Robust and state-of-the-art Ethernet solutions for fast data comunication are required by today‘s rail vehicles. The UIC-IT series from Schaltbau meets those requirements providing a highly flexible, universal and reliable Ethernet connection option for the harsh railway environment with a design life that will last for decades.
The UIC-IT Series connector is fitted with up to two 8 pole Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) module and 16 optional signal contacts that allows for universal and compatible connections. It is designed for use with various types of rail vehicles, making it possible to combine rolling stock of different manufacturers and railway operators.

Features

Variants:

  • 2× 8-pole Gigabit Ethernet module, shell orange
  • 1× 8-pole Gigabit Ethernet module + 16 signal contacts, shell yellow
  • 1× 8-pole Gigabit Ethernet module, shell green

Shells:
The shells of cable plug, receptacle and dummy receptacle are
IRS 50558 compliant. The rugged proven shells are the same as the ones of other UIC 558 connectors from Schaltbau.

  • Receptacle, dummy and empty receptacle: Aluminium die cast – rugged and durable
  • Plug: Polyamide, glass fibre reinforced

Contact inserts:

  • Gigabit Ethernet module: 360° shielded module with 8 terminals
    for 4 data pairs for the transmission of 10 GbE in a permanent link
    with Cat 7 compliant data cables
  • Signal contacts: 16 signal contacts for additional control tasks as
    required, for example, by DB AG for salvage and clearing operations

Assembly:

  • Suitable for gangway connections
  • Quick and easy to assemble
  • Seals can be replaced without disassembling the contacts

Other features:

  • Break-away connector: Non-destructive disengagement of pulg contacts from receptacle contacts when two electrically not decoupled vehicles move apart. In compliance with IRS 50558.
  • Design life: up to 10,000 mating cycles
  • Cable assembly: We supply on request receptacles and plugs assembled complete with cables or wires to suit the customer’s specific requirements.
  • Sealed:
    IP67: receptacle, also empty and dummy receptacle, with closed lid
    IP69K: connector when mated, cable entry of plug included
  • Flammability: UL94-V0 listed and complies with fire protection standard EN 45545
  • Weatherproof and temperature resistant: –40° C up to +90° C for entire connector

Applications

Data transmission with high transmisson rates via Gigabit Ethernet fascilitated by a long-lasting heavy-duty connector is tantamount to high network availability. With its new UIC-IT series Schaltbau is likely to set a standard for data connections in rail vehicles.
We can also supply contact inserts for special applications.
