ECOBox-R, R+ and RSIL

General Characteristics:

The ECOBox-R, R+ and RSIL are mounted devices interfaced to the ECOMeter that collect in real time the catenary voltage and current and provide an interface to different vehicle functional systems.

They are high level customizable devices, they can be configured according to the specific Customer requirement and provide several different interfaces.

They provide signals for the traction control module, the energy measurement function according to the standard EN50463, the vehicle communication system and any vehicle function that uses the information coming from the catenary.

The compact design allows an easy and simply integration in the vehicle.


Advanced functionalities like harmonics calculation and over voltage or overcurrent can be implemented by an additional SW application The SW can be uploaded or updated just connecting the unit to a PC or from remote if it is available the communication unit ECOCom.

The ECOBox-RSIL is a certified device which provides SIL2 outputs for the following functions catenary detection, harmonic detection, overcurrent detection and ripple detection on the analog outputs.

Environmental performances:

They are suitable for railway rolling stock application, designed to be installed inside the cabin.

They are compliant with all regulations of the rail market . All the components are homologated for the industrial temperature range (from -40°C to +85°C -Class OT4 -EN50125-1) and ensure proper function in the worst environmental conditions.

Electrical performances:

The main feature of them is the high accuracy of its 4 current analogue outputs and 1 voltage output channels galvanically insulated to each other. They are characterized by very low energy consumption and the auxiliary power supply nominal range is 24÷110 Vdc.

Their analog current outputs accuracy is 0,5R for both current and voltage measurement according to the standard EN50463
