Automatic Warning System

Description

The Automatic Warning System (AWS) is a safety system consisting of 3 different magnet types (AWS 1, 2 and 3) and a locomotive-mounted detector (MagSense), designed to aid drivers in observing the fixed signals, particularly under adverse weather conditions, and is supplementary to the fixed signals which the driver must observe.

On bi-directional lines, special permanent inductors called Suppressor Inductors (AWS2) may be used to prevent a train receiving A.W.S. indications at a signal for the opposite direction to which the train is travelling. These inductors have a permanent inductor and, in addition, a suppressing coil which, when energised, diverts the magnetic flux, suppressing any indication to the train.
