Locomotive and carriages construction

Cembre has a vast range of electrical equipment used in the fitting of train carriages.

Cembre products are used for wiring in train carriages and locomotives. Some of these have been specifically designed in order to guarantee maximum performance in the specific area of use, for example, the insulated, reinforced and vibrating-resistant crimp terminals. A small copper cylinder is inserted into these between the terminal neck and the polyamide sleeve. During the compression, this is deformed on the wire insulation allowing the force to move towards the insulator thus uniformly distributing the energy of the accumulated vibrations and improving the overall mechanical seal.

Moreover, many CEMBRE products used in the railway sector comply with the EN 45545-2 standard, as they have received the Fire-smoke certification. Following specific laboratory tests, this certifies the fire behavior of materials and products used on railway vehicles.
