ATWS SYSTEM (Automatic Track Warning Systems)

It has a collective function of protection. It’s a system that makes zone working safer and more efficient especially in the yards where there’s high risk of collision among trains. To ensure safety of those working on the track, ATWS offers the best possible protection with the use of optical and acoustic signallers. It’s formed by a central elaboration unity and some alarm systems of sonorous and luminous types. Its aim is advise workers of the approach of the trains at the right moment. There are two types of system in this category: Cable system: of long installation time, used for big, fixed or long-life yards (for civil works such as underpasses, the tunnel adjustments with new security conditions, the bridge substitutions, etc.); Radio system: of shorter installation time, used for complex but mobile yards (for track renewal).
