HEINZMANN - Experts for rail traction applications

Control systems for diesel-electric and diesel-hydraulic locomotive of HEINZMANN and RE are characterised by precise speed governing and stable and reliable operation. Their compact and robustly designed hardware components are adapted to the harsh environmental conditions in locomotives. HEINZMANN locomotive control systems are installed worldwide, in both passenger and freight trains, and have been chosen by leading locomotive manufacturer for retrofitting.

 

Tailor-made systems for locomotives

Locomotive ControlHEINZMANN develops, produces and distributes all components for conventional fuel injection such as governors, actuators and sensors. Depending on application, they provide the necessary control, protection and monitoring functions. In diesel-electric locomotives, they take over speed control of the prime mover as well as load control of the generator (AD/DC). This ensures maximum traction efficiency with variable excitation control.

  • Adjustable start fuel limitation
  • Speed set-point as a notch position, CAN bus, voltage or current signals
  • Speed and excitation ramps for smooth range transition
  • Adjustable PID maps for optimisation of engine dynamic at all operation points
  • Various limiting function e.g. engine speed or/and boost pressure dependant.
  • Extended engine monitoring and safety
  • Engine protection

Pegasos PanelPEGASOS traction control system

The PEGASOS digital control systems are proven in numerous railway applications. The HEINZMANN HELENOS control unit DC 2-02 forms the core of the system in combination with a choice of HEINZMANN actuators. Further system components for diesel-electric locomotives are:

  • Interface panel containing DC/DC converter for supply voltages > 24 VDC
  • Locomotive interface
  • Sensors for temperature and pressure
  • Complete cable harness
  • Junction box
  • HEINZMANN configuration software DcDesk

Diesel-hydraulic locomotives with up to 24 VDC supply don’t require additional equipment and can omit potential separation. Optional are input/output extension units and CAN bus interface.

Pegasos PanelPEGASOS Control Panel

The PEGASOS controller is a modular electronic system including:

  • digital controller DC 2-02
  • interface with excitation signal amplifier module and optional
    I/O extension units for analog and digital signals
  • DC/DC converter (24-110 VDC)
  • optional CAN bus interface

All inputs and outputs are opto-isolated.

Viking Traction Control SystemTraction Control Panel

The Viking Traction Control unit is designed for the railway environment and houses the following main components:

  • Viking Digital Controller ECU
  • Speed switch pcb
  • Protections module
  • Interface circuitry

The engine protection provided by Viking Traction solutions provides de-rating with respect to measured parameters; this helps to ensure that the locomotive can continue to operate safely even if a fault is detected. As an additional feature Viking traction can interface with remote monitoring; thus allowing operational problems to be viewed and diagnosed at the depot.

Viking Control Panel Viking 35 Steuereinheit
