The ZUB system uses the following signals:
|ZUB Signal||ZUB signal||Maximum speed||More info|
|Green signal||Local Speed||Proceed, The next 2 blocks are free.|
|Yellow signal||Local Speed||Proceed, reduce speed to stop before the next signal.|
|Yellow - Red signal||10 km/h||Next block is full, passing signal is allowed to couple.|
|Red signal||0 km/h||Stop, Passing signal not allowed|
|Green + blinking number||Number x10 km/h||Proceed,slow down speed must be reached at next signal.|
|Green + number||Number x10 km/h||Proceed with speed as shown by number x 10, the next block is free.|
|Yellow + number||Number x10 km/h||Proceed, reduce speed to stop at next signal.|
|No light||0 km/h|| When white cross is attached to signal: proceed, signal out of use.
Otherwise: stop immediately.
Signs used on ZUB tracks
The ZUB uses signs for the maximumspeed, the used ones are bellow.
|Sign||Sign||Maximum speed||More info|
|Speed Sign||Number x10||Local speed is the number x10|
|Track Speed||Number x10||Track speed is number x 10 from this place until the next green sign. Local speed may be lower, as shown by white speed signs.|
|Reduce Speed||Number x10||Reduce speed to number x 10, white speed sign will follow where speed has to be reached.|
|Station||Reduce Speed to 50km/h||Reduce speed to 50km/u before you reach the station.|
|End of ZUB system||End of the part protected with ZUB, appears when switching to other system (ATB).|
|End of train protection||From this point there is no more protection of track and junctions.|
Cab Signals and more
The ZUB also use a cab signal, in the RSG3 it looks the same as the ATB but the RSG2 is different. In the speedometer of the RSG2 a red arrow is installed showing the maximum speed, calculated by the train, to stay within the speed limit. Next to the speedometer there is a panel with a display and 4 buttons.
Since ZUB is a point based system, new signaling may not be received by the train until it passed a signal. Because of this, when a red signal changed to yellow or green, the cab signal point still force you to slow down to 10km/u. In that case you have to proceed with 10km/u until you reached the system or the train protection system will stop the train.
