Centralized Signaling Monitoring System(CSM-KA)

CSM-KA centralized signaling monitoring system is researched and developed independently by Casco according to Technical Specifications of Signaling Monitoring System and Safety Requirements of Signaling Monitoring System issued by former Ministry of Railways. The system is a vital equipment to ensure safety, enhance signaling equipment management and monitoring as well as an essential method to repair as per the signal status. It can meet the demand of construction and renovation of station yard for various kinds of railways and urban rail transit. Casco’s CSM-KA system has passed the site test of software and special test of hardware organized by Quality Test Center of former Ministry of Railways and got administrative licensing in advance in January 2013 (Certificate No.: REAC2017-00017). CSM-KA has been successfully applied to PDL, normal-speed railway, urban rail transit, coal mine and harbor.

System Advantages

  • Advanced computer software and hardware technology and modular software programming framework
  • Advanced network communication and database technologies
  • Advanced skeuomorphic graphic display technology and intelligent diagnosis technology
  • The system can notice the hidden trouble of equipment in advance and give warning, thus reminding the watchkeeper to find and solve the trouble in time.
  • CSM-KA is capable of pinpointing the equipment failure and giving an alarm to guide maintenance man to deal with it and cut the delay.
