Automatic Comms Recovery: (TOPAS 2502B clause 2.61; TOPAS 2537A clauses 2.72 and TOPAS 2538A clause 2.71): Following a CAT1 fault, the system waits for a variable hold-off period before then automatically attempting to restart the system through the safe start-up sequence.  The hold off period starts at 5 seconds then increases to 1 minute, then 2, 5, 15,30 in the event that subsequent attempts to restart are not successful. 

Minimum Green Time : (TOPAS 2502B clause 2.28;  TOPAS 2537A clause 2.31; TOPAS 2538A clause 2.29) The minimum green time employed when operating in Vehicle Actuation mode is 12 seconds but is automatically reduced to a value between 6 and 12 seconds in cases where the maximum green time is set by the operative to a value of 15 seconds or less.
