Platform Barrier Systems (PBS) for the Shenyang metro

  • Project period: Since 2011
  • Location: Shenyang, China
  • Product category: Platform Screen Doors

Since November 2011 the Platform Barrier Systems (PBS) by Schaltbau Pintsch Bamag guarantee safety and comfort on Shenyang Metro Line 2. Enhanced reliability of the metro system by increased passenger flow and fewer incidents on the track, long lifetime and effective protection against accidents at the platform edge are beneficial for both passengers and the operator. The PBS system by Schaltbau Pintsch Bamag allows driverless train operation, thus shorter train cycles, and therfore higher traffic throughput.

The sophisticated modular design and architecture is characterized by an efficient installation approach, ultra-low noise door operation and low energy consumption. The Functional Extra Low Voltage (FELV) power supply system avoids hazards by electrical shocks from the outset and is complemented by an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) for 2h full operation when public power supply is down.

Our Platform Barrier System products may comprise additional options like the DOORTRONIC® train stopping and door motion detection for driverless operation without Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) systems as well as customizable web based visualization. The system has a SIL 3 safe railway operation certification according to CENELEC EN 50126.
