Aerco stocks a wide range of products for the transportation industry including LED lighting and filters for military vehicles from Oxley, power connectors for hybrid vehicles from Hypertac and a range of Honeywell limit switches and premium basic switches used in all types of mass-transit, agricultural and industrial vehicles.
The company also supplies a wide range of products from world-class suppliers designed specifically for the rail industry that include: cable and wire, circuit breakers, connectors, equipment fans, lighting products, relays, sensors, solenoids and switches suitable for use in vehicles, rolling stock, trackside equipment, signalling and communication and information systems.
Serving principal manufacturers, subcontractors and maintenance and repair operators, a large proportion of Aerco’s work in the rail and mass-transit markets is in the field of interconnect. As train speeds increase, connectors are subjected to severe stress, vibration, shock and corrosion and the application calls for connectors such as the Mil-C 5015 reverse bayonet, positive-lock connectors like the ABCIRH, ABCIRP and ABMP ranges from AB Connectors, now universally accepted in the industry and IRIS, NFF 61030 and LUL approved. These connectors accommodate the full range of power and signalling requirements for rolling stock, signalling and trackside infrastructure. In addition, the introduction of Quadrax, co-ax, twinax and tri-ax contacts means they now provide for high speed Ethernet and data transmission for speeds of up to 1000 BASE-T on Cat 5e.
Connectors for in-train communication, entertainment and information systems have to be small and light and modern plastic shells are often used. Aerco supplies the Hypertac REP range of small rectangular plastic connectors that ensure quick and secure connection and comply with key rail approvals NFF16-101/2 for low smoke and fire hazard and EN61-373 for vibration resistance. M12 connectors are also used and Aerco provides the Provertha range of Profinet and Ethernet connectors that provide 360° EMI/RFI shielding, IP67 protection and fault-free data transmission.
Aerco also supplies design support and prototyping services, a component sourcing and obsolescence service and has years of experience in supplying vendor reduction programmes.
As a Link-Up approved supplier, Aerco makes an on-going commitment to the rail and mass transit industry that is demanding but represents a growing, vibrant market where the willingness to invest can be highly rewarding.
