RailTuff™ Railway Approved Ethernet Data Cables

Belden RailTuff Railway Ethernet Data Cables offer enhanced system performance and a greater passenger travel experience. Belden has a complete portfolio of data communication cables in the railway transportation environment, covering from 100 Mb/s, to 1 Gb/s and now also 10 Gb/s.

  • Future Proof
    - Up to 10Gb/s transmission performance (BE43802)
  • Safety
    - Maximum operating temperatures on the market: 90°C, exceeding the 85°C short term temp. requirement in Class TX of the EN 50155 railway standard (BE43802)
  • Efficiency
    - Operational efficiency with 19-strand copper conductors (BE43802)
    - Small bend radius allows for easy and risk free installation within limited spaces
  • Full Product Range
    - Complete portfolio of data communication cables in the railway transportation environment: 100Mb/s, 1Gb/s, 10Gb/s bandwidth

The RailTuff range is designed for the transmission of data and signals using Ethernet technology, for on-board applications; effectively future proofing the on board Ethernet backbone and enabling compliance with the new series of IEC standards; IEC EN 61375 “Train Communication Network (TCN)” and IEC EN 62580 “On-board Multimedia and Telematic Subsystems for Railways”.

Modern railway rolling stock needs to support an increasingly sophisticated array of services such as

  • Video Surveillance/CCTV,
  • Driver and Crew Orientated Services (e.g. Driver Advisory Systems and Electronic Ticketing),
  • Passenger Orientated Services (e.g. Seat Reservation Systems and Internet access) and
  • Train Operator/Maintainer Orientated Services (e.g. remote monitoring and fuel management).

Belden BE43802 is the only Cat 7 Railway approved data patch cable that exceeds the 85°C short term temperature requirement in Class TX of the EN 50155:2007 Railway applications standard. This means that the cable has almost no limitations when it comes to on board installation locations throughout the train. The 19-strand copper conductors provide added flexibility as well as flex life, and the resulting small bend radius allows for easy and risk free installation within limited spaces and bulkheads without any effect on signal transmission.

  • CAT 7 10Gb/s transmission performance
  • International railway standards approval: EN 45545-2 and ISO/IEC 11801, EN 50155, EN 50155:2007, DIN 5510-2, IEC 61156-6
  • Max operating temperature of 90°C
  • Highly stranded copper conductor (AWG 24/19)
  • High screen coverage + Belden Beldfoil
  • Small bending radius
  • Robust design
