Flexible and modular software for efficient movement of trains along the line.
The Centralized Traffic Control (CTC) 1000 is an integrated solution that meets the continuous demand of Railway Infrastructure Managers for efficient traffic management network. The increase of passengers shaped the need to improve quality of services and the optimization of the operation. The CTC 1000 automates the operations and supports the control and regulation of the railway traffic, with the aim to:
- Increase the traffic capacity of the railway network.
- Improve the traffic regularity, thus reducing the risk of delay in service.
- Rationalize the railway operation.
Flexibility in the organization of the operating places.
• Flexibility in the organization of the operating places.
• Growth capabilities.
• Easy network operation.
• Friendly user interface.
• High availability.
• Enhanced maintenance diagnosis.
• Multiple interfaces with external systems.
• Automatic traffic operation.
Modernization of old dispatching lines with the introduction of Centralized Traffic Control (CTC) systems usually implies the need to adapt the auxiliary systems to the new working system and to the new organization, configuration and services of a Control Centre based on a CTC.
The following summarizes the structure and functional features of the NetTrac 6617/CTC 1000 Remote Control System. The hardware and software platform (servers and workstations) is based on modern processors with 64 bits architecture and RISC technology. NetTrac 6617/CTC 1000 has been developed on a multi-task, multiuser, real time operating system.
The NetTrack 6671/CTC 1000 operations are supported by a reliable software, which is SIL-2 certified, whose main components are:
• Real time data base as integration platform.
• Modular application SW, according to the required functionality.
• A relational data base used to provide a historical data recording.
• Automatic train identification.
• Every train moving along the line controlled by NetTrac 6617/CTC 1000 is monitored and displayed on Supervision Pictures and Time-Distance Diagrams.
Automatic Route Setting
• Schedule Regulation based on train identification and current position.
• Alarms are presented graphically on the monitors.
Optionally, an acoustic warning can be triggered. The operator must confirm the alarm. Registration of the alarm is stored.
• Reports, generated to help the management of the line, contain the following information: timetable deviations, failures, delay causes and others.
Remote Control and Supervision
• Monitoring and full remote operation of railway installations (interlockings).
