ABB offers a broad portfolio of products, systems and services for rolling stock - including traction transformers, converters, motors and many other components for all types of rail applications.
Smaller, lighter traction transformers
Small is beautiful. But when it comes to onboard traction technology, smaller is better. ABB has taken on the challenge and developed a prototype power electronic transformer that achieves weight savings and space savings for the trains of tomorrow.
More space for passengers
ABB is helping to increase passenger capacity on existing rail lines by continuously developing new traction components that make rail networks more productive and efficient. One example of many is a new traction transformer that can be fully integrated into the roof of double-deck trains for commuter, regional and intercity services.
Traction systems that make a difference
Long-term partnerships with vehicle builders, refurbishers and rail operators enable ABB to deliver reliable and innovative traction systems with exceptional power density, energy efficiency, and best-in-class control hardware and software.
Raising the bar in commuter rail networks
ABB has developed a highly compact, lightweight and powerful traction transformer for the first dual-powered locomotive in North America – a locomotive that switches automatically from diesel to electric mode and enables passengers to remain on the same train for the entire journey.
The new high-speed DC circuit breaker
ABB has developed an innovative high-speed DC circuit breaker that requires half the space and weighs only two-thirds of its contemporaries, making it ideal for light rail, urban and intercity rolling stock.
Cutting back the kilos for faster urban rail systems
Weight is of crucial importance in rapid rail transit systems, where every kg affects the train’s speed, energy consumption and operating costs. New ABB low voltage panels for monorails weigh 30 percent less than the industry standard.
Overvoltage protection makes high-speed trains safe and reliable
ABB surge arresters for rail applications are designed to protect electrical equipment from overvoltage on high-speed trains operating at speeds of up to 360 km/h.
Robots raise efficiency, reliability and productivity
ABB robot technology is transforming manufacturing activities in the rail industry with new levels of efficiency, reliability and productivity through safe, flexible and speedy robot automation.
