Type CKD8C Narrow Gauge Diesel Electric Locomotive

     Type CKD8C narrow gauge main-line diesel electric locomotive is designed for Southeast Asia and Africa railways. Type Cummins QSK60-L or CAT3516BHD is installed in the locomotive. The gauge is 1065, 1067 or 1000mm. The axle arrangement is Co-Co and the axle load is less than 16.5 tons. The maximum speed is 120km/h.
Three-phase AC-DC transmission is used on the locomotive. Three-phase AC current generated by a main alternator, which is driven by diesel engine, is rectified and then supplied to the six parallel-connection traction motors which drive the wheels running via driving gears.
There are two type of this kind of locomotive. One is inner walking way locomotive with double drives cabs at both ends, one is outside walking way locomotive with one drives cab.
The locomotive is characterized by good traction and braking characteristics, high reliability and transmission efficiency and lower operation and maintenance cost.
