EMC shielding for railway technology
From the driver's cab to the on-board restaurant and information systems - a large number of electrical and electronic systems ensure the smooth functioning of the entire train and the comfort of the passengers. Therefore it is important to ensure electromagnetic compatibility ( ). On the one hand, the devices must harmonize with each other, and on the other hand external railroad technology systems, such as the signaling systems and switch control systems or cell phones and laptops of passengers must not be disturbed or interfere with each other. In addition to an extensive portfolio of EMC materials, MTC offers fabric/foil over foam gaskets that are certified to UL94-V0 and also meet the fire protection standard DIN EN 45545-2 for use in rail vehicles.
Whether converters or operating terminals - our EMC shielding materials, metal parts and thermally conductive products are also indispensable in railway technology.
Electrically conductive elastomers are used to combine electromagnetic compatibility and protection against environmental influences. Especially in outdoor applications, these products ensure that the complete system is protected from moisture and dirt. At the same time, excellent shielding properties are achieved by connecting the housing parts in an electrically conductive manner.
Fabric/foil over foam gaskets are used in control cabinets of the train, ensuring reliable electrical contact and thus optimum -shielding is provided. In addition, customer-specific honeycomb and fan filters can be used to ensure optimum ventilation of the control cabinet.
EMC protection can also be achieved for operator terminals and info terminals by using shielded windows. In addition, a touchscreen application can be implemented by using our ITO-coated windows.
The following and thermal solutions have proven themselves for railway technology:
- SMD contact springs in inverters for drive
- Fabric/foil over foam gaskets for the shielding of control cabinets
- Gap pads in brake control units
- Gap filler in headlight systems
