Electric locomotives and motorcoach trains require a reliable supply and distribution of power.
Once the power is transferred from the overhead wire – usually on an AC voltage level of 15 or 25 kV – through the pantograph into the vehicle, distributed to the train sections or supplied to a 6 kV transformer.
In order to minimise the danger when dealing with these high voltages, high-quality materials are essential at every step of the way. Not only that, but special safety requirements must be taken into account as early as the design and planning stage for a high-voltage system. As well as the functional requirements, the necessary air insulation clearances, possible vibrations and deviations, installation options and many more things have to be considered.
The Nexans Rolling Stock division supports its customers in this with tried-and-tested, preassembled cable loop. We supply connectors with inner and outer cone suitable for a wide range of device connecting elements in line with EN 50180, EN 50181 and NFF 16101 flexible or self-supporting terminations, additional currency transformers or jumper solutions. An almost innumerable array of locomotives, electric motor-coach trains are already rolling with our solutions.
