Rolling stock, rail automation and ships have to cope with a whole range of environmental influences. These sometimes adverse conditions, along with the high levels of functional reliability required, place extreme demands on the mechanical and electrical components that are used to operate the vehicles.

 

Weidmüller has successfully met these challenges. The product range, specifically tailored for use in the railway and ship building industry, contains electrical components and electronic modules that are safeguarded against failure thanks to their long service life, a high degree of automation and low maintenance requirements.

Vibration-resistant signal communication for digital maneuvering systems

WDZ module as an isolating converter for serial interfaces

 

Initial situation

The digital maneuvering system from Rolls-Royce Marina Division is in charge of controlling the water jet and the propeller for a variety of ships. The maneuvering system can, for example, change the gradient of the propellers. Normally, the signal lines on the individual modules are connected with a Sub-D/D-Sub connection. Rolls-Royce had a special requirement that these should be tension-clamp connections in order to guarantee a maintenance-free and vibration-resistant connection.

 

Solution

According to the specific requirements from Rolls-Royce, Weidmüller developed the WDZ isolating converter for serial interfaces. The WDZ uses the tension-clamp connection system to establish safe communications between the different components within the ships maneuvering system. This made the vibration-resistant WDZ module perfect for the special operating conditions found on board a ship.

High-speed with HighPower

RockStar® HighPower

 

Initial situation

Speeds like those of the Velaro® D high-speed trains from Siemens can only be reached because these trains no longer employ the motor in a locomotive. Instead the motor is positioned over the drive axes for acceleration. So the focus is no longer on just the locomotive, since the electronic systems and sub-systems are built into and distributed over the length of the entire train. A large variety of wide-area cable connections are required in order to reliably transmit signals throughout these systems.

 

Solution

One of these connections within the Velaro® Dis made by Weidmüller’s RockStar® HighPower connector. This product was specially developed for high-current applications involving motor power cables, eddy-current brakes and train carriage crossovers. The system is pluggable so that it is quick and easy to swap out components during maintenance work.

Supply and communication in the ship's control system

GL certified power supply units and Ethernet switches

 

Initial situation

As a service provider, consultant, designer and inventor, S-two offers solutions for all tasks in the area of intelligent ship's control systems. For equipping their control cabinets, Enfinity chooses components with GL certification. This makes the total approval, perhaps by Germanischer Lloyd, of the control cabinet easier. In addition, high quality and compactness of the cabinet’s components is important to them

 

Solution

Germanischer Lloyd (GL) has issued GL approval for the sturdy switch mode power supplies of the PRO-M range and Weidmüller's Industrial Ethernet switches. These components can be used without restrictions in national and international ship construction, in marine technical buildings and the offshore area. In S-two's systems, Weidmüller's components impress with their distinct advantages.

Secure railway lighting for the underground

Customer-specifically assembled Klippon® STB sheet steel enclosures

 

Initial situation

Switzerland and Austria were in the spotlight in the summer of 2008 as joint hosts for the European Football Championship. Traffic logistics, particularly in the capital Vienna, were a huge challenge. During the past years, the city of Vienna has been motivated by a growing population and concerns for the environment, and has been actively promoting its subway rail system, which was first built in 1898. For the U2 extension between the Praterstern station and the stadium there should be a secure lighting system for marking the emergency exits.

 Solution

The Klippon® STB series of enclosures was developed specially for the extreme demands encountered in the chemical or food-processing industries, or in building and process automation. Upon customer request, the enclosures were equipped with ceramic terminals from the SAKK range. These terminals are perfect for this application as they are heat and spark resistant, and certified against leakage current. Moreover, their material has a very high chemical stability and is particularly resistant to wear.
