Rail industry connector handles multiple data typesITT Interconnect Solutions will be showcasing its latest connector specifically developed for the rail industry on Stand 708 at Ferroviaria in Turin, Italy, from 8–10 June 2010.

The new VEAM CIR-M12 Databus connector has been specifically designed to enable different data types to be transmitted between railway carriages via a single connector. Ethernet, MVB, WTB and video lines can all be bundled within the same interconnect, so diverse data feeds such as engine diagnostics, brake controls, environmental conditioning, passenger display systems, networking and lighting control all pass through it.

An innovative design has been achieved by integrating four conductor wires and the associated braid from shielded cables into new Quadrax QXM12 contacts, mounting them into FRCIR circular bayonet connector hardware and utilising a special plastic insert to group the multiple contacts and their cables together. The CIR-M12 Databus connector can operate in temperatures from -40 to +125degC.
