For installing on rolling stock or around railway environment, electronic equipment must conform to some criteria such EN 50155, EN 50121-1, EN 50121-3-2, EN 50121-4 for environmental, shock, vibration, power surge, electromagnetic interference, and any transient factors that could occur when operating. Furthermore, obviously the equipment is required to operate with stable performance and high reliability for approximately considerable hours continuously without failure even in harsh conditions.
Our KGS-086X-WP switch series and KGS-0641-WP switch fulfill the requirements and criteria for the railway applications including high mechanical resistance to shock and vibration, and high electromagnetic immunity. They are also equipped with M12 high reliable industrial connectors and water-proof housing up to IP67 protection level. The performance, high resistance to harsh environments and reliability are assured absolutely.
To meet the requirements of electronic equipment on a train, it must fulfill stable performance under critical conditions such as shock, vibration, power supply, EMC and ESD, any transient factors may occur when operating. Of course, it includes employed for telematics, engine control, and etc. within the vehicle. These control systems require on rolling stock with the operation 24/7 for over decades or approximately considerable hours continuously without failure; i.e. train control systems must be designed for to the most critical situation. Meanwhile, these systems do not interfere when installed near, because equipment needs to be mounted closely on the limited surface of the control panel. Our KGS-086x series fulfills the requirements of the railway environment including high shock resistance, high resistance to electromagnetic interference, and high temperature endurance to keep stable communication for the train information and communication applications, surveillance system or railway signaling, security detection and CBTC (Communication-based Train Control).
