era-transceiver® - Data pulses with no wear

era-contact_era-transceiver english

The era-transceiver® serves as an interface for high-speed data transmission between rail vehicle transitions. Since the era-transceiver® functions as an active component, it offers a signal refresh in the network. As is a unique contactless system for high-speed data transmission with 100 percent galvanic isolation, which eliminates mechanical wear on the contact itself.

Therefore, our customers benefit from a longer service life and cost savings over the entire product LifeCycle.

Transmission principle of the era-transceiver®

The incoming electrical Ethernet signal is con-verted into an optical signal. The optical signal is received on the opposite side and is converted back into an electrical signal.

This involves correcting the level and timing (data clock recovery). Galvanic isolation is achieved using the interface :
