Inter-carriage solutions

Inter-carriage solutions
Wired Solution
Inter-vehicle systems must satisfy stringent demands, since the cables in motion are subjected to a wide range of different mechanical stresses. These are caused especially by vibration, bending and torsion in addition to occasionally extreme operating conditions and environmental influences.

System cables are manufactured on the basis of specific customer needs, taking into account the proven HUBER+SUHNER design guidelines. Manufacturing is fairly time-consuming because the cables pass through several in-line process operations. The earlier HUBER+SUHNER is familiarised with concrete projects, the easier it will be to satisfy the relevant customer needs.

As a system provider, HUBER+SUHNER offers professional consulting as early as during the development phase. In order to produce optimal cable design solutions, it makes sense in the project engineering phase to allow the widest possible latitude in terms of how the cores and elements are to be combined in the cables.

Wireless Solution
Data can be transmitted between carriages using antennas rather than cables. This means lower installation and maintenance costs, particularly for retrofitting. Less effort is also required to couple and uncouple the carriage.

The signal is often transmitted from carriage to carriage using Wi-Fi standard 802.11 a/n in the 5 GHz frequency band. This is mainly done to avoid problems between the various communication standards within a train. MIMO antennas also allow larger data volumes to be transmitted.

Recommended Products

Antennas for Connected Mobility

HUBER+SUHNER develops and produces robust, small form factor antennas for various industrial applications.

Carriage bridging antennas

Carriage bridging antennas

Small, directional medium gain WLAN / WiFi / ISM / DECT / cellular band antenna. Variants available optimised for harsh industrial, railway or indoor environment.

Linking of train coaches using antennas instead of cables reduces the service requirement when disconnecting coaches. These antennas must resist adverse environmental conditions. Wireless bridging is usually based on WiFi communication standards.

Features:

  • Directional outdoor antennas for WiFi applications
  • Inter-carriage link/wireless-bridge scenarios
  • Extremely rugged design
  • meets EN 50155 railway standard
  • Fire retardant according to DIN 5540-2, BS 6853, NF-F16-101/102, EN45545-2

Inter vehicle gigabit jumper system

Today’s inter-vehicle jumper systems must be capable of withstanding a diverse array of electrical, mechanical and climatic conditions Therefore, the design of the inter-vehicle jumper system must consider the influence from flow of current and the resulting heating, vibration, bending and torsion, as well as ambient temperature, ballast strikes, weathering, oils + fluids and various types of cleaning agent, to ensure long term service life.

The modular approach to solutions, with freely selectable services, enables HUBER+SUHNER expertise to be employed right from the outset of the "Electrical intervehicle jumper systems" subproject. The earlier HUBER+SUHNER obtains an insight into the project, the more flexibly we can exploit design and functionality to suit the customer’s requirements.
