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.

Solutions

Onboard Passenger and Freight Rolling Stock

Today’s trains are equipped with more and more technology. WAGO understands the need to conserve space, while ensuring reliable connections that are touch-safe and easy to install and test. By using our pluggable products and lever connections, Line-Replaceable Units (LRU’s) can be quickly removed and replaced, which keeps the trains moving.

Why Use WAGO?

  • XTR PLC & I/O meet all railway specifications and are equipped with M12 connectors.
  • With direct insertion, TOPJOBs products make terminating wires faster and easier.
  • The WAGO smartDESIGNER product configurator enables true 3D configuration/visualization while also providing error-checking and validation.

Railway Signal / Infrastructure Products and Applications

WAGO has developed unique software applications that utilize off-the-shelf (OTS) components. These applications provide railway customers with a customized Health Monitoring System that provides both fault information in real-time and extensive data logging capability. WAGO’s Train Presence Detection System (TPDS) also utilizes OTS to detect when a train is occupying a segment of track. This system is used to turn on/off power to wayside systems and can inhibit unsafe movement of switches.

Why Use WAGO?

  • XTR PLC & I/O meet all railway specifications and offers a modular design, which enables customers to specify and design exactly what they need. We now offer units equipped with M12 connectors.
  • With WAGO's e!COCKPIT software and available online or in-person training, customers can program and make software changes themselves saving time and money.
  • WAGO's Field Application Engineers are very knowledgeable about the products and software. This support is free of charge for our customers.
