20572: What do the settings "profile is only applicable to vehicles that meet the condition(s)" and "profile is mandatory for vehicles that meet at least one condition" on the register side function do?

This setting is necessary if one or more specific vehicle conditions are set for a speed profile. In such cases, there are two possible interpretations of the vehicle conditions.

The setting "Profile is only applicable for vehicles that meet the condition(s)" is typical for increasing additional profiles, e.g. increasing speeds due to tilt. Such profiles must not be used by vehicles which do not meet the conditions (e.g. tilt technology). Of the vehicles which fulfil the conditions, they can be used, but do not need to (a tilt vehicle can also be used conventionally).

The setting "Profile is mandatory for vehicles which meet at least one condition" is provided for reducing additional profiles. Here, the profile must be applied as soon as at least one condition applies. A profile with speed restriction for heavy vehicles (e.g. axle load >20 t, meter load >6 t/m) must be applied if the vehicle exceeds either the axle load or the meter load.

However, such profiles may also be used by trains to which the vehicle conditions do not apply. One can, as it were, voluntarily submit to the reductions. An example: A reducing additional profile applies to vehicles with a pantograph (reason: single-drive line). However, it is also possible without problem to submit to this profile with a diesel locomotive, for example, when diesel and electric traction cars are to be exchanged as precisely as possible in the cycle.

It is therefore important that speed profiles of the first category are valid exclusively, that means that one should read the inscription of the vehicle conditions in such cases as "applies only to ...". For additional profiles that have the property Increasing / Decreasing, you can always set Increasing = Exclusive, Decreasing = Mandatory.
