3 Structure and Mode of Operation
The Az S 350 U consists of two main components:
outdoor equipment
indoor equipment

The outdoor equipment comprises a number of ZP 43 counting heads, in variant
E (cast aluminium housing) or variant V (plastic housing), with track vacancy
detection sections assigned to them. External wiring also belongs to the outdoor
equipment. The indoor equipment consists of the evaluation computer (EC).
These Maintenance Instructions refer to the Az S 350 U as well as the setting of
the counting heads via the EC. Corrective maintenance of the counting heads is
described in the Operating and Service Manuals for ZP 43 E (A25063-B217-H21-
*-76N9), ZP 43 E for Use at DB AG (A25063-B218-H21-*-N9, available in
German only) and ZP 43 V (A25063-B216-H21-*-76N9).
3.1 Structure

Figure 1 Front view of Az S 350 U evaluation computer (including slot numbers)
The plug-in boards are accommodated in a single-tier mounting frame with wiring
backplane. Dummy boards are inserted into the slots intended for optional
boards.
The SIRIUS2 board (serial computer interface universal board) enables the
communication between the evaluation computers connected. It provides two
serial, bidirectional interfaces for data transmission, each of them being equipped
with a V.24 output. The SIRIUS2 board is used in one channel only.
All inputs and outputs (CI, CI, AzGrT or vAzGrT, RR, RA, user-defined block
information) to or from the interlocking are done via the BLEA12 block

input/output board. Two BLEA12 boards (first pair of BLEA12 boards) are
required for the dual-channel Az S 350 U, one for channel 1 and one for channel
2. A second, optional pair of BLEA12 boards can be inserted.
Each computer channel has a STEU control and diagnostic board, which
evaluates the WDE signals received (counting head- and section-specific data).
The VAU processing and monitoring board, a CPU board, is the fail-safe
microcomputer (SIMIS C hardware core) of the Az S 350 U. The VAU board
provides monitoring and comparator functions for synchronised dual-channel
microcomputer operation.
One VESBA amplifier, trigger and band-pass filter board is required per directly
connected counting head. It provides electrical isolation between indoor and
outdoor equipment (counting head). The VESBA board splits the signal
frequencies f
1
and f
2
into two independent channels and filters, amplifies, rectifies
and evaluates (trigger) the data transmitted from the counting head. Each
counting head (CH) has its own VESBA board (CH 1 to CH 5).
The DIGIDO digital double-usage board is used if WDE information is to be jointly
used by an Az S (M) 350, version B/M, and an Az S 350 U (digital double usage
of a counting head via DIGIDO).
The SVK2150 power supply board provides 5 V for the evaluation computer and
70 V for the counting heads.

Figure 2 Front view of VAU board
Equipped with 2 MHz 8085 microprocessors, the two VAU boards make up the
core of the microcomputer system. They have 8 kB RAM and 32 kB EPROM.
Due to the dual-channel layout of the evaluation computer, there is one VAU
board per channel.
The VAU board is a SIMIS C CPU board, in which two independent MES80
microcomputers are connected without additional circuits to form a clock-
synchronised dual-channel microcomputer system providing SIMIS core
functions.
Each VAU board monitors and compares the synchronous and identical
operation of both microcomputers and, in case of a fault, transmits a switch-off
control signal (SCS) in order to disconnect the signalling and safety peripherals
connected.

After a system reset, the standard sequence of operations starts on the VAU
boards. In order to make both channels start synchronously, both reset buttons
on the front panels of the boards must be pressed simultaneously for approx.
1 second.
The SIMIS online test program (SOPP) is started after initialisation. The
complete, interruptible program run takes approx. 4 minutes. The SOPP program
is a low-priority program executed in the background and is always quit after an
interrupt request.
If both LEDs "VGL" on the VAU boards light up, the evaluation computer is
operational. Both synchronously working microcomputers process identical data.
A lit LED "SPW" indicates that the operating voltage is above or below the
permissible value of 5 V DC. The system has to be restarted.
A lit LED "PAB" indicates a program-controlled emergency shutdown, i.e. if the
comparator has detected asynchronism in the operating system or if, during the
continuous test cycles, a safety-related fault has been detected. This initiates a
hardware- or software-controlled shutdown and the evaluation computer switches
to the occupied state. The system then has to be restarted. The causes of faults
can be identified via the LEDs (LED 0 flashing permanently) on the STEU board
(see Section 4.4.2 "Emergency Shutdown", page 52).
During evaluation computer start-up, the LED "ANL" lights up for approx. 3 s.
For a synchronous start of the evaluation computer, after a failure, both VAU
boards have a system reset button. Pressing both red buttons simultaneously for
approx. 1 s will restart the evaluation computer.

