L.B. Foster provide the control & display hardware to display data for the signalman. This can be in the form of the visual display at the signal control centre indicating the current status of a railway network. A schematic plan of the railway will be illuminated to indicate which routes are set and to show the current position of trains. Other indications display the on/off state of signals, the entrance and exit signals for routes and sometimes the position in which points switches. Many Signal Control Centres use a Mosaic Mimic System, traditionally identified as the “domino”, “tiled” or “mosaic” system.

L.B. Foster manufacture the World’s leading Mosaic Mimic System; Subklew SM24. The system which shows in/out display for train movement, built over 24mm or 48mm tiles. Incorporating indicators, annunciators and pushbuttons, the system enables the user to clearly see and interact with the live information. As always, the system is for mission critical environments where 24/7/365 operation is essential.
