The connector complies with the requirements of UIC 558 VE (until 1994: UIC 568VE). It connects lines used for remote control of lights and doors or for public address systems in passenger coaches or multiple unit trains. In addition to that, the connectors of this series are also suitable for trans­mission of binary data, e.g. CAN bus.

Schaltbau has developed a new replacement insert for the recept­acle of the UIC558 con­nector which is likely to re­duce main­tenance and downtime consider­ably. For usually, if during main­tenance it becomes necessary to replace worn contacts, you have to cut the old cable in order to replace the insert and after that wire a new cable to it or, in the worst case, rewire the whole railway vehicle. Now, there is no need of a cable replace­ment any longer. All you need do is exchange the replace­ment insert of the receptacle. You can do that from the front and outside the engine shed and even do without the electrical test of the connector’s contacts and wires.

Features

  • Break-away connector for a non-destructive separation of plug and receptacle when two electrically not decoupled vehicles move apart
  • Replacement insert with socket contacts implemented on both sides
  • No need of rewiring the rail vehicle
  • No need of electrical testing the connector’s contacts and wires
  • Increased corrosion resistance to chemicals, in particular to detergents containing acids or alkalis
  • Flammability rating to UL94-V0 and EN 45545
  • Keying prevents connectors from mismating with connectors carrying different inserts
  • 13 pole plug intermateable with 18 pole receptacle in accordance
    with UIC 558 VE

Applications

The connector complies with the requirements of UIC 558 VE. It connects lines used for the:

  • Remote control of lights
  • Remote control of doors
  • Public address systems in passenger coaches and multiple units
  • Transmission of binary data

We can also supply contact inserts for special applications.
