ERTMS Solutions works on the development of a BTMLifeCheck. BTMLifeCheck verifies the quality of the remote power supply emitted by the antenna interfaced with the Balise Transmission Module (BTM) on board trains.
The on-board Balise Transmission Module processes uplink signals and telegrams. It interfaces the on-board ERTMS/ETCS core and the antenna unit, which powers the wayside uplink balises by generating a magnetic field.
This field is produced in a transmission loop of the antenna unit and induces a voltage in a reception loop of the balise.
The BTMLifeCheck, a unique tool to ensure that your BTM and antenna are working correctly!
