DC/DC converters with 14W designed for railway applications

DC/DC converters with 14W designed for railway applications
The DC/DC converters of the series PMGS/PCMGS14 from MTM Power have been designed for transport and railway applications where low-ranged power is needed. The devices operate at a nominal input voltage of 72VDC or 110VDC and supply an output voltage of 24VDC (12VDC and 48VDC on request) with a high efficiency of more than 90%.

Rail power supply features conformal coating to protect against dust

Rail power supply features conformal coating to protect against dust
Delta Electronics has launched a 24V 120W CliQ III Series of DIN rail power supply. The new high power density product has a wide operating temperature range of -25°C to +70°C, providing full power up to +60°C. It can successfully start up at extremely low temperature of -40°C. Like the rest of the CliQ family of DIN Rail products, conformal coating is applied on the PCBAs to protect against common dust and chemical pollutants found in industrial applications.

Lightweight carbon fibre used on a rail bogie frame

Lightweight carbon fibre used on a rail bogie frame
Made from recycled carbon fibre, this new type of rail vehicle bogies could lead to major savings for operators, with a 50% reduction in weight meaning a huge reduction in track wear and energy and maintenance costs. A research team at the University of Huddersfield plan to now carry out exhaustive tests to ensure that the concept can fulfil its potential.

British steel wins major German rail contract

British steel wins major German rail contract
A major rail contract has been secured by British Steel after it enhanced its manufacturing capabilities with a seven-figure investment. The deal will see the company deliver around 20,000 tonnes of 120m rail a year to Deutsche Bahn, Europe´s largest purchaser of rail. It comes after the company spent £1m enhancing its Scunthorpe Rail and Section Mill so it could manufacture this longer-length rail.

Minimising maintenance for London’s new Elizabeth line

Minimising maintenance for London’s new Elizabeth line
As London’s new £14.8bn Elizabeth line becomes operational in December 2018, it will carry an estimated 200 million passengers a year. Research at the University of Huddersfield has helped ensure that trains will run reliably and safely on one of the world’s busiest lines. At the University’s Institute of Railway Research (IRR), Assistant Director Dr Paul Allen has been working on the project – previously known widely as Crossrail – since planning and design stages in 2008.
