Rectangular coupler for railway applications
Hypertac has introduced a new rectangular modular coupler for railway applications, from high-speed trains to metros. The Hypertac FH coupler connectors and jumpers interconnect the train vehicles, linking the power, signal and high speed transmissions from the front locomotive to the back of the train. Based on the company’s proven Hyperboloid contact technology, these shock and vibration proof contact systems eliminate fretting, and provide low contact resistance.The
The Hypertac FH coupler offers two possible locking systems: either a tightening by four screws or a lever assisted locking mechanism. Both options ensure IP68 sealing and a perfect ground electrical continuity.
