Precision transducers for high voltages in rail applications

Precision transducers for high voltages in rail applications
Due to the liberalisation of the rolling stock market, more and more companies use the existing rail infrastructure. Trains are therefore equipped with energy measurement systems to track the power consumption of different operators and enable transparent billing. However, without reliable, highly accurate transducers, energy consumption data can only be of limited use.