Figure 4 Front view of BLEA12 board (left), front connector with buttons (right)
The BLEA12 board is the input/output interface of the AZ S 350 U. It has 12
floating relay outputs and 12 floating optocoupler inputs. Inputs and outputs are
made via a 48-pin connector on the front panel of the board.
The BLEA12 is a single-channel board. This is why the dual-channel Az S 350 U
system uses two boards of this type, one in channel 1 and one in channel 2 (first
pair of BLEA12 boards). A maximum of four track clear/occupied indications with
the associated reset restriction (RR) and reset acknowledgement (RA) can be
output. The remaining inputs and outputs can be used for freely configurable,
operator-specific information (e.g. block information). If the outputs are not
required for track vacancy detection, a maximum of 12 freely configurable,
operator-specific items of information can be implemented.

Optional front connectors with four buttons (T1 to T4) on the first pair of BLEA12
boards implement the auxiliary axle count reset button (AzGrH). By a dual-
channel operation of the buttons, the reset restriction can be cancelled for each
track vacancy detection section. By pressing only one of the two AzGrH buttons
(single-channel operation for a configured track vacancy detection section), the
normal display of the STEU boards is switched over to statistics display/
diagnostics.
An optional pair of BLEA 12 boards (second pair of BLEA12 boards) can be
inserted for additional functions. If the outputs are not required for track vacancy
detection, a maximum of 24 freely configurable, operator-specific items of
information can be implemented.
The operator-specific input data is read in via floating optocouplers inputs under
conditions of electrical isolation. The input optocoupler circuit is designed to
permit input voltages from 21.6 V to 72 V DC. The operator-specific output data is
output via two floating relay contacts.
The BLEA12 board has a MES80 bus port, which is used for exchange of data
with the VAU board. The BLEA12 board also provides the port for the SCSI
internal switch-off control signal, which can be used to switch off the power
supply of the output relays.
The BLEA12 board executes the following functions:
output of track clear/occupied indication (CI and CI) of up to four TVDS
output of reset restriction (RR) of evaluation computer for each TVDS
output of reset acknowledgement (RA) on successful axle count reset for each
TVDS
input of immediate or preparatory axle count reset (by actuating the AzGrT or
vAzGrT button) for each TVDS of the evaluation computer
input of cancellation of reset restriction (RR) by actuating the AzGrH button for
each TVDS via optional front connector
configuring by means of 96 DIP switches
block inputs/outputs for freely configurable, operator-specific information
The output of a track clear indication (CI) or an inverted signal (track occupied
indication, CI) is issued for each track vacancy detection section via floating
relay contacts. The BLEA12 board can output indications for up to four TVDS
(equivalent or non-equivalent).
The relay output system for the output of the track clear/occupied indications is of
dual-channel design, i.e. the output data is generated and output on each of the
two computer channels. To this end, each computer channel has two relays. The

relay contacts are linked to form two contact chains (one normally-open contact
chain and one normally-closed contact chain or two normally-open contact
chains). The outputs have to be linked and evaluated by the higher-level
interlocking system, i.e. they have to be checked as to their equivalence or non-
equivalence, depending on the configuration.

Thus, in the dual-channel Az S 350 U, four relays contribute to each fail-safe
output (track clear/occupied indications and freely configurable, operator-specific
information). It can be assumed as being fairly unlikely that these four relays will
ever fail in a way that leads to a dangerous failure.

