With its functional modularity, flexible scalability and an Ethernet-based software interface, the FAdC permits a wide range of configurations. The savings on space, energy and investment costs increase with project scale thanks to state-of-the-art communications technologies. For example, the operation of small, centralized systems is just as possible as the implementation of complex systems.
Connection to a high-performance electronic interlocking is possible both via a customer-specific interface and the Frauscher Safe Ethernet (FSE) protocol. In this way, higher-level applications can be provided with all the functional and diagnostic information required. In addition, clusters that are spread along the track can also be connected via the Ethernet to form a decentralized architecture.
