Zonegreen has installed its flagship Depot Personnel Protection System (DPPS) on four roads at Irish Rails principle carriage works facility, Inchicore in Dublin.
Physical protection is provided for workers through the use of powered derailers. Staff log on via contactless RDIF road end panels to operate the system, allowing for safe and effective vehicle movements around the facility whilst creating safe zones for personnel to work in. Visual and audible warnings alert staff to train movements to provide additional protection.
The new DPPS is futureproofed with modern electronics and offers greater functionality than it’s predecessor, along with remote diagnostics and reduced cabling, making it easier to set up and more resilient. Its innovative software design allows for depot upgrades whilst diagnostic features expand the lifespan of the product.
