IPD Inductive-and-wire sensor

Inductive-and-wire sensor is designed to control the occupancy of a pre-point track section. IPD inductive loop covers the whole area of the pre-point track section. The data received allows to solve the following tasks:

  • elimination of trailing a point when shunting
  • control of point area occupancy and elimination of a lateral impact because of an oversize
  • control of the rolling stock passing a point


Integrated automated control system of a sorting station, or other railway automatic system for monitoring the occupancy and the rolling stock (set of cars) passing a pre-point area of a railway section.
