Power and Automation Technology for Train Makers to Rail Operators
ABB rail and urban transportation – Writing the future of mobility
When it comes to low-emission transport and fast, safe mobility, rail travel is difficult to beat. Urban centers are increasingly turning to high-speed trains to improve intercity connections, install light rail, metro systems and trams to alleviate congestion, reduce emissions and improve quality of life.
ABB has been a pioneer in rail technologies for over a century and continues to develop, manufacture and service critical components introducing new technologies for both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) urban rail transport applications. ABB is also working with partners to upgrade trains to meet future needs as sustainable transport enters a new era. This includes leading integrated and collaborative digital solutions with ABB Ability.
ABB provides power and automation technology for customers ranging from train makers to rail operators. It designs, engineers and commissions solutions to deliver safe, reliable, and cost effective rail freight and passenger transportation solutions.
ABB’s product offering includes traction transformers,motors and converters to move vehicles quickly and reliably. And for diesel trains, ABB’s generators and turbo chargers boost efficiency and power. To protect and control the electrical equipment in trains, ABB offers circuit breakers, contactors, connection devices and all types of electronic relays and timers for on-board applications.
The portfolio also includes power system solutions including traction substations that feed and distribute electricity to the lines, as well as high- and medium- voltage switch gear, converters and transformers necessary to power trains at a frequency they can use. ABB also delivers technologies to improve power quality and protect the network from voltage disturbances.
ABB AbilityTM : Keeping services on track
ABB also offers complete service, maintenance and refurbishment solutions, which are becoming increasingly important as rail operators seek cost-effective solutions to update or retrofit fleets to meet the demands of the future. As part of its service offering, ABB provides software-based solutions to facilitate the integration of operational and information technologies and enable asset health management.
