Solving the task of increasing transport volumes at suburbian railway lines and their quality in conditions of transportation safety provision with simultaneous reduction of operational costs requires automatic systems for rolling stock diagnostics in depot.
The technology of electric train condition assessment by means of the COMPACS®-EXPRESS-TR3 system described in the paper, which does not cancel the order existing in the Russian Railways regulating the PPM and repair process, allows significantely speed-up and simplify train maintnance in depot in case when large amounts of machines require maintnance. It is possible by the timely accurate and high-quality codition monitoring of the main sub-systems of electric trains in depot.
Such decision also alows to reduce non-productive downtime of train units waiting for train to be assembled, adjusted and run-in; obtain almost full elimination of defects and operational failures due to maintnance staff‘s incompetence, i.e. reduce equipment‘s damagebility by at least 50-60%, providing high level of safety and uninterrupted operation of suburbian railway lines.
