ETCS Level 1

iCAB 1 series is an ERTMS/ETCS Level 1 solution for conventional lines (SIL4). It can be applied as an overlay to existing national ATP networks providing higher levels of safety, but providing an economical migration and early experience with the latest generation of signalling technology.

"Eurobalise" radio beacons pick up signal aspects from the trackside signals via signal adapters and telegram coders (Lineside Electronics Unit - LEU) and transmit them to the vehicle as a movement authority together with route data at fixed points. The on-board computer continuously monitors and calculates the maximum speed and the braking curve from this data.
