Railway DC/DC converters feature ultra wide input range

Railway DC/DC converters feature ultra wide input range
When planning a universally applicable railway device typically at least three versions of the same design are necessary to cover all standard supply voltages in railway vehicles ranging from a nominal 24-110VDC. This causes additional complications, which can be avoided by using RECOM’s newly developed DC/DC railway converters with ultra-wide input voltage, which allow for all-in-one solutions.

Rail power supply slim design receives maritime approval

Rail power supply slim design receives maritime approval
Delta Electronics has added a new 24V/40A output to the CliQ M series of DIN rail power supply. The CliQ M series has the highest power density among the CliQ family and is also the first series in the CliQ family to feature Advanced Power Boost (APB). APB works to protect the system by ensuring continuous operation when a large inrush current is detected due to faulty load on a multiple load connection.

Rail workers experience 'close calls' on hand-held devices

Rail workers experience 'close calls' on hand-held devices
No matter what the hour and conditions rail workers are trackside. Whilst performing their work they can use hand-held devices to send on-the-spot reports when they encounter anything untoward that raises safety concerns. The result is a huge, expanding and potentially very valuable database of these ‘close calls’ and it could make a big contribution to improvements in railway safety.

Years of innovation provided in high-speed rail bearings

Years of innovation provided in high-speed rail bearings
An unwavering goal to maximise safety in high-speed rail travel has led NSK to provide more than half of century of innovations that date back to the very first generation of Shinkansen bullet trains in Japan. Indeed, advanced development programmes have continued apace to the present day. This is because the latest-generation trains are getting even faster, which places yet higher demands on bearing technologies.
