Electric locos

Electric locos class 380 (109E)


Manufactured: 2006 – 2011
Pieces: 20
Manufacturer: Škoda Transportation
Operator: ČD (Czech Railways)

Electric locos class 380 (ČD) and 381 (ZSSK) are designed for hauling the EC / IC / Express / fast trains as well as fast goods trains on the area of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Germany, Austria and Hungary and on the corridors of the EU electrified by 3 kV DC, 25 kV / 50 Hz and 15 kV / 16,7 Hz systems.
MSV elektronika s.r.o. supplies the module of superordinate control CRV_AVV, that provides the control of traction and brake systems of all active traction vehicles in the train with support of electrodynamic and pneumatic brakes blending.

The superordinate control system enables the train run in one of following regimes:
- manual, when the driver sets the required proportional traction and controls the train brake,
- speed control (“automated”), when thee driver sets required speed and running regime (standing – coasting – running),
- target braking, when the train running is controlled fully automatically based on the data stored in route-map, this needs the track equipped with the lineside part of the ATO system AVV
- full automatic train operation, that adds energy optimal driving strategy to above mentioned target braking regime.

The supply of MSV elektronika s.r.o. consists of two modules of superordinate control CRV AVV 91/380CRV_AVV_91_380 in redundant connection, that are designed as plug-in cassette that is inserted into Vehicle control computer, of driver’s keyboard BKL03bkl03, of magnetic balise sensor MSIBmsib_24_200 and wheel slip protection unit ASS06.1.

Electric locos class 381 (109E1)


Manufactured: 2011
Pieces: 2
Manufacturer: Škoda Transportation
Operator: ZSSK (Slovak Railways)

The locos class 381 for Slovak Railways are very similar to locos class 380, they are equipped with automated control up to speed control regime only, on the other hand, they are equipped with control unit of passenger information system and train broadcasting MODURAIL_ISC_381, communicator units VCA01VCA01 and with units for external noise measuring BMH01BMH01.

Electric locos class 263


Realization: 2010 – 2012, Škoda Transportation + Repair works Zvolen
Pieces: 10
Operator: ZSSK (Slovak Railways)

The locos class 263, manufactured in 1984 – 1988 in Škoda Plzeň, were updated for pushing/pulling of the push/pull double-decked non-powered trainsets class 951/051 (Škoda Vagonka). The WTB train communication is used.
MSV elektronika s.r.o. supplied for these locos the control units of passenger information system and train broadcasting MODURAIL_ISC_263, communicator units VCA01VCA01 and units for external noise measuring BMH01BMH01.

Electric locos class 363.5 (71Em)


Realization: 2009- 2013, Škoda Transportation
Pieces: 30
Operator: ČD Cargo

Electric dual-system locos class 363.5 of ČD-Cargo are created from originally single-system locos class 163.
The MSV elektronika s.r.o. delivers the superordinate control module CRV_AVV_71Em, similar to the variant used on loco class 380, which enables automat train control up to full automated operation. This module also provides the intervehicle communication according to Czech standard TNŽ 28 1500 (NVL – National train bus), that enables coupling and multiple traction e.g. with dieselelectric locos class 753.7. Next, driver’s keyboard BKL03bkl03 and magnetic balise sensors MSIBmsib_24_200 are also supplied.

Electric locos class 162/163


Realization: 2011- 2012, CZ Loko Česká Třebová, ČMŽO Přerov
Pieces: 13
Operator: ČD (Czech Railways)

Single system 3 kV DC locos class 162/163 (max. speed 140 / 120 km/h) were refurbished for operation with push-pull trainsets and driving trailers. The intervehicle communication is based on WTB standard and uses UIC cable. The locos are equipped with protection system HS 306, passenger information system, trainset door control system and emergency brake overriding system. The control system enables control in full Automatic Train Operation mode with standard localization using magnetic balises or GPS localization. The control system also enables active stand-by regime.
The original analogue units – central control unit, wheel skid protection, automatic speed control, traction current measuring – and original power supply units were replaced by compact control unit MODURAIL CRV-DPV 163/363, new power supply rack MODURAIL NK3 x63 and passenger information system control unit MODURAIL ISC x63 with GPS localization module. Modules for distant control CAN IN 01can_i_o, CAN I/O 01can_i_o and CAN UIC 01can_uic01 are used. For intervehicle communication, the WTB GATEWAY EKE of the EKE firm (Finland) is used.
The man-machine interfacing is ensured by 10.4″ LCD displays ZJS03zjs03_a and driver’s keyboard BKL03bkl03.
Next, signal lights BKS02Nbks02, screen wiper control unit VCA01VCA01, magnetic balises sensor MSIBmsib_24_200, information system displaying board TISE102tise102 or passenger-staff communicator VCA01VCA01 are also delivered.

Electric locos class 362/363


Realization: 2009 – 2012, CZ Loko Česká Třebová, ČMŽO Přerov
Pieces: 13
Operator: ČD (Czech Railways)

Dual system 3 kV DC / 25 kV AC locos class 362/363 (max. speed 140 / 120 km/h) were refurbished for operation with push-pull trainsets and driving trailers. The range and way of modernization refers to locos class 162/163. Control unit is marked MODURAIL CRV DPV 363crv_dpv_363.

Electric locos class 111


Realization: 2000 – 2011, CZ Loko Česká Třebová
Pieces: 3 for shunting service + 1 for line service (without radio)
Operator: ČD (Czech Railways)

Electric DC shunting locos were refurbished to enable automatic speed control and radio distant control from the dispatcher’s room of the hump yard in station Nymburk.
In manual regime, the proportional traction is set by the control lever.
In automatic speed control regime, the required speed is entered by driver. The accuracy of regulation is +/- 1 km/h in the whole range of the changing load – as single wagons separate during the pushing to the hump.
In distant control regime, the required direction and speed are sent from the dispatcher’s room. The driver can take the control of the locomotive anytime.
