The Minimel Lynx warning system warns people in the vicinity of the track of approaching trains. When used as a "Lookout Operated Warning System" (LOWS), the detection of train movements by persons (pre-warners) is done manually. The HSF-L handheld transmitter reports the detected train to the EZE-L control centre, which triggers the acoustic and visual warning. The departure of the train from the construction site is also acknowledged manually at the EZE-L control unit and the warning is cancelled.
Minimel Lynx is used as a LOWS on construction sites with small dimensions, such as maintenance work, moving construction sites, vegetation maintenance or switch conversions.
