Schaltbau Solves Customer Problems by Designing and Making Accessories

Schaltbau is a supplier of contactors, switches, connectors and train controls for OEMs, system suppliers and operators in the UK and globally. The company also solves customer problems by designing and making accessories. For example, we produced this portable 96V DC train battery booster pack for a UK rail operator.

96V DC Train Battery Booster Pack

Housed in a tough aluminium case with a high-visibility yellow powder-coat finish, the booster pack has eight sealed, maintenance-free lead-acid batteries. A single isolator switch controls the power to the 96V polarised heavy-duty socket, which is located on the front panel.

The booster pack has a single 96V DC output. The internal components are protected against accidental short-circuit thanks to a 125A fuse. It is mounted internally on the 96V positive (+) output.

The internal cells are recharged from a pair of single-phase internal 48V 5A chargers that connect to the electrical supply by a C19 16A IEC mains lead.

Users appreciate its robust design, simple operation and features, such as lifting handles, which make it easy to lift across rails in a depot, for example.
