Electronic interlocks are used to control railway signaling networks. It is a technology that controls the operating system between the signal and switchgear to ensure train safety.
Electronic interlocks are systems that ensure the safe movement of trains. It signals the system when trains can change routes.
How Electronic Shutoff Works.
In fact, this rail system is based on electronic systems that allow trains to safely change routes and also control them.
There are several lines in the yard next to the train station, at which point the trains change tracks. At this point, motors and many sensors are installed in many places.
These sensors measure the train’s position, speed, and other information and provide this information to the signaling system.
This process allows you to use real-time train signals. Blocking works between a point on a line and a signal.
In fact, once a point is established, the signal goes to the line on which the train route is laid. This is called electronic blocking.
The advantage of blocking is that the main line signal does not reach the locomotive when the loop line is installed, and the loop line signal does not reach the locomotive when the main line is installed.
