Safetran 3000 Grade Crossing Predictor and 2000 Motion Sensor First Line Maintenance
The Safetran 3000 Grade Crossing Predictor (GCP) provides a constant warning time for control of level crossings. A single equipment rack connects to one or two tracks and monitors the speed of trains approaching from either direction. A warning time is calculated based on this speed. This is combined with the output of an integral island track circuit over the road crossing and used to control crossing protection equipment
The Safetran 2000 Motion Sensor (MS) provides a direction sensitive control of level crossings. A single equipment rack connects to one or two tracks and monitors the direction of trains with respect to the level crossing. Crossing warning based on whether the train is approaching the crossing and on the state of an integral island track circuit over the road.
Railway Signal Electricians and Maintainers who maintain 3000 GCP and 2000 MS equipment.
On completion of this course, participants should be able to:
- describe the purpose of 3000 GCP or 2000 MS systems
- describe the elements of the 3000 GCP or 2000 MS system;
- describe the functions of 3000 GCP or 2000 MS modules;
- describe the function and application of external peripheral equipment;
- download, read and interpret 3000 GCP or 2000 MS system logs;
- use the Keyboard Display to interrogate and interpret system status;
- read the fault LEDs to identify faults within a 3000 GCP or 2000 MS system;
- replace faulty modules;
- set up, configure and recommission a system;
- conduct routine maintenance procedures.
This is a theoretical and a practical based course that provides maintainers with the skills to maintain a Safetran 3000 GCP or 2000 MS system. The 3000 GCP and 2000 MS First Line Maintenance course is conducted on the customer’s operating 3000 GCP or 2000 MS installation (or in our training room) and is presented over two days with a maximum of 6 participants. Theoretical training consists of the basic 3000 GCP and 2000 MS operating principles supported with visuals. Practical training, the major component of this course, consists of using diagnostic tools, configuring a 3000 GCP or 2000 MS system, analysis of logs and on site instruction.
We give each participant a copy of the appropriate 3000 GCP or 2000 MS technical manual provided with the equipment. Participants will receive 3000 GCP and 2000 MS Field Installation, Commissioning and Maintenance Guide and a First Line Maintenance training manual. We continuously assess participant’s competency during the training and issue a Certificate of Competency to participants demonstrating competency.

Version : 4.2
- This course is best conducted just prior to commissioning of associated crossings
- We also recommend the Safetran 3000 GCP and 2000 MS Appreciation training course for personal who require an overview of the operation of a 3000 GCP and 2000 MS.
- This course can be extended to cover complete crossing maintenance with a Level Crossing First Line Maintenance course.
- A shortened version of the course that excludes system setup is available.
- 3000 GCP and 2000 MS is a highly reliable system and, as a result, maintenance personnel may not have regular opportunity to maintain their skills. The Safetran 3000 Grade Crossing Predictor First Line Maintenance Refresher training course revisits the skills already attained so staff can promptly and efficiently attend to problems. We recommend this course every 2 years for all regular maintainer staff.
- Related courses include 3000 GCP Design, Total Crossing Maintenance, S40 Barrier mechanism maintenance. A similar suite of courses is available for the GCP 4000 or we can provide combined 3000-4000 courses.
