DOS AND DONTS


Never select both Controller Lead/Trail Switches to HLPR at any point or Keep One in LEAD & the Other in HLPR/TEST. Lead/Trail switch on Brake Controller is with PUSH & ROTATE mechanism and always follow this practice to rotate switch keeping the knob pressed. Do not Change Lead/Trail switch on running Locomotive. Do not Re-cycle CCB Circuit Breaker on a running locomotive. Give some time during two self test (at least 4-5 minutes). Ensure Loco is isolated before performing Air Brake self test. Ensure availability of sufficient MR pressure (always more than 7 Kg/cm2) before starting self test. Do Not hold bail off switch for long time. If Auto Brake are applied and if you are moving Direct Brake Handle to REL position, please be careful to not to lift bail ring other-wise it will result into release of Auto Brakes on Locomotive & Locomotive may roll. Before attaching locomotive to formation, please blow the air thru hoses (by charging BP) and also please clean End connection of formation wagon/coaches. At times it is found that small stone or plastic pieces flow back to Emergency Vent Valve Clear fault codes of Controller Failure i.e, 40, 41 & 42 etc before HLPR operation.
