In some situations and for some businesses, the operating staff want to be able to control the traffic locally from close by, e.g. in the depot area, during maintenance work or when testing a new configuration. Cactus can help to produce smart solutions that contribute to cost-effective control of your system.
This is true for example of:
In depot areas there are many different types of technical system that require great local knowledge on the part of the driver, as points are generally switched manually. Much of the responsibility for effective maintenance of the vehicles rests with the staff and their knowledge of the facility and the work process.
Cactus can help to identity effective technical solutions to reduce manual intervention and improve the flow through the depot area. This reduces the workload on the staff and improves safety.
Over the years our customers have had different needs to be able to control individual interlockings and interlocking areas. The systems have proved to be a great help in testing the interlocking configuration at the factory and testing new interlock configurations when the system is in operation. They can also be used as a backup system when there is a temporary communication failure in the system.
Cactus Rail can offer various solutions for local control and can adapt them for different activities.
