Welcome to the official website for Argenia Railway Technologies, a professional engineering and manufacturing firm specialized in Railway Signalling Systems including Communications-based Train Control (CBTC) and Positive Train Control (PTC).
Argenia systems increase railway safety by tracking train movement, preventing over-speed derailments, (train-to-train) collisions, and incursions into established work zone limits. In addition, with safe knowledge of train position and separation, railways can increase efficiency by operating with less headway and at full track speeds. Unique product innovations also reduce the cost of wayside equipment and maintenance for the railway.
• Fail-Safe Design
• Full Protection from Non-Equipped, Maintenance or Runaway Cars
• Wireless, Solar Powered Options
• Alternative to Large, Outdated, Costly Equipment
• No Track Circuits / Insulated Joints Required
• Less Headway and Higher Speed Operation
• Minimal Installation / Downtime
System features include advanced warning, collision avoidance, speed enforcement, train separation and penalty braking.
Proprietary advanced digital wheel sensors (axle counters) measure train speed, length, distance, wheel count, direction and progression with great accuracy. Typical applications include yards, mainlines, private crossings, dark territory and include complete system integration. System modules can be installed gradually for improvements in areas of strategic importance.
Geographical Map of Real-Time Train Position
This geographical map shows the active trains from SafeNet CBTC. The coloured triangles and squares show the current wireless links to each train, which changes as the train auto-channels. The lower left area is the car storage area where all trains are stored when not in revenue service.
