Railway and Metro Cable
The railway industry must maintain certain standards regarding safety, communications, and efficiency. This can be difficult in many cities that rely on rail and metro systems on a daily basis. Many systems have a complex network of wires and cabling that help the trains operate at maximum efficiency. A signal cable is an essential tool in this network. This type of cable ensures smooth and reliable movement of trains across urban areas. They must maintain a reliable power supply so metro systems can effectively carry passengers and cargo with little rest.
In addition to maintaining a strong power supply, a railway or metro cable must also have fire retardant qualities. They need to be able to facilitate the operation of signal lights, beacons, and axle counters. Other qualities you’ll find in metro cables include:
- Excellent stripping
- Halogen-free applications
- Crosstalk attenuation
- High transmission rates
Cables for control connection must be heat resistant and contain a copper shield to help prevent electromagnetic interferences.
Airfield Signal Cable
Airports must maintain signaling capability on runways at all times. This means using high-quality airfield cable solutions to remain compliant with safety standards. An airport lighting cable is used to illuminate runways for pilots upon takeoff and landing. Other cables used in airport infrastructures involve telecommunication, power, and fire resistant cables.
Airport lighting cables are designed with either primary or secondary circuits. A primary circuit cable is typically used between transformers and current regulators on runways. These must be weather-resistant and durable. A secondary circuit cable maintains a connection between lamps and transformers on the runway. They’re designed to be flexible and contain a double core. Airports utilizing solar illumination must also rely on solar cable solutions to maintain consistent lighting.
