Railway connector meets EN 45545 smoke and fire standard

High reliability is a feature of the newly launched MSG 3U connector from Esterline Connection Technologies –SOURIAU. It is designed for on-board or on-ground Train Control Monitoring System and Train Information Management System applications, the MSG 3U connector by Esterline Connection Technologies.

It complies with EN 45545, the most stringent smoke and fire standard and is one of the few connectors on the market that have been specially developed for 3U racks.

Already adopted by several rail-equipment manufacturers, the MSG 3U is currently being employed in a large number of projects and will be presented at:InnoTrans (Booth 216 Hall 12) and APTA (Booth 1701).

The connector is small, and it is shielded inside a metal hood on the plug and receptacle sides for full protection against electromagnetic interference and signal degradation.  MSG3U is available in 3 layouts: with 29 and 41 standard contacts and with up to five Quadrax Ethernet contacts.

The Quadrax version can transmit signals at speeds of up to 100 Mbps and the design allows users to select grounded or ungrounded contacts. Its quick, tool-less locking/unlocking system and front accessibility are perfect for night-time maintenance jobs requiring minimal time without disrupting train service.
