BUES 2000 is the first system for controlling railway crossing equipment consisting exclusively of electronic subassemblies. A distributed computer system providing safe “two of two” structure on all sites and smart data bus CAN ensuring double transmission of information, create a structure enabling control of all processes such as: entering, processing, compiling and displaying data (also for the first time detailed diagnostic data for service purposes). Thanks to its modularity the system can be quickly adjusted to the requirements for controlling and service functions or railway crossing functions. All railway crossing facilities are fully electronically controlled. Since BUES 2000 system is compatible with both old and new subassemblies, it can be used on railway crossings on which previous versions of the system were installed.
The electronic interlocking system ZSB 2000, including block signalling components, is a compact system but at the same time it offers everything a modern railway traffic control system needs. A clear division between hardware and software and their modularity facilitate flexible and efficient selection of solutions both for primary and secondary lines, urban railways and industrial railways. The fully electronic interlocking system ZSB 2000 of Scheidt & Bachmann is designed for train traffic control according to applicable instructions and is approved for use in many countries.
