Sub-rack series is configurable for railways
With its 19inch sub-rack series FerroRail, PolyRack offers a verified rack-mount system for configurable enclosures and systems for the railway industry. The series is suitable for all applications in railway and transport system, says the company.
It meets the demanding requirements in the railway and transportation market and the specific demands of the French railways SNCF for electronic components. This includes the standard EN 50155, which combines important standards for on track vehicles. It regulates aspects such as power distribution, isolation coordination, electromagnetic compatibility, shock and vibration resistance (NF EN 61373) as well as specific fire and smoke protection standards (NF 16-101/102, class F1, I2). In addition, the series corresponds to the standards NF F 60-005 as well as NF F 67-012 and NF F 60-002 (mechanical test for French rail vehicles).
Basic constructions are available in two designs: standard products have a side plate extension as well as a cable distribution frame, the IEEE-versions are also available in a shortened version and shielded with EMC-springs. In order to design the basic constructions vibration-proof, the side plate and mounting brackets as well as the rear corner brackets are joined and the horizontal rails secured with two screws each side.
Assembly and accessory parts include, for example, standardised guidance profiles or coding pins. Furthermore card guides made of polycarbonate (PC) are used.
