The Future of Mobility: Schaltbau at InnoTrans 2016

Schaltbau Group is constantly developing new products and solutions for rolling stock and signal technology that increase safety and comfort for passengers and goods. At InnoTrans 2016, the leading international trade fair for transport technology in Berlin, we present our latest innovations.

Rolling Stock

Within the last two years, Schaltbau Group has significantly extended its offer for rolling stock. The portfolio now includes integrated driver desks (SPII), sanitary systems (Schaltbau Alte), interiors (Schaltbau RAWAG) as well as information and communication systems (Schaltbau Sepsa). At InnoTrans 2016, Schaltbau presents its complete range of rolling stock systems for the first time. You can find us in hall 2.2 102.

Rail Infrastructure

Schaltbau Pintsch Group presents its newest innovations in signalling technology, track field and tunnel lighting as well as diagnosis and visualization systems for point heating systems. You will find us in hall 6.2 210.

The Signalling Programme

Schaltbau Pintsch Bamag is a supplier of the “The Signalling Programme” in Denmark. Objective of the railway operator Banedanmark in this project is to renew the entire signalling system through ERTMS/ETCS level 2 technology. For the “Fjernbane West” subproject, covering with the province Jutland the complete mainland, Schaltbau Pintsch Bamag will deliver 336 level crossings, 45 passenger warning systems and 75 staff crossings in total. Further benefits for Banedanmark are:

  • Enhancing the punctuality of all trains from 90% today up to 98% in future
  • Meeting the future demand in line capacity in all parts of the Banedanmark network
  • Massive reduction in maintenance efforts due to the preventive maintenance

For the first time Schaltbau Pintsch Bamag delivers 75 staff crossings (SX) to a customer. SX are railway crossing systems solely used by railway staff members. A SX consists of a signal lamp with high-power LEDs in a 360° beacon on the top of a pole. The activation and deactivation incl. the power supply is ensured by an interlocking. A module in a small cabinet on the SX-pole controls and monitors the high-power LEDs. In case of a LED failure the signal lamp will be switched off with a failure indication. A luminosity reduction for a day/night switchover can be configured.

Self-adjusting Wheel Sensor

At this year’s Innotrans Show Schaltbau Pintsch Tiefenbach introduces several new products with innovative approaches for the automation of rail transport. One highlight is the new wheel sensor DSS250 being electronically self-adjusting which makes a mechanical adjustment by hand unnecessary. This saves time and increases safety as the adjustment is recorded in the new electronic adjustment device. Recording data can be readout using an app on a smartphone or tablet.

 

New Axle Counting System TMC-AZ 2.0

The new axle counting system TMC-AZ 2.0 by Schaltbau Pintsch Tiefenbach can be combined with all types of wheel sensors of the manufacturer. It’s evaluation unit only needs a third of the space of indoor cubicles or outdoor housings compared with the systems having been offered by the manufacturer to date.

The system moreover is networked with state-of-the-art data bus systems and therefore beside the usual relay interfaces it offers various serial data interfaces for the vacancy detection of long block sections and for the integration in different signalling systems.

 

Shunting Signal TLs02

The shunting signal TLs02 is  applied in interlocking systems of Schaltbau Pintsch Tiefenbach. The light signal comes with signal lamps in state-of-the-art and energy saving high power LED technology. Signal lamps can selectively show two signal colours whereby the number of lamps on the signal screen can be reduced.

The light signal is the result of a successful cooperation with Schaltbau Pintsch Bamag who developed the LED signal lamps. Schaltbau Pintsch Tiefenbach designed the housing of the signal head and the associated electronics module providing the fail-safe control of the LEDs as well as a serial data interface to the interlocking system.

Tunnel Safety Lighting with LED

Schaltbau Pintsch Aben presents a new LED version of its tunnel safety lighting. The demand-oriented lighting system for standby conditions supports the rescue and self-rescue of travelers in case of accidents within railway tunnels. Developed in accordance with the regulations of Deutsche Bahn AG the system is subject to a very high safety standard.

 

Intelligent Low-voltage Track Field Lighting

The intelligent low-voltage distribution I-NSV GFB automatically controls and monitors railway station and track field lightings. Depending on the area of operation the lighting control system is available as an external cabinet with a base, as an internal box for wall mounting or as a standing cabinet for installation in control rooms with elevated intermediate floors.

Automatic operation is realized with the Schaltbau Pintsch Aben Micro Control Unit – MCU GFB. Interval timing is effected in accordance with a twilight switch. Manual intervention is always possible and switches the automatic operation off until the next day or night change.

Optionally, the system provides a computer-based control station for centralized distributor regulation via an individually adaptable lighting up calendar with radio clock.

PA LINE WEB 3.0

Schaltbau Pintsch Aben presents the third generation of its transregional diagnosis and visualization system PA LINE WEB. The new system also incorporates improvements suggested by our clients. For example, the integration of surveillance systems and the visualization of live and recorded images at the same time.

A major improvement was made in the data analysis capacity. Data can be condensed to analyse and graph large volumes in a shorter time. Points heating systems can be compared with respect to energy consumption, availability and frequently occurring disturbances.

 

Visualization Terminal IVT

The intelligent visualization terminal IVT is a control and operating device for point heating systems which complements the control units MCU and PCU. All relevant data is easily accessible via an 8″ touch screen.

IVT is optimized for front installation in control cabinets and designed for ambient temperatures of -20 to 55°C. A large number of interfaces allow for connection to other devices of the PA LINE MCU family. This includes Ethernet, CAN BUS, R232 as well as digital inputs and outputs.