3.5 SIRIUS2 Board
Serial computer interface universal board
S25395-B171-A3


Figure 7 Front view of SIRIUS2 board
For controlling the transmission system (data transmission between evaluation
computers), the Az S 350 U has a SIRIUS2 board.
The SIRIUS2 board provides two serial, bidirectional interfaces for data
transmission, each of them being equipped with a V.24 output. One of these V.24
interfaces has two control signals (RTS1 and CTS1).
The SIRIUS2 board contributes to fail-safety by providing reliable electrical
isolation between peripherals and hardware core. For the transmission of fail-safe
data, the procedure-protected data transmission procedure FASIT (fail-safe,
single-channel transmission of status information) is used.
On the front panel, there is a 48-pin connector providing the connection for all
interface signals.

The counting head is connected to the Az S 350 U via a two-core cable. There
are additional outputs on the VESBA board allowing to set up a digital double-
usage interface.
The VESBA board provides electrical isolation between outdoor equipment
(counting head) and indoor equipment. It splits the signal frequencies f
1

2

into two independent channels and filters, amplifies, rectifies and evaluates
(trigger) the data transmitted from the counting head.
The front panel incorporates measuring sockets for fault diagnosis, LEDs for
displaying the traversal state and potentiometers for adapting to different cable
lengths and setting the transmission levels.

When the yellow LEDs on the front panel light up, they indicate that a train is
traversing or occupying the track-installed wheel detector. In normal operation,
these LEDs light up shortly depending on the speed of the train.
If one of the LEDs is permanently on, there is probably a wheel at the position
where the wheel detector is mounted. If this is not the case, a fault can be
assumed. The LEDs light up if no counting head is connected or if the voltage
supply for the counting head is not present, interchanged or maladjusted
(V < 1.3 V or counting head connected incorrectly). Approx. 60/70 V DC must be
measured at the terminals for the counting heads. If no voltage is measured, the
fuses must be checked.
The counting heads are protected via fuse Si 1, which is mounted directly on the
front panel, and another fuse on the printed circuit board.

3.7 DIGIDO Board
Digital double-usage board
S25552-B699-U1


Figure 9 Front view of DIGIDO board
The optional DIGIDO board is used to switch through the digital axle signals
between the Az S (M) 350 Version B/M and the Az S 350 U. For digital double
usage (from and to other systems) either the digitised WDE signals of the directly
connected counting heads as transmitting counting heads can be used or the
digitised WDE signals of another evaluation computer are used instead of the
directly connected counting heads.
The DIGIDO board performs two functions:
The digital axle signal (TTL level) coming from the VESBA board (Az S 350 U)
is inverted, decoupled via an optocoupler and forwarded to the STEU board of
the Az S (M) 350 Version B/M via an IMA module.
The digital axle signal (TTL level) coming from the VESTI board
(Az S (M) 350 Version B/M) is inverted, decoupled via an optocoupler and
forwarded to the STEU board of the Az S 350 U.

The SVK2150 board converts the interlocking voltage into controlled voltages of
5 V DC for the computer, 12 V DC (not in use) and 70 V DC for WDE supply. All
voltages are monitored by voltage controllers. Input and output voltages are
electrically isolated.
The SVK2150 board is ready for operation when voltage is applied to the
switching input. This is indicated by the yellow LED "V
in
". When the switch on the
front panel is set to "I", the yellow LEDs "5 V" and "70 V" ("12 V" is not used)
indicate the presence of the voltages.
In case of undervoltage, the output voltage is switched off. When the output
voltage is missing, the control-circuit fuse (fuse 0.1 A; fast) on the front panel
blows. The unit cannot go back into operation until this fuse has been replaced.
If there is no voltage at all, the input fuse on the printed circuit board (fuse 8 A;
slow-acting) has to be checked.

The SVK2150 power supply board supplies voltage for up to five counting heads
connected. Terminal strips connected to the SVK2150 ensure electrical isolation
between indoor and outdoor equipment. Counting heads 4 and 5 may also be

On the wiring backplane, terminal strips are available for connecting counting
heads 4 and 5, the corresponding connections being established via jumper
wires.

