SMARTconverter for long-dstance trains
The SMARTconverter is also designed for cross-border long-distance passenger trains. The multi-voltage auxiliary power converter with medium-frequency galvanic separation is in service throughout Europe. It is highly reliable since it has no electromechanical change of configuration.
For instance, SMA Railway Technology GmbH, today operating under the Name SMART Railway, delivered multi-voltage auxiliary power converters to Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) for the refurbishment of the EuroCity passenger cars. Between 2009 and 2014, a total of 240 passenger cars were equipped with SMARTconverters.
