Scharfenberg Semi-Permanent Couplers

Scharfenberg semi-permanent couplers provide secure and safe connections within a trainset. Since coupling and uncoupling do not take place during normal operation, automatic operation is not necessary. Semi-permanent couplers can be equipped with impact-absorbing elements as well as with electrical and pneumatic couplings.

 

Key benefits:

  • Rigid, backlash-free connection
  • Can connect pneumatic and electric lines
  • May also be used as an anti-climbing guard
  • Damps vehicle motion along the longitudinal axis
  • Optionally available with a support for the transition between coaches
