Features & Benefits

Reduced life cycle costs

26L equipment typically requires eight overhauls in its service life whereas CCB 26's minimum five-year COT&S cycle significantly reduces locomotive downtime and maintenance costs. Its higher reliability reduces repair costs by 75 percent, road failures by 75 percent, and cuts life cycle costs overall by at least 38 persent.

Simpler installation

The electronic brake valve (EBV, drivers brake valve) is the "man / machine" interface to the CCB 26 brake system. The EBV is designed for installation in the same mounting envelope as the 26C brake valve located in the engineers stand, and is used by the engineer to control the independent brake, automatic brake, and bail-off. The EBV includes the lead / trail switch and the ER setpoint (feed valve) switches required for setting the brake system operating mode and equalizing reservoir setpoint.

Faults are presented to the operator via an LCD screen mounted on the drivers brake valve, EBV. This screen is also used for routing advisory instructions such as penalty reset and emergency reset.
