Crossing Control Bypass Switch - DL



  • Easy setup and removal - Enhanced Safety
  • XCBS-DL works with Motion Detection warning systems
  • Simple means to prevent unnecessary operation
    of corssing warning systems during monthly testing
    or M.O.W. work
  • Eliminates the need for jumpers
  • Auxillary terminals for use with external indication
  • Color coded track connection harness




The XCBS-DL is permanently wired into each crossing warning system, and can be configured with either a removable or non-removable bypass key. Simply connect the track connection harness to the designated track connection terminals. To prevent unnecessary operation of the crossing warning system, insert the key and select "bypass", rotate the knife switch to "bypass" and the crossing is disabled. When in the "bypass" position, a Dummy Track Load is connected to the track wire connections in parallel with the rails and the crossing approaches are shorted, preventing unnecessary activation when track equipment is working in the crossing approach circuit. The opening of one track lead may be desired to prevent unnecessary activation with intermittent shunting on the crossing approaches close to the crossing.

The non-removable bypass key adds an additional level of security for the Bypass function. Optional hookup can be made to the auxiallary terminals to include the activation of a strobe or event recorder input when the XCBS-DL is placed in the "bypass" position.

Keys can be color coded and/or numbered for assignment to individuals. Railroad jumper policies can be maintained; instead of keeping track of jumper numbers and locations where used, the maintainer keeps track of key numbers and the locations where used.
