Components

Vossloh Kiepe’s electrical components match the high rail industry standards and comply with all relevant codes, guidelines and regulations. Over a century of experience in development and production plus our strict testing and inspection criteria are an assurance of ultimate functionality and quality.

Converters

Power converters convert the electrical energy from the contact wire or the energy storage unit for the connected electrical components and systems. Vossloh Kiepe's range of converters covers any field of application from traction with many hundreds of kilowatt power to the various on-board power supply systems, e.g. with 24 V DC or 230 V AC.

Air conditioning systems

HVAC systems for public transport vehicles. Among the most important subsidiaries of Vossloh Kiepe GmbH is Vienna-based Vossloh Kiepe Ges. mbH in Austria that specializes in development, manufacture and installation of air conditioners for light rail and metro vehicles.

 

 

Drive Technology

In close contact with users, Vossloh Kiepe has developed a device series that can withstand rough daily operation.
Because of their modular mechanical design it is easy to adapt the devices to special electrical and mechanical vehicle requirements.

Control Units

Backed by wide-ranging practical experience and on the basis of close contacts with users, Vossloh Kiepe engineers design control units fitted for rough daily operation. Ergonomics and functional safety are the two most important properties of these Vossloh Kiepe controllers. Because of their modular design it is easy to adapt the devices to special electrical and mechanical requirements.

Safety Products

To meet the requirement for fast braking or emergency stops safely and reliably, Vossloh Kiepe offers its own group of devices. Emergency brake switches are part of the standard equipment in a mass transit vehicle. Thanks to their design, the devices from Vossloh Kiepe have high memory capacities. Easy and reliable operation as well as protection from vandalism have been combined in the best possible way.

 


Relays and Monitors

Vossloh Kiepe has its own family of devices for all the car and truck functions that cannot be performed by the mass-produced relays. Vossloh Kiepe designs and manufactures special-purpose devices for  situations in which standard products rapidly stop functioning.

Signalling Products

Vossloh Kiepe offers a selection of signal transmitters and warning bells used in a variety of applications and built to address the requirements of tough daily operation thanks to their high reliability and long life. The acoustic signals and their sounds have been selected for good yet non-irritating audibility.

Switches

Switching devices that are used daily in rail and road vehicles need to be robust and reliable. Such devices from Vossloh Kiepe have fulfilled this requirement for decades. Due to the extreme operating conditions in vehicles, designs are required that are carefully thought-out and have been tested in practical operation. The result is that Vossloh Kiepe switches have a long, low-maintenance life-span.

Current Collectors

Vossloh Kiepe’s current collectors (trolleys and pantographs) reliably route electricity from the overhead line to the vehicle.

The OSA current collectors are in use around the globe and are exposed to a broad variety of climatic and infrastructure conditions. They resist the most punishing mechanical loads.

Hybrid components

Vossloh Kiepe’s energy storage systems for hybrid vehicles play an important role in green, sustainable local transport systems. Vossloh Kiepe’s proprietary energy management system facilitates customer-specific interaction of the storage media based on double-layer high-duty capacitors with hybrid inverters specifically developed for this application.
