Conventional solution for regional lines (SIL2)

INTERFLO 100 is a conventional signalling solution for regional lines. This solution includes all the trackside products required for such a line

The system has the following characteristics:

  • Drive on sight
  • EBI Track train detection by track circuits or axle counters
  • EBI Switch point machines controlled by interlockings
  • EBI Light conventional or fibre optical signals
  • EBI Lock computer-based interlocking
  • EBI Screen control room handles train supervision
  • If required the system can be complimented with a national ATP system

EBI Screen control room

The traffic is supervised by the EBI Screen control room system. This is a modern state-of-the-art computer-based control and supervision system allowing the operator to give commands through a mouse or keyboard with the facility to have the position of the vehicles and optional wayside objects shown on both normal display screens and large rear projection screens.

The functionality includes:

  • Advanced CTC with flexible automatic route setting
  • Supervision and data acquisition (SCADA) and power control
  • Passenger information displays (PIDs)
  • Closed Circuit TV (CCTV)
  • Public announcement (PA)
  • Radio communication

EBI Lock computer-based interlocking

The INTERFLO 100 solution uses EBI Lock computer-based interlocking. These interlockings can be either centralised or distributed, in which case the central unit is located in one place and the object controller units that drive the wayside objects can be located at some distance from the central unit.

EBI Track train detection

The detection of vehicles in the INTERFLO 100 solution usually occurs through normal track circuits, which give continuous detection on the position of the vehicle. Axle counters can also be used instead of track circuits.

EBI Switch point machines

Point machines from the EBI Switch point machine range can be used, depending on what is most suitable for the particular market. Conventional point machines are normally used in anINTERFLO 100 solution. The point machines are operated by the EBI Lock computer-based interlocking.

EBI Light signals

The INTERFLO 100 solution uses conventional or fibre optical signals. The signals are used to give the train proceed or not-to-proceed information. The EBI Light system includes mainline, dwarf, and tunnel signals.

EBI Gate level crossing

Complete level crossing systems are used in the INTERFLO 100 solution.

EBI Tool processes & tools

The EBI Tool toolbox provides an integrated environment for adaptation, engineering, installation, test, commissioning and maintenance of an INTERFLO 100 solution.
