Transportation Infrastructure and Phoenix Contact

An 80 year partnership of cutting-edge solutions

Phoenix Contact has been supplying reliable components to the transportation market since 1929 when we invented rugged, modular terminal blocks for use in the railroad industry. Over the last eight decades, since the advent of our partnership with railroads, our product portfolio has evolved to meet the complexities of the ever-changing applications in the transportation infrastructure industry.

Phoenix Contact offers several products and solutions for the transportation and transit industries, including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) software, control hardware, networking products, switching devices, power supplies and surge protection. These are all used in applications that service the railroads, highways, bridges and tunnels.
