“WOW” Weidmüller shows how industrial connectivity solutions help increase railway revenues at Railtex

Railtex, 12th-14th May 2015, at NEC, Birmingham – Stand K80Wordpress-Train

Running a modern and high-performance transport system and maximising revenues is a great logistical challenge and demands a fast, flexible, efficient, reliable and safe railway service for your customers, and one which requires short periods of immobilisation and servicing.

Our staff will be on hand on stand K80 at Railtex 2015 to show and discuss solutions on offer for the electrical connection, transmission and conditioning of power, signals and data for rail infrastructure and trackside applications, signalling and rolling stock. Our terminals, enclosures, surge protection, relays, Industrial Ethernet, heavy duty connectors, PCB components and tools will all be on display including:

RockStar® HighPower Series

GR_HDC_HIgh_Power_Trains_1Our RockStar® HighPower connector series incorporates an innovative pluggable power product transmission solution which means installation is fast, efficient and virtually maintenance-free. Made of highly durable materials, the connectors are easy to handle and there is no need for special tools. The plug connector has a modular design which means that it can be used for a vast range of different solutions.

The housings have been designed for use in extreme environmental conditions.  Their features include IP68/69K protection degrees, high shock and vibration and water resistance, and coupled with our connectors, are the ideal choice for protecting sensitive interfaces against electromagnetic interference.
