Traction Power

Power for the motor of the trains is provided via the track. In order to allow more than one train to run at a track segment - in the same or opposite direction - speed and direction control will be managed by each individual train (ref. OBU Hardware). Power will be provided as follows:

  • Traction power at fixed DC voltage (12V - 14V)
  • Defined polarity: In driving direction up right rail is positive

This approach also allows for power to lighting in the trains.
