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.
