Propulsion & Control Equipment
The Heart, Muscles and Brain of the Train
Bombardier Transportation is the world’s leading provider of propulsion and control equipment for trains. Our solutions set the standard in reliability and sustainability.
Without propulsion and control equipment, no train can move. This equipment defines the vehicle’s performance in the end. Bombardier Transportation provides the complete chain of propulsion and control equipment for all types of trains. Our core product family is named MITRAC (Modular Integrated TRACtion system) and includes the following systems:
Propulsion Converters: Transform power from any energy source or diesel engines (traction and auxiliary converters)
Traction Drives: Enable traction effort to the wheel
Electronics: Managing all kinds of communication in a train as well as controlling the propulsion, on-board information and wayside systems
