.
