Train Lighting Electronics


The demands for train lighting electronics are far higher than for buses and the automotive industry. Our target service life for train lighting electronics is therefore 25 years, which is up to midlife refurbishment. Considerable experience and accumulated knowledge at every step in the design and verification processes are required to achieve this. As most of the major train manufacturers/operators have their own specifications, we at Teknoware have capitalized on in-depth knowledge of these specifications to design and supply suitable and reliable train lighting electronics.


All our train lighting electronics are based on standards IEC 60571 (Electronic equipment used on rolling stock) and EN50155 (Electronic equipment used on rolling stock) and their sub-standards such as IEC 62236 (Electromagnetic compatibility – Part 3-2: Rolling stock – Apparatus) and EN50121-3-2. We continuously follow the updates of these standards, and for this reason we perform EMC tests according to the latest standards versions.

To ensure neutrality during testing, Teknoware can provide type-testing reports based on tests performed on accredited laboratories. Type testing can be performed in our excellent in-house laborator.

We also provide train lighting electronics reliability calculations (MTBF values) based on the most commonly known basis as MIL-Handbook 217F. Other reliability calculations are available on request. FMEA analysis and LCC calculations belong to our everyday routines.

Teknoware pays special attention to the electrical safety of our products. That’s why we can give certificates of fulfilled standards EN50153 (Rolling stock - Protective provisions relating to electrical hazards) and EN50124-1 (Insulation coordination Part 1: Basic requirements - Clearances and creepage distances for all electrical and electronic equipment).

Our train lighting electronics for LED and fluorescent lighting cover a nominal voltage range from 24 VDC to 110 VDC and 230 VAC, along with several special models.
