1 INTRODUCTION

1.1 Overview
This document provides the specific guidelines along with Do’s and Don’ts practices for installation,
commissioning and adjustment of Multi Section Digital Axle Counter of AzLM system. This document is more
of a ready reference hand book for installer and maintainer for the system.

1.2 Recommended Tools

• Drilling jig from Alcatel / Chembre


• Tool Kit ETU001

1.3 Reference Count Direction (RCD)

REFERENCE COUNT DIRECTION (RCD)

RAIL RAIL
CONTACT1 SECTION1 CONTACT2

SK1 SK2 SK1 SK2

Figure 1: Reference Count Direction (RCD)

The reference count direction (RCD) must be defined for the track layout independent of the direction of
travel. The use of RCD ensures that the correct order of counting into and out of a section is maintained
throughout a series of detection points. Without the RCD the system cannot be correctly configured.

According to figure 1, axles are counted in the section when a train passes Rail Contact1 in the direction of
the arrow or a train passes Rail Contact2 in the opposite direction of the arrow. Axles are counted out of the
section when a train passes Rail Contact1 in the opposite direction of the arrow or a train passes Rail
Contact2 in the direction of the arrow.

2 INSTALLATION OF RAIL CONTACTS (SK30H)

Figure 2: Fitting of Rail Contacts on Rail Web

2.1 Selection of Installation Point on Rail

• When choosing the new location for installing Rail Contact, all signalling aspects like overlap, shunting
limits etc. have to be considered.

• The rail contact is mounted on the rail as shown in Fig. 2 between two sleepers.

• Any embossments on the rail web must be removed else another location for the rail contact has to be
selected.

• On double-track lines the rail contact should be mounted preferably on the outside rail.

• Recommended spacing
≥ 1 m Distance to a rail joint (fishplated or welded or insulating joint)

If the condition of the track is poor, the rail contact should have a distance of approximately 2 m to the
next welded rail joint. This is recommended for reducing strain on rail contacts due to vibration.

• Mandatory spacing

≥ 2 m Distance to the rail contact of same type (Sk30, Sk30H) of a neighbouring detection
point. This is recommended for avoiding influence of flux between each other.

• The operator must ensure that other equipment used or installed at the track does not influence the
correct functioning of the detection points of Zp30H (AzLM) (e.g. detection points of other
manufacturers).

2.2 Rail Mounting Holes
It is extremely important that the mounting holes are drilled in the correct position to ensure accurate
adjustment of the Rail Contacts and therefore reliable working of the system.

The following approximation formula can be used for calculating the height of the holes on the rail web. It is
to be noted that all the heights are to be measured from the foot of the rail.

Approximation formula a = (0.409 * h)

It is important to note that, this formula is only a general one for an intial guideline. Experience from a pilot
installation is more indicative for actual height. Same applies for old rails or rail with other profile.

Figure 3: Drilling Position for installation of Rail Contacts

a1, a2, a3 must not differ from


a= a calculated ± 1.5 mm
each other by more than 1 mm.
b= 13 mm ± 0.2 mm
c= 148 mm ±0.2 mm

As seen in Fig. 3, position "a" of the mounting holes depends mainly upon the height of the rail “h”.

Indicative examples for various rail profiles with a rail height between 140 mm and 180 mm and a rail
width between 125 mm and 150 mm are indicated in the following table. They refer to "Flat Bottom" rail
profiles as shown in Figure 3. Suitability of other rail profiles such as "Bullhead" or rails with a width less
than 125 mm or larger than 150 mm must be individually established.

Rail Profile 90 lb 52 Kg 60 Kg
a [mm] 56 mm 63 mm 68 mm

With the calculated dimension "a", the maximum adjustment of the Tx heads should be possible without
infringing on the clearance profile or touching the rail.

2.3 Drilling
The final three holes of diameter 13mm are to be made on the rail web. A pilot drill of 6mm or 8mm
diameter can be made for convinience.

2.4 Use of Drilling Jig (Recommended)


The drilling jig consists of:
• Drilling template
• Mounting device for the drilling machine
• Templates for the standard rail profiles
• Fastening device
• The drilling machine

Optionally, drilling machine may be made available from Eldyne.

2.5 Mounting of Rail Contact

• The rail contact must be mounted on the rail so that the Tx heads are on the outside and the Rx heads
on the inside of the rail. The heads may get damaged if left loose on the rail.
The three M12 bolts must be tightened to 45 Nm by means of an adjustable torque wrench supplied
only with the Tool Kit ETU001.

