To get the sub-components data you need, we plug into existing connectors and sensors and reuse existing cable-ways. We find clever ways to minimize the installation time for a cost-effective and fast series deployment and provide you with updated electrical schematics and a pre-crimped cable kit.
The ultra wide range of input voltages makes it easy to power-up the Railster on any train. Plug it to the 220V AC socket in the driver desk, the 24V DC battery, or the 72V DC circuit with no external converter. The Railster accepts anything within 12 – 110 V DC and 110 V AC – 220 V AC range. We have also included the possibility to limit the input power consumption to 5W in case there is limited auxiliary power left on your train.
No external antenna required
The Railster does not need an external roof antenna and works perfectly from inside the train. We have tested our GPS receiver behind windshields of many trains: Bombardier Traxx Locomotives, Alstom Prima, Vossloh, Ansaldobreda V250. No expensive antennae, no drilling, and no re-homologation needed.
