Italian innovation in control and measurement systems


Clelia Riva of Torino-Piemonte Railway explains that innovation is an essential quality for companies wishing to be competitive on international markets.


T


orino-Piemonte Railway, the new-born cluster project (the fi rst in Italy) will


showcase at Railtex 2013 the regional railway complete supply chain and the most important features in terms of innovation. Talking about control units and measurement systems, two cluster member companies recently developed the following innovations.


optical measurement of the two rails and inertial measurement of the host vehicle frame.


It can be used to implement asset management & on-condition maintenance planning of the railway infrastructure due to the advanced features of VisioStack Enterprise Platform (multi-user post-processing application


for


data management, analytics, and maintenance planning). DMA-TMS is compact and accurate, and is installable on any vehicle, from rail-road to high-speed trains. All measurements are acquired in unattended mode (the operator simply gives the START and STOP commands). The delivered data are: track layout; track irregularities/track defects; rail profi les; track geometry with ISO EN-13848 compliance; and equivalent conicity.


DMA manufactures the only system in the world able to measure, if required, the complete cross sections and longitudinal geometry of the turnouts, under load, unattended. The DMA Track Measurement System (DMA-TMS) works on two different physical principles:


Thanks to its technical skills, state-of-the- art manufacturing facilities and fl exibility, AnsaldoBreda chose Prima Electro to design and produce two different control units, which are installed on the high-speed EMU V250 train (Holland-Belgium). The Bogie Stability


Monitoring control unit has two accelerometers installed on the bogie and is made according to the EN50155 regulations and SIL 2 certifi cate. The Control Unit for Hot Box Detection also complies with the EN50155 regulations and is SIL3 certifi ed. Prima Electro produces a turnkey service including boards, inverters, drives, UPSs, converters and complete control units for industrial and rail applications.

Railway-compliant 10.4” display computer for harsh environments


Michael Hennen of the SAMS Network explains more about the Kontron HMITR. T


he application-ready and EN50155- compliant 10.4” Kontron HMITR display


computer is characterised by an extended temperature range (EN50155 T3), reduced energy consumption and powerful graphics and display technology.


The fanless and maintenance-free Kontron HMITR with capacitive touch display or hard keys has IP65 protection on the front side to safeguard it against dust and water. Thanks to its robust design, it is well-prepared for many demanding applications in the traffi c and transportation industries.


The Kontron HMITR has long-term availability and offers high reliability and is designed to meet the main railway standards (EN50155, EN50121-3-2, EN61373, EN60950) and is compliant to CEN TS 45545-1.


The feature set in brief The Kontron Display Computer HMITR is


140 | rail technology magazine Apr/May 13


equipped with the latest Intel Atom E6xx processor (with up to 1.6 GHz), the highly- integrated Intel Platform Controller Hub EG20T, as well as 1024 MB of soldered RAM.


For fl exible integration into in-vehicle systems, the Display Computer offers a wide range of interfaces with Fast Ethernet (2x M12-D), USB 2.0 (2x M12), RS232/422 serial interfaces, GPIO CAN Layer2, as well as a loudspeaker connector (D-SUB25) and Audio Line-In/Out.


Additionally, standard Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0, as well as a SIM and an SD card slot, are accessible behind a service fl ap.


The 10.4” display (800x600) offers an energy- saving and long-life LED backlight which automatically adapts its brightness to the ambient lighting for best contrast.


For customer-specifi c extensions Kontron HMITR provides two PCIe Mini Card slots for e. g. WLAN, GSM, MVB and a GPS device is


available as an option. The HMI offers two data storage options: a NAND Flash SSD with up to 32 GB or an SD card.


An EN50155 compliant power supply with either 24 or 72/100 volts DC rounds off the comprehensive feature set.
