HANNING & KAHL Innovations 2018

In rail vehicles, sanding systems are safety-relevant systems which ensure safe braking and acceleration. They increase the contraction between wheel and rail in order to improve the friction ratio. Working closely together with manufacturers and operators, we develop innovative and reliable sanding systems with modular structure and customized design. From project planning to design engineering, development to manufacture and sales, users get everything from one source.

The absence of moving components in contact with abrasive sand ensures the systems have a long service life. Compact design and low LCC costs are further decisive advantages for users. 

 

The characteristics of the system bring operators many advantages:

Sand quantities can be accurately dispensed.

Reduced sand consumption

The oil-free rotary vane compressor ensures rapid pressure build-up

Shorter reaction time

Pneumatic cleaning procedure after every use of the system.

Increased operational reliability

No contact between movable parts and abrasive sand.

Less wear and maintenance

Self-regulating heating cartridges prevent ice forming on the sand nozzles.

Greater system availability

Level switches monitor and signal fill level.

Improved sand management

The system does not depend on pressure-tight sand boxes.

No need for leak tests

To avoid differences in car body height and hazardous gaps between tram and platform when passengers are boarding and alighting, HANNING & KAHL has added a system for levelling tram cars to its product portfolio.

The levelling system ensures that car bodies are kept at a defined level in all operating states and circumstances. Several functions are integrated such as automatic adjustment of wheel tyre wear, compensation of the primary springs in the bogie, as well as levelling of changes in height (caused by passenger change). Position, travel and pressure sensors are used to control and monitor levelling so that wayside and vehicle-dictated clearance limits are kept, thus guaranteeing operational safety at all times.

GuideLight® –an electrically operated visual light strip based on LED module technology – indicates optimal escape route to people who need to be evacuated and thus enables self-rescue in tunnels. A handrail with integrated emergency lighting and optional cable duct acts as a tactile guidance system and can significantly reduce the risk of panic. HANNING & KAHL tunnel emergency lighting systems either be integrated into stainless steel profiles or glass-fibre reinforced profiles. One major advantage of glass-fibre reinforced plastic: as it is not electrically conductive, it does not have to be integrated into an earthing concept. It is also flame retardant and halogen-free. When selecting system components, HANNING & KAHL paid attention to reliability in use under adverse environmental conditions. All components are therefore highly flexible and resistant to temperature, salt water and chemicals, abrasion, pressure and cracks.

In addition to tunnel emergency lighting, HANNING & KAHL can integrate a further LED light strip with chaser function into the handrail profiles. These chasers indicate the correct escape direction to the nearest emergency exit in the event of an incident.

In order to use the LED light strips safely and without failure in tunnels, they require an overall system for power supply, control and monitoring. Our basis is the GuideLight® PowerUnit, which provides the supply voltage for the LED light strips. It is dimensioned for each project and verification of compliance with relevant fire-protection regulations is provided if required. In addition, an intelligent electronic module (BLDN) is integrated into each feed-in point, which communicates with a higher-level logical unit (HLU) via an interlinked RS485 network. The HLU works as a central unit for the components in the network.

Safety is the top priority in the tunnel and this also applies to the power supply of all components of the tunnel emergency lighting. Therefore one of GuideLight®’s special feature is that the HANNING & KAHL LED light strip integrates an energy bus with two galvanically isolated circuits. The LED light strip can be supplied from one or two sides. Even if one power supply fails, half of all LEDs remain lit.

Signalling at crossings

On the market since 2012, the GuideLight® system not only increases safety in tunnels as emergency lighting. It is also currently proving itself, for example, as signalling on crossings where accidents involving distracted smartphone users are becoming increasingly common. A ground-integrated signalling system can warn pedestrians and cyclists by flashing at danger points. In such applications, LED lighting elements are mounted in profiles in the ground to alert bystanders to the danger of an approaching train, for example. When selecting the materials, we paid special attention to robustness against adverse environmental influences, such as dirt, moisture and high-pressure loads caused by occasional crossing by road traffic. The lights must be clearly visible even in direct sunlight. GuideLight® offers optimal solutions for all these requirements.

The application range of the electro-hydraulic point machine stretches from line networks for mass transit, mainline and freight transportation to industrial and harbour railways. Apart from line deployment, point Machine H715 can also be operated in depots, marshalling yards, in tunnels and in electrical locally-operated point (EOW) technology without any restriction. It can be deployed in different kinds of flat-bottom points with various gauges, and ensures safe performance with regard to route setting, securing point tongues and continuous monitoring.

Development of this series was based on the specifications jointly defined by ÖBB, SBB and DB Netz AG. Implementation of the required safety functions and the resulting operational safety of point machine H715 fulfils CENELEC SIL4 requirements.

