Rail Overview

Features & Benefits

The HeavyPower Connectors are part of the Smiths Interconnect's Transformer range, a comprehensive series of high density, high power, heavy duty, modular connectors for all on-board power applications within the rail market. The Transformer's modularity enables customers to design their own solution by supplying the elementary components of the whole connector. It employs a unique do-it-yourself system based on the building block principle. The connectors are suitable for any applications requiring the transmission of very high currents such as power distribution, intercoaches and bogies.

The HeavyPower Series is available in 1 to 4 pole versions, supporting up to 300A per pole and a voltage rating of 3600V. The HeavyPower connector is offered with straight termination, that allows for the easy mounting on the roof or under the car's floor or with right angle termination to facilitate the mounting between two cars. As a variant, the HeavyPower Y Series is also proposed as a branch connector acting as a junction box.

  • High density modular solution;
  • High power, up to 300A 
  • Straight, angled and shunt termination styles;
  • Cable section size from 25mm² to 70mm² / 240mm²

Tortac® Technology

Tortac® Technology

Tortac® is the evolution of Hypertac® hyperboloid contact design dedicated to high density connectors. Boasting the same unique characteristics of the Hypertac hyperboloid contact on equal pin diameter the Tortac® socket features a smaller pitch that allows for a higher contact density. Learn More
