FAdC® for Data Transmission

With FAdC® for Data Transmission, any type of digital Input-Output data can be exchanged between different stations, enabling the exchange of vital and non-vital information for various applications. Each FAdC® functions as both a receiver of data such as occupancy information, or as a transmitter of information including level crossing controls and indications. This is made possible by an integrated IO-EXB card and Frauscher software protocols that allow information to be passed on to the relevant station.
