Transnet Yard control – Actom

For this project OFT is responsible for the Arial installation, the supply and installation  of Optic fibre cable, Korenix switches , splicing and testing.

This project  is for yard control systems for Kazerne, Natalspruit and Springs yards in Gauteng, Newcastle and Vryheid in Kwazulu-Natal, Witbank, Belfast, Nelspruit, Komatipoort and Oosbank in Mpumalanga, Phalaborwa and Thabazimbi in Limpopo and Rustenburg in North-West Province.

The yard control system is a semi-automated system that replaces existing manually-operated mechanical systems in which the points sets have to be thrown by a yard operator on the tracks.

With the new system yard operators are provided with two alternatives for operating points sets, using either a trackside push-button or a local control panel (LCP) that, although a remote control system, is located in a line-of-sight position so that the operator can see the points or series of points he is controlling.
