The Model 2600-020 AEI Reader is a dual microprocessor system specially designed for the demanding environment of the rail industry. The 2600-020 is the future of AEI integration and was developed to interface with the latest Transcore Multiprotocol Rail Reader (MPRR).
The 2600-020 system is housed in a rugged and compact stainless steel cabinet with simple to understand system status indicators and the processor reset switches on the sealed front panel. The Main Terminal block on the bottom of the enclosure provides terminals for the 2600-170 MRDI – Multiplexed Route Direction Indicator that tracks car movements beyond switches in a yard environment.
Power and function control switches are arrayed on the upper left and right sides of the enclosure along with a high decibel Sonalert, two USB ports and a connector for the 2600-180 Wireless Transducer Calibration System.
The system is designed for ease of setup and maintenance. All connections to the system are made with plug connections. All system configuration data can be readily moved to a replacement unit simply by moving the micro- drive plugged into the USB port.
The Model 2600-020 AEI Reader is the next generation in the reliable Model 2600 family that has been in production for over five years, with over 300 systems in Class 1 service worldwide. Future ready MPRR integration, within the proven dual microprocessor architecture system, positions the Model 2600-020 as a natural choice for AEI solutions.
The Model 2600-020 is configured to easily integrate with the latest Transcore Multiprotocol Rail Reader (MPRR). A connector array along the bottom of the cabinet provides all external connectivity for the MPRR, serial device connections, IP modems, LAN and WAN networking, and peripheral device inputs.
The Model 2600-020 System has the proven dual microprocessor architecture of the original Model 2600 AEI Controller Module.
Front End Processor (FEP)
Provides for all required real-time data collection and hardware interface to peripheral devices like wheel detectors, presence detectors, switch position monitors, AC power monitor, and the Transcore MPRR. The FEP is designed to operate over a temperature range of -40°C to +70°C.
Industrial PC (IPC)
A ruggedized single board PC built to industrial environment specifications by VersaLogic. The IPC processes raw real-time data collected by the FEP. The Linux operating system provides advanced processing capabilities such as:
