Positive train control and other smart technologies are transforming how the rail industry operates. All of these systems require reliable power for seamless and continuous operation, as well as for the guaranteed safety of trains and travelers.
Millions of people rely on railroads to efficiently travel from place to place. It’s no secret the tracks these trains run on are located in harsh environments near high power lines and other man-made contributors to poor power quality. Since the tracks themselves act as conductors for lightning events, surge protection proves to be a vital contributor to the reliable operation of trains.
