Energy and telecom cable solutions for railway industry - Manufacturing, Other
As the world continues its rapid urbanisation, planning strategies, most notably for public transport lines, must adapt to meet demand. Alongside the infrastructure challenges posed by the development of new megacities, the railway industry must also consider escalating customer expectations, fierce competition and frequent advancements in technology. Railway systems themselves have undergone an intense period of modernisation with complex automation developments such as driverless trains and on-board communication systems. These advances demand cables with increasingly high levels of performance, reliability and safety.
Prysmian Group have developed new cable designs and materials to provide the latest in chemical and mechanical resistance, fire resistance, EMC behaviour and enhanced transmission capacity. We offer medium and low-voltage power cables, communication cables (also with optical fibre), and control and signalling cables and a full range of products ranging from central and distributed architectures, to CBTC, ETCS and interlocking technology.
We offer medium and low-voltage power cables, communication cables, and control and signalling cables, fibre cables, data cables and a full range of products to fulfil the requirements of different specifications of the authorities and/or contractors in the different parts of the world. As an example; the ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) – both ETCS (European Train Control System) and GSM-R (Global System for Mobile Communications - Railway) - and the CBTC (Communication Based Train Control) railway operational management approaches.
Prysmian is able to offer also a comprehensive range of cable accessories, including the renowned Bicon accessories brand - featuring FlexoTM Modular Power Systems, LV Joints, Cleats and other products, such as the Connecta Tunnel Lighting System - all designed with the cable in mind and therefore offering a robust system.
