An architecture highly flexible, modular and easily customizable
The Hitachi Rail metro platform is based on an architecture highly flexible, modular and easily customizable with a level of standardization higher than 50-60%, based on “make” portfolio components and “buy” systems defined and recognizable as standard “building blocks” of the platform.
Four the technological key areas that characterize the platform:
- Body structure in aluminum or stainless steel, modular and flexible configurable in size with integrated plug-in cab module;
- Light alloy furniture with layout and design easily customizable with integrated LED lighting and modular assembly solutions;
- Propulsion based on single or double inverter per pair of bimotor bogie for power supply at 750V, 1500V, 25 kV;
- Train control and supervision (TCMS distributed) on Ethernet bus, integrated with PIS system (acting as security and energy management) and MVB bus dedicated to the traction / braking functions. Provision to the functions of fleet management.
