LEVEL CROSSINGS

WEGH Group established a strong connection with level crossing technology over 20 years ago thanks to its high quality barrier machine, which is the key component in a crossing. Ever since, WEGH has been a synonym of level crossing safety. Thousands of barrier machines have been installed, while the know-how of control systems continued to grow and to become consolidated. Now, WEGH offers reliable, modular and configurable solutions spanning from specific components to complete solutions for level crossing protection.

eLCSP

eLCSP (acronym for Electronic Level Crossing Safety & Protection) is a comprehensive safety and protection system for the level crossing area. The control logic is managed by electronic components (PLC). This system implements standard UNI 11117 and provides for a safety level equal to SIL4, as required by standards IEC EN 50126, 50128 and 50129. It is extremely modular and configurable and it has many options available.

LCSP

LCSP (acronym for Level Crossing Safety & Protection) is a comprehensive safety and protection system for the level crossing area. The control logic is managed by electromechanical components (relays). This system implements standard UNI 11117 and the EU standards IEC EN concerning railway applications. It is modular and easy to adapt to different installation contexts.

HYDRO-ELECTRIC TRAIN DETECTOR P70

The hydro-electric train detector P70 is designed to detect transiting trains and it is the ideal solution to control safe level crossing clearance. It is made of a detector installed under the rail and an amplifier placed on the side of the track, both of which are conceived to prevent any form of accidental activation. The time for the release of the electrical contacts can be set up.

LED LIGHT SIGNALS

WEGH Group designs and manufactures LED light signals for level crossings to be installed on both the road and the railway side, in different configurations.
