Bevel gear SK-type with two stages, axle mounted

Longitudinal drive

The electric motor or turbo transmission is located outside the bogie beneath the railcar body. The motor's shaft is at a right angle to the wheelset's shaft. A cardan shaft transmits power to the bevel gear stage. The bevel gears transmit power at an angle of 90°. The cardan shaft compensates for the relative motion between the final drive and electric motor or turbo transmission.

Bevel gear KE-type with one stage, axle mounted

Longitudinal drive

The electric motor or turbo transmission is located outside the bogie beneath the railcar body. The motor's shaft is at a right angle to the wheelset's shaft. A cardan shaft transmits power to the bevel gear stage. The bevel gears transmit power at an angle of 90°. The cardan shaft compensates for the relative motion between the final drive and electric motor or turbo transmission.

Helical gear SZ-type with two stages, axle mounted

Transversal drive

The motor is located in the bogie. The motor's shaft is parallel to the wheelset's shaft. A bow-tooth coupling transmits power to the helical gears of the helical gear stage. This stage compensates for the relative motion between the bogie and the wheelset's shaft.

Helical gears for transversal drivearrangement fully suspended SZH-type

Transversal drive

The motor is located in the bogie. It is connected to the helical gear stage by a diaphragm coupling. The motor's shaft is parallel to the wheelset's shaft. The drive's output gear is mounted on a quill shaft. This gear connects to the wheelset by means of a 2-level wedge packet coupling. This provides a fully sprung arrangement.
