Extension Line D Tram Bordeaux | France
The Bordeaux tramway was the first French tram system equipped with a Frauscher axle counting system, benefitting from the innovative management methods like Counting Head Control.
The D line of the Bordeaux tramway is a tram line which is around 10 kilometres long. A significant challenge of D line is both the availability and reliability of the signals that allow rolling stock to move without incident.
The implementation of the Frauscher Advanced Counter FAdC and Frauscher Wheel Sensor RSR180 support the innovative concept of Counting Head Control. The patented management method can be implemented without additional hardware and compensates counting errors which are common in urban areas.