One particular feature of point machine H715 is its modular design and logical component arrangement which makes operation of the locks and the monitoring elements visible. Detector and lock elements are structured to allow simple, user-friendly checking and setting of all function and test mass for first installation and after trailing procedures. Modular design also means individual components can be replaced on site with minimum effort. As the individual modules are low weight, for example the drive unit (hydraulic unit with cylinder) weighs less than 30 kg, many tasks can be performed by just one person.

The robust design of the H715 ensures high operating safety. Long maintenance intervals (longer than 12 months) and short maintenance times mean low life-cycle costs. High-quality materials with very good emergency running properties and a minimum of components lead to long service life (longer than 25 years or more than 1 million settings) even in the most adverse conditions.

Today’s complex requirements of Vital Processor Systems as core components in control and safety technology, such as automatic train control, level crossing technology and electronic interlocking, call for safety integrity level (SIL) 4. To fulfil this task we have developed the new HANNING & KAHL Vital Interlocking Processor - HVIP.

The concepts which we have devised allow for current and future market requirements, customer wishes and modern technology. The HANNING & KAHL Public Process Data Interface (PPDI) in connection with modern LAN interface technology ensures future-proof realisation of process visualisation and telecontrol. Complex installations are simplified by division into local control segments with high availability. The number of interfaces realised and data services developed cater for all wishes. Standard peripheral components can be integrated via a special bus. Via vital communication, the vehicle detection systems, track circuit, mass detection circuit and blocking circuit of the HN-P can be connected to the HVIP, enabling implementation of complex installations such as depots.

The successful concept of modular design and flexible extension is continued in the HVIP. The processor systems can be adapted to the scope of the control task and thus scaled to the installations.

Detecting vehicles, determining positions, securing routes - HANNING & KAHL systems for vehicle detection make sure you have all these processes safely under control. In compliance with different project requirements, HANNING & KAHL deploys various proprietary systems to secure routes and for passive detection of rail vehicles.

HFP track circuit for detection of wheelshunt: while its axles produce a short circuit (< 0.3 Ohm, max.5uH) in the track area, the rail vehicle is reliably detected by the electronic system.

HSK blocking circuit for detection of the combination of wheelshunt and vehicle mass:
The HSK blocking circuit recognises entry of the rail vehicle passively by the wheelshunt (< 1 Ohm, max. 5uH) produced and vehicle exit by the diminishing vehicle mass detected.

In both detection procedures, a wheelshunt of < 0.3 Ohm or  < 1 Ohm is necessary. This wheelshunt results from the sum of the contact resistances of the line: rail –> wheel tyre –> axle –> wheel tyre –> rail. Vehicles should be maintained regularly to ensure proper wheelshunt.

However, checking/verifying wheelshunt and wheel rail contact on a vehicle can often be difficult. Individual punctual measurements on a wheel tyre are not effective in this case because the wheelshunt must be maintained on the rail over the passing wheel for the entire length of the track or blocking circuit.

HANNING & KAHL’s wheelshunt detector HAP II can solve this problem. Composition consists of a test track circuit, the length of which is to be calculated in such a way that the axle of one bogie leaves the test track circuit before the next axle crosses the segment. In the measurement segment, a HFP detector stage especially designed for the test track circuit continuously determines the wheel rail contact, the resulting frequency and amplitude distortion.

After the crossing by the rail vehicle, each axle is subjected to qualitative assessment by the HAP II. Speed influences on the crossing of the test track are allowed for by determination of the actual speed on the axle counters. The evaluation software carries out a qualitative evaluation of the axle on the basis of a tolerance range specified by the user. The easiest way is to use a PC-based traffic light diagram (red-yellow-green), or signals in the outside area which visualize the status of the individual axles to the rail vehicle driver. With interfaces to a depot management system digital vehicle protocols can be compiled and administered. To achieve high process safety and to also ensure the quality of the measurement in the long term, operating resources are available for maintenance purposes.

As a compact integration of load-measuring pin and display, the newly-developed HZM tongue-force measuring device provides everything necessary for perfect force testing on point-setting systems. The handy, light and versatile measuring device with a wide range of accessories has been approved for use in the networks of the Deutsche Bahn (DB Netz AG). We, the manufacturers of the HZM force-measuring device, have been certified Q1 by DB. Compact design, simple operation, large memory, high degree of IP protection and long operating time and service life, make the HZM a reliable instrument, especially when in continuous use. Setting force, setting resistance and holding force can be measured precisely, conveniently and swiftly. All kinds of forces can be measured with the universal HZM force-measuring device in combination with the different force-measuring pins – not only on points and point machines.

Lock Inspector

The lock inspector is a vital aid for assessing the safety of your point machines of the 61 and 61.1 series in trailable version. It helps you measure the wear of the locking component and enables you to take appropriate measures. The release path of the locking device actually required is measured. The result is displayed via an analogue dial gauge.

No further evaluation is necessary because the display is divided into colour segments and the results can be read:  red means no longer safe, yellow indicates wear reserve, green indicates proper condition.
