Cautor is an electromechanical traffic detector on railroad tracks. Easy to implement and robust design, it contributes to the security of railroad networks.

The Cautor system electromechanically detects the presence of a train travelling along the tracks at a given point (within the speed range of 0 to 200km per hour) and controls numerous functions associated with its passage:

  • Grade crossing control (gate and signal lights)
  • Signal control
  • Signal light activation as trains approach
  • Points control in marshalling yards

The Cautor detector is attached to the rail by means of fittings available in various versions, depending on the rail type.

Cautor is the result of 50 years of experience, and has already sold over 200,000 units worldwide. It is deployed in France, on the SNCF (French national rail operator) and RATP (Paris transport authority) railway networks.
