The train communication network (TCN) is a hierarchical combination of two fieldbus for data transmission within trains. It consists of the Multifunction Vehicle Bus (MVB) inside each vehicle and of the Wire Train Bus (WTB) to connect the different vehicles. The TCN components have been standardized in IEC IEC and UIC have now been issued as a set of international standards to overcome this situation: IEC , the Train Communication Network. STANDARD. IEC.

The connector between the vehicles is the pole UIC connector. Interfaces are listed by their speed in the roughly ascending order, so the interface at the end of each section should be the fastest. When total cost of ownership is considered, the cost of the hardware elements can 613375 be outweighed by additional engineering costs in the railways market with its small series.
This is not due to the communication technology: Up to 32 addresses can be dynamically allocated. Vehicles without WTB node “conduction vehicles” are not counted.
While the WorldFIP, CANopen, Lonworks 661375 Profinet are controlled by international manufacturer associations targeting a wide range of application, MVB was tailored to the rolling stock application, with the goal of plug-compatibility, and therefore allows no options.
There is no inauguration, the addresses are statically allocated. Views Read Edit View history. Archived from the original powerpoint on Since connectors are exposed and can oxidize, a current pulse is applied at connection kec to evaporate the oxide layer, called fritting. The plugs and sockets are the same as used by Profibus with two 9-pin Sub-D sockets per electrical device.

Retrieved from ” https: The train communication network TCN is a hierarchical combination of two fieldbus for data transmission within trains. The MVB standard was introduced to replace the multitude of field buses 61357 the train equipment. This was intentional as the fight between the field busses raged in the s and the decision of the IEC that any of the eight field busses was a standard did not help plug-compatibility.
Despite the similarities, no rail-manufacturer has considered FlexRay, since they valuated a common solution higher than a multitude of better busses. The multifunction vehicle bus connects individual nodes within a vehicle or in a closed train set. The wire train bus has been designed for international passenger trains with variable composition, consisting of up to 22 vehicles. But railways certification is costly and not always needed for uncritical applications such as comfort and passenger information.
Technical and de facto standards for wired computer buses. The physical level is using transmissions at a 1.
Still all the alternate vehicle buses are connected to the Wire Train Bus.
MVB for critical operation such as traction control and signalling in the driver’s cab, and LON for uncritical and slow data transfer, but low-cost connections such as passenger 6175 and diagnostics. This explains why MVB and FIP have similar operation cyclic and event-drivenonly the arbitration method in case of multiple access differs, as MVB used a binary bisection mode relying of collision detection while FIP piggy-backed a “look-at-me” bit over periodic data.
The frames have a maximum payload of bits. Additionally ieec and more components are added to rail vehicles that need far more bandwidth than any field bus can provide e.
The MVB frames are not compatible with IEC fieldbus frames as it omits most of the preamble synchronization which is not 6137 if zero-crossing detection is possible. When two train compositions join, the addresses are reallocated to form a new composition of vehicles with a sequential address.
MVB is similar to FlexRayboth have the “process data”, which is called “static segment” in FlexRayand “message data”, which is the “dynamic segment” and are driven by a ieec TDMA scheme. The medium consists of a duplicated shielded twisted pair cable, which runs in the UIC cables between the vehicles. This separation is not always observed.
