Equipment on demand

The undercarriage of the locomotive comprises two double-axle bogies with individual drive of all wheelsets. The traction motors are nose-suspended on the axles using roller bearings. The drive unit is located in the engine room and comprises the Caterpillar diesel engine and the Siemens traction alternator. In the engine room there are also auxiliary drives, a diesel engine cooling block, a pneumatic block and a switchboard with an electrodynamic brake block. The power regulation and control of the whole locomotive is ensured by the control system made by MSV elektronika with automatic speed control (ASC) function and remote diagnostics by means of GSM and GPS technologies. The locomotive is equipped with a DAKO air brake and a parking (stored-energy) brake.
