The railway lifting system consists of lifting jacks which hoist the vehicle at the lifting points placed at its four corners. It is able to hoist complete trains. Depending on the train length it consists of 4 – 8 – 12... 32 lifting jacks and a central control unit.
The electric system of the railway lifting system consists of the central control stand and the lifting jacks which are of the same structure regarding the electric aspect. These are connected by quick connectors.

Operating modes of the equipment:

- individual operation: moving the load free arms, adjusting the arms before lifting or moving them to basic position after lifting.
- collective lifting: simultaneous lifting/lowering of the train by the arms placed at the lifting points. During collective lift mode the control computer of the equipment checks the set synchrony aberration and interferes if it is exceeded.
- service mode: provides possibility of error correction or lowering the train safely in case of extraordinary incidents (exceeding of synchrony aberration, overload of jacks, other error message).
The iron frame of the lifting jacks is robust – support structure able to take eccentric load; the bearing of the lifting spindle and the lifting drive are placed on top of it. The lifting spindle with trapeze thread placed in the iron structure does the lifting. The spindles are protected against contamination by rubber harmonicas. For safe lifting a double lifting nut made of bronze alloy with good sliding qualities works on the spindle. The jacks can travel on fix- rail- or its own hydraulic carriages.
