We are technology agnostic, this enables us to match the right solution to our customer’s needs. It also means we explore the industry to keep on top of technology innovation and developments in rail across the globe. We typically have 1 or 2 R&D projects running to ensure that we can provide relevant and value add solutions for our customers.
SIL4 Level Crossing Solution
Based around Frauscher wheel detection, we have developed a level crossing solution that utilises a TUV certified safety controller with onboard safe application logic to control the level crossing, Frauscher Safe Ethernet serial comms and (non-safe) event logging and monitoring. The hardware and in-house developed software are certified to Cenelec EN5012x to provide assurance that the solution is demonstrably safe for use in a SIL4 environment.
The systems is configurable to any level crossing type (single or multi track, uni or bi directional) and can also implement RCSA’s (patent pending) speed proving technology for consistent warning times and improved road opening on mixed traffic lines with varying line speeds.
The system is commissioned into use in Taiwan and in 3 rail authorities jurisdictions in Australia.
RCSA can deliver these level crossing systems as a package or, if you are a systems integrator or signalling delivery org, we can provide the technology and support for you to deliver the solution yourself.
