Bombardier train carriages

Challenge

Train manufacturer Bombardier had tried alternative test programmes, but approached MK Test looking for an efficient solution for testing active cabinets within its railway carriage production lines. Using the MK Test equipment, every part of the system can be used to make a measurement or stimulate components, saving time and shortening the process.

System Specification

Test system is a Distributed System.
2 & 4 Wire continuity resistance
500 – 2000 VDC Insulation/Dielectric Test
1500VAC Hi-Pot Test
Full Function Test (MULTIBUS). The system is able to distribute actuation signals to the active components in the carriage, replicating vehicle operating power supplies.
Automatic programme generation