4 Diagnostics
4.1 Fault Indication
Track sections whose track vacancy detection equipment is faulty are indicated
as being occupied in the control room. After detecting the fault or failure, the
signaller (or authorised person) informs the maintenance staff.
4.2 Troubleshooting (Indoor Equipment)
Troubleshooting should start in the indoor equipment (evaluation computer).
Record and evaluate the current operating state displays.
If the fault could not be eliminated by means of an axle count reset operation
by the signaller (or authorised person), press the AzGrH button on one
channel in order to activate the statistics functions and record and evaluate
the statistical data. For further details, see Section 4.3 "Statistics
Functions/Diagnostics", page 33.
To pinpoint the causes of counting errors, remeasure the signal frequencies f
1

of 3.60 kHz (tolerance range from 3.55 kHz to 3.65 kHz) and f
2
of 6.52 kHz
(tolerance range from 6.42 kHz to 6.62 kHz) at the measuring sockets "f
1
" for
3.60 kHz and "f
2
" for 6.52 kHz. In addition, remeasure the output voltages V
1

(3.0 V DC) and V
2
(3.0 V DC) at the measuring sockets "U" of the VESBA
board. The values must lie within the admissible tolerance range (2.90 V to
3.10 V).
If the signal frequencies f
1
, f
2
and the voltages V
1
, V
2
are within the admissible
tolerance range, the cause of fault is most probably to be found in the evaluation
computer.
If the voltages are outside the admissible tolerance range, check the counting
head. If the counting head proves fault-free, check the transmission path (cable).
If the signal frequencies f
1
and/or f
2
are outside the admissible tolerance range,
check the counting head.
Before checking the outdoor equipment, check whether the fuse on the VESBA
board (0.2 A) in the evaluation computer is fault-free and if there is WDE supply
voltage present in the indoor equipment. The tests are carried out with the
FTGS/GLS/AZS test unit (PEGA 1211), the test adapter board for ZP 43 E/V in
conjunction with a multimeter or the WDE diagnostic unit (no longer available)
and by comparison with the values given in the table of measured values. Faulty
boards must be replaced.

Single-channel operation of the auxiliary axle count reset button (AzGrH)
connected with the BLEA12 board switches the STEU boards from normal to
statistics display. The LEDs on STEU 2 to the right (slot 57) show the selectable
options. The object selection menu consists of two groups of five LEDs each. The
upper LED group (LED 1 to LED 5) displays the type of object selected, the lower
group (LED 7 to LED 11) displays the statistics function selected. The result of
the selection is displayed (directly or in binary code) on the STEU 1 board to the
left (slot 27, LEDs 0 to 11).

4.4 Evaluation Computer Fault Types
There are two types of fault occurring in the Az S 350 U:
EC
fault

Failure of a board
Emergency shutdown
(dual-channel shutdown)
Computer
operation continued
CAUTION
Track vacancy detection
of a controlled area faulty
Computer
fault

Figure 16 Fault types
If the computer is in the state of emergency shutdown (LED 0 continuously
flashing), the cause of fault can be determined from the LED displays of the
STEU board (see Section 4.4.2 "Emergency Shutdown", page 52).
Please note down the cause of fault in the fault record before you start corrective
maintenance (see Section 5.6 "Noting Down Fault Indications", page 78).
4.4.1 Failure of an Evaluation Computer Board
A board of the evaluation computer has failed. The cause of the fault may be the
failure of a peripheral board, e.g. a BLEA12 board.
" If this indication occurs without an emergency shutdown, carry out
corrective maintenance as described in Section 5.5.2 "Repairing an
Evaluation Computer after Failure of a Board" on page 76. Replace the
faulty board of the channel in question with a spare board.
A board failure can also result in an emergency shutdown.
" If, in addition to the indication, an emergency shutdown occurs, carry out
corrective maintenance as described in Section 5.5.3 "Repairing an
Evaluation Computer after Emergency Shutdown" on page 77.

4.4.2 Emergency Shutdown
S

SAFETY REQUIREMENT
The following times must be observed after an emergency shutdown:
After an emergency shutdown corrective maintenance (evaluation computer
disconnected) must be carried out within 8 days!
If the evaluation computer is disconnected after an emergency shutdown for a
longer time, the permissible out-of-service period is 5.5 months (only if
supply voltage is switched off immediately after channel failure).
If these times are exceeded, special safety measures must be performed. The
evaluation computer may only be put into operation again by Siemens specialist
staff.

4.4.3 Technical Requirements for Successful AzGrT or vAzGrT Operation
A successful reset of a track vacancy detection section (TVDS) requires that no
reset restriction (RR) is effective.

