Danaher Motion’s Thomson Electrak LA10 and LA14 actuators, available from Treotham , allow for simple and reliable linear motion and meet the regulatory requirements.
Distributed in Australia by Treotham Automation, the LA10 and LA14 Thomson Electrak actuators have been approved to the EN50121-3-2 EMC standards for use in the railway industry.
The electromagnetic environment in railway installations is demanding as disturbance sources are often in close proximity to sensitive electronic systems, some of which perform a safety-critical function.
It is essential to assess the EMC risks to ensure safe and reliable operation of the railway. The part three and section two of the EN50121 covers all train mounted apparatus.
The LA10 and LA14 Thomson Electrak actuators are appropriate for use inside and outside the train, and are used to lower pantographs (the electrical pick-up on the top of trains and trams).
These Thomson Electrak actuators are used for raising and lowering steps, providing wheel chair lift access to carriages and a variety of other applications.
