There is hardly any other industrial sector that puts such high demands on components and solutions as modern rail vehicle construction. The highest quality, maximum service life and compliance with the strictest safety criteria are absolute requirements.
More than 75,000 products, many years of industry know-how and a high degree of development competence make HellermannTyton one of the leading companies for sophisticated solutions in bundling, fastening, identifying, protecting and processing cables and wires in rail vehicle construction.
The classification system defined in EN 45545-2 specifies requirements for the fire behaviour of materials and products used in rolling stock.
The thresholds for oxygen index, smoke density and toxicity are outlined in the requirement sets R22, R23 and R24.
HL3 – the most stringent of three Hazard Levels – indicates where material behaviour gives rail passengers the greatest chance of orientating themselves and not suffocating from toxic fumes in the event of fire.
To meet HL3, the oxygen index of a tested material must be above 32 percent, smoke density 300DS or lower and toxicity index of smoke below 0.75 CIT NLP.
HellermannTyton has launched a range of cable markers that can be installed during and after assembly, without the need for any cable ties.
The EVO KR tool makes it quicker and easier to process KR-Series cable ties with the bonus of fully adjustable tension.
Cable management specialist, HellermannTyton, has added the EC6-8, the largest EdgeClip, to its portfolio of fixing ties.
HellermannTyton's new cutting tool provides a safe way of removing plastic cable ties applied to wiring harnesses and cable assemblies.
