Efficiency meets safety

Wherever railway lines cross a road, increased safety features are needed. Siemens Mobility provides grade crossing auxiliary products that make level crossings safer and more reliable for train operators and passengers alike. They are used with great success by railway operators throughout the world, and demonstrate the expertise of Siemens Mobility in the field of efficient level crossing technology.

Gate mechanisms: Drives as strong as their reputation

Siemens Mobility series of grade crossing gate mechanisms have a proven, robust reputation built on: strong, cast aluminum housings, maintenance-free bearings as well as reliable gear train and rotary circuit controllers. Future-oriented inline gear motors and electric brake combinations replace older motor and electromechanical hold clear devices with modern technology.

S-60 Series

The Siemens Mobility S-60 series grade crossing gate mechanisms are ideal for operating grade crossing entrance and exit barrier arms up to 40' (12 m) in length.


The patented bi-directional lock bar is used to securely lock the gate arm in any position to allow field personnel to perform maintenance functions.


Diagnostic LEDs on the PC board monitor the condition of the mechanism, making it possible to diagnose it without the use of a meter. An integrated maintenance switch helps enable a low mean time to restore (MTTR) by providing a simple method to move the gate mechanism to the horizontal position. This is required to replace the gate arm after a knockdown.
