Signals and Communication

ENGINEERING & PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Our signal engineers design CTC systems, interlockings and grade crossing warning systems, program vital processor applications, upgrade rail yards, perform preliminary engineering for commuter rail systems, and provide field service and training. We are also a resource for turnkey project management, taking a project from material procurement through engineering design and field installation.

We are currently working with several railroads on PTC upgrades to signal systems and PTC data radio message mapping. Whatever your PTC needs, whatever the size, our engineers are here to assist.

SOFTWARE ENGINEERING

We have extensive experience in programming GETS, Ansaldo (US&S), and Invensys (SafeTran) products. Our facilities are able to design software utilizing all versions of VALC, ACE, ALP, GEN, MLK, or DT compilers.

Our testing facilities are equipped with a variety of solid-state microprocessor devices, which include EL1A, EC2 through EC5, VHLC, ElectroLogIXS, XP4, GCP4000 and Microlok II. We provide software testing for any size location, including end-to-end testing of multiple plants. This is accomplished by rack testing or utilizing simulators such as Vital-Sim.

Utilizing GETS' or Ansaldo's PTC compilers, we can design complete PTC application software.

TRAIN INSPECTION SYSTEMS

Our train inspection systems keep trains moving safely with a wide range of track-mounted equipment to aid in defect detection, diagnostics and train monitoring. Our systems are designed to monitor bearing temperatures, wheel temperatures (both hot and cold detection) and inspect for dragging equipment and for high/wide/shifted loads.

ASSET PROTECTION

Let us help protect your infrastructure investment using our range of asset protection solutions. From protecting the ties and track from damage caused by dragging equipment, to protecting high-values assets like bridges and tunnels using our high/wide load detections, we can design an asset protection solution to meet your needs. These systems are delivered as standalone systems or integrated into existing CTC systems.

High Wide Load Detector

We design and manufactures complete High/Wide Load detector systems. These systems utilize Infrared sensors to detect train clearance issues and can alert the train crew and operations centers before a train damages valuable assets like bridges and tunnels. This detector system can interface with the our Hot Bearing Detector and Micro Talker equipment.
