Semantics

Best Practice / Examples

The properties of an interlocking itself can be described by some general attributes of its configuration. This information is used for specifying particular characteristics of the interlocking system.

  • @model – This contains the vendor-specific model or make of the interlocking system, e.g. Simis-C, VPI, NSI-63, Thales-L90, Smartlock, Westrace MkII, Westlock, SSI.
  • @technologyType – It gives the basic type of technology the interlocking is using. It can be one of the following:
    • manual – The operation of field elements is done by signalman directly outside near the element itself. There may be some lock dependencies for basic safety principles.
    • mechanical – The operation of field elements is done by mechanical transmission of power from a centralised signalbox to the outside locations. Mechanical locking beds ensure the safety principles to avoid conflicting operation.
    • electromechanical – The operation of field elements is done by a combination of electric and mechanical systems to transmit the power from a centralised signalbox to the outside locations. It is just a mechanical interlock where the transmission to the outside is done by electrical cables to power individual engines at the elements. The interlocking logic is mainly mechanically.
    • relay – The operation of field elements is done by electric power. The interlocking logic is realised by relay circuits.
    • electronic - The operation of field elements is done by electric power. The interlocking logic is realised by electronic devices like programmable logic circuits (PLC) or computers.
    • digital – This is the next evolution step from electronic interlocking. The interlocking is communicating to the field elements by digital connection. The power supply may be independent of this.
    • other:… – The technology is of another type. This is the optional extension of the list. Each entry needs to start with the string “other:” and shall have at least two letters in addition.
  • @SWversion – This contains the installed software version of an electronic interlocking for information. In most cases this will be a vendor specific string.
  • @signalSystem – This contains the name of the signal system the interlocking is controlling for information.

The configuration example below just shows the use of the attributes without using realistic values especially for @model and @SWversion.
