Railway Signal Technology: Digital Engineering Provides Greater Efficiency in Signal Cable Distributor Construction
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.
The trend towards digitization can be clearly seen in the area of rail infrastructure too: Customers are demanding shorter and shorter development and delivery cycles, personalized solutions and digital data (CAE/CAD) for every component, from housings to terminal blocks. Both international and industry-specific standards need to be taken into consideration, as well as further special requirements of the specific rail network operators, which need a certificate for every component used.
