Vecom Vehicle identification and priority system

  1. 1. VECOM®- CompactVehicle identification and priority
  2. 2. VECOM® Automatic point changingSmooth traffic flow for trams and buses is an essential A pre-configurable priority request is sent to a trafficrequirement for everyone. For passengers, who prefer control device using vehicle identification. This ensuresminimal waiting times and other delays. For transport that the switch points are set to the required positioncompanies looking to offer optimal service and automatically and well in advance, allowing for the vehicleefficient operations. VECOM® technology can be a key tool in to continue without any delays.achieving this. Vehicle registrationVECOM® is an inductive communication system at the basis The roadside equipment can register the identificationof many vehicle stop and central unit functions. VECOM® is details of passing vehicles and the time of passing. Thisan abbreviation of ‘Vehicle Communications’, referring to function is a highly effective tool for analysing andtransparent information exchange between mobile vehicle improving service levels. Furthermore, this function isequipment and stationary equipment along the route. essential to running travel information systems effectively,VECOM® is used to exchange data between vehicle including Compact Bus and roadside equipment. Vehicle identification Versionsis used for priority requests at intersections, automatic ormanual points changing, reporting in and out at stops and The VECOM® Compact systems are available in VECOM®-C orvehicle localisation and registration. VECOM®-CT versions and have 2, 4 or 8 loop capability.Priority request VECOM®-C System with full VECOM® functionality and suitable for theBased on vehicle identification, a pre-configurable loop buffer. The loop cable with the 25-pole sub-D plug ofpriority request is submitted to a traffic control the predecessor can be connected directly to the VECOM®-Cinstallation. With VECOM®, it is possible to add the unit. Parts of the existing BWS systems are used for thisvehicle status in comparison to the timetable to this request. configuration, i.e.:This enables using conditional priority, meaning that thevehicle is given priority only if that is necessary. Loop cable; Loop Distribution Panel / Wide Style (LDP/WS); Loop buffer MK2.
  3. 3. VECOM®-CT The option to combine two loops offers the followingIn the VECOM® Compact Transceiver version of VECOM®-C, benefits:the full new functionality of the new VECOM® as described The driving direction can be detected with thewill be available. Currently, the existing parts as described combined loops;under VECOM®-C are obsolete and the following extra parts The two overlapping 8-shaped loops canare required: prevent double detections. The entire VECOM® function, including the type VECOM®-C Loop cable; radio link modulation, is configurable. This gives VECOM®-C LDP (Loop Distribution Panel); greater flexibility and enables completely adjusting VECOM®-C Transceiver. the function without any changes to the hardware;VECOM®-C Features All software, including modulation and filtering algorithms, can be downloaded via the serial port.VECOM®-Compact is the latest generation of VECOM® roadsidesystems with the following properties: Further benefits in combination with the “Loop Transceiver” (VECOM®-CT) are: Limited footprint thanks to 3 compact 3 HE modules; An RS485 serial channel for connecting to an Improved diagnostics (including detection of a dead intelligent roadside system or to a central system via the loop); CVU protocol or via the VETAG serial protocol; Improved insensitivity to EM noise, which allows the An extra RS485 serial channel for controlling the digital unit to better handle environments with a high level entrances and exits or an extra connection to a central of EM noise (including Light Rail); system; Longer “feeder” cables possible (up to 800 m An RS232 serial channel for diagnostics, configuration between the loop and VECOM®-CT unit). and downloading software; Extensive parallel input and output possibilities; From and to passing vehicles; From and to linked central systems; Extensive, configurable 19 bit VETAG code conversion. Benefits VECOM®-C offers a number of specific benefits, making VECOM®-C an ideal and cost-effective choice: Highly reliable data communication; Simple system with many extension options without capital destruction; Easy to install communication loops (without regulation); State-of-the art technology; Improved diagnostics and less sensitivity to noise; Larger distance between loop and VECOM®-C unit possible;
  4. 4. Specifications Software functions Software functions approx. 200 different vehicle codes can be decoded. Serial channels when detecting a vehicle, an exit and/or vehicle alert is reported. Power supply AC 176 VAC < U < 253 VAC / 50Hz / 1A. DC 22,8 VDC < U < 25,2 VDC / 1,3A (For integration into other equipment, the VECOM®-C system can also be connected to an external 24 VDC inlet). Interfaces 3 Communication RS232 (service channel) and 2 x RS485 compatible. 1200, 9600 or 19200 bps half channel duplex, VCU protocol (in accordance with ISO1745) or VETAG serial output. The second RS485 channel can be used for controlling parallel inputs and outputs or to connect an additional central system. Please note: A distance up to 1 km is possible by adding a SERIO module. Synchronisation Via the synchronisation interface, the VECOM®-C can be synchronised with the interface of other VECOM® systems. Parallel inputs and A maximum of 4 x I/O 1609 modules can be connected on the VECOM®-C units. This outputs allows for making a large number of inputs and outputs available. The Relais contacts are at 1 kVDC isolation voltage. Contact current 0.5 mA < I < 100 mA, Contact tension 3.0 V < U < 50 V. Diagnostics By means of LED’s and via the service channel (RS232).
