Heating of railway vehicles, rail tracks and switches
We’re always looking for ways to enhance our products, which is why we are now able to serve customers operating in the field of railway engineering. Especially in northern European countries where temperatures drop way below 0°C, electric heat is crucial to maintain railway transportation in winter.
As such applications are subject to fire protection norms (DIN EN45545), operation safety and temperature limitation are key. DBK’s PTC heaters are perfectly suited to fulfill such requirements as their maximum temperature can be limited to e.g. 200°C.
Depending on the application’s pollution degree, voltage level, and environmental conditions, our finned resistor heaters
, convection heaters
and surface heaters
can be designed according common railway standards.
