Radio Block Center

OVERVIEW

The RBC9 system is the ECM solution for ERTMS Level 2/Level 3 signaling, with the highest level of safety (SIL4), compliant with Baseline 3 Release 2 of ERTMS/ETCS specifications (UNISIG SRS 3.6.0) and with the high reliability and modularity.

RBC9 allows the safe and continuous control of trains, allowing high speed operation and minimum distancing between trains. 

RBC9 receives position reports from trains and communicates with interlocking to issue safety related information (movement authorities) to train via the GSM-R infrastructure.

RBC9 is able to handle 200 trains and 200 km of line including several stations. 

COMPONENTS

RBC9 fits into context of ECM signalling products. Anyway it could communicate with any interlocking system using the protocol defined in UNISIG Subset-098 or a national communication protocol.
