Uniform Railway Standard with the EULYNX Adapter

DCS Uniform Railway Standard with EULYNX Adapter from PILZ 1 400x275

September 6, 2022


PILZ’s intention with the EULYNX adapter is to advance the digitalisation of the rail industry. They are driving this development in conjunction with ProRail, the largest railway infrastructure operator in the Netherlands. The EULYNX adapter is an important milestone for an open railway market based on digital train control systems.

The safe automation system PSS 4000 from Pilz is the hardware basis for the EULYNX adapter. With its special railway modules, the automation system PSS 4000 is already used for control and monitoring functions in a wide range of railway applications. It can be used to convert incoming signals, to or from interlockings for example, into control commands, based on the communication protocol RaSTA. These can then be interpreted by the end device – in this case the points.

13 of the largest European operators, including Deutsche Bahn, ProRail Niederlande and SBB Schweiz, have joined forces within the European project EULYNX. The goal is to develop and provide uniform standards for a modular interlocking technology. Operators, universities and other research partners are jointly taking part in this research project.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
