A NEW TRACK RELEASE SYSTEM

EIN NEUES GLEISFREI-MELDESYSTEM

The former track release system working on 50 Hz track circuits in Berlin's Transport system (Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe--BVB) has frequent failures, in spite of upgrading, in particular when 3 phase tractive units are used. However, remote-controlled audio-frequency track circuits operate without disturbance. Insulating points and electronic elements near the track are no longer necessary. It is possible to develop this into a system for linear control of train running without the track cables that were needed until now. The new technique proved satisfactory to the BVB and will progressively replace the 50 Hz track circuits.
