HUBER+SUHNER Launches Innovative Railway Antenna


The SENCITY Rail Multi is getting launched worldwide by HUBER+SUHNER, leading manufacturer of components and systems for optical and electrical connectivity. The unique roof-top antenna meets the special requirements of rail applications that enables a fully connected fleet, leading to improved customer satisfaction for Train Operating Companies (TOC’s).

The antenna was designed to improve rail connectivity and drive productivity, aiding the transition to a digital railway, able to deliver connected services to passenger such as Wi-FI, Real Time Passenger Information and live seat reservations. It can also benefit Train-to-Ground solutions for rail employees, such as on-board ticketing and remote train control management.

“Train operators will benefit in many ways from using the SENCITY Rail Multi. Better connectivity to digital services will increase customer satisfaction, and more passengers will travel more miles by rail than ever before,” said Cornel Huber, Market Manager Industry and Transport in the Radio Frequency Division of HUBER+SUHNER. “Digitalization opens up new business areas for railway companies. Technically speaking, the new universal antenna is suitable for all types of fleets.”

The SENCITY Rail Multi has a special high current protection and operates within a temperature range of -55 to +85°C. In the case of contact with the overhead line in the event of a fault, the high current protection guarantees electrical protection. Designed as a multi-MIMO antenna, it supports the future 5G mobile radio standard, along with all other wireless applications. Equipped with 13 antenna elements, the SENCITY Rail Multi covers a frequency range from 698 MHz to 6 GHz. The compact housing has the same mounting dimensions as conventional existing rooftop antennas, making the upgrade quick and easy.

HUBER+SUHNER will be showcasing the SENCITY Rail Multi antenna among other technology at InnoTrans, booth 207 in hall 2.2, at the Messe Berlin, between the 18th and the 21st of September.

HUBER+SUHNER develops and produces components and system solutions for electrical and optical connectivity. It serves customers in the three markets of communication, transportation, and industrial with cables, connectors, and systems developed for the three core technologies of radio frequency, fiber optics and low frequency.
