Signal & Telecommunication


INTRODUCTION

Signalling is the most important aspect of Railways that ensures that trains pass through the stations safely. This is a type of communication conveyed to the Loco Pilots by the Station Master whether the train can enter / depart from a station or on which line the train is received which enables Loco Pilots to control the speed at which train can pass over station.


This is also a system, which eliminates the human failures while dealing trains. The design of signaling and different types of equipment used ensures a fail safe operation.


Different electrical means like Track circuits, Relays, Axle counters, Dataloggers, Panels, different kinds of batteries, chargers, generators, Block instruments, Electronic Interlocking (Solid state technology) devices etc. are integrated in a manner that ensure safety.
