Global climate change is elevating the importance of public transportation, increasing the demand for railway transport solutions.
With a growing number of passengers on trains, the need for compact, robust and reliable components that can meet the challenges of the railway industry is more crucial than ever. In this article, we introduce the innovative plug-in systems by Stäubli Electrical Connectors designed for railway power supply.
As rail passenger numbers continue to rise, there’s less room available for components to accommodate travellers comfortably. Nevertheless, these components must remain compact and robust to meet stringent requirements. Stäubli has developed the EvoTrak family, which offers space-saving components tailored for the railway industry. These components are highly suitable for the railway sector due to their utilisation of plugin connections instead of screw connections. These plug-in connections provide both security and time savings, ultimately reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO). In addition to the EvoTrak product line, Stäubli also offers fork plugs that enable insertion technology. The use of this insertion technology is highly space efficient, particularly because there’s limited room available for large and thick cables within subsystems. Thanks to insertion technology, secure and reliable connections can be established even in hard to-reach areas.
Stäubli’s connection solutions are distinguished by their high reliability and robustness. The tried and tested MULTILAM contact technology is the cornerstone of all Stäubli connectors. The MULTILAM technology ensures a durable connection between surfaces, maintaining a consistent contact resistance for enhanced reliability and safety under extreme conditions such as electrical stress, thermal fluctuations, mechanical robustness, temperature variations, vibrations and shocks.
