Inter-vehicle gigabit jumper systems

Inter-vehicle gigabit jumper systems

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.
