  • GPS Gateway Possible applications/system configuration
  • GPS Gateway was specifically developed for use on locomotives, in consideration of the high electro-mechanical and electro-magnetic requirements.
  • System solution for locating locomotives, used for energy-saving travel behavior.
  • The system consists of a module rack, a DCDC inverter, a GPS unit, and a processor system.
  • The rugged, rail system approved module rack is equipped with a backplane to accept system modules.
  • Cables are routed to the system modules from the front via connectors in the front panels.

System funktion

  • GPS Gateway provides verified position data. The received GPS data are validated, analyzed, screened for errors, and then forwarded to external control systems.
  • GPS Gateway is equipped with a high-performance 50 channel GPS receiver that receives satellite signals via a GPS antenna on the locomotive.
  • The integrated processor system filters and screens data using several plausibility checks. These software filters ensure that GPS data are provided at a consistent quality (no inaccurate or incorrect data). This ensures smooth processing on downstream systems.

  • Data is forwarded to external systems via standard interfaces (RD 422-1 to -3).
  • A service interface (RS-232) allows functions on the GPS module to be configured for the respective application.
  • The power supply is ensured by a performance-optimized DCDC inverter that already has proven in the drive control of the ICE trains.
