Settore ferroviario, passaggi a livello. E' il meccanismo che dà l'ok (positivo?) all'attraversamento del binario. Esiste una dicitura di common use?

"Positive" is in parens because it doesn't appear as part of the phrase, at least not according to the several railroad-language web sites I checked:
