primion would like to draw attention to the fact that Oracle is making changes to the Java SE business model.

Oracle does not seem to provide any further updates for Java SE 8 and following versions for free. In the commercial environment, a subscription model with costs is to be introduced so that customers can continue to receive updates.

Company’s should check what this change means for them.

On-Board Networking Solution for Rail-Train, Metro and Tram

When train cars are switched, re-configure network settings is normally required. Thus, railway operators need to have enough knowledge of Ethernet. This not only increases the cost of labor but also result in additional time.

Making it flexible for easy maintenance is biggest challenge for on-board network solution.
In most of train application, many train cars will be shifted according to different destination, which often becomes a maintenance issue when any car changes. As the different car devices were set with different IP address that would need to migrate into the same IP without any manual setting to keep the original train network.

Lantech Train Discovery Protocol (LTDP)
With LTDP-aware DHCP server, Lantech EN50155 switches can discover the current IP addresses and enable the switch to exchange the IP address when any car is merged. LTDP can also react on the link failure or node failure to keep the original IP range and maintain the remaining network function until the replacement is in place. It can also keep the config file when switch is swapped.

The video below explains how LTDP works.

Innovative „Train Ring“ is the best rail train solution – Switch Cars, No Reconfiguration

Reduce Cost with High Customer Satisfaction

During current train operation, train cars might need to be separated and reoriented due to more flexible operating requirement. Take MRT for example, it needs more cars during peak hours while only few cars are needed during offpeak hours. A longdistance train route may separate into two shorter trains and heading to different destinations at a junction point. When a train system has higher flexibility, it can utilize the resource and reduces operational costs.

When train cars are switched, reconfigure network settings is normally required. Thus, railway operators need to have enough knowledge of Ethernet. This not only increases the cost of labor but also result in additional time. Also, train car switching will cause the interruption of networks, effecting passenger information system and intrain WiFi service.

Passenger’s tolerance toward network interruption is limited and this is one of the important factors of customer satisfaction.

Train Ring vs. Existing Solutions

Common Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Coupling Ring can be applied to rail train network for redundancy of multiple train cars. However, each solution has its own drawbacks such as longer recovery time or nonautomatic recovery. Lantech provides a new solution called "Train Ring", which can automatically recover the network within 50ms without reconfigure the settings!

Lantech Train Ring is evolved from traditional Coupling Ring. It eliminates the setting process, and will automatically identify the primary and backup path dynamically, without any configuration required.

Lantech Train Ring allows train operators to rapidly change composition of trains with high efficiency and flexibility. Since all settings are done automatically, configuration errors and cost can be minimized. The recovery time of Train Ring is less than 50ms, so passengers can hardly recognize the interruption caused by topology change.

New FKM material specifically to meet the demands of the oil and gas industry

With the newly developed FKM compound Vi 900, the seal manufacturer C. Otto Gehrckens presents a high-performance product innovation for use in the petrochemical industry. The material has proved its suitability as a dependable elastomer seal even under the most demanding conditions, complying with NORSOK test standard M-710 and also passing the hardness test with the best possible rating of 4x ‘0000’, without showing any damage whatsoever. Vi 900 is therefore ideally suited for use in production sectors which, as a result of the danger of explosive decompression, impose especially high demands on the seals used.

The special feature of this new product development is its outstanding stability under low temperatures. With a TR-10 value of -40°C, Vi 900 is suitable for the coldest applications, right down to -50°C and, as well as complying with the NORSOK standard, it therefore also complies with American standards API 6A and 6D for oil and gas installations. According to the manufacturer, combined with an extraordinarily good cold compression set this high-performance material sets new standards in relation to AED (anti-explosive decompression) and RGD (rapid gas decompression) seal materials.

A further plus point for this new FKM compound is its excellent resistance to a wide range of specific media and chemicals, from mineral oils to aliphatic, aromatic or even chlorinated hydrocarbons and also to acids in various concentrations and weak alkalis. And as the material is also characterized by very low gas permeability, a wide range of applications is possible. Vi 900 is used as a seal material in valves, ball cocks, pig traps or slider valves in production areas where the very highest levels of reliability and the best possible quality with respect to explosive decompression are required, above all in the petrochemical industry, in compressor construction and also in compressed air preparation. This new material is available with immediate effect.

New workflow efficiency in rail vehicle construction

At Innotrans 2018, the software developer Aucotec will be showing for the first time its mobility solution with a special variant for the development of vehicle electrical engineering and wiring of rail vehicles. The cooperative platform Engineering Base (EB) supports both standardized work as well as customized requirements. It allows entire functions to be reused, and it does not force processes into a rigid chronology as is customary.

Correctly combined

The call for standardized modules is becoming louder also in the railway sector. Such modules would assure faster vehicle development and smoother commissioning. However, a ready-made modular system, as in the automobile sector, would not work here because rail vehicles have to be adapted individually to different track requirements.

In EB, functions can be maintained as modules in a freely extensible basic modular system, for example, for lighting that consists of controls, indicators and luminaires. Options are stored as separate circuit components, which saves you from requiring the otherwise innumerable variants of sheets with all possible combinations of options. With EB, railway carriages are no longer designed individually for each train, but are configured from the quality-tested function modules. "This is how the platform combines individuality and standards into a significantly optimized workflow," said Georg Hiebl, Product Manager Mobility at Aucotec.

Flexibly adaptable

However, that was not enough for the software developers. A workflow is perfect only when the engineering system allows users freedom within the work process. "With the current cost pressure, it is important to adapt the design process to the internal specifications – not the other way round, as in having to subject the processes to the limiting capabilities of a system," said Hiebl. Furthermore, it should be possible to seamlessly integrate everything into the IT environment. For this purpose, EB is equipped with a multi-layer architecture that allows flexible adaptations to processes and seamless linking to other systems.

"Single source of truth" makes changes transparent

The system also permits an exceptionally transparent change process. The many changes in the rail vehicle development process are a major challenge when different disciplines are working together. In EB, all disciplines work in parallel, even simultaneously, on a central data model. This "single source of truth" automatically remains up-to-date and results in particularly continuous data consistency, not only for engineers, but also for the individually configurable production lists. It is always possible to see what has been changed by whom. EB’s data model ensures that corrections made once at one point in the documentation are immediately displayed in any further representation of the changed object.
