Multifunctional Controller «Granch Adaptive Linker» is developed to collect information from electrical devices of various mobile objects, transmit these data and data necessary to determine their location.
If there is no communication with the server located on the surface, the controller stores the telemetry data in the built-in "black box". In addition to the adaptive transmission of streaming telemetry data from the diesel-hydraulic locomotive (DHL), GAL can be used to connect to extra equipment, for example, a video camera, various sensors, a DHL operator's console or a mechanic console servicing the DHL.
GAL was tested for DHL of several leading manufacturers, showed its applicability for solving tasks of control of production processes associated with the transportation of goods and the performance of work using DHL. Remote monitoring of parameters of intraservice transport, allows to analyze the operation of the mechanisms and plan ahead for repair or replacement of ntraservice transport in advance, as well as to exclude idle times of ntraservice transport .
