The railroad sector is constantly looking for solutions for catenary-free trams. IKERLAN has been working hand in hand with CAF-TE in response to the need of developing secure software to energize the tram for a safe load handling.
The solution is based on developing SIL-2 software by using the VEGA hardware from CAF. The software safely controls the energizing and de-energizing of the cargo area.
The development of SIL-2 software ensures the reliability of the solution provided by mitigating the risk of accidents at the time of loading the tram.
Thanks to this system, CAF-TE developed the charge point control for electrification processes of the on board accumulator or fast charge accumulator (ACR, Acumulador de Carga Rápida); an innovative technological solution of energization for trams without catenary and BRT systems 100 % electric with charge points / stations.
This project allows CAF-TE to take the lead among solution provider companies for catenary-free trams.
