Diesel and electric locomotives pulling vacuum-braked trains, diesel multiple-unit trains with vacuum brakes, and diesel or electric multiple-unit trains with air brakes all use different types of rolling stock equipment.
A receiver that responds to the magnetic flux from the track inductors is located on the underside of the locomotive or other vehicle.
It is made up of two soft-iron poles and a permanent-magnet armature that is pivotal in the center. When the armature moves because of the interaction between the south and north poles of the inductors, a flexible beryllium–copper contact strip on the armature serves as a single-pole changeover switch.
In opposition to the vibration of the vehicle, its intrinsic magnetism keeps it in one of the two places.
The driver activates a coil wrapped around one of the poles when recognizing a warning signal, the permanent inductor’s flux causes the armature to move from its normal position, which is then restored by the magnetic field.
If the signal was clear, the north pole of the now-energized electro-inductor will automatically restore the receiver armature after it has been thrown by the permanent inductor’s south pole, without the need for the driver to acknowledge it.
The Egypt Rolling Stock market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
With the goal of enhancing rolling stock on all rail segments in Egypt, the Spanish train manufacturer Talgo and the Arab Organization for Industrialization (AOI) have signed a framework agreement.
In accordance with the agreement, the Spanish train builder will work with Semaf, the AOI subsidiary that manufactures railway equipment, to investigate possibilities for collaborative manufacturing of rolling stock.
For a variety of operational segments, including long-distance train services, the partners will produce rolling stock.
The most recent arrangement saw Talgo receive a million of contract from Egyptian National Railways (ENR) for six intercity train sets after an open competitive process.
The contract calls for the supply of six Talgo train sets, each of which includes 14 passenger cars, a technical car or power car, and a diesel-electric locomotive.
Additionally, it provides essential car maintenance for a minimum of several years. The trains will be used to provide services on the primary line in the nation, which connects Alexandria, Cairo, the capital of Egypt, and Aswan in the south.
Talgo recently put into service extremely fast trains on the Haramain railway in Saudi Arabia. The 450km-long railway is anticipated to carry millions of passengers annually.
The route will also connect to a brand-new terminal at the airport in Jeddah, which serves as the major entryway for Hajj pilgrims.
