The Signalling Company is building a better ETCS onboard solution, to make the signalling system of the future cost-effective, flexible and future-proof.
They asked ERTMS Solutions to build a Balise Transmission Module (BTM) Sil0 to test the setup of their future iBTM using simplified hardware and over-the-air software updates.
The BTM Sil0 provided by ERTMS Solutions is a balise reader capable of reading Eurobalises and sending the read balise telegrams to another system, within a deterministic and short response time.
The BTM will:
- send in “real-time”, after passing over each balise, its content (user data), by means of a periodical message using an Ethernet connection.
- receive the GPS NMEA formatted location data in UDP packets.
- be remotely activated and de-activated by means of remote turn-on/turn-off messages
The Signalling Company is easing the transition to safe, future proof and affordable onboard systems for railway operators. They are building a better ETCS onboard solution, to make the signalling system of the future cost-effective, flexible and future-proof.
The Signalling Company is the result of a joint-venture between two Belgian companies: ERTMS Solutions, an industry leader in railway signalling automation, and Lineas, the largest private rail freight operator in Europe.
