Messe Berlin GmbH
ExpoCenter City

InnoTrans is the leading international trade fair for transport technology and takes places every two years in Berlin. InnoTrans occupies all 41 halls available at Berlin Exhibition Grounds and is sub-divided into the five segments; Railway Technology, Railway Infrastructure, Public Transport, Interiors and Tunnel Construction. The Innotrans Convention, the event’s top-level supporting program, complements the trade fair. A unique feature of InnoTrans is its Outdoor display, where everything from tank wagons to high-speed trains are displayed on 3500 metres of track.

New generation of roofline systems

Premiering at InnoTrans 2016

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is introducing a new generation of roofline systems as a world debut at InnoTrans. TE will present its modular roofline approach in response to demand for subsystems that are lightweight and reliable in spite of harsh environmental challenges. A prototype roofline module will be on show on TE’s stand in Hall 12, Booth 210.

Roofline systems transmit electrical power at high voltage from the catenary line to the traction transformer and include components such as the pantograph, surge arrestors, circuit breakers, power cables, insulated bushings and metering transformers. Their reliability can be reduced by humid, polluted and low pressure conditions. This has led to rolling stock manufacturers re-engineering roofline systems to withstand each operator’s environment.

TE created its new modular approach to roofline systems so that manufacturers can use a single design for all operating environments. It combines reliable operation with low profile and lightweight design that can play a role in limiting overall height of double decker rolling stock and most importantly, improve aerodynamic performance.

At InnoTrans, TE will also be highlighting its products and systems for trackside, power and signal, and cable identification solutions.