• Each Tx head is mounted on an aluminium casting with two M8 bolts. It is important that the teeth and
grooves of the aluminium casting and the Tx head are correctly lined-up.
The four M8 bolts must be tightened to 25 Nm by means of an adjustable torque wrench supplied only
with the Tool Kit ETU001.

Note:

• After tightening the nuts, the bolts should protrude a minimum of 2mm. If it is less than 2mm the
transmitter head and the aluminium casting must be re-checked for correct fitting.

• The transmitter head must not touch the rail-head.

• The brackets for the protective hose must be insulated from the rail. For this purpose nylon bushes are
inserted into the holes of the bracket.

• The rail contact cables are protected electrically and physically by means of protective hose.

• Mark the rail contact integral cables, before putting them inside the protective hose, as Sk1 / Sk2
according to reference count direction so that after taking out from the other end of the protective hose,
those cables can be identified easily.

• The protective hose must be cut to the correct length before the cable is inserted. The hose must be
made watertight with a rubber seal on the rail contact side and the hose clamp on the side of the EAK.

• The length of the protecting hose must be adequate to ensure that the necessary support for the cable at
the heads is provided and that the hose clamp at the EAK can be correctly installed.

• Exposed integral cables of rail contact at the Tx & Rx side should have adequate radius of curvature so
as to avoid stress on the cable. Measure should be taken that, this exposed part of the cable does not
touch the sharp edge of the ballast.

• The integral cables of rail contacts must be laid avoiding loops (i.e. going directly away from the track
and then at a right angle into the electronic unit). The integral cables of the rail contact are available
with three different lengths 4m, 5.5m and 8m. Choosing right length of integral cable is very important
before installation.

• The rail contacts are now ready to get connected to the electronic unit. The cable should not be
shortened.

• Deflector plates to be installed as shown in figure 5, to protect the rail contacts from hanging metal
objects from passing train.

Deflector Plates

3. Installation of Track-Side Electronic Unit (EAK)

3.1. Housing Of the Equipment

It is strongly recommended to house the EAK in the Mushroom Cover, if installed, out side the location box.

EPC 001 – CI Lockable Mushroom Cover with SS stand is optionally available from Eldyne.

If EAK is placed inside the location box it is recommended to house the EAK with a dust cover also available
optionally from Eldyne.

3.2 Connections

To obtain the correct direction of counting, an axle counter reference direction has been defined. This would
normally be the direction of increasing mileage.

The rail contact that is first crossed by an axle in the axle counter reference direction is defined as rail
contact 1 (Rx1/Tx1) and the other rail contact as rail contact 2 (Rx2/Tx2).

The contacts are connected according to this definition to the terminals of the electronic unit. (see table
below).

It is mandetory to provide a shorting link between terminal 2 & 1 and 12 & 11 if the same pair of
conductors is used for superimposed data & power supply to the EAK.

Note:
If separate power supply is used for installation, the communication line has to be connected
between terminals 3 & 13 and the 60V power supply has to be connected to terminals 1 &
11.

4. Checking Of Power Supply

Recommended power supply for track-side electronic unit (EAK) for AzLM is

• 54 VDC to 72 VDC. The power consumption per EAK is 9W (appoximately).

• The ripple content of the power supply is recommended to be lower than 24mV peak to peak.

• Extreme care should be taken to see that the power source does not have any change over time from
mains to battery during mains failure.

• Care should also be taken to see that power supply does not have any kick beyond upper tolarence
value (72VDC) during startup or charging after power failure.

• Care should also be taken that power supply source is not under / over loaded beyond it’s specification.

Before installation the available voltages are to be checked at the power supply connectors 1 & 11. This
must be ensured that in all the conditions the available power supply voltages should be in the above
tolerance limit (54VDC to 72VDC).

As there is a SMPS based DC-DC converter in the analog card, it takes much higher current during startup.
Therefore care should be taken considering cable resistance and available voltage at the EAK so that the
system can start up in a normal way.

5. Earthing of the Equipment

The EAK has to be connected to the earth with a copper cable of minimum 25mm2 or an iron cable of
minimum 50mm2. Other cross-sections may be necessary due to national regulations.

The housing has to be earthed to a suitable low inductance (approximately L<40µH) and low
resistance (approximately R<4 Ω) earth.

The earthing rules of the railway must be adhered to.

6. Terminations

All service wires of EAK (viz. Power, Communication, are recommended to be properly terminated
preferably with cage-clamp type of terminals of proper matching of cable cross sections.

