Rolling Stock Cables

Rolling stock cables form part of a vast product range encompassing all cables used by moving vehicles across railway, metro and underground rail infrastructures. These are used for power, control, communications, heating and ventilation inside the vehicles. The cables are required to have mechanical and thermal properties that protect them from the stresses of movement and temperature extremes. Externally fitted cables must also possess good ultra-violet (UV), ozone, mineral oil, and fuel oil resistance. Some Rolling Stock cables are smaller than many other railway cabling to reduce weight and aid installation, with varying thickness of insulation wall depending on application.
 
Eland Cables supplies cables covering the full range of rolling stock applications, including United Kingdom manufactured rolling stock cable approved for use across Network rail lines and London Underground (LUL) infrastructures.
