Wireless Operation of Point Machine ( WOPM ) – Safe, Scalable and Smart:

Background:

Points in Terminals/Goods Yard/Engineering Sidings/ Private Sidings are still operated manually leading to derailments and higher idling time of valuable assets like locomotives.

Introduction

With a judicious mix of conventional products (Relays, Motors) current state-of-the-art technologies and wireless communication, it is possible to provide a safe, smart eficient control of ixed and movable assets
of Railways.

Such combination of the legacy systems with the present day technology will permit Railways to do wireless operations.

With such a combination, Lab to Market have developed a unique platform which can be used for fail safe applications like operation of point machines, level crossings, etc.

WOPM has been designed on our fail safe platform and it enables the operator to operate the point machine directly. WOPM supports operation of point machine through APPs safely.

Applications :

  • Best Suited for Terminals/Engineering Sidings/ Private Railway Sidings/Industrial Railway Sidings/Goods Yards

Features:

  • Secure against unauthorised operations throughLogin ID and Password
  • Positive proving of point status.
  • Local standby panel to make sure operations are not interrupted in any situation.

Benefits

  • Avoids derailments due to improper point operation in non-interlocked yards.
  • Can be operated from remote distance in hazardous areas without risk
  • Can be operated by Loco Driver / Running Staff from the engine.
