AGE DETERIORATION OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT ON RAILWAY ROLLING STOCK

Recently electronic apparatus involving transistors and integrated circuits has been used extensively on rolling stock. This trend is evident particularly on the Shinkansen where the automatic train control system and other controls using low-voltage electronic auxiliary systems are applied. In the course of reliability tests of these electronic components, it is important to know that their aging characteristics are not negligible and to understand if the results of these tests reflect these conditions. This article explains how one detects aging and takes it into account in the course of inspection of the Automatic Train Control equipment on Shinkansen cars.
