Electromagnets for trains and trams

   The rail transport market is subject to many very specific constraints. To be competitive in this market it is essential to meet the most exacting safety standards and also to be able to guarantee the durability of the employed electromagnets. For example, an electrified tram system will be subject to repeated voltage fluctuations in an aggressive environment (vibrations, impacts, corrosion, etc.) in which only top-quality components can guarantee passenger safety.  

  Thanks to its long-standing experience of supplying the leading stakeholders in this market, Binder Magnetic has developed electromagnets for every type of application. Consequently, we are able to offer automated systems for opening the doors of underground platforms or locking train doors, as well as AC and DC circuit-breakers and isolators for the power supplies of trams and trains.

   Our products can be adapted for use in all types of rail transport. For example in intercity or long-distance trains, as well as in underground systems, tram networks or even funicular railways
