GSM-R transmitting and receiving systems

Electronic interlockingOptimum radio coverage thanks to maximum system availability

Most GSM-R (Global System for Mobile Communication - Railway) radio masts are in exposed locations in order to ensure a good transmission range. As a result, the risk of a direct lightning strike is particularly high. Professional lightning and surge protection is essential to maximise system availability and protect people in the vicinity.


The advantages for you of using a DEHN solution to protect GSM-R systems:

  • Personal protection
  • Maximum system availability
  • Protection of devices and components
  • Optimum support of all those involved in the process chain
