Long-term experience with LED signals in a digital context

Dezember 2018 | Georg Klöters, Andreas Priebe

After more than ten years of use, it has been shown that the degradation of LED in signal heads can be minimised through the use of design measures so that the possible period of use for LED signal heads actually exceeds their service life. Therefore, the advantages of signals with universal radiation characteristics can now be put to long-term use. The digital modular design of the signal system not only makes the system compatible and modifiable in the future, but it also offers the option of connecting Scheidt & Bachmann (S&B) digital LED signals which currently exist in the field to modern DSTW interfaces...
