Electric Multiple Units

The construction, design and driving characteristics of the low-floor electric train enable successful implementation and superb traveling comfort in regional passenger traffic in regard to the length of the route.

Passenger space is uniform along the entire train, without partitions and stairs. Floor height is optimal for 550 mm high platforms. The train has up to eight doors on each side, which enables the rapid exchange of passengers, and an air-conditioned passenger compartment and driver’s cab.

The main frame is a four-part welded steel construction linked with joints. The body consists of aluminum sandwich panels and windows. All bogies are equipped with air suspension systems, and two side drive bogies, while three free bogies are of the Jacobs type.

Three-phase asynchronous traction motors, fed from an electronic IGBT inverter provide high acceleration at start-up and a maximum speed of 160 km/h. The steering and diagnostic system is a microprocessor system that links the train subsystems with modern communication protocols that allow for linking up to three trains into one.
