Technical Re-Equipment of The Somovo Station of The South-Eastern Railway
Technical re-equipment of the Russian Railways infrastructure is on the way. Specialists of the Signaling Division GC 1520 have modernized the Somovo station of the South-Eastern railway (11 points) and the Somovo-Otrozhka open-line.
At the station there has been installed the complex cybersecurity system CCSS-EL (developed and produced by The 1520 Signaling Division) to guarantee information security and protection against malicious programs. In addition the imported processor of the traffic control system has been replaced into a domestically produced CPU-EL.
The central processor CPU-EL plays a key role in the system of computer-based interlocking, providing:
- conversion of commands from the control system into orders that are passed over to points, signals, and other wayside objects;
- locking the objects on the route;
- automated and emergency route release;
- performance of other interlocking functions.
At the open line Somovo – Otrozhka, the Division specialists have installed a modern automatic line block system ALB-EL. Now the capacity of this line will increase, and traffic will be safer.
We would like to express our gratitude to all the employees of the Signaling Division GC 1520 involved in the launch of the station and the open line.
