Radio Controlled Railway Level Crossings


STI Engineering' radio SCADA receivers have been used in upgrading a wide range of level crossings in a large rail network in Australia.

The radio communication is a low cost method of activating a manual trackside switch without exiting the locomotive. The system utilises existing analogue voice channel so no additional radio equipment or licenses are required.

In actively protected rail level crossings sometimes the signal operation needs to be manually operated, where localised radio-based control can provide a cost effective solution.

The STI Engineering SCADA receiver is easy to implement as it works using existing UHF voice radio hardware. There is no need to buy or install additional transmitters to operate the SCADA receiver.
