► Main Drive plus Auxiliary Converter components: REO-USA reveals a one-stop shop at APTA EXPO

October 6th, 2014

Some railway component makers focus on Main Drives and others specialize in Auxiliary Converters. Few if any cover the gamut of both as fully as REO-USA. Attendees at the upcoming APTA EXPO can see for themselves when REO-USA (booth 4300) showcases an extensive range of railway components at the October 12-15 event, being held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

"Integrated solutions can enhance both short- and long-term performance and payback for railway equipment and service providers," contends Barbara Miller, REO-USA Vice President of North American Operations. The company's 25,000 sq. ft. headquarters in Indianapolis is ISO 9001 certified; German-based parent company REO is IRIS certified.

REO Components dispalyed at APTA EXPO 2014

REO-USA covers the gamut of railway applications with long-lasting, high-performance components, many of which will be displayed at the APTA EXPO.

"Our end-to-end railway applications expertise and firsthand know-how ensure that individual or interrelated products for the U.S. market can be tailored as needed to more cost-effectively meet user demands. Of course, our extensive raw material selection also simplifies procurement. We partner with companies in China and India as well as Europe, enabling us to quickly and efficiently respond to the needs of railway organizations worldwide while maintaining the highest quality standards." more

► Cost-effective protection without enclosures: IP 65-66 rated REO-USA components at APTA EXPO

October 1st, 2014

The elements can wreak havoc on exposed components, be it dust and debris, rain, saltwater or human-inflicted, hose-jet cleaning solutions. And special enclosures for external components can cost a bundle.

Solutions are readily available, however, via fully encapsulated REO-USA sinusoidal filters, line reactors, load reactors and other components with ingress protection ratings including IP65-66.

REO-USA's latest IP65-66 rated, fully encapsulated terminal box and sinusoidal filter will be on display at the APTA EXPO.

Visitors to booth 4300 during the October 12-15 APTA EXPO at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, can see firsthand look at how these components pay their way.

They can be mounted anywhere, underneath trains, on top of vehicles (a hybrid bus maker already has) or other external locations. Even when exposed to the elements, the components themselves are fully protected. They simply shut out dust and shrug off moisture and other aggressive attackers, whether from Mother Nature or manmade.

In addition to high IP ratings, components can also be designed with a pollution degree of PD4, the highest possible rating according to IEC 60664-1. The pollution degree is a classification of the amount of dry pollution and condensation in any given environment. This is an important factor to consider for any component mounted outside of the train.

"Our IP66 rated components offer a highly cost-effective solution for railway applications," says REO-USA Sales Engineer Alex Ward. "A range of input, output and DC-link chokes, braking resistors and sinusoidal filters provides unsurpassed flexibility for mounting components externally. These encapsulated products also save both the space and the expense of special enclosures." more
