Connectors for communications between rail locomotives and vehicles

Connectors for communications between rail locomotives and vehicles
TE Connectivity has introduced MU27P connectors to ensure control and communication connections between railway locomotives and vehicles. The 27-point plugs and receptacles (including dummy receptacles) allow a single point in the train to issue up to 27 commands to all or some of the vehicles simultaneously. These connectors convey signals such as door controls and indications, public address, brake applied/released indications, as well as audio and other passenger rail functions.

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.
