era3 automatic coupler

era3 automatic coupler

The era3 can be used on top and underneath. With its outer dimensions it is the optimum size to integrate not just control contacts but also data contacts. This means that it is perfectly equipped to meet almost all requirements. The contact equipment is generally customer-specific and can, in principle, be put together from our entire contract program. The connection line to the vehicle is made up of individual conductors and is led through a protective tube (hand plug optional).



The era-transceiver® is the interface for the high-speed data transfer between carriages of rail vehicles. Whereas the era-transceiver® works as an active component, it offers a signal regeneration in the network. Another major advantage of the system is the galvanically decoupled connection. This type of transmission is a secure connection to mechanical vibration and electromagnetic interference pulses, thus ensuring high availability in your train.
