Pacific National NR Locomotives
Product: Single Phase Inverters, DCformers, DC:DC Converters
The NR Class locomotives are used for freight and long-distance passenger services on main lines throughout Australia. For the driver’s cab, single phase inverters are used to provide 240 Vac 50 Hz power which can be used for standard appliances such as a kettle, hotplate, and a typical microwave oven. This provides the crew with creature comforts on long journeys. The roof-mounted air-conditioning system contains a DCformer unit which converts the incoming 74Vdc to 600Vdc which is used by the air-conditioning inverters and control system. A DC-DC converter is installed in the braking control system.