DANGER
If a TVDS is occupied by a vehicle, the signaller (or authorised person) is not
permitted to press the axle count reset button AzGrT or vAzGrT.
Depending on the configuration, the reset restriction is set according to different
parameters. There might be a reset restriction, if one of the following is true:
Pulse detection by a counting head belonging to the TVDS:
There is an axle on or oscillating over the double wheel detector.
The power supply of the counting heads is faulty.
The double wheel detector or double wheel detector cable connections are
faulty.
Counting heads of the track vacancy detection section have been traversed
within the last six seconds.
The last test of switching capability (internal software test SOPP) of the data
channels on the VAU board has not been successful.
The axle last recorded by the evaluation computer in a track vacancy
detection section is an axle counted in.

NOTE
The switching capability of the data channels for CH signals is checked every
216 hours (nine days). An unsuccessful switching capability test or
environmental phenomena (such as lightning) may result in an unintentional
occupied indication of the track vacancy detection section. Once the signaller (or
authorised person) has made sure that the track vacancy detection section in
question is clear, he may carry out an axle count reset via AzGrT or vAzGrT (in
compliance with railway operator regulations).

4.4.4 AzGrT Button Operation Error
If the reset buttons for a track vacancy detection section have not been operated
on two channels within the defined period of time (timeout), the operation will be
blocked. The blocking can only be cancelled by restarting the evaluation
computer.
Detection of AzGrT operation error
by means of a reset restriction (RR, i.e. axle count reset not possible) for the
track vacancy detection section (TVDS) affected.

A lit LED 4 or LED 10 of the STEU board indicates the RR for the TVDS affected.
" Restart the evaluation computer.
See Section 5.1.1"Switching On" on page 60.
4.4.5 Cancelling a Reset Restriction
If the last axle recorded by the evaluation computer is an axle counted in, the
track vacancy detection section cannot be reset. A reset restriction (RR) is
effective. The reset restriction can be cancelled by operating the auxiliary axle
count reset (AzGrH) button . There a two AzGrH buttons for each track vacancy
detection section, i.e. one per channel. By pressing the two AzGrH buttons (dual-
channel operation), by an authorised person, the reset restriction is cancelled for
the relevant track vacancy detection section.
Cancelling a reset restriction:
" Cancel the reset restriction of the track vacancy detection section affected
by pressing the AzGrH button on two channels.
LED 4 or LED 10 of the TVDS affected goes out.
Axle count reset is possible again for the affected track vacancy detection
section.

NOTE
After AzGrH operation, the signaller (or authorised person) can, after having
checked the operating department regulations (track clear proving), actuate the
AzGrT button for an axle count reset. We recommend not to carry out train
movements during this procedure.

5 Corrective Maintenance
S

SAFETY REQUIREMENT
The following times must be observed for corrective maintenance (evaluation
computer is disconnected for an extended period of time):
If the evaluation computer is disconnected after an emergency shutdown, the
permissible out-of-service period is 5.5 months (only if supply voltage is
switched off immediately after channel failure).
If an operational evaluation computer is disconnected, the permissible out-of-
service period is 9 years.
If these times are exceeded, special safety measures must be performed. The
evaluation computer may only be put into operation again by Siemens specialist
staff.

DANGER
During corrective maintenance work, the relevant railway operator regulations
must always be observed!

CAUTION
Please note the safety regulations on the handling of boards.
5.1 Switching the Evaluation Computer On and Off
5.1.1 Switching On
Restarting an evaluation computer means switching on all computer channels
either for the first or a repeated time (after a fault).
S

SAFETY REQUIREMENT
Implementation of AzGrT
Track clear proving after a restart/fault
After having performed the mandatory track clear proving, the signaller must
operate the AzGrT button, as this is the only way to obtain a track clear
indication due to the restart flag bit set.
In accordance with the applicable regulations of the relevant railway operator,
the AzGrT button must not be operated if the track clear proving was
unsuccessful.

