Diagnostics Services Catalogue 13 Diagnostics Department The employees working in RFI Diagnostics Department make a great contribution to the monitoring and inspection of the Italian Rail Infrastructure. They regularly inspect 25,000 Kilometers of rail network performing, every day, accurate analyses of complex data. The inspection of railway lines is guaranteed using different vehicles which are part of a great fleet. According to the type of line and assets which have to be diagnosed it is possible to use the right vehicle and the right car, allowing to measure all the parameters provided by national and international standards. In the following pages it is possible to find a detail for each service included in the portfolio RFI is able to offer to other national and international railway infrastructure managers: Diagnostic Engineering Services Education and Training Services Diagnostic measurement activities related to Track, Electric Traction Systems, Signalling Systems and Telecommunication Systems.

Diagnostics Services Catalogue 16 Track Diagnostic Systems Safety plays a leading role in the railway sector. According to international regulation all possible actions must be taken to reduce risk and danger associated with anomalies in the track geometry. Since the track condition affects the vehicles running dynamics and the mutual interaction between the track and the rolling stock, the danger situations depend not only on the track, but also on the vehicle and their wear conditions. Consequently, the safety margins are reduced, especially in the presence of severe degradation of both the track and the vehicle.
Diagnostics Services Catalogue 17 Track geometry Thanks to track geometry measures, railway infrastructure managers identify defects and monitor track deterioration. These data allow them to estimate the rate of track deterioration and optimise track maintenance schedules. Track geometry parameters are fundamental because they affect primarily the train safety and secondarily the passenger comfort level. The measuring systems used by RFI are able to detect all the track geometrical parameters according to EN 13848 and TSI infrastructure standards: Track Gauge Twist Left and right longitudinal level D1, D2, D3 Left and right Alignment D1, D2, D3 Absolute track geometry The system monitors deviations (which have to be kept to a minimum) in track geometry from the target position. Since railways use absolute reference systems for track geometry, the system is able to check the displacements with respect to the project heights between two consecutive fixed points. Ride quality testing The system monitors and measures the parameters describing the dynamic behavior of the vehicle with respect to track stresses in order to provide useful information regarding the safety and quality conditions of the Running Dynamics. It is possible to detect the following parameters: Running dynamics: Vertical and transversal accelerations (on the axle box, on the vehicle body and on the bogie frame) according to EN 13848, EN 14363, UIC-518OR. Wheel/Rail interaction: wheel/rail force, Derailment Coefficient (Y/Q), Ripage Force (ΣY). Ride Comfort: Fatigue and Discomfort Indices (comfort decay level), in accordance with the requirements of UNI ENV 12299, EN 14363. The system is also able to detect the ride comfort with respect to onboard brightness, noise and temperature. The measuring sensors are installed within a dummy.
Diagnostics Services Catalogue 18 Rail Integrity Assessment The diagnostic technologies used (ultrasonic, liquid penetrant and video inspection) are able to monitor the quality of rails according to UIC 712 R (Rail Defects Catalog). The diagnostic activity is aimed at preventing the breaking phenomenon. It is possible to identify: Transverse and horizontal break Longitudinal vertical cracking Cracks from holes Head defects Etc… Rail Corrugation Measurement system evaluating corrugation over four critical wavelength bands. [10-30] mm [30 to 100] mm [100-300] mm [300-1000] mm The system complies with EN 13231. Rail Profile System evaluating the wear at rail top and sides through the following parameters: Horizontal wear Vertical wear 45 degrees wear Conicity Through track geometry, rail and wheel profile parameters elaboration, diagnostic systems are able to process the equivalent conicity in accordance with UIC 519, EN 15302, EN 14363.
Diagnostics Services Catalogue 19 Video inspection The video inspection system is able to acquire all the information useful to visually evaluate the infrastructure quality levels, through analog and digital rail infrastructure images. Railway Clearance Gauge Inspection System The system checks the presence of obstacles in clearance gauge thus monitoring the risk of impact for rolling stock. The detected gauge is compared with admitted profile and alarm reports are automatically generated. Railroad Switch Monitoring System The system monitors railroad switches health. It is able to measure: Switches parameters Wear levels

