TracFeed® VLD - Version 2 - Voltage Limiting Device

In DC railway systems, dangerous touch voltages can arise
between the return circuit (running rail) and “earth”. Thus, the touch voltage must be limited in accordance with EN 50122-1/EN 50122-3. For this situation, the best option is a voltage limiting device, or VLD. This allows for shortcircuiting of the two potentials between the earth and the
return circuit in case of increased current and opening under load. This limits any resulting stray current issue.

TracFeed®TAS - First 27,5 kV solid insulated switchgear for railway applications

It has the environmental friendliness of modern air-insulated switchgears and the compact size and modularity of gas-insulated switchgears. It combines the advantages of both technologies. The broad range of equipment modules allows solutions for a wide variety of both simple and complex station layouts. TracFeed® TAS serves all one- to three-pole railway systems including urban, regional, intercity and high-speed transport up to 36 kV. Thus it benefits both operators and the environment.
