Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9958388A2] The invention relates to an arrangement for transmitting a transmission signal (S) from a transmitter to a railway vehicle (12) on a section of a track (6) for localization and information transmission purposes. The transmitter (15) is connected to a track conductor (18) arranged in the section of the track (6) and having intersection points. The railway vehicle (12) is provided with a receiver unit (21) that receives the transmission signal (S) and monitors sudden phase changes that occur when the railway vehicle travels over the intersection points (K) of the track conductor (18) in order to localize the railway vehicle. In order to achieve low-interference localization, the invention provides that an occupancy sensor (33) is installed at an entrance point to the track section (6). Said sensor establishes when the railway vehicle enters the track section (6) and emits an occupancy signal (B) indicating that the track section (6) is occupied. The occupancy sensor (33) is also connected to a switching device (36) which is associated with the transmitter (15) and which controls the sensor (15) in such a way that the latter emits a non-modulated transmission signal upon reception of the occupancy signal (B) and then emits a modulated transmission signal after a specific time period has elapsed.