S

SAFETY REQUIREMENT
Implementation of vAzGrT
Track clear proving after a restart/fault
The track vacancy detection sections must be completely passed and thus
checked by a proceed-on-order run.
If there are vehicles in the track vacancy detection sections, they must clear the
sections in order for the sections to be able to be fully checked. The clear
proving can be performed by several individual runs.
If a section is not to be cleared after it has been determined by a proceed-on-
order run that it is occupied by vehicles, the discovering train may only leave the
section if the leaving axle count differs, e.g. by taking along a coach, or if the
signaller after the entry of the train has reset to zero the axle count of the track
vacancy detection section affected by operating the vAzGrT button.

" Set the switches of the power supply boards to "I".
" Simultaneously press the red buttons (system reset) on both VAU boards of
both computer channels for approx. 1 s (switch of power supply board must
be set to "I").
After pressing the red buttons (system reset), the LED "ANL" must light up on
both VAU boards for approx. 3 s.
After the LED "ANL" on the VAU boards has gone off, the LED "VGL" will light up.
During computer start-up, all LEDs 0 to 11 on the STEU boards light up for max.
10 s. As soon as the LEDs change to normal display (see Section 3.3.1 "Normal
Display"), the evaluation computer is operable (LED 0 shows steady light).

NOTE
When an evaluation computer is restarted, it is guaranteed that all track vacancy
detection sections are first indicated as being "occupied" and displayed
accordingly. In accordance with the configured reset type (AzGrT or vAzGrT)
and the regulations of the railway operator, the signaller (or authorised person)
must then perform the axle count reset. We recommend not to carry out train
movements during this procedure.

5.1.2 Switching Off

DANGER
The evaluation computer may only be switched off in consultation with the
signaller (or authorised person).
Switching off a computer for corrective maintenance or long-term shutdown
purposes:
" Set the switch of the power supply board to "0".

S

SAFETY REQUIREMENT
In case of long-term computer shutdown, the supply voltage must be switched
off. Do not exceed the admissible out-of-service period. See also the safety
requirement at the beginning of Section 5 "Corrective Maintenance".

5.2 Troubleshooting (Indoor Equipment)
Troubleshooting should start in the indoor equipment (evaluation computer).
Record and evaluate the current operating mode displays.
If the fault could not be eliminated by means of an axle count reset operation
by the signaller (or authorised person), press the AzGrH button on one
channel in order to activate the statistics functions and record and evaluate
the statistical data. For further details, see Section 4.3 "Statistics
Functions/Diagnostics", page 33.
To pinpoint the causes of counting errors, remeasure the signal frequencies f
1

(3.60 kHz) and f
2
(6.52 kHz) at the measuring sockets "f
1
" for 3.60 kHz and "f
2
"
for 6.52 kHz. In addition, remeasure the output voltages V
1
(3.0 V DC) and V
2

(3.0 V DC) at the measuring sockets "U" of the VESBA board. The values
must lie within the admissible tolerance range (2.90 V to 3.10 V).
If the signal frequencies f
1
, f
2
and the voltages V
1
, V
2
lie within the admissible
tolerance ranges, the cause of the fault is most probably to be found in the
evaluation computer.
If the voltages are outside the admissible tolerance range, check the counting
head. If the counting head proves to be fault-free, check the transmission path
(cable).

Copyright Siemens AG 2001 All Rights Reserved
If the signal frequencies f
1
and/or f
2
are outside the tolerance range, check the
counting head.
Before checking the outdoor equipment, check whether the fuse of the VESBA
board (0.2 A) in the evaluation computer is fault-free and if there is WDE supply
voltage present in the indoor equipment.
The tests are carried out with the test adapter board for ZP 43 E/V in conjunction
with a multimeter, the FTGS/GLS/AZS test unit or the WDE diagnostic unit and
by comparison with the values given in the table of measured values. Faulty
boards must be replaced.
5.3 Replacing Boards

5.3.1.3 Marking Boards
In order to identify faulty boards, original boards installed in the computer frame
are replaced with spare boards. To make identification easier, boards used
during corrective maintenance are to be marked as follows:
Mark all original boards removed during corrective maintenance. After
completion of corrective maintenance, unmark all boards reinserted in the
mounting frame. Original boards which were not reinserted remain marked
and are considered to be faulty.
Mark spare boards inserted in order to distinguish them from the non-marked
original boards in the frame until corrective maintenance is finished. After
completion of corrective maintenance, unmark all spare boards inserted, thus
turning them into original boards.
If the computer does not function correctly after inserting the spare boards,
they will have to be removed again. These spare boards remain marked and
are considered to be faulty.
Faulty boards must be sent to the following address for repair:

5.5 Repairing an Evaluation Computer

NOTE
Only the boards of a failed computer channel may be replaced with spare
boards. It is not allowed to insert boards of intact computer channels into a faulty
computer channel.

