This year, Schweizer Electronic will be exhibiting at the Access Planning & Work Window Productivity Summit in London on 21st/22nd May 2013.

As train density increases on the major routes in Europe, strategies to provide track access without disruption to the timetable, and delivering more work in shorter possession windows is becoming more and more important.

‘Recently we’ve seen an increase in enquiries from infrastructure companies that either can’t get any track access for rail maintenance or struggle to complete works during short and intermittent possessions’ said Chris Foreman, UK Country Manager for Schweizer Electronic ‘as passenger and freight increases year on year, the timing of this summit couldn’t be better’.

Approved for use by Network Rail and other major European Rail Infrastructure companies, Schweizer Electronic’s products include Automatic Track Warning Systems (ATWS) and Lookout Operated Warning Systems (LOWS) which have been designed to provide safe access to running rail, facilitating productive rail maintenance and construction techniques.

The Schweizer Electronic Group is the leader in automated Track Warning Systems and Level Crossings serving Rail infrastructure companies across the world. As well as its headquarters in Switzerland, the Group also has offices in Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, Spain, Italy and Austria. All operating processes are governed and certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and CENELEC EN 50 126.

In splendid autumn weather, Schweizer Electronic demonstrated the benefits of its minimel lynx mobile radio-frequency warning system in demanding terrain.

The minimel lynx mobile warning system warns people in the danger area of approaching trains. Its key features are safe, reliable operation, robust radio technology and low weight.

To carry out the test, the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) selected the challenging mountain section of the line between Chur and Arosa. In less than 26 kilometres, the Arosa line climbs 1,000 metres through narrow gorges, traversing various man-made structures, including 41 bridges and 19 tunnels, on the hour-long journey.

The central controller of the minimel lynx system was sited directly adjacent to the track between Sassal Tunnel III and Meiersboden Tunnel.
Measuring instruments continuously monitor the reception level of the radio signal coverage, while the test team regularly operates the radio hand switch to simulate the passage of trains.

Identical measurements are taken along the entire route network as far as Arosa station.

Schweizer Electronic were proud that the mobile radio-frequency warning system comfortably meets all the exacting challenges set by RhB.