Diagnostics Services Catalogue 22 Telecommunication diagnostic systems The operation of the railway infrastructure requires an efficient telephone service. For this reason, RFI, through its diagnostic trains, regularly monitors GSM-R technology required for ERTMS/ETCS Level 2 and for communications between railwaymen. RFI also performs measurements related to public GSM (2G), UMTS (3G) and LTE (4G) operators, in terms of: RF Coverage Service Availability QoS voice and data Log analysis RFI is able to offer other national and international railway infrastructure managers various services as follows: Measurement campaigns and reports performed with diagnostic trains, to evaluate the ground infrastructure; Signals verification in confined spaces, such as railway vehicles interiors; Measurements with portable devices; Consulting for implementation or improvement of an autonomous diagnostic service; Training activities. The offer is constantly evolving and follows the telephone market and its rapid changes.
Diagnostics Services Catalogue 23 Telecommunication diagnostic systems Railway vehicles need to exchange data with the infrastructure on which they are circulating. In recent years this need has become stronger and stronger, due to the required performances and increasing number of on-board systems, which require more and more transmission capacity. To meet these needs, RFI has developed a broadband transmission system that allows its diagnostic trains, even those that run at 300 km/h, to communicate with company servers. The system guarantees integrity and confidentiality of data exchanged between on-board and on-ground servers, minimizing connection failures. Thanks to this experience RFI can offer customers, who need to maintain their railway vehicles "connected", consulting services in terms of needs assessment, systems design, installation and operation.

Diagnostics Services Catalogue 25 Rolling Stock Engineering Services The Diagnostics Department, through its Rolling Stock Engineering Department can provide services as follows: Consulting services for revamping and transformation of rail vehicles, helping customers to define the requirements and to comply with current regulation in order to obtain the authorization to circulate by the competent Railway National Safety Authority. Vehicles performance monitoring using dedicated software and reporting systems (RAMS, LCC, FMECA, FTA analyses). Vehicle maintenance activities, technical specifications and maintenance plans definition. Reverse engineering to adapt existing vehicles to suit new business goals or regulation. Technical specifications, terms of contract, evaluation framework editing. Design compliance check activity Cost benefit evaluation, to be applied when purchasing new rail vehicles or revamping existing vehicles Risk evaluation and risk management Support companies, that need to obtain a certification as Entity in charge of maintenance (ECM) according to Regulation EU/445/2011, to design, implement and manage a Maintenance Management System.
Diagnostics Services Catalogue 26 Unmanned Diagnostics Services RFI has requested and obtained by the Italian Railway National Safety Authority the homologation of the unmanned diagnostic system. This system, installed on commercial trains, evaluates the track geometry quality monitoring various parameters automatically and remotely, without maintenance staff. Thanks to this, it is possible to migrate from a diagnostic process with specialized staff, to a new one where staff presence is not required. The use of commercial trains, to diagnose the railway infrastructure in place of dedicated trains, and the automated monitoring increase the lines availability as well the detection frequency. This increases frequency of acquired measurements and reduces maintenance and staff costs. In addition, RFI is automating on-board systems installed on diagnostic trains. This approach has the advantage of requesting a reduced number of required on-board crew (only train driver is needed). This generates obvious savings. RFI is therefore able to offer a consulting service aimed at the implementation, commissioning and organization of an unmanned diagnostic system.
Diagnostics Services Catalogue 27 Diagnostic Trains Fleet RFI constantly upgrades its diagnostic trains by revamping existing rolling stock and equipping new trains with newly-designed diagnostic systems. Continuous investments over the years have guaranteed state of the art technology. Today this allows RFI to monitor railway infrastructure at 360 km/h.
