Every train needs power, in one form or another. Normally every train also has batteries, converters and chargers. They are all important parts of the train, and play a big role how the train is performing.
Auxiliary power, battery and battery management technology has made a huge jump forward during the last years. State-of-the-art battery management- and charger solutions are available for the rail segment in different configurations, and they will give end-customers substantial added values, such as high system availability and extended life time.
Amaronia has teamed up with the Finnish company Powernet Ltd. which is a forerunner in both turn-key power solutions, but as well in standard products. Rail power solutions have been their key focus for several years, and today their solutions are used in hundreds of trains running daily.
Powernet has a long experience in developing especially custom design power supplies for railways, tram and metro applications. If you have special requirements for the power or battery chargers, do not hesitate to contact Amaronia. We will then together with Powernet design you a solution which will fit your requirements. The solutions serve applications such as:
High efficiency on board battery chargers and auxiliary power supplies
Train communication and monitoring systems
On board power distribution
Railway signaling and communication systems
Many of the solutions bring new features, as remote diagnostics and State of Health to battery management. We think that when customers know more about their batteries and charging mechanisms, this will decrease the overall cost and maintenance need. The Powernet solutions fit very well into the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) concept, which means that they can all be monitored and supervised remotely. This means intelligent battery charging, data logging and communication is here today!
