Signal and power transmission Increased complexity in train systems has increased car body wiring. This in turn impacts on the space required for extra wiring and increases weight, which has an adverse affect on performance and cost of ownership. This means that wiring the individual components is becoming increasingly challenging. Under these conditions, the use of thinwall and lightweight cables is essential to meet the technical challenges of the market while simultaneously reducing the amount of combustible material and thus potential fire hazard.

Gigabit data transmission on rolling stock A modern train requires a high-performance communication infrastructure that provides a broadband connection to the outside world and a backbone network throughout the entire train. In the long term, this enables multiple new applications to be implemented to the existing network and offers increased flexibility to add or exchange active components later on. Three factors are crucial for successful Gigabit data transmission on board rolling stock. HUBER+SUHNER offers the appropriate connectivity solutions with its range of products.
