Wabtec Corp Transit Car Products Conventional Discs

Conventional Discs Monobloc and Split

Monobloc axle mounted discs have a friction ring and hub cast in one piece.  There are two types of discs that use a friction ring bolted to a separate hub.  One type has a single-piece friction ring; another has a two-piece friction ring bolted together and then bolted to the hub. Monobloc discs are available in diameters from 380 mm to 710 mm (15 to 28 in.); split discs are available in diameters of 457, 533, and 686 mm (18, 21, and 27 in.).  Disc designs are also available in wheel-mounted disc applications where a monobloc is bolted to the outside of the wheel flange. These designs can vary from 610 to 711 mm (24 to 28 in.) outside diameter at varying disc thickness.

Customer Specific Displays (Stretched Displays)

Customer Specific Displays (Stretched Displays)

To provide passengers with an increasing amount of information is purpose and priority for passenger information systems. But the architecture and design of railway vehicles often leaves only a limited amount of space and area for displays in the common 4:3 or 16:9 formats. The licensed Stretched Display technology of ANNAX allows the efficient production of displays in new formats, which can be installed in areas of a vehicle which were previously unavailable. ANNAX provides the successful LED backlight technology for the new Stretched Displays, and thanks to the available luminosity between 300 cd to 1500 cd per square metre, great readability and high contrast are ascertained for both interior and exterior display applications. The usage of proved and tested TFT and LED technology ensures a high reliability and long-life cycle of ANNAX products.
 
ANNAX Stretched Display Produktion
In the year 2012 ANNAX acquired the license to cut and reseal TFT displays from Tannas Electronics. The new, licensed technology allows ANNAX to cut regular TFT displays down to a customer and application specific size. Since the TFT displays are immediately resealed after being cut, the displays retain all of their functionality, technical characteristics and longevity they had before the process. This new technology is a strategic investment of ANNAX to stay technologically ahead in the area of passenger information displays. ANNAX produces Stretched Displays at its own site in Suzhou (LINK). The entire production process stays within the company. By implementing this new technology and keeping the production process within the company, ANNAX remains a leading provider of customer specific solution in the area of display technology for the passenger information system market.

Wabtec Transit Car Products Oil-lubricated

D-4 and D-5 Oil-lubricated

Wabtec D-4 and D-5 oil-lubricated models feature advanced-design piston rings that control oil consumption to a minimum.  They feature exhaust mufflers and vibration isolators for reduced-noise operation.  These air compressors utilize standard NEMA frame AC motors attached to the compressor portion via an adapter bracket.  The compressor and motor shafts are connected by a flexible drive coupling.
The D-5 compressor is designed for lower air volume applications.  The D-5 uses the service-proven components of the D-4 compressors, but reduces the underfloor mounting space and power usage.

Wabtec Transit Car Products DECELOSTAT Equipment

DECELOSTAT® Equipment

The E-7 DECELOSTAT electronic unit controls either three-state pneumatic valves (axle-configuration, low-flow UIC type) or high-flow, fast-response valves for bogie and dual brake configurations.  The equipment can be configured for active or passive speed sensors positioned on each axle of the car, per bogie or per axle pneumatic valves and an electronic controller.

wabtec westinghouse air brake Digital Air Gauges

Digital Air Gauges

The 737/758 digital pressure gauges and 747/768 digital AFM’s are the latest innovation in cab air gauge technology. As with the analogue pressure gauges, the digital pressure gauges come with dual displays. This dual function does the work of two single gauges, requires half the panel space, and costs less. The auto-dimming feature provides optimum viewing of the digital display under any ambient light condition. All digital gauges will interface with the standard gauge base which makes them to be interchangeable with current Wabtec analogue gauges. The standard gauge base also allows the gauges to be removed without disrupting the pipe connections. All digital gauges are able to be calibrated in the field and the digital design allows for longer intervals between calibration. The 758 digital pressure gauge and 768 digital AFM come with AAR compliant, 8-pole, A-coded, female M12 Ethernet connector. Digital gauges and AFM’s are available with either green or black faceplates.
 
Digital Pressure Gauge and AFM Operating Specifications

  • Temperature: 0 to 158° F
  • Pressure: 0-199 psi
  • Voltage: 20-138 VDC

Wabtec westinghouse air brake technologies company Dual Flow Valve

Dual Flow Valve

Vista Corporation has rebuilt over 3500 GE style water control valves. These valves include the dual flow used on 1987 through 1993 Dash 8's and the V1 and V2 used on the GE Dash 9 and AC4400 locomotives. All valves received are completely disassembled, cleaned, and inspected by our fully trained craftsmen. Valve bodies are re-plated back to original specifications. The actuator is overhauled; replacing all o-rings along with new bronze bushings and any other parts found to be defective during inspection. GE style water valves can be rebuilt to the GE specification, your specification, or Vista will be happy to suggest a rebuild guideline tailored to your specific needs to give you years of reliability.

Wabtec Transit Car ProductsThird Rail Current Collector

DYNAGLIDE® Third Rail Current Collector

Wabtec manufactures the DYNAGLIDE® Third Rail Current Collector for high-performance power collection on all modern passenger rail vehicles. An elastomeric torsion unit provides paddle contact pressure and vibration dampening. Paddle height and contact pressure are adjustable on the vehicle. The collector is easy to maintain since there are no bearings requiring periodic lubrication. Third rail top-running and under-running styles are available. DYNAGLIDE® collectors have an insulating bracket directly mountable to the steel truck frame. They are equipped with a current limiting fuse and with an open fuse indicator to visually alert inspectors that maintenance is required. The collector paddle is designed to brake free from the collector paddle mounting if it encounters an obstruction on the third rail. This safety feature minimizes the possibility of damage to the collector assembly or to the third rail and its insulators.
