era-contact (formerly FABEG) is the worldwide technology and market leader for automatic electrical couplings and hand plugs in the rail sector. As well as the transmission of power and control signals we are the only company also offering solutions for the transmission of Ethernet and fast Ethernet signals between Trains.

Since the 1980s we have been involved in research in the area of reliable transmission of signals at high data speeds in rough environments and in the development of alternative transmission media for this purpose – and this with outstanding success: We – era-contact – are the only coupling supplier in the whole world that can transmit high data rates reliably via electric couplings.