7. Communication Link

For communication with the axle counter central evaluator, a physical communication link must be needed.
The system uses two wire ANSI T1.601communication protocol with ISDN modulation. The maximum
transmission distance is 13KM with a good quality communication cable having maximum resistance of
56ohm/KM and capacitance of 45nF/KM. Though the transmission level of the system is 0dBm, yet a
maximum attenuation in the communication link is 24dB.

For better reliability the correct pair of star quad cable should be used with proper terminations.

8. ADJUSTMENT OF RAIL CONTACT

8.1 Positioning of Dummy Wheel

A dummy wheel is required for the adjustment of the rail contact. On main lines the device is normally set to
40mm. During adjustments the dummy wheel must be kept vertically at the centre of Rx heads.

Figure 8: Positioning of Dummy wheel

8.2 Adjustment with Tool Kit ETU001

For adjustments, tool kit ETU001 (for detailed specification refer Chapter 22) has to be used only with its
dummy wheel, true RMS multimeter and adjusteble torque wrench.

For adjustment, the test equipment must be connected to the diagnostic port of EAK and the Tx heads are
moved upward or downward along the serration, if necessary.

• The selector switch position 1 shows the value of the output of 1st internal DC-DC Converter (Channel1)
in Analog card. This should be within the range of 22VDC to 35VDC.

• The selector switch position 2 shows the value of output voltage of 2nd internal DC-DC Converter
(Channel2) in Analog card. This should also be within the range of 22VDC to 35VDC.

• The selector switch position 4 shows the rectified Rx voltage (MESSAB1) for SK1. This should be positive
without dummy wheel. After placing the dummy wheel on Rx1 vertically on the center, the MESSAB1
voltage should be negative. In ideal condition and for proper adjustment of rail contact, MESSAB1
voltage without dummy wheel should be equal to the MESSAB1 voltage with dummy wheel but having
an opposite polarity. The value of MESSAB1 should be within 80mV to 1000mV depending upon the
drill position and rail profile.

Steps to adjust the rectified voltage:

• Turning the potentiometer (R2) on analog board, the rectified voltage without dummy wheel must be set
to positive maximum.

• The rectified voltage has to be checked with dummy wheel. If there is a big difference between the
positive value and the negative value, the Transmitter head should be taken pulled up or pushed down.
Taking the transmitter head upwards increases the negative voltage and decreases the positive voltage
and vice versa.

• After getting the positive and negative voltages within the specified limit the transmitter head has to be
tightened properly with the torque wrench set at 25 Nm. For proper adjustment the positive voltage
should be greater than negative voltage by a value not less than 30mV for achieving suppression of
spoke trolley wheels (As shown in Figure 10) so that the rectified Rx voltage does not go to negative
(Figure 11) with the specified trolley wheel. It is recommended that the adjustment should be done using
a spoked trolley wheel that is normally used in the section. For fine adjustment the potentiometer R2
may be used.

• The selector switch position 5 shows the value of reference voltage for SK1 (PEGUE1). This can be
adjusted by the potentiometer R1 on the Analog board and is made equal (or ±2%) to the value of
MESSAB1 as measured without the dummy wheel.

• Keeping the selector switch at position 7, the SK2 is adjusted by measuring rectified Rx voltage for SK2
(MESSAB2) following the same way as mentioned above. For fine adjustment the potentiometer R4 on
the Analog board should be used.

• The selector switch position 8 shows the reference voltage for SK2 (PEGUE2) and can be adjusted
following the same way as mentioned above using potentiometer R3 on the analog board.

• The voltage and frequency of the transmitter heads are to be measured by the true RMS multi meter
only. For this purpose additional probe set is provided with ETU001. These readings are available at the
connectors of Tx cable for both SK1 and SK2.

11. Axle Counter Central Evaluator (ACE)

Axle Counter Central Evaluator is the decision making unit for multi section digital axle counter. It has the
following sub components.

CPU Card acts as the brain of AzLM. Two CPU Cards are required for 2oo2 system. These CPU Cards
have diagnostic interfaces and an alphanumeric display. For a specific application, the CPU Cards used
must be loaded with the site specific software. Diagnostic interfaces are available on CPU Card to connect it
to a PC and check the system status, health messages etc. with the help of a diagnostic software.

Power Supply Card has DC-DC converters. It works on 24VDC and generates 5VDC and 12VDC
required for the electronic circuitry. Two Power Supply Cards are required for 2oo2 system.

Serial Card receives information from detection points through ISDN communication link and provides this
information to CPU Cards. One Serial Card can monitor maximum two detection points.

