Besides the normal buttons on the panel, there are the so-called Außentasten (group buttons). These group button are available in a separate window to ease operating these kind of buttons. Some group buttons are also available on the Number Entry controls (if available for the signal box).

The group buttons are needed for special control actions. Space on the panel is saved, as each group button is used in combination with one or two of the 'normal' buttons. Moreover, in this way the concept of two-key operation is implemented consistently: the (accidental) pressing of a single key will never affect the operation, because this can be potentially more dangerous.

The group buttons are grouped depending on their function, and arranged in different colored blocks:

Switch Group buttons (blue)

  • Throw Switch Button (WGT) : Used for throwing (changing position of) switches.
  • Buzzer Interruptor (WUT) : A buzzer will sound when a switch or several switches have been moving into position for a long time. This button silences the buzzer.
  • Throw Occupied Switch Button (WHT) : Similar to WGT, except that the switch may be occupied. Normally, this button is not used.
  • Trailed Switch Reset Button (WAT) : When a switch has been trailed, a buzzer will sound. This button resets the switch.
  • Lock Switch Button (WSpT) : Manually locks a switch to prevent it from being thrown.
  • Unlock Switch Button (WESpT) : Manually unlocks a switch to prevent it from being thrown.
  • Switch Selection (KWT) : Changes which double or single slip switch branches receive input when other switch group buttons are used.
