Railway locomotive & rolling stock cables
APAR’s extensive line of quality rail and transit cables ensure performance, reliability and safety while lowering costs through easier and faster installation, simplified maintenance and infrastructure longevity.
Railway networks probably require the broadest range of cabling solutions covering a lot of different functions:
1. Catenary lines and their contact wires that power the train traction 2. High voltage and medium voltage power feeder 3. High, medium and low voltage distribution networks as well as earthing/grounding connections 4. Signalling and control cables 5. Communication cables with twisted pairs 6. Coaxial or optical elements 7. LAN cables 8. Locomotive and rolling stock cables 9. Coach wiring APAR’s extensive line of quality rail and transit cables ensure performance, reliability and safety while lowering costs through easier and faster installation, simplified maintenance and infrastructure longevity. We consistently provide innovative solutions and better technology to overcome challenges faced in the ever-evolving rail and mass transit applications: from general-purpose control wiring, cab control area and HVAC system cables, to speed sensor control, train line control and interconnect cables, interior on-car body signal, power, control and communications wiring.
|Application||APAR has a vast product range including all cables used by moving vehicles across railway, metro, coach and underground rail infrastructure. These are used for power, control, communications, heating and ventilation inside the vehicles.|
|Characteristics||Our cable range remains the best choice for rapid transit, locomotive and rolling stock wires. Its application-specific and custom-engineered cable designs meet your exact needs.
Coach wiring and locomotive cables are manfuactured through the EBXL process.
|Applicable standards||IS & EN standards, IRIS – TS 22163, ELRS 0019, CLW 0458 & 0459, IRS S 63, E-14 -01 & 02, EN 50264, EN-50306.|
|Product range||MV & track feeder cables, signalling cables, rolling stock cables, fibre optic cables, feeder & bonding cables, contact wires, trolley wires.|
|Advantages||In comparison with the principal alternative, the diesel engine and electric railway offers substantially better energy efficiency, lower emissions and lower operating costs. Electric locomotives are also usually quieter, more powerful, more responsive and reliable than the diesel ones. They have no local emissions, an important advantage in tunnels and urban areas.|
