The ICE 3 train

Application:

Active transversal centering in the ICE 3

Product:

TLI

Our TLI non-contacting position transducers are mounted directly in the drive cylinder to ensure active transversal centering in the fast high-comfort trains being used by our customer since 1999.

The centrifugal forces arising in curves act on the superstructure as transversal acceleration, pushing it from its spring-centered middle position. When the train has to travel through curves at high speed, the transversal acceleration leads to complete deflection, which results in unpleasant shocks that significantly affect the comfort. And at high speeds even safety may be affected.

The active transversal centering holds the superstructure in the most suitable middle position. Thus it is possible to increase the travel speed and, thereby, shorten travel times while maintaining a constant standard of comfort.
