Availability of selected route

The control table specifies the controls required for route setting Generally when the route is initiated the following checks are made to confirm that the selected route is free to be called.

Checks-
1. Points including overlap and flank points are either already set to the required position or free.
2. Directly opposing route not set.
3. Conflicting routes are not initiated.
4. Other routes of the same signal are not initiated.
5. Any other special conditions required.

Route Lock relays

1. Each route is provided with a pair of route lock relays NLR/RLR
2. NLR is a magnetically latched relay(BR935) –
3. It is having two windings.

4. When a route is released PU winding gets to feed and the relay picks up.
5. It gets latched in even after the feed is disconnected.
6. This is the normal condition and indicates the route is free

7. When a route is initiated the other winding gets to feed and the relay gets de-latched.
8. This prevents any other conflicting or directly opposing routes are being set. RLR is a neutral relay
9. RLR is a neutral relay, normally de-energized

10. Energises when the route is set.
11. De-energises when the route is released either by normalization of route e or by TORR.

RLR/NLR circuit

1. Each circuit comprises two parts.
2. Left side of the coil called positive path.
3. Right Side of the coil called the negative path.

4. Pushbutton commands (S)R & (D)R etc. are proved on a positive path.
5. All route controls and special conditions are proved on the negative path.

Route controls are mainly three types –

Opposing Locking – opposing routes with the same setting points. Front contacts of opposing routes and front contacts of opposing USR of route section past the signal are proved.

Point Selection  – all points in the route including flank points and points in overlap are either already set to the required position or free to move. other routes starting from the same signal are not locked out.

Relays in point control

Relay Description
Point NLR Normal Point Lock Relay.  Magnetically latched relay BR935.  point RLR to be de-latched first for latching NLR. When latched calls the point for Normal operation.
Point RLR Reverse Point Lock Relay.  Magnetically latched relay BR935.  point NLR to be de-latched first for latching RLR. When latched calls the point for Reverse operation.
WZR ↓ Points free relay. Slow to release relay BR934. Must be energized to unlatch point NLR and point RLR. De-energized whenever the points are called by route or individual point relay.
NKLPR Points set, Locked and detected Normal
RKLPR Points set, Locked and detected Reverse
NZLPR Points set Normal or free to be set.
RZLPR Points set Reverse or free to be set.
NWKR Points set and detected Normal.
RWKR Points set and detected Reverse.

  1. I am a signalling system engineer currently worked on a company and mainly we are doing basically EI Installation in Indian Railway. I want to get connect with you.
