The Viking Traction Control unit is designed for the railway environment and houses
the following main components:
- Viking Digital Controller ECU
- Speed switch pcb
- Protections module
- Interface circuitry
Viking Traction software is tailored to meet the needs of the engine and the
locomotive. All engine management functions are programmed in and there is the additional safety of hardwired shutdowns.
The engine protection provided by Viking Traction solutions provides de-rating with
respect to measured parameters; this helps to ensure that the locomotive can
continue to operate safely even if a fault is detected.
As an additional feature Viking traction can interface with remote monitoring; thus
allowing operational problems to be viewed and diagnosed at the depot.
