- Driving railway vehicles
Special driving railway vehicles for light shunting and manipulation with railway wagons designed to ensure technological production operator onsite loading and unloading takes place.
- Driving rail vehicles biaxial - line 211
- Driving rail vehicles triaxial - A 314
- Driving rail vehicles quadriaxial - A 415
- Cable shunting devices
Cable shunting devices is designed for the rail cars shunting during their loading and unloading at the sidings, filling stations of liquid products and terminals. The device is able, according to the local conditions, to put in move and to brake the rail cars set with the total weight of up to 2500 t, device PZ 15 of up to 500 tons in both directions.
- Special equipment
The dynamic manipulator HW1E has been developed for the wagons rotary tipplers with aim to catch and stop incoming loaded wagons, their appropriate arrangement, and once they are unloaded, their pull out. An important condition is the observance of the velocity of incoming wagons, which can be guaranteed.
- Dynamic manipulator HW1E
- Electromechanical Train Wheel Stopper EMVZ-02
- Rail locking mechanism KAM-60-8
Electromechanical Train Wheel Stopper EMVZ-02 has been developed for places on marshalling yards and railway sidings, where the track operator regularly secures the wagons with a wheel stopper.
Rail locking mechanism KAM-60-8 is intended for locking and holding stationary railway wagons on inclined lines during operation with individual wagons.
Driving railway vehicles
Chassis of already proven locomotives are used as the basis of the construction to speed up and reduce the cost of the approval process of new types and the design phase. The chassis frame with wheelset, bumpers and couplings, brake system and descending gearboxes undergo a complete overhaul and modification for new use. Everything else, ie engine with gearbox, batteries, air system, electrical equipment, cabin with control panels, control system, hoods with lighting and other elements are new.
2 types of drive: electric from traction batteries and diesel-electric. An asynchronous electric motor is always used for the drive. For traction batteries, energy recovery is used when braking the set.
Traction rail vehicles are manufactured in versions without a cab or with a cab for the operator.
Rail locotractors without a cab are always controlled by a remote radio set, where the operator stands in a clear place in the track or on the gallery of the vehicle. It does not require a driver to operate it, but only trained persons with pusher authority. Their operation is limited to a closed company siding circuit.
Shunting locomotives have an operator's cab with control panels in both directions, driver's license is required for driving. A remote control for unattended control in the cab is also available on request.
