At 2014 InnoTrans, ITT will announce the completion of a connector upgrade project with DSB (Danish Railways). The ITT Veam and ITT Cannon blue-generation FRCIR series and CA Bayonet connectors were used to ensure the safety and reliability of DSB railcars.

Electrical connectors between each railcar are continuously exposed to harsh weather conditions, making them susceptible to corrosion. ITT’s Veam FRCIR series and ITT Cannon CA Bayonet connectors provide Danish Railway with a robust, reliable and cost-effective solution to minimise the risk of railcar damage and unplanned downtime due to corrosion.

ITT Veam and ITT Cannon blue-generation connectors seamlessly marry with existing technology on each railcar, eliminating upgrade barriers and avoiding unexpected costs. These connectors combine RoHS and REACH compliance and improved performance with a zinc nickel plating, offering heightened protection against the most severe environmental conditions including resistance to 500 hours of salt spray and withstanding temperatures from -55 to + 125°C.

“ITT Veam and ITT Cannon offered the DSB project team a customised solution addressing its specific rail application needs and parameters,” said Lorenzo Bonadeo, Senior Product Manager, Interconnect Solutions business, ITT. “ITT Veam FRCIR series and ITT Cannon CA Bayonet connectors are of the highest quality and reliability, and are designed to meet Europe’s most stringent compliance standards.”

The interconnects were developed and delivered on time and the project team completed the comprehensive connector upgrade across DSB’s fleet of railcars meeting stringent key performance measurements.
