Telegaertner Data Cables for Railway Applications

The M12x1 X-coded connection cords meet the requirements of the most important standards in the rail industry and have undergone demanding stress tests. Telegärtner offers a number of other options to provide safe infrastructural cabling in trains. And the number of applications keeps climbing.

The M12x1 X-coded connecting cables of Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH are suitable for networking passenger information systems (PIS) in the rail cars. This includes, for example, WLAN access points and cameras as well as other applications for data exchange. Modern information technology continues to provide new applications every day.
