“The ZKL 3000 RC is a preinstalled remotely operated Track Circuit Operating Device. It creates a safe working environment for rail workers and makes some impressive time savings by reducing line blockage times.”

Additional Protection on Line Blockages

RSS Infrastructure is the UK’s leading specialist provider of Track Warning Services. We have invested heavily in the latest rail safety technology and can offer the ZKL 3000 RC as Additional Protection on line blockages. We always strive to offer our clients the most appropriate protection methods tailored to their specific needs.

Install Once and Control Remotely

The ZKL 3000 RC is installed once and left in place for an agreed period. With the push of a button, the line is taken out or put back into service quickly enabling rail workers to work efficiently and safely.

The ZKL 3000 RC enables authorised staff, with the agreement of the Signaller, to take a selected line out of service in a fast and safe way. The unit is installed on the railway once. After installation, it is simple to switch the section on and off within seconds using an app on a smartphone or tablet.

Electronically Simulated Blockade

Once activated, it electronically simulates the presence of a train in the section, creating an ‘occupied railway’ message, which causes the signals to change to red. The railway section is immediately blocked to train traffic, and workers can carry out their work safely and efficiently.

Minimise Possession Times

One of the significant advantages of the ZKL 3000 RC is it can be fitted once, left in place and turned on and off via remote control as necessary. This ability eliminates the need to install and remove multiple units over and over again to secure a worksite. The ZKL 3000 RC saves a great deal of time and improves efficiency meaning more work can be done in the same timeframe. As a consequence of this technology, line blockage times are minimised, and there is less disruption to rail traffic.

Increases Working Time Available

The ZKL 3000 RC automatically set the signals to red without the need for a worker to go out onto the railway. Network Rail found this freed up one hour of additional working time each night on work on the Leeds – Manchester route. The work was delivered several days ahead of schedule as a consequence.

Environmental Advantages of ZKL 3000 RC

As the ZKL 3000 RC is fitted once and left in-situ, there is no need to install and remove the units along a route continually. The number of journeys by car required, along with the associated CO2 emissions, is dramatically reduced.

Data Collection and Connectivity

The device collects data using a wireless link between the ZKL 3000 RC and the cloud. You can link multiple units as well as the instructions during a project’s work planning process. The technology provides you with an overview of the working environment. The ZKL 3000 RC contains a black box that can be read from the cloud environment using an app and a web page.
