Rail operators are aware that expectations of service availability are high. There is no tolerance for accepting disruptions. Providing a comfortable and reliable transport service is key to attracting passengers. This includes electrical connectors that are space-saving and lightweight in design without sacrificing performance. Instead of using multiple single-pole connectors, operators benefit more from using multi-pole connectors.
Rail companies and passengers expect smooth operations on the railways. Trains should run day and night and on schedule. They are subject to extreme weather conditions and the highest mechanical stresses. Reliable, lightweight and easy-to-use Stäubli connectors help minimise vehicle downtime and equipment maintenance needs. As an industry partner and key supplier in the international railway sector for more than 30 years, Stäubli Electrical Connectors has a comprehensive insight into the challenges of the market.
Essential electrical connections in trains are applications along the entire traction chain, such as motor connections between cars, converters and all subsystems. The universal, compact and modular Stäubli Modular Power Connector (MPC) is a product solution that increases process efficiency throughout the entire life-cycle of the train from installation to maintenance work. When replacing engines and motors, the quick section separation makes the train ready for use again more quickly. Regarding the planning and wiring of the traction chain, there are good reasons to use modular multi-pole connectors instead of several single-pole connectors or junction boxes.
