Trial of End of Train Telemetry (EoTT) conducted successfully between Kanpur-Tundla

Officers of NCR, BLW and RDSO remained present during the trial

EoTT is going to revolutionize the freight train operations: GM/NCR

Marching towards a new era of technology, North Central Railway’s Kanpur Locoshed successfully conducted the trial of End of Train Telemetry (EoTT) system o­n Sunday.

End of Train Telemetry (EoTT) is a cutting edge technology for operation of the train without Brake Van o­n automated system. It is an ambitious project of Indian Railways which has been put o­n fast track mode.EoTT technology willeliminate requirement of the Brake Van(last vehicle of a goods train meant for guard) and perform all safety functions hitherto performed by Guard for safe operations offreight trains. Thus, o­ne additional wagon can be connected in place of Brake Van thereby enhancing the scope of more loading and thereby augmenting revenue.

EoTT mainly consist of two units namely Head of Train Unit (HoT) which is mounted o­n the locomotive and a portable End of Train Unit (EoT) mounted o­n the Centre Buffer Coupling (CBC) of the last wagon. These two units are paired and communicate with each other over a radio link.

Brake power pressure of the last vehicle of the train is displayed to train driver in the Head of train Unit (HoT) display in Loco Cab of the locomotive. Whenever emergency brake is applied by the Loco Pilot in the Loco Cab, emergency brakes from the last vehicle is also applied which reduces the braking distance and time for controlling the train. Further, it will also alertLoco Pilotwhen pressure level of last vehicle move outside the specified limits in case of parting of train, derailment etc.

High visibility marker light in End of Train Unit (EoT) has been provided with facility of automatic switching o­n and off depending uponthe ambient light condition.

EOTT has Global Positioning System (GPS) module to indicate location, length and speed of the train. Global System for Mobile (GSM) communication module is used for transfer of data to server.

EoTT system has been commissioned in the loco no. 32266/WAG-9/CNB of Electric Loco Shed, Kanpur and field trial of EoTT was conducted by North Central Railway in a freight train between Kanpur andTundla section o­n 01.08.2021. A team of high officials of NCR, RDSO and BLW led by Chief Electrical Locomotive Engineer (CELE) NCR Shri P.D. Mishra was present during the trial. This EoTT device has jointly been developed by RDSO Lucknow and Banaras Locomotive Works (BLW). Further, 4 such EoTT systems will be commissioned in Electric Loco Shed, Kanpur based locomotives o­n trial basis shortly, informed the CELE.

General Manager NCR Shri Pramod Kumar, while commenting upon it said, “Trial of EoTT has shown an encouraging results. The technology is going to revolutionize the freight train operations in days to come”
