Meets and exceeds FRA, IEEE, GM/RT and EEIG crash protection standards
Recording vehicle data is essential to operating and maintaining safe and efficient vehicles, and providing an effective health monitoring system. Recorded data provides vital information for accident investigations, train handling studies, fuel conservation, vehicle performance, and preventative maintenance programs.
The Wabtec Event Data Recorder is engineered for maximum flexibility, with multiple mechanical application configurations, including Rack, Base and Custom mounting to meet your immediate needs while allowing for future expandability.
The system is supplemented by a Windows® PC software package for service personnel to download and graphically analyze data from the Event Recorder.
The Wabtec Event Data Recorder is capable of monitoring and recording discrete frequency, analog voltage, digital input signals and Train-line network communications, as well as controlled outputs and optional features to support features that include a Train Monitoring (Alerter) System for operator alertness, remote download capability, speed display, auxiliary light control, horn sequencing, and various other control and monitoring functions.
Its internal Crash Hardened Memory Module (CHM) meets or exceeds the latest FRA and IEEE 1482.1 crashworthy requirements for event recorders. This Crash Hardened Memory Module protects data from the most extreme conditions, including fire, shock, crush and volatile liquids.
Train Monitoring System (TMS) or Vigilance/Alerter can be integrated within the event recorder to ensures operator vigilance at all times. The TMS examines the engineer's control handling actions and will automatically bring the train to a stop should the engineer become incapacitated or unable to perform normal duties.
