TE Connectivity railway switch isolated with GIPRO products
About the project
Maintenance costs also decrease with the new system, while its improved aerodynamic profile contributes to a more comfortable passenger experience, significantly reducing noise during operation.
The system connects different TE cable systems in a central vacuum circuit breaker. The necessary bushings or dummy plugs (for unused outlets) were developed by TE with a novel fastening solution and were accompanied by GIPRO from the sampling to the production stage and manufactured using highly insulating cast resin. It was a project, that was done in mutual partnership between the engineering team of TE and the GIPRO insulator experts in Austria.

For this application, GIPRO also supplies insulating end plugs for the TE RSTI cable connector series and so-called U-connectors for connecting two cable ends at any point on the railcar roof. You can find more information here.
