Data cables for railway applications

The M12x1 X-coded connection cords meet the requirements of the most important standards in the rail industry and have undergone demanding stress tests. Telegärtner offer a number of other options to provide safe infrastructural cabling in trains. And the number of applications keeps climbing.

LR Series Rugged AC DC converters

Relec Electronics in association with leading global manufacturer of power conversion devices, Bel Power, announces the introduction of the new LR series 300 Watt AC DC power supplies.

Intelligent Railway Travel with AAEON Boxer PCs from RDS

The AEV-6356/6357VS Boxer PCs are primarily chosen for their media playing, monitoring, communication and video surveillance capabilities. These EN50155T compliant products help train crews to monitor different operating parameters of the train such as cabin temperature, door statuses and surveillance, as well communicate with external networks.

DIN-rail mounted circuit breakers

Charcroft has added a DIN-rail mounted version to its industrial series of Airpax hydraulic magnetic circuit breakers. Designed for mounting on standard 35mm DIN rails, the ICLR circuit breakers combine space savings with fast and easy mounting and the rugged reliability of hydraulic magnetic technology.

EN 50 155-certified, encapsulated DC-DC converter to IP65

With patented thermoselective vacuum encapsulation and IP65 sealing, MTM Power’s PCMDS150WK-IP65 DC-DC converter from Charcroft provides rugged reliability in rail applications. Wide input voltage ranges, covering rail inputs from 24 to 110VDC, and a galvanically isolated 24V output are combined with a power rating of 150W and high efficiency. Customisation of the standard converter can include adaptations to meet specific mechanical, electrical or environmental parameters for individual rail projects.

EN50155 Compliant Train-borne DC DC Converters

The on-board environment for rail passengers is improving rapidly with existing rolling stock upgrades and new build. A major factor in these improvements is the provision of modern LED lighting, Wi-Fi and USB to the seat, to do this safely and reliably from the on-board supply requires high quality railway compliant dc dc converters.

The Infineon AURIX™ Microcontroller family keeping safety critical applications on track.

With more and more microcontroller-based systems being used in ever-increasing numbers and safety also becoming increasingly important, the task of developing to meet the standards required for this should not be under-estimated. With the roots of safety-critical development firmly embedded in automotive, the cross-over into other safety-critical areas such as railway electronics is a natural step. This article will look at how the AURIX™ microcontrollers will deliver a safe and reliable platform for your development teams to get on board with.

SIL4 Certified COTS Rail Safety Platform

Artesyn has announced Safety Integrity Level 4 (SIL4) certification for its ControlSafe™ Platform, one of the first embedded computing systems to use commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components to create a fail-safe and fault-tolerant computing platform for a wide range of train control and rail signaling applications.

The perfect pairing for Ethernet networks in railway technology.

Today, passenger information systems that transmit audio and video signals represent standard equipment on most trains and increasing numbers of travellers are expecting to find high-end infotainment systems with internet access. All of this presents rail operators with the need to increase transmission capacity and adapt existing rolling stock to the changes in user requirements.