Parallel Card is responsible for providing section information. This card takes instruction from CPU Cards
and gives section clear/occupied output through potential free contact of relays in it. The reset of a section is
commanded through the Parallel Card. A Parallel Card has two non-vital outputs which are also
configurable through site specific software for getting different signals, for example, indication of
acceptance of reset by the system or a technical defect in a section etc.

All the cards are housed in a SUBRACK. The nomenclature indicates the number of Power Supply and CPU
Cards and the number of I/O slots present in the subrack. Different possible configurations are

• ACE-2-10 is a 2oo2 system with 10 I/O slots.


• ACE-2-26 is a 2oo2 system with 26 I/O slots.
• ACE-2-42 is a 2oo2 system with 42 I/O slots.

12. Connection of ACE
The following connections are to be made during installation of ACE.
• Power Supply to ACE.
• Connection to the detection point.
• Connection of relays.

Figure 14 : Backplane of Axle Counter Central Evaluator ACE-2-10

U1 & U2 are the connectors for 24VDC Supply to ACE. Polarity of the supply should be checked before
connection.

The slots S01 to S10 are used for I/O cards, either Serial or Parallel depending upon the site specific
software.

If the second subrack is used to convert an ACE-2-10 to an ACE-2-26, a flat cable with FRC connector of 10
pins is to be connected from C1 connector of the first subrack to the C1 connector of the second subrack as
shown in figure 16 (page 21).

Each I/O slot has 12-pin WAGO strip connectors numbered from X01 to X12 on the backplane of the
subrack.

If a Serial Card is plugged into an I/O slot, say slot 1, connectors X01/9 & X01/10 are used for
communicating (ISDN) with a detection point. Connections from X01/9 & X01/10 go to Pin14 & Pin15
respectively of the PDCU that is connection with the concerned detection point. Connectors X01/11 &
X01/12 of the same I/O slot are used for communicating with another detection point. Connections from
X01/11 & X01/12 go to Pin14 & Pin15 respectively of another PDCU that is in connection with the
concerned detection point. Connectors X01/5 & X01/6, and X01/7 & X01/8 should be made short with a
small looping wire to avoid cross talk between two ISDN communication signal coming from two detection
points connected with the same Serial I/O Card.

The pin assignments for a Parallel Card plugged in, say, slot 10, are given below.

• Connectors X10/1 & X10/2 are used for providing Vital Input No 1 (viz. Preparatory reset).
• Connectors X10/3 & X10/4 are used for providing Vital Input No. 2 (viz. Hard Reset).
• Connectors X10/5 & X10/6 are used for providing non-vital output no. 1 (viz. Reset Acceptance).
• Connectors X10/7 & X10/8 are used for providing non-vital output no. 2 (viz. Technical defect).
Both the non-vital outputs give 4-second pulse through opto-coupler for the conditions defined in site
specific software. Pull up voltages are required to use these outputs in electronic circuits.

• Connectors X10/9, X10/10, X10/11 & X10/12 give the vital relay output through the potential free
contact of two relays provided on the Parallel Card. The detail of connections is shown in figure 15. In
2oo2 system two different relays are controlled by two different CPUs and both are supervised by each
other. When both relays are picked up only then the vital relay connected externally to the Parallel Card
is picked up.

A free wheeling diode (1N 4007) should be connected across the vital relay coil as shown in the figure
15. This will help to protect the Parallel Card from higher voltage generated across the relay coil during
the change of position of relay.

The contacts of the external vital relay QN1 (8F-8B) can be connected to interlocking as per
requirement.

13. Connection of PDCU
PDCU is the interface between outdoor equipment (Detection Point) and indoor equipment (ACE). It has a
superimposing circuit for using same conductor for power and data. One PDCU is used for one detection
point only.

There is a 315mA fuse inside the PDCU. The power to the EAK goes through this fuse and if it is blown then
there will be no power at detection point and a red LED within the PDCU will glow.

PDCUs are to be installed on 35mm DIN rail.

In some applications (where local power supply is used to feed the EAK) the superimposed power and data
is not used. In that case, the PDCU should be used for isolation of communication line and only connector
no. 4, 5 and 14,15 are used.

LED1 The flashing LED shows the communication on the Ethernet interface.
LED 2 and 3 The flashing LEDs show the communication between the processors. In normal
operation both LEDs flash.
LED 4 Not used.

The serial interface is used to download diagnostic data by means of serial (RS232) interface cable. The
data download through serial interface is only possible with CPU Card 1. (Facing the Axle Counter Central
Evaluator, The CPU Card installed in the left slot is mentioned as CPU Card 1 and the CPU Card installed
in the right slot is mentioned as CPU Card 2 (Ref. Figure 24). Both CPU Cards are interchangeable.)

