Things to know about Train Technology

Technical key data and specifications of the new train series at a glance.

From actuation to pulling force – here are the technical facts about the new train generation

A total of 382 new trains will be built:

  • 42 wagons of series 483 (quarter-trains), this corresponds to 10% of the new wagons
  • 340 wagons of series 484 (half-trains), this corresponds to 90% of the new wagons

Series 483: Quarter-Train - fully walkable 2 wagon carriage unit

Production series 483: Quarter Train - walkable 2 wagon carriage unit

Series 484: Half-Train - fully walkable 4 wagon carriage unit

Series 484: Half-Train - fully walkable 4 wagon carriage unit

More active redundancy in actuator

Even within the quarter-trains, all operation-relevant components are provided twice. This means that the other car of the quarter-train remains fully powered in the event of a service disruption.

Each quarter-train is equipped with a magnetic rail brake, each half-train operates with two magnetic rail brakes.This ensures safe braking, even in unfavorable weather conditions, without having to implement any restrictions (such as reducing speed).
