WAGO in railway systems
SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR TASKS
Whether railway vehicles, signalling technology or railway stations - WAGO products can be used almost anywhere where electricity flows, signals are transmitted and converted in the railway sector. It is not without reason that operators, manufacturers and suppliers of railway and signalling technology rely on WAGO. We have been doing pioneering work in electrical connection technology since 1977: away from the screw and towards spring connection technology - setting standards in railway technology.
From a simple trip to an evocatively moving moment: there are many stories about train travel – some are entertaining, others irksome, but they seldom revolve around style and comfort. This is not the case for the cutting edge Luxon panorama rail car – and the luxury is more than skin deep. The operators accepted no compromises when selecting the technical equipment, and decided to use WAGO rail-mount terminal blocks, pluggable connectors, and interface electronics.
Making the development of signal cable distributors more efficient – that’s the goal of cable and telecommunications specialist Comtec. In WAGO’s Smart Designer, this international company has found a digital engineering platform that provides reliable, sustainable support for this endeavor – for example, for the rail industry, which is very standards-oriented.
“Condition-based monitoring” promises to make maintenance of railway vehicles more efficient, in terms of both time and costs. Westfälische Lokomotiv-Fabrik Reuschling GmbH & Co. KG shows how railway operators can implement condition monitoring for their rolling stock.
Every vehicle delivered by ZWEIWEG International GmbH & Co. KG is ready for a busy life in two spheres: on the road and on the rails. Bringing this safely to fruition requires German engineering technology, a large portion of solution-oriented thought, an eye for detail, and last but not least, connection technology that functions reliably 100% of the time.
