Train with full control

AQ Mekatronik in Bollnäs has made the new high-speed train master controller. The model is called MC 400 and is used to control the train’s speed and braking. It is a redundant system with two custom-made absolute encoders from Leine & Linde in each unit which produce a digital output signal pattern. Micro-switches were previously used for the signal pattern.
