Abstract

The concept of the new high performance locomotive BR101 for the DBAG is based on the modular system design of the ECO2000 family. This article describes the design of its communication and control system with respect to the requirements of cost effective and efficient maintenance measurements, which are implemented in order to manage the short delivery times without major teething trouble obstacles and in order to achieve the guaranteed LCC values. The on-board diagnostic system is designed in accordance with the experiences of the ICE diagnostic system and the standards defined by UIC leaflet 557; it is supported by a central fleet mangement system connecting each locomotive via GSM. Thereby a big portion of preventive maintenance is no any longer dependend on limited flexibility of fixed installations for error d
