Control system of battery-powered heavy duty rail flat wagon (TEBECO, UWB)
A control system for battery-powered heavy duty rail flat wagon based on the REX control system was developed. The manipulator is able to carry the load of 5-40 tons.
The wagon is controlled by a wireless remote controller, the control system secures the wagon, provides velocity control with smooth transitions and logs the machine activity. The utilization of the REX control system allows remote diagnostics over the Internet.
Hardware and software used for the solution
HW: ALIX control unit (Linux operating system), miniPCI CAN bus module
SW: REX control system, Modbus TCP/IP driver, CANopen driver
