APPROACH TIME EQUALISER FOR FLASHING LIGHT INSTALLATIONS FOR LEVEL CROSSINGS. EFFECT OF REDUCED ACCELERATION - DRAFT SPECIFICATION
This report gives the kinematic conditions of operation for an approach time equaliser which is valid for trains having a maximum acceleration of 1.6 - 10 to the minus 2nd power V. (In Interim Report No. 1 a value of maximum acceleration of 2.7 - 1.4 x 10 to the minus 2nd power V was used.) Two cases are considered: (a) a device measuring the speed only at certain points, and (b) a device measuring continuously the position of the train with respect to the level crossing. This report also includes a specification for equalisers of both types (a) and (b) above.
