Monday was a special day for us at Oberpfaffenhofen/Gilching, because we built 3 modules of a track field concentrator (GFK) as a prototype. A GFC of this type is used in digital interlockings of the latest generation in railroad networks.
A GFK is a large concrete switch house, in which equipment for modern data communication, decentralized power supply and for the control of field elements (for example switches and signals) is used. In addition, networking with the interlocking control center is realized by means of state-of-the-art, secure IP communication.
