Delivering high-power performance for railways
Diesel locomotives, DMU (Diesel Multiple Units) and electric rolling stock operate in some of the world’s most punishing conditions from the cold of the Arctic to the heat of the desert.
Saft’s SRX nickel-cadmium batteries deliver guaranteed power for starting the engine – even in freezing temperatures – for emergency braking, tilting, and for raising pantographs for diesel locomotives, diesel multiple units, and electric rolling stock. Used where high current discharges are required, they can deliver short-duration, high-current discharges of up to 1 minute and up to 20 times capacity for instantaneous diesel engine starts. SRX provides also energy for backup applications.
