Leading Edge Railway Signaling Technology

Products and Services

 

Train Detection

 

Knowing where trains are physically located is essential for accurate train scheduling, control and safety; while train detection is vital for the safe operation of level crossings. In the field of train detection, ERB offers both track circuits and axle counters.

 

Point Machines

 

Point Machines are the basic equipment used in train routing and control. ERB supplies these in both AC and DC models. Additionally, ERB supplies derailers.

 

Signals

 

Signals provide train drivers with clear, easy to see warnings and prohibitions. Here, ERB supplies its LED Signal evoLIGHT Unit as well as gantry signals and signal assemblies.

 

Communication Systems

 

Reliable communication systems serve to ensure that everyone from the train driver to train control officers and maintenance teams know what the state of occupation of a particular stretch of track is. ERB is able to supply technology for fail-safe data transmission (FSDT) and communication-based authorisation systems.

 

Remote Control Systems

 

To ensure safe rail movement while maintaining maximum traffic volumes, ERB supplies and installs CS90 Remote Control Systems.

 

Interlocking

 

In railway signalling, an interlocking is a system of signalling equipment that prevents trains colliding at junctions and crossings, and keeps trains using the same track a safe distance from one another. In terms of interlocking, ERB provides both relay-based and electronic systems.

 

Yard Automation System

 

With vast tonnages of freight moving on rail, yard control systems ensure that freight reaches its various destinations with minimum delay.

 

To serve the needs of marshaling yards, ERB provides a range of equipment such as:

  • Points Machines
  • Points Machine Controllers
  • Detector Boxes
  • Vacancy Detection Systems
  • Local Control Panels
  • Communication Systems
  • Yard Automation Points Indicators (YAPI)
  • Workstations
  • Solar Power Installations
  • Remote Yard Management Systems.

 

Level Crossings

 

In South Africa, level crossing systems are a major area of risk. In collaboration with leading foreign companies, ERB is able to offer advanced electronic level crossing systems such as the versatile WaveTrain control equipment.

 

Power Systems

 

Power equipment that serves rail has to be robust and reliable. Meeting these requirements;

ERB designs, supplies and installs UPS systems.

 

Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics

 

Bearings, brakes and wheels of rolling-stock units are vital elements for the safety of Railroad operations. The ability to detect the heating of these elements can prevent the breakage of the axle boxes, de- railment, fire and other damages to the rolling stock or tracks.

 

Early warning systems are critical for safe railway operations. Installing systems such as hot box and hot wheel detectors can prevent these occurrences.

 

ERB is an approved Progress Rail distributor.

 

Asset Protection

 

With the greatly increased demand for scrap metal, vandalism is sharply on the increase. ERB can protect customers’ assets by vandal proofing points covers, tropical apparatus cases and trackside cabinets.
