TE Connectivity will lead the way in rail power and data transmission at InnoTrans

TE Connectivity will showcase its unified connectivity and sensor solutions addressing the growing demands of smart trains and connected railways at InnoTrans in Berlin, September 18-21.

Visitors to TE’s Booth 201 in Hall 6.2- will see a variety of connectivity and sensor solutions that optimize rail systems for greater reliability and increased safety. TE solutions help improve the passenger experience with high-performance, high-demand power supplies, sensors, and connectivity components for durable, always-on, and failure-free applications in increasingly connected trains.

A highlight of the TE booth is the demonstration of TE’s next-generation roofline systems for all operating environments, combining reliable operation with a low profile and lightweight design. Other topics include:

  • Revolutionize transportation

In its quest to design a new mode of transportation, TE is a partner of rLoop, providing the team with engineering expertise, sensors and connectivity solutions to power the technology, and a home in Silicon Valley.

  • Driving speed in railway networks

TE offers the full range of Cat5e, Cat6 and Cat7 data cables covering 120 Ohm up to 10 Gb/s for on-board use and ground applications with matching M12 and M12 X Code connector series for data networks and sensors, train door control and HVAC systems.

  • Reduced weight and space while increasing capacity

Designed according to the latest European standard EN50467, the FXP series DEUTSCH connector can be used for all static and dynamic power applications on rolling stock – in a small, lightweight design and with higher electrical capacity.

  • Modularity adapted to your sensor needs

TE’s modular sensor design program will be on display. The program is suitable for any rail vehicle (high-speed train, locomotive, EMU/DMU, metro, tram and trolleybus) and application (propulsion, brake control and signaling).

Additionally, TE will share information on the recent acquisition of the ENTRELEC terminal block business from ABB.
