Next Generation Railway Signal and Data ProtectionFor many years railroads have relied on nVent ERICO Rail Transient Barrier (RTB) products for protection against damaging voltage surges and transient events. With a maximum surge rating of 40kA 8/20 (nominal surge rating is 20kA), RTBN (Rail Transient Barrier Next Generation) continues to provide industry-leading performance with added features that modern railways have come to expect.

Next Generation Railway Signal and Data ProtectionRTBN’s DIN rail grounding connection eliminates the need for additional ground bar or grounding wires. Its new design is compact, with a latching surge module that minimizes issues caused by vibration and human error. Other added features include a thermal disconnect for safe end of life, visual status indicators, and remote monitoring, all of which are now common maintenance functionalities.

nVent ERICO has extensive internal product testing capabilities, and has subjected RTBN to surge current testing and overload current testing to ensure reliable protection during transient events, as well as shock and vibration testing to ensure that RTBN will withstand and perform in demanding rail settings.

Next Generation Railway Signal and Data Protection

RTBN complies with AREMA® C&S Manual Parts 11.5.1 & 14.1.2, and is designed to meetANSI®/IEEE® C62.41-2002 Cat A, Cat B, Cat C.

Connection and Protection for Critical Railway Infrastructure and Systems

nVent provides solutions that connect and protect critical railway infrastructure and systems, improving safety and reliability throughout the network. We offer innovative, high-quality products for critical electrical and electronic systems throughout the railway network. Through our powerful portfolio of brands that include nVent ERICO, ERIFLEX, HOFFMAN, RAYCHEM and SCHROFF, we provide electrical connection solutions for trackside and on-board applications, surge and lightning protection, trackside heating solutions, and enclosures for trackside signalling and on-board systems. Our portfolio of industry-leading products is designed to meet international railway standards. With a manufacturing and sales presence in every key rail market, we serve a global base of customers that includes railways, system integrators, rolling stock manufacturers and major rail equipment OEMs.

Electrical Connection Solutions

nVent ERICO is the global leader in cable-to-rail connections for track signal, power and grounding applications. We have been serving railways with niche electrical connection solutions for over one hundred years, and are responsible for many industry-standard products including Cadweld, which has been the primary method for making exothermic cable/rail welds since its introduction in 1938. Through our nVent ERIFLEX product line, we provide critical solutions for low-voltage power distribution, power conduction, and grounding required in trackside and on-board electrical panels. This innovative product line includes flexible busbars, distribution and power blocks, metallic braids, and cabling sleeves characterised by proprietary material composition that contribute to a safer, more reliable on-board and trackside electrical systems. In addition, nVent ERIFLEX products meet key rail industry standards, such as EN 45545-2, the European standard fire-performance requirement for materials and products used on-board railway vehicles.

Railway Surge & Lightning Protection

Damage as a result of surge and lightning events can cause major disruptions to railway signalling and power systems, which is why networks throughout the world turn to nVent ERICO to protect critical systems and equipment. We offer a full line of wayside surge protection devices that protect railway signalling, data, and power equipment against surges and voltage transients. nVent ERICO is also a global leader in direct-strike lightning protection, with solutions like System 3000, a custom combination of air terminal conductors, down-conductors, and grounding system used to protect rail yards and other large open spaces in the network.

Trackside Heating Systems

Snow and ice build-up on tracks and overhead wires poses a major safety risk and can cause serious disruptions to service. nVent helps railways operate in harsh winter conditions with our full line of trackside heating solutions, which includes heating systems for switches, contact rail (third rail), and overhead contact wire in catenary systems. With advanced heating cable technology from nVent RAYCHEM, along with high-quality system components and the general rail infrastructure expertise of nVent ERICO, we provide service-proven heating solutions. These are: Switch heating: systems that keep turnouts and crossings properly functioning in harsh winter conditions, with a full line of service-proven solutions that feature self-regulating heating cables, and flat MI (mineral insulated) heater element technology. Contact rail (third rail) heating: innovative heating systems that eliminate ice and snow accumulation on the contact rails (third rail), a critical part of passenger transit infrastructure. Catenary heating: an advanced heat trace cable system that melts snow and ice on overhead contact wires, a trusted solution used by networks that operate in cold weather climates as well as more moderate climates where freezing overhead lines can still be an issue.

Signalling Enclosures

nVent is a major supplier of railway signalling enclosures with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for trackside electrical equipment, as well as critical electronic systems contained on board rail vehicles and at remote dispatch canters. With our trusted brands nVent HOFFMAN and nVent SCHROFF, we serve railways and signalling system integrators throughout the world, with manufacturing facilities in every key railway market, including China. Our industry-leading experience, and extensive design, testing and production capabilities allow nVent to produce high-quality enclosure products that provide robust mechanical stability, EMC shielding and protection against shock and vibration and other environmental challenges that are part of demanding railway operations. These high-quality enclosure products also meet international railway standards, which is why nVent HOFFMAN and nVent SCHROFF products play an integral role in safe, reliable railway networks. Our full line of signalling enclosures, which includes many rail-specific designs, is based on modular platforms that can easily be modified to meet unique applications.
