CITYFLO 150 sub-systems

EBI Screen control room

The vehicle is supervised by the EBI Screen control room system. This is a modern computer-based control and supervision system allowing the operator to give commands through a mouse or keyboard with the facility to have the position of the vehicles and optional wayside objects shown on both, normal display screens and large rear projection screens. EBI Screen also provides train regulation for the system.

EBI Lock computer-based interlocking

The CITYFLO 150 system does not normally have interlockings in non-segregated or street areas where driving takes place on sight, but might have interlockings in segregated areas where the driving takes place under railway conditions. In these cases, EBI Lock computer-based interlocking is used.

EBI Track train detection

Detection of vehicles in the CITYFLO 150 solution occurs either through normal track circuits which supply continuous detection on the position of the vehicle or through loops that give a detection and identification of the vehicle at certain points, such as tram stops. The track circuit method is normally used when the train runs in a segregated area, and loops are used in non-segregated or street areas.

EBI Switch point machines

Point machines in segregated areas are normally operated by EBI Lock computer-based interlocking while point machines in the non-segregated or street area are operated by the driver using the tram location system (TLS).

EBI Light signals

The CITYFLO 150 solution uses two types of signals. Non-vital signals are used for train regulation information while vital signals are used to provide the train with proceed or not-to-proceed information in segregated areas.

EBI Gate level crossing

If level crossings are necessary in the application, then equipment can be integrated into the system.

EBI Cab ATC onboard equipment

The onboard equipment consists primarily of the tram location system (TLS) which sends the train's ID to the loops in the tram stops. The TLS system is also used to give commands to point machines in the non-segregated area.

Tram stop equipment

The CITYFLO 150 system easily integrates auxiliary equipment at the tram stops, such as CCTV, passenger information displays, customer emergency consoles and staff telephones. All of which can be integrated into the EBI Screen control room system.

CITYFLO 250 for high-capacity light rail/metro systems

CITYFLO 250 is a balise-based system with onboard automatic train protection (ATP) displayed in the driver's cab. CITYFLO 250 is designed primarily for light rapid transit (LRT) or metro applications running on segregated or non-segregated tracks.

Technical outline

The EBI Lock computer-based interlocking (CBI) system detects trains through the track circuits, controls the EBI Switch point machines, the EBI Light signals and any EBI Gate level crossings within the solution. The interlocking also gives movement authorities to the onboard ATP. EBI Cab onboard equipment ensures that the train does not exceed permitted speeds or pass beyond the end of a movement authority. This enables onboard ATP to use distance-to-go supervision of the train’s movements.

Increased traffic capacity

Compared with a speed code system, EBI Cab onboard distance-to-go supervision provides higher traffic capacity and increased passenger comfort. This is due to shorter headways between trains, faster approach to line terminals and a smooth braking curve that is either on or stop. All indications to the driver are given via the in-cab display.

Centralized traffic management

The CITYFLO 250 system uses the EBI Screen control room which gives the metro operator total overview and control of the traffic and the transit system.

This is a modern computer-based control and supervision system allowing the operator to give commands through a mouse or keyboard with the facility to have the position of the vehicles and optional wayside objects shown on both, normal display screens and large rear projection screens. The EBI Screen control room also provides train regulation for the system.

EBI Lock computer-based interlocking

The CITYFLO 250 solution uses EBI Lock computer-based interlockings. These interlockings can be either centralized or distributed, in which case the central unit is located in one place while the object controller units that drive the wayside objects can be located at some distance from the central unit.

EBI Link ATC wayside equipment

Information from the track is passed to the train through a Eurobalise located in the middle of the track. The Eurobalise sends information about speeds and distances and allows the ATP to operate in a distance-to-go mode. The information from the Eurobalise is derived either directly from the EBI Lock computer-based interlocking or through an encoder connected to the signal.

EBI Track train detection

The detection of vehicles in the CITYFLO 250 solution occurs through the jointless track circuit EBI Track 200 (type TI21) or any other type of track circuit that gives continuous detection on the position of the vehicle. The type of track circuit used is not important since the information to the ATP system is sent by balises. If necessary, axle counters can be used instead of track circuits.

EBI Switch point machines

A normal railway type point machine from the EBI Switch point machine range can be used, depending on what is most suitable for the particular market.

