Tester of transit cables of railway vehicles REGONIK TPV 18

REGONIK TPV18 – the tester of transit cables of railway vehicles (refered as “tester”) is a service equipment for checking and testing of 13 and 18 wires transit cable as well as of appliances connected to this cable according to UIC 558 standard.

REGONIK TPV18 tester allows:

  • to test the 13 and 18 wire transit cable for:
    • short circuit (wire to wire, wire to frame)
    • interruptions
    • correct connections
    • insulation resistance between couples themselves and couples to frame
  • testing of correctness of functions and appliances operated using the transit cable
    • doors opening
    • lights switch on and off
    • heating switch on and off (MAV)
    • fire alarm signal (MAV)
    • emergancy brake pulling signal (MAV)
    • electropneumatic brake system (DB, ÖBB)
    • emergency brake bypass system (DB, ÖBB)
    • sounding of the carriage by a built in “gong” signal, or by connecting of the signal source to a “jack” connector 3,5 (walkman)
    • radio centre (tester works as a source and reciever of signals imitating other carriages and a locomotive)

Technical parameters

  • supply voltage of 24/48 V DC (16,8 to 64 V)
  • max. input power of 25 VA
  • dimensions 141x440x295 mm (without a transport bag)
  • accessories:
    • testing 13 wire connecting cable
    • adapter for extended functions used by DB
    • testing 18 wire connecting cable
    • adapter for extended functions used by MAV
    • measuring apparatus
    • user’s manual návod na obsluhu
    • transport bag

The appliance is built in to the ALMES box. It consists of to functionaly independent parts. The first of them is intended for testing of function of a transit cable, doors opening, lights switching. Moreover, on passenger carriages on MAV railways, for testing of heating, fire alarm and emergency brake pulling. On passenger carriages of Czech railways, DB and ÖBB also for testing emergancy brake bypass system The second part – specially adopted REGONIK TRU11 centre which can be used in position of servient, carriage or locomotive – serves for testing of the train radio. There is 26-pole connector on the tester to which the tested transit cable is conneted by means of connecting cable. When testing the transit cable for interruptions and correct interconnections, a measuring apparatus is connected one-by-one to all UIC connectors on the carriage or the train. The feeding of the tester is provided by the 24V battery in the carriage. Control buttons are placed on the front panel in two groups. First of them is intended for testing of transit cable, doors opening, lights switching, heating switching, fire alarm, emergency brake bypass system and the second one for testing of the train radio appliances.

Galvanic test of the transit cable

  • test of correct interconnections, interruptions and mutual short circuits
  • test of insulation status

Functional test

  • doors opening test
  • lights switching test
  • heating switching test (MAV)
  • fire alarm signal test (MAV)
  • emergency brake pulling test (MAV)
  • electropneumatic brake system test (DB, ÖBB)
  • emergency brake bypass system test (DB, ÖBB)
  • train radio test according to UIC568
    • in passenger coaches
    • in staff coaches
    • in locomotive
  • it allows to try:
    • telephone call of the staff
    • program transmission
    • making an announcement

The specially adopted REGONIK TRU11 centre which can be used in position of servient, carriage or locomotive is used for testing of the train radio appliances.

It is also possible to test correct interconnections and interruptions in the transit cable as well as all the appliances connected to it using the REGONIK TPV18 tester. All these tests can be performed by one person. The REGONIK TPV18 tester can be used in production factories, railway workshops, in depos etc. . The time for testing of the all functions of a vehicle depending on a transit cable is significantly shortened using the REGONIK TPV18 tester.
