Surge arrester solution opens valuable train rooftop space

Surge arrester solution opens valuable train rooftop space
TE Connectivity (TE) is introducing a new surge arrester for the railway sector that can be mounted directly on the transformer, thus taking away a product from the train’s rooftop. The surge arrester is fully tested against shock and vibration, and meets the fire and smoke norms of EN45545-2.

Rail-to-rail low-offset-voltage amplifier

Rail-to-rail low-offset-voltage amplifier
The OPAx990 family (OPA990, OPA2990, and OPA4990) from Texas Instruments is a family of high voltage (40V) general purpose operational amplifiers. These devices offer excellent DC precision and AC performance, including rail-to-rail input/output, low offset (±300µV, typ), and low offset drift (±0.6 µV/°C, typ).

Gotthard railway tunnel relies on fire-resistant junction boxes

Gotthard railway tunnel relies on fire-resistant junction boxes
It would be no exaggeration to call the Gotthard Railway Tunnel an engineering marvel. Stretching 57km in length, at up to 2,450m1 deep through the Swiss Alps - it’s both the longest and deepest tunnel in the world. This application environment presents a substantial challenge to those trying to ensure fire safety, especially when it comes to protecting vital electricals in the event of an emergency. That’s why the junction boxes trusted to provide this protection are WKE fire-resistant enclosures from Spelsberg.
