Abstract : Dispatcher centralization (DC) is a type of remote control device with automatic control. It makes possible the regulation of train traffic in a 120-170 km section by pushing buttons on a control panel. Work performed at the institute of Cybernetics on the programmed correlation of DC and a general-purpose computer (GPC) shows that this combination can be used for controlling such traffic. The present work is a component part of the complex automation system for dispatcher control (CASDC). The GPC and DC are not designed for joint operation, therefore a transition (coupling) device for the two to work in both direct and return communication channels must be developed. Over the direct channel pass control commands composed of 17 pulses of differing polarity; information about the section comes as frequency pulses of 1 sec duration. There is a device employing 30 channels and feeding 650 pickups which connects the computer to locations to their relays to provide stability. A coder converts binary computer code into polarity code. The reverse channel consists of a frequency receiver, a distributor, a supplementary pulse interval counter, and a communication command storage.
