TH-BÜP and LEXOS in operation together
In Niebüll, a level crossing protection system had to be temporarily taken out of service for a track renewal. During the construction period, the level crossing was secured with a TH-BÜP mobile level crossing protection including a LEXOS warning system. In order to ensure maximum safety, the system was modularly adapeted to fit this specific worksite perfectly.
What was the task?
A mobile level crossing protection system, including a warning system, was required at this level crossing. The complex parameters of the level crossing (due in part to sloping pedestrian paths) warranted the use of a modular system that could be flexibly adjusted for this specific crossing.
How was the task solved?
Six barriers with light signals as well as additional light signals were used to secure the level crossing. As a result, all crossing options – roadway and pedestrian crossings – were secured. The LEXOS warning system was installed with switch-on points consisting of ZFS-10 and F500SEN/AB. Power was supplied via a fixed infeed.
The components we used
The CPA 2.0 is the central unit of our TH-BÜP and manages all connected components of the system. By means of a key switch, the level crossing guard can secure the level crossing using a light signal and barrier system, or cancel the security so that they don’t have to go into the danger zone to carry out their work.
- Traffic signal control with SIL2
- Up to 10 system users possible
- Simple operation via key switch
- System status indication by means of integrated display and LEDs
The LEXOS-M is the control unit of our post-warning system and supports the level crossing guard in their safety-relevant activities. If a train is detected at the switch-on points and the level crossing is not secured, the LEXOS-M emits an acoustic and visual warning. If LEXOS-M is operated in a system network with the TH-BÜP, it also activates the red light signals of the TH-BÜP in the event of a train travelling at an unsecured level crossing and initiates an emergency closure of the barriers.
- Autoprowa effect between 85 dB and 120 dB
- Compatible with MFW switch-on point
- Operation via LEXOS-P remote control possible
