With EUROLOCKING, BÄR Bahnsicherung AG has developed an electronic interlocking which is freely scalable in size. EUROLOCKING can be used on standard and narrow-gauge railways as well as mountain and urban railways. The system design enables to implement either centralised or decentralised architectures. Based on the generic system architecture, tailor-made solutions can be designed and implemented.
The widespread use of industry standard products (commercial off-the-shelf – COTS), which are manufactured in large quantities, offers cost advantages and improved quality compared to small series or single-part production. In addition, the dependence on suppliers is significantly reduced, which leads to improved readiness to deliver at lower lifecycle costs.
EUROLOCKING Interlockings can be easily adapted to changing conditions. The hardware is modular and can be expanded almost at will. Changes to the software as well as later adaptations to the system can be realised at low cost.
EUROLOCKING is based on a central interlocking computer from HIMA, Paul Hildebrandt GmbH, the leading supplier of high-security programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in Europe, controlling and protecting the equipment of the world’s largest companies in the oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical and power generation industries.
