Dedicated FAdC training facility supports local railway experts
Frauscher India and RailTel Corporation joined hands to establish a training facility for users of the axle counter Frauscher Advanced Counter FAdC. It is situated at RailTel’s office in Delhi. The facility was inaugurated in January 2019 by Mr. N. Kashinath, Director General S&T (Signalling and Telecommunications). Mr Puneet Chawla, MD RailTel and Mr Arun Saksena, Advisor/Signal at RailTel were also present at the ceremony along with Mr Akhilesh Yadav, COO Frauscher India.
As part of the training facility, a standard FAdC cubicle has been installed at RailTel’s office. Mr Yadav explained the system to everyone present at the event. Today, the FAdC is being used in major projects all over the globe. By its flexible interfaces and its functional modularity, it supports railway operators and system integrators in the realisation of various applications like track vacancy detection, level crossing protection, switching point protection, flank protection, CBTC fallback systems and more.
“Since Frauscher India received the RDSO approval for the FAdC, this innovative axle counter has been installed in more and more projects throughout India and beyond its borders. Comprehensive training supports engineers and railway experts involved in these projects in understanding the system’s functionality and maintenance. Our close cooperation with RailTel was an important milestone in establishing an appropriate facility”, Mr. Yadav says.
