Automatic Train Proctection System RAS8385

Automatic train protection system RAS8385 is an INDUSI I60 based ATP system. It is designed in order to increase the safety of railway traffic. The ALTPRO ATP system consists of the central device RAS8385 IS, locomotive device track balises and signalling and operating elements located in the locomotive cabin.


The main function of the system is to initiate automatic braking if the driver doesn’t comply with safety regulations. RAS8385 IS can be additionally complemented with various other functions like dead man’s system, train driver registration, event recording, speed monitoring, wheel lubrication and similar.


Track and locomotive balises are certified in TUV Rheinland according to EN norms 50121-3, 50121-4, and 50125-3. RAS8385 IS is tested and certified according to EN 50155, EN 50121-3 and EN61373.


As a simple system, maintenance is also made to be as simple and safe as possible. Diagnostic application was developed for the ease of fault diagnosis and system check. Additionally, peripheral units have their own test devices – speedometer is tested by SB18 testing unit and locomotive balise is tested by LMI18.


RAS8385 IS is connected to the driving part of the vehicle via two industrial grade connectors which serve as a link between the ATP system central unit and braking system.


System analytics is done through a simple PC application. All diagnostic data can be archived in ALTPRO central diagnostic system CENDIS.