The Ethernet port is used to download diagnostic data using Ethernet interface. The data download
through Ethernet interface is only possible with CPU Card 2.

14.3 Serial Card

The I/O Interface consists of two independent ISDN transmission paths. e.g. in a 2oo2 CPU system they are
used for two detection points.

The LED goes on, if the ISDN link to the associated detection point is operational.

The LED flashes, if a valid ISDN telegram was received from the associated detection point.

17. System Diagnosis By Computer

For AzLM, the main diagnostic tool is the PC, loaded with a diagnostic software. The diagnostic PC must be
a Pentium PC having a serial interface RS-232 (19200 bps) port with Windows operating system. The serial
interface has to be connected to the serial interface port on the CPUCard 1 of ACE by a Nullmodem cable.
This cable must have female DB9 connector at both ends.

After running the diagnostic software, the system data (viz. Elements current data and Historical data) can
be downloaded and analysed on the PC. The historical data may be used to reconstruct the sequential
occurance of events happened in the AzLM system. The elements data includes status of section, detection
point, interfaces, versions etc.

The status of elements are displayed on the PC screen in a coded message format with date & time of
occurance. The diagnostic messages are explained in the following chapter.

Note:
The nullmodem cable should always be kept connected at the CPU card end as well at the diagnostic PC
end. In case the nullmodem cable needs to get disconnected, it should be disconnected from both ends. It is
not recommended at all to disconnect the nullmodem cable from diagnostic PC end but keep it connected
at the CPU card end.

Following steps are to be followed to initiate a reset.

1. The authorized person inserts the KEY, turns it clockwise and then pushes. (If optional Cooperative
reset key is provided this has also to be turned simultaneously by another authorized person. For this
H & R are to shorted at selection jumper J1 on PCB. If the cooperation / line verification is not
required then P & R are to be shorted).

2. While KEY is in turned position the RESET PUSH BUTTON for a specific section is pressed
momentarily.

3. BUZZER sounds for 3 seconds and then stops.

4. The KEY is then turned back anti-clockwise and taken out.

A reset operation is only possible when section is occupied or disturbed.

When reset is initiated for a straight line section, that is assigned for preparatory reset in the site specific
software, and the system accepts the reset, ERBM-02 front panel indicates that the system is under “Reset
State” by means of the PREPARATORY RESET (Green) LED. The SECTION OCCUPIED (RED) LED also glows
indicating that the system is waiting for a train movement through the section. With the passage of a train
through the section with equal count in and out of (>1) axles, the system commands the vital relay to pick
up. Contacts of this vital relay change the status of the OCCUPIED (red) LED to OFF and CLEAR (green) LED
to ON indicating that the section is now CLEAR. The RESET ON LED also goes OFF indicating reset is
successfully completed.

If the section is a point zone, that is assigned for hard reset in the site specific software, the vital relay picks
up immediately after commanding the reset provided there is no technical defect in the system.

Each reset is registered in the sealed reset COUNTER unit. The count increases by one after each reset
commanded by the operator.

Each train, now moving into the section, is indicated by the OCCUPIED (RED) LED. A complete passage of a
train out of the section is indicated by the CLEAR (GREEN) LED.

ERBM-02 is very compact yet extremely rugged. It is simple to install and operate. The unit is housed in
heavy sheet metal with scratchproof powder coated finish. Wedged mounting base gives the front panel
comfortable view and ease of operation for the operator. The detachable top cover is locked at the rear and
makes ERBM-02 tamper proof, yet accessible only to authorized service personnel if required. The field
cables have their entry from the back through cable gland and are terminated at cage clamp type Wago
terminals.
Only serviceable parts inside ERBM-02 two 500mA slow blow glass cartridge fuses.

19.1 Indoor Equipment (Example)

In AzLM system, the indoor equipments, that is, ACE, vital relay and reset box, work on 24VDC. Based on
the above table, an AzLM system having 8 detection points, 6 sections with one ACE-2-10 central evaluator
will consume a maximum current of 4.82A. Therefore the indoor fuse for 24VDC main power supply should
be of 5A.

19.2 Outdoor Equipment (Example)

In AzLM system, the outdoor equipment, that is, EAK, work on 60VDC. Based on the above table, the
outdoor equipment, i.e. the EAKs of an AzLM system having 8 detection points will consume a maximum
current of 1.36A. Therefore the indoor fuse for 60VDC mains power supply should be of 2A.
