Central Traffic Control for Railways (ELPULT)

In central traffic control systems provided by PROLAN the relay interlocking system operating at train stations can be controlled by traditional electro-mechanical mimic control panels with their pushbuttons, or by the electronic control board (ELPULT). The remotely controllable ELPULT device is capable of replacing the traditional electro-mechanical mimic control panel of relay interlocking systems.

Functions of the ELPULT device:

  • Safety equipment feedback on an electronic interface
  • Handling of operative and special orders
  • Logging of traffic and safety equipment events
  • Authorization management
  • Archiving, archive recovery
  • Supervision of the station’s fire and safety alarm system
  • Central Traffic Control (CTC)
  • Central Traffic Supervision (CTS)
