Mounts on the wagon. The trainline provides the CCID power and brake commands. The CCID in turn provides power to the ECP manifold and smart devices like empty load or handbrake. The CCID intercepts and acknowledges the trainline messages and sends brake commands the ECP manifold. The CCID has a battery backup for situations where ECP power is off; ECP can continue normal operations for up to 4 hours.

Wabtec Freight Car Products ECP Hand Brake

ECP Hand Brake

  • 9300-ECP, 9300-3ECP, 4493-ECP, 4493-3ECP
  • AAR Group N and O
  • Allows locomotive ECP logic to query for set brakes at any time
  • Works in ‘ECP Run’ or ‘ECP Switch” modes with no operational impact on communication bus loading
  • Car ECP logic instantaneously sends warnings to the locomotive ECP display when the handbrake is applied and the Train Brake
  • Command transitions to 0%
  • Integrates to Wabtec’s “CarNet” onboard ECP Wagon Communication system
  • Provides a path for ECP controlled parking brakes

Wabtec Westinghouse Railway Electronics ECP Inter-Car Cable

ECP Inter-Car Cable

The ECP Inter-Car Cable and Lanyard is used to connect the 230VDC Trainline between ECP wagons and locomotives. The cable meets or exceeds the environmental specifications defined in AAR S-4210. In addition to S-4210, the connector design has improved sealing of the trainline electrical connections. This connector performs electrically to depths of 0.7 m of water submersion. This inter-car cable uses a twist action to mate and unmate the trainline connection between wagons. This is more ergonomic and a safer connecting method. When in operation, the cable and lanyard lengths are specified to pull apart prior to the brake pipe separating to initiate an ECP Emergency.

Wabtec Locomotive Products ECP Interface Unit

ECP Interface Unit

The EIU directly interfaces with the ECP 230 VDC Trainline power supply. The EIU is directly connected to the NIU-II and also acts as a gateway between the NIU-II and Trainline Network to allow HEU/LCM messages to be passed between the Trainline network devices and the NIU-II.
NOTE: The previous Locomotive ID (LID) functionality is now integrated into the cable between the EIU and NIU-II. This cable has an integrated static memory for maintaining the Locomotive Static parameters specific to each customer application.

  • Interfaces directly to the Trainline Power Supply and NIU-II
  • Discrete 74 VDC I/O
  • PCS Relay (NO & NC operation)
  • Power Supply Controller Logic
  • ECP Trainline Interface for NIU-II

Wabtec locomotive products Junction Box

ECP Junction Box

The junction boxes are installed on the front and back of each ECP locomotive. The J-Box allows the locomotive to be connected to an adjacent locomotive or car/wagon. The junction box also provides a HeadEnd Termination (HET) Plug to terminate the Trainline.

  • Located at end of locomotive
  • BIW end sill connectors protect car/locomotive permanent wiring
