RE Viking35 Traction Control Panel

Viking35 on High-Speed Trains

Three high-speed passenger train power units which travel along the west coast of Australia have been successfully upgraded to the latest Viking35 from REGULATEURS EUROPA (RE). The power cars had originally been fitted with the reliable and long serving Viking22 traction control panels.

The upgraded control panel communicates seamlessly with the power car load control system as well as the originally supplied ENGMON engine monitoring system which automatically records and communicates any engine related alarms back to the train operator’s engineers.
