About the 6E1

class 6e1 rotating electric motor

The 6E1 locomotive class is equipped with four type AE1-283 traction motors which are axle hung on roller suspension bearing axle tubes. Traction motors Nos. 1 and 2 are in one bogie and 3 and 4 in the other.

The four motors can be connected either in series or in parallel by combinations or electro pneumatic contactors and drum switches. In the series combination, all four motors are connected in series and in the parallel combination are connected in two parallel circuits of two motors in series. The desired combination is selected by means of the reverse and combination key.

Initially, in either combination, heavy duty resistors are connected in circuit with the motors; these are progressively cut out by the contactors until the motors are connected direct to the line. In the series combination the resistors are cut-out in eighteen stages and in parallel are cut out in seventeen stages.

In addition, vernier notching can be selected, giving a further three resistance steps between all of the main resistance notches in both series and parallel.
