POWERVIEW EVENT RECORDER

The Progress Rail PowerView Locomotive Event Recorder is built on our legacy of railroad event recorders and innovative data acquisition products and solutions.

PowerView directly integrates into the EMD® FIRE display as well as other locomotive systems, and contains an integrated, internal, field replaceable crash-hardened memory module.

The recorder has a full industrial switch and multiple Ethernet ports for flexible network connectivity, as well as digital inputs with the capability to add additional inputs for various requirements.

The included SATA drive bay with locking mechanism, when combined with industry-standard network IP cameras and a solid state drive, optionally expands PowerView to include full LDVR functionality.

Network flexibility enables multiple cameras as well asmultiple camera types to be used, all in a single MCU 5unit, saving critical space for other locomotive electronics.

It offers industry leading processing capability and secure, tamper-proof storage capacity, all in a compact design that meets industry shock and vibration specifications.

The recorder also focuses on ease of use. Integrated GPS for auto time synchronization, as well as a WebGUI interface allows easy access for configuration, system functions, and data access.

The Event Recorder comes with Progress Rail’s next generation PowerView Event Playback software for downloading and analyzing secure Event Recorder data.

POWERVIEW SENSE

The Progress Rail PowerView Sense module is one of several optional upgrades that expands the monitoring capabilities of the PowerView Event Recorder system.

PowerView Sense (PV Sense) contains an accelerometer and gyro module that easily interfaces with the PowerView Event Recorder system via a simple to install, single-cable Ethernet connection.

The PV Sense module is designed with a small and rugged modular design for flexible and standardized mounting orientations across dissimilar locomotive fleets. For example, PV Sense can always be on the forward cab bulkhead of any locomotive type, ensuring similar sensor calibration across an entire fleet of various locomotive types.

The 3-axis accelerometers and gyroscope produce IMU information that reports X, Y and Z-axis acceleration data, as well as locomotive pitch and roll data.

PV Sense is IP 67 rated and contains both an Isolated 10/100 Base-T PoE Ethernet Port (802.3af/at), AAR-standard M12-8 pin, A coded female connector. The sensor also contains an isolated RS 485 Serial Port for use with an option Ultrasonic Fuel Tank sensor. PV Sense supplies power to the Ultrasonic sensor.

External LED indicators visually convey system health, as well as optional Fuel Sensor health. The system also supports remote firmware updates via the locomotive Ethernet network and interfaces.

POWERVIEW IEM

The Progress Rail PowerView Input Expansion Module (IEM) is a signal interface/collector which enables nonintegrated locomotives to send data to the Progress Rail PowerView product line as well as EMD and other systems.

The IEM module collects data from various analog, digital, and airbrake pressure signal sources on the locomotive and aggregates this data and sends via Ethernet to the Progress Rail PowerView system and other systems.

The IEM module has an expansive array of analog, digital, cab signal, airbrake, axle tachometer, and current monitoring inputs.

Data communications is via an M12 Ethernet port, and supports multiple industry protocols such as Class C/D messaging.

Additional Traction Motor Current and Generator Voltage modules are available. These modules enable monitoring of locomotive Traction Motor and Generator current and voltage in a module that can positioned in a variety of locations. Connection to the IEM is via 4- 20ma current loop.

When combined with the PowerView Event Recorder and Event Playback software, the Progress Rail PowerView system provides a complete nextgeneration Locomotive Event Recorder system for nonintegrated locomotives.
