  4. Optical-acoustic notifier

The arrival of a train at the station indicated by the pedal at the entrance (Silec type or variation of the electromagnetic field) positioned at a distance sufficient to secure the release of station.Plant, automatically notifies via optical-acoustic signal present at a station staffto leave the country punës.Dalja train is detected by the pedal stops the alarm and then the staff can get back to work.

The plant is controlled by a manager who is trained and authorized by the Italian railway network, and should always be present at the station.

Portable Radio System MFW - The new generation of ATWS Via Radio (New)

Portable Radio System MFW was born as a further development of the automatic alarm system proportional Autoprowa ® for the protection of rail yards, used for years with great success. Portable Radio System MFW uses a bidirectional transmission technology that ensures maximum safety (SIL 4), high flexibility, reliability and a greater range of the signal and allows, therefore, to make a connection between the pedals and the control unit, in the safety distance, with a connection via radio reliable and secure.

The system is composed of the following components:

  1. ZRC (ZÖLLNER Remote Control),
  2. ZPW (ZÖLLNER Portable Indicator),
  3. ZFS (ZÖLLNER Transmitter),
  4. F500 (Pedals),
  5. WGH (Beeper),
  6. Batteries ZA24-ZA24 and 7W-2.9, which can be configured in various ways, depending on the needs of the construction site.

Bitfox S.r.l. uses in their stations only systems manufactured by ZOLLNER Signal GmbH, a global enterprise ATWS for automatic systems in protection of the stations.

These products are characterized by high reliability and possess the ability to adjust the level of acoustic signals as a function of background noise to ensure optimal level always for acoustic transmission (Autoprowa effect).
