Product solutions

The highest level of quality and reliability, plus zero maintenance: these are three essential requirements that must be met by products installed in rail vehicles. Components used in rail vehicles must be resistant to shock and vibration. Furthermore, how the material behaves in fire is particularly important.

It is a given that our rail-specific products meet rail standards EN 50155, EN 50121-3, EN 50121-4, and EN 45545-2. Furthermore, Phoenix Contact is IRIS certified.

Our products are developed particularly for the requirements of the railway industry:

  • An important aspect in the selection of the plastics used in the railway industry is their non-flammability.
  • The components being used have to be resistant to the strong vibrations that occur during rail transport.
  • Particularly high or low temperatures and temperature shocks also must not affect the electrical function of the components being used.

Relays

Relays

Special relay modules from Phoenix Contact are used to control auxiliary braking systems. In order to activate the auxiliary brake, for example a magnet rail brake, several requirements must be met first: rotary transducers on the carriage axle continuously detect the travel speed and evaluate this.