EBI Light signals

The CITYFLO 250 solution uses vital signals. The signals are used to give the train proceed or not-to-proceed information. The signalling system can be two-, three- or four-aspect as requested by the customer.

EBI Cab onboard equipment

The onboard equipment consists of EBI Cab which is a distributed onboard system allowing a modern ATP system with continuous supervision and information updates through balises. The system has a SIL 4 safety level in accordance with CENELEC.

CITYFLO 350 – Proven technology for consistent headways

The CITYFLO 350 solution is a system with onboard automatic train protection (ATP) and automatic driving through an automatic train operation (ATO) with the ATP information and ATO status displayed in the driver's cab. The track-to-train communication is achieved via audio frequency track circuits. The system is designed primarily for metro applications where only limited action is required from the train driver, such as opening and closing doors, and is used for trains running on segregated tracks.

Technical description

The CITYFLO 350 solution uses EBI Lock computer-based interlocking which detects trains through the track circuits and controls the EBI Switch point machines and any EBI Light signals within the system. EBI Track allows speed values, distances, gradients and other information to be transmitted. This enables onboard ATP to use distance-to-go supervision of train movements. The ATP also ensures that the train does not exceed permitted speeds nor pass beyond the end of a movement authority.

Designed to optimize capacity

The EBI Drive ATO system, part of the onboard equipment sub-system, fully exploits the capacity of the metro system as the train travels between two stations at a safe distance from other trains. The driver’s actions can be limited to opening and closing the doors of the train.

These interlockings can be either centralized or distributed, in which case the central unit is located in one place while the object controller units that drive the wayside objects can be located at some distance from the central unit.

EBI Link ATC wayside equipment

The information required from the track for precision stopping in ATO mode is passed to the train through a Eurobalise located in the middle of the track before each station. The Eurobalise gives the exact distance to the stopping point of the train and allows the train to adjust its braking accordingly to stop at the correct position.

EBI Track train detection

The detection of vehicles in the CITYFLO 350 solution occurs through the jointless track circuit EBI Track 300 (type TI21-M) which provides continuous detection on the position of the vehicle. The type of track circuit used is crucial since the information to the ATP system is also sent through the EBI Track 300 track circuits.

EBI Switch point machines

A normal railway type point machine from the EBI Switch point machine range can be used, depending on what is most suitable for the particular market.

EBI Light signals

The CITYFLO 350 solution does not require any signals, since all the information is in the cab. However, signals can be used to create a backup system in case of failure to the ATP system. The optical signalling system is then a very simple system.

EBI Cab onboard equipment

The onboard equipment consists of EBI Cab which is a distributed onboard system allowing a modern ATP system with continuous supervision and continuous updates of this information through the track circuits. The distance-to-go ATP system has a SIL 4 safety level in accordance with CENELEC.

Optional ATO

The CITYFLO 350 solution has an optional ATO system that allows semi-automatic driving (STO-level) with three driving strategies (slow, normal and fast) that can be selected automatically through the EBI Screen control room at each station stop. The ATO system allows precision stopping by the train at stations with a typical accuracy of +/- 50 cm.

Simple and effective

Inexpensive to install, the CITYFLO 450 solution eliminates wayside equipment due to its simple, reliable, contactless train-to-wayside communications system, permitting shorter and more consistent headways. The CITYFLO 450 system is based on the successful CITYFLO 350 platform. The EBI Cab onboard ATP ensures that the train does not exceed permitted speeds or pass beyond the end of a movement authority.

Low lifecycle cost

The EBI Drive Semi-automatic Train Operation (ATO) system, which is part of the EBI Cab onboard equipment, fully optimizes the capacity of the system as the train proceeds along the line at a safe distance from other trains. The ATO ensures smooth braking and acceleration, resulting in energy savings and less wear and tear. The ATO system provides precision stopping at platforms with high accuracy and automatic door operation. In semi-automatic mode, an operator may initiate station departures and close doors. CITYFLO 450 uses the EBI Screen control room to give the metro operator total overview and control of the traffic.

Seamless upgrade

Since train-to-wayside communication (TWC) is provided via two-way radio, the CITYFLO 450 system can be used as an overlay radio-based train control system to upgrade existing fixed-block systems.
