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 Ether- net 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 vehi- cles, 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 to IP69K: Receptacle, also empty and dummy receptacle, with closed lid, and 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.
