Connector designed for railway application selectro pneumatic brakes.
Connector to UIC standard 541-5 VE, EP Series
Connector designed in accordance with specifications of the international railway standard UIC 541-5.
It adds to the range of our well-proven connectors for the railway industry.
This heavy-duty connector is designed to ensure the electrical connection within a train for the electropneumatic brakes (EP brakes) as well as the bypass of an electropneumatic emergency brake.
Both systems have functions which overlap through their control and monitoring elements.
They are fed by a common electrical cable that runs the length of the train.
Integrated in the receptacle is a switching element as pilot contact which is used for feedback signalling a plug being mated. whereas the end of train is signalled by means of a pin contact in the dummy receptacle.
