FBC Mascinen is fitted.

The mounting of the camera and the current
pick up from the axles was made by the supplier for all the solders would be correct.
   
The camera coach will run in pair with another coach which also has current pick up on all axles.
In this way, the current pick up is distributed over a greater distance  and will reduce the risk of temporary power failure when passing 
switch yars or tracks with bad track position.

On the picture is also the receiver of the wireless signal.