5.5.1 Repairing an Evaluation Computer after Failure of a Power Supply Board
Proceed as follows:
" Set the switch of the failed power supply board to "0".

NOTE
The fuse on the front panel (0.1 A) or on the printed circuit board (8 AT) of the
SVK2150 power supply board may be faulty.

CAUTION
In case of a complete replacement, the power supply board may only be
replaced with a board of the same type.

" Replace the fuse(s) if faulty, or replace the failed power supply board with a
spare board.


DANGER
When an evaluation computer is restarted, the memory of the VAU boards is
reset; axle counting data produced at the same time due to a train movement will
get lost.

If LED "5 V" is not on:
" Set the switch of the power supply board to "0" and check the fuse(s) of the
power supply board. If one of them or both are faulty, it is likely that one of
the boards is also faulty. Identify the faulty board by removing the boards.
Replace the power supply fuse(s).
" Set the switch of the power supply board to "I" and check LEDs "5 V" and
"70 V" again. If the LEDs are still not on, also replace the remaining boards
of the channel with spare boards. If this is not successful, please notify
Siemens Transportation Systems!
If LED "70 V" is not on:
" Check the WDE cable (for short circuits).
" Check the WDE connection (wrong polarity).


NOTE
A faulty power supply board may cause the destruction of computer boards.
" If power supply was faulty, continue maintenance work as described in
Section 5.5.4 "Restarting an Evaluation Computer", page 77.

5.5.3 Repairing an Evaluation Computer after Emergency Shutdown
After an emergency shutdown of the evaluation computer, please follow the
instructions given in Section 5.5.4 "Restarting an Evaluation Computer", page 77.

NOTE
When an evaluation computer is restarted, it is guaranteed that all track vacancy
detection sections are first indicated as being "occupied" and displayed
accordingly. In accordance with the configured reset type (AzGrT or vAzGrT)
and the regulations of the railway operator, the signaller (or authorised person)
must then perform the axle count reset. We recommend not to carry out train
movements during this procedure.

5.5.4 Restarting an Evaluation Computer
Proceed as follows:
" First check all LEDs of the computer channels.
" All LEDs of the evaluation computer are off. Has the power supply been
switched off, is the power supply cable to the evaluation computer faulty,
or are the fuses of the power supply faulty?
Observe the safety requirement in Section 5 "Corrective Maintenance",
page 59.
" The LED "PAB" on the VAU board is on.
The LED "0" is flashing (emergency shutdown).
" Note down the LED display (fault record) and interpret it for diagnostics. For
how to note down the fault indications, see Section 5.6 "Noting Down Fault
Indications", page 78.
" If you identify the failure of a board, continue maintenance as described in
Section 5.5.2 "Repairing an Evaluation Computer after Failure of a Board",
page 76.
" Set the switches of all power supply boards to "0" (wait until all LEDs are
off).

6 Inspection
The basis for inspection of the Az S 350 U are the adjustments to the counting
heads carried out during installation:
Operating and Service Manual for ZP 43 E
(A25063-B217-H21-*-76N9)
Operating and Service Manual for ZP 43 E for Use at DB AG
(A25063-B218-H21-*-N9, available in German only)
Operating and Service Manual for ZP 43 V
(A25063-B216-H21-*-76N9)
The values required for the VESBA boards must also be taken into account.
Inspection must be carried out at the following intervals:
Fault-free operation: annually
Faults in axle counting: immediately

NOTE
Do not change settings as long as the value is within the admissible tolerance
range.

NOTE
Every counting head must be traversed at least once within 30 days. If this
minimum cycle cannot be ensured by the railway operator, the hazard rate
increases! The railway operator or approval authority may accept this, thus
allowing a longer cycle.

