Electronic interlockings

Electronic interlockings ensure that railways operate safely. They monitor and control train movements on the lines according to the operational requirements of the railway. Completely preassembled and tested interlockings designed, as modular containers, play a key role in cutting time and costs for installation and commissioning, and so help reduce investment costs.
