Signaling and train control systems operating at their peak performance is key to any railway to maximize safety and minimize train delays. For this reason, ENSCO offers technology targeted for assessing the condition on train control and signaling systems.
The full and proper operation of track circuits and train control systems are key to railway operations. The Signal & Communication System (SCIS) is used to measure AC track circuits and associated train control systems in addition to wayside train control systems to ensure that they are operating as intended. The SCIS provides an added level of protection as an independent condition monitoring tool to the train control system itself.
The machine vision capability of the Track Component Imaging System (TCIS) allows for a visual inspection of train control components installed on the track such as balises and transponders. This allows railways to identify problems of broken, missing, or incorrectly located wayside transponders which can result in incorrect train control operations.
The Joint Bar Inspection System (JBIS) imagery allows for the visual inspection of important track circuit components such as bond wires to aid in diagnosing track circuit challenges. These wires and connections can become damaged or partially damaged causing issues with track circuits, train control systems, and road crossing protection systems.
