Intellectual train control system BORT is a trainborne control and safety system, specifically designed to provide the safe train movements on track in accordance with the movement authorities by continuously monitoring the train speed and signaling lights.
BORT System is designed to be used at railroad sections equipped with:
The system enables non-stop locomotive traffic at the boundaries of railroad sections equipped with various types of interval train traffic control systems.
The Safe Computing Block (SCB) processes all information received from periphery devices and sensors, ensures the safe operation of the emergency braking electropneumatic valve, makes critical computations and operates peripheral devices.
Main Indication Block (MIB) of various designs displays all SCB processed information to the locomotive operator and enables the locomotive operator to interface with the system using the buttons located on the MIB's console.
Navigation Block (NB) receives signals from a satellite navigation antenna and processes navigation and real time data.
Network Switch (NS) arranges an Ethernet based network between the connected blocks and to power blocks supporting the PoE technology.
Intrface Matching Block (IMB) is designed to connect external digital equipment (e.g. digital radio channel modem, balise signal receiver, digital pressure sensors, external systems, etc.).
I/O Block (IOB) is designed to connect external analog equipment (e.g. locomotive control and diagnostics lines, analog pressure sensors, etc.).
Digital Radio Modem & Antenna Block.
Balise Signal Receiver Block with a guiding antenna.
Train speed/pressure/integrity control sensors, actuation devices.
