Integrated diagnostic and remote control system
A complete technological solution that allows you to capture digital states and analog measurements, to process and remotely control power and signaling systems.
The growing complexity of railway equipment, system needs, in addition to the reduction of response times and recovery in case of failure, have made it more essential than ever to adopt appropriate centralized diagnostic management and remote control systems for signaling and safety systems.
In response to these needs, ECM has studied the Integrated Diagnostic and Remote Control System: a complete technological solution that allows you to capture digital states and analog measurements, to process and remotely control power and signaling systems.
A key feature of the system is the considerable flexibility of use; with its modular architecture and the wide range of transducers and software applications available, it is in fact possible to extend the use of the system in all railway applications that require detection of digital and analog parameters, as well as remote control activities.
The complete configuration of the Integrated Diagnostic and Remote Control System consists of:
- Data collection system: including concentrators installed in the periphery (USTD), the management of data transmission and management of the central interface database with the applications of diagnostic subsystems (UCFD CPU);
Various specific devices for diagnosis that can be integrated into the system, such as:
- Remote control system and remote control of the signaling power systems (TCS640);
- Next-generation power systems for the signaling devices (SIAP) with integrated diagnostics and remote-control;
- Auto-lock diagnostic system (DIA BA);
- Rail temperature monitoring system (MTR);
- System for the registration of event chronology (RCE);
- Switch DIagnosis System (DIA DEV);
It is important to highlight the modular architecture of the system, which enables a phased implementation and the inclusion and integration of individual control subsystems. Some of the systems mentioned above, in fact, can also perform their function autonomously and can subsequently be integrated into the USTD network, with the advantage of using the same transmission vector for centralizing all the information coming from various diagnoses.
