SINGLE-HANDED TRACTION CONTROLLER

The single power-handle master controller of the Budd SPV-2000 rail diesel car combines in one compact device the functions of the brake valve, throttle, reverser, double-heading cock and MU pilot valve. The concept is based on the pneumatic system, including many standard components such as the 26-F control value, J-type relay valve and other standard car and locomotive components. The system is compatible with standard railroad braking arrangements. In addition to normal friction brakes, the SPV-2000 is equipped with two types of dynamic braking regulated also by the controller. An automatic spring-actuated parking brake is also part of the system.
