New innovation in flank protection – stopping instead of derailing

May 2011 | Jari Viitanen

A new signalling device for flank protection has been developed. The most important feature is that the device doesn’t derail the colliding wagon. This means considerable savings both in infrastructure and vehicle damage. The price of the new device is considerably lower than the price of a trap point. The developed system can be used instead of traditional derailers or trap points.
