WTB (Wired Train Bus)/MVB (Multifunction Vehicle Bus) Cables

Application

The cables are used as connecting cables to transmit digital signals inside railway rolling stocks. The communication system in a locomotive uses a wire backed bus system to the TCN standard for control and instrumentation and for diagnostics. This bus system consists of the rail bus WTB (Wired Train Bus) and the road bus MVB (Multifunction Vehicle Bus) which are connected via redundant gateways.
