Replacement of the control system of the locomotives of the 263 series by ZSSK

The aim of the project is to enable the operation of the locomotives of the 263 series (the original type of 70E1) produced by Zeleznicna spolocnost Slovensko, a. s. (ZSSK) from the control car of the 951 series of the newly supplied returnable multiple units produced by Skoda Vagonka in Ostrava. The main part of the change is the replacement of the original control system of the locomotive to a control system using components tested on the electrical units of the 671 series by ZSSK.

The parts that remained there are the original regulators of the main and auxiliary drives, the original traction converters, and all the other components of the electrical equipment including the original regulator of speed and slip protection. A part of the assignment was a requirement not to modify the control of the locomotive itself if possible. The remote control is done using the Wire Train Bus.

Basic features of POLL share in the project:

  • Analysis of the functionality of the original control system of the locomotive type 70E1.

  • Design and production of the specific CAN module converting the signal of the relative traction to be compatible with the originals circuits of the locomotive.

  • Design of an application program for the control system.

The main project milestones:

  • 03/2010 – Start of work on the project.

  • 03-07/2010 – Analysis, design and implementation of software of the control system of the locomotive.

  • 05-07/2010 – Development of the specific CAN module to require relative traction.

  • 08/2010 – Revitalisation of the first modified locomotive of 263 012-7 in ZOS Zvolen.

  • 09/2010 – Successful technical-safety test of the first modified locomotive in Bratislava.

  • 10-11/2010 – Tests of the remote control in Skoda Vagonka in Ostrava.

  • 01/2011 – Revitalisation of the second modified locomotive of 263 011-9 in ZOS Zvolen. Performance of the technical-safety test.

  • 12/2010 ÷ 02/2011 – Testing a prototype of the returnable multiple unit and both locomotives on railway test circuit in Cerhenice.

  • 03-04/2011 – Test drives in the area of New Zamky.
