IMPULSE TRACK CIRCUIT APPARATUS FOR GRADE CROSSING

A high-voltage impulse track circuit has been developed and tested for grade crossing protection on Japanese National Railways. It was developed to detect lightweight rail vehicles even through oxide layers on rail heads. JNR had previously used the concept for car detection in classification yards. The high shunting sensitivity has been proven in service at several crossing installations.
