This instrument is designed for measuring the temperature of the locomotive radiator water with high accuracy.It has been designed in two models, the Digital and the Analogue.  Following the temperature measurement, in the digital set  the instrument by electronic pulls and in the Analogue set by the current of 4-20 MA send the water temperature information  to the central processor. If the temperature is higher than the permitted value, the cooler fans are activated to lower the temperature of the water. The digital set  has been installed on the MP (Micro Processor) locomotives and the MPA Company is their sole designer.

The dead-man system is designed to caution and alert the locomotive drivers. It is equipped with a foot pedal and push button on the locomotive console.   This system has two timers which operate at 74-volt locomotive voltages. When the locomotive moves, the driver must push the pedal repetitively in one minute intervals to inform the system that he is not incapacitated and it is safe to proceed. Otherwise an alarm sounds and after passing 5 seconds the train stops.   In the new models, the event recorder has been assimilated with the dead-man system, and the extractable information is saved in memory. It has several inputs and outputs that communicate with various parts of the locomotive, such as the dynamic lever and regulators. According to this information, signals are sent to other parts such as automatic train stop, alarms, etc.

This class of distance recorder is designed to record the distance traveled by individual wagons in the train set.    The  number  of  wheel  revolutions  is  recorded  using  sensors  mounted on the wheel axel and the information is transferred to the distance recorder. The distance traveled is recorded individually  for  each train set wagon and independently of the sensors located on the main locomotive.

*   Input of train set and train set wagons labels and numbering.
*   Recording of total usage time.
*   Adjustment of the date and the timet.
*   Adjustment of the wheel diameter parameter.
*   Conformity with speedometers that have any numbers of output pulses.
*   Password enabled.
*   Information saves in the event of main power supply failure.
*   Small dimensions and LCD with 2 × 20 characters.
*   Distance recording of up to 1,000,000,000 kilometres with 100 meter accuracy in 1000 km.
*   Ability to connect to a Reader for data logging and transfer to computer.
*   Indication of Power On / Power Off times of the train set with accuracy of one second.
*   Switching Power Supply with ability of accepting input voltage from 12 to 36 volts.
*   Current consumption of 100 ma.