NOTE
We recommend that the system is checked every 24 months for earthing by a
visual inspection in order to achieve the specified reliability values (which
indirectly also affect safety), if protection by cables with a reduction factor as per
DIN VDE 0228 and DB-Ril 819.08XX and regular checking of earthing is not
required anyway.

6.1 Checking the Adjusting Values for Frequencies f
1
, f
2
and
Voltages V
1
, V
2

For inspection purposes, after replacing boards at the counting head and after
making changes to the cabling, the adjusting values for the frequencies f
1
(3.60
kHz) and f
2
(6.52 kHz) as well as for the voltages V
1
, V
2
(3.0 V DC 0.10 V) must
be checked and corrected, if necessary. This is done on the VESBA board. We
recommend to first reduce the voltages V
1
, V
2
to < 1.3 V DC by turning the
potentiometer to the left and then adjust them to the adjusting value by turning it
to the right.
Measuring and setting the input amplifier voltage for double wheel detector
system 1:
Connect red measuring lead to associated voltage measuring socket (V
1
).
Connect blue measuring lead to measuring socket "0 V".
Adjust voltage to 3.0 V DC 0.10 V using the potentiometer.
(This adjustment must be carried out for each counting head for adaptation to
different line lengths.)
Check the signal frequency f
1
of the double wheel detector on the VESBA
board (see Section 3.6 "VESBA Board", page 27). The signal frequency must
be adjusted at the counting head and can only be checked on the VESBA
board.
Connect red measuring lead to measuring socket "f
1
".
Connect blue measuring lead to measuring socket 0 V.

Measuring and setting the input amplifier voltage for double wheel detector
system 2:
Connect red measuring lead to associated voltage measuring socket (V
2
).
Connect blue measuring lead to measuring socket "0 V".
Adjust voltage to 3.0 V DC 0.10 V using the potentiometer.
(This adjustment must be carried out for each counting head for adaptation to
different line lengths.)
Check the signal frequency f
2
of the double wheel detector on the VESBA
board (see Section 3.6 "VESBA Board", page 27). The signal frequency must
be adjusted at the counting head and can only be checked on the VESBA
board.

Connect blue measuring lead to measuring socket 0 V.


NOTE
When setting the voltages V
1
and V
2
, be careful not to exceed the value in the
tolerance range of 2.20 V to 3.10 V DC.

6.2 Checking the VESBA Board
If the VESBA board is faulty, the causes can be as follows:
" First please check the following:
Is the double wheel detector faulty?
Is the associated ZP 43 E/V counting head faulty?
" Then check if one of the following is true:
One or both channels are faulty.
There is a fault in the cable connection between the ZP 43 E/V counting head
and the VESBA board.
The fuse (Si 1 on front panel) for the corresponding ZP 43 E/V counting head
is faulty.
The VESBA board is faulty.

NOTE
If a VESBA board is faulty or missing, the track sections are indicated as being
occupied.
The causes of counting errors are pinpointed by remeasuring the signal
frequencies f
1
and f
2
with the test adapter board with multimeter (measuring
leads), the FTGS/GLS/AZS test unit or the WDE diagnostic unit. For this purpose,
the measuring sockets of the VESBA board are used.
The signal frequencies must be within the tolerances:
If the signal frequencies (f
1
= 3.0 kHz and f
2
= 6.52 kHz) and the voltages (V
1
=
3.0 V DC or V
2
= 3.0 V DC) are within the admissible tolerance ranges and the

Copyright Siemens AG 2001 All Rights Reserved
signal level is still high, the cause of the fault is most probably to be found in
the evaluation computer.
If the signal level has dropped below the original level, the ZP 43 E/V counting
head must be checked. If the ZP 43 E/V counting head is fault-free, the cable
is defective.
If the signal frequencies f
1
and/or f
2
are outside the tolerance range, the
ZP 43 E/V counting head must be checked.

6.3 Checking the BLEA12 Board
If the BLEA12 board is faulty, the causes might be as follows:
" Check the following:
Do the DIP switch positions correspond to the configuration settings?
Are the jumpers correctly inserted?

If the evaluation computer has failed completely:
" Determine the fault code according to Section 4.4.2 "Emergency
Shutdown", page 52.
