nVent Schroff Varistar EMC

    VARISTAR - Electronics Cabinet for Indoor Railway Applications

    The nVent SCHROFF Varistar EMC is one of the very few electronic cabinets which has been tested successfully according to EN 61000-5-7 up to 18 GHz in addition to IEC 61587-3 and offers best-in-class shielding protection: Attenuation of 40 dB at 3 GHz and 30 dB at 10 GHz with a solid door.

    High-performance EMC protection for rail signaling and communication equipment

    • Signaling and communications equipment has to perform safely, especially in critical environments
    • Ensuring effective coordination of trains, through a reliable and high speed data bandwidth
    • Improving real-time data integrity, minimizing delays, ensuring immediate maintenance.

    VARISTAR: MASTERING EVERY DISCIPLINE

    Vibration and Shock Resistant

    Varistar_IP55_01005006.jpg

    The nVent SCHROFF Varistar electronics cabinet must operate in accordance with the requirements of all situations. It has therefore been designed such that you can depend on it one-hundred percent even under extreme environmental conditions. After all, it is reliability, down to the last detail, that makes complex safety tasks achievable - and also economic.

    Hard-Facts

    Based on the Project

    • Robust: Proven mechanical design for mobile applications
    • Secure: Shock and vibration resistant to DL6 of IEC 61587-1, IEC 60068-2-6 and EN 50125-3
    • Extra secure: Additional protection with optional shock absorbers
    • Certified: Welding of railway vehicles and components according to EN 15085-2 based on the project
    • Shielded: Exceptional shielding characteristics as standard: 60 dB at 1 GHz, 40 dB at 3 GHz
    • Ideal cooling: Heat removal to your exact requirements with a variety of cooling concepts; water cooling of up to 40 kW
    • Well protected: Protection class up to IP 55
    • Cable Management: Wide range of accessories to support easy installation

    Two Classes of Payload, One Cabinet

    • Slim-Line: The special Slim-Line extruded profile is capable of a static load-carrying capacity of 400 kg with a minimum of materials, and satisfies the DL5 and DL6 requirement classes of IEC 61587-1 for dynamic loads.

    • Heavy-Duty: The robust Heavy-Duty frame was specially designed for high load-carrying applications. Thanks to its higher bending stiffness it can accept a static load of 800 kg, while under dynamic loads it satisfies classes DL5 and DL6 of IEC 61587-1. Dynamic tests also demonstrate earthquake resistance up to bellcore zone 4.
