REGULATEURS EUROPA is successfully replacing mechanical-hydraulic governors of any manufacture with digital Viking Governing Systems. Mechanical-hydraulic governors by their nature suffer from heating effects and internal wear.
The reduction in maintenance has been proven to finance the procurement of the new equipment. The electronic controls have also meant that speed and load control settings have proven to be more repeatable than its mechanical-hydraulic predecessors. Viking Traction governors can be tailored to interface with any locomotive speed setting and load control arrangement.
