RAILWAY

Even though you may not actually see the products of the Furukawa Electric Group, they are used in many familiar places.

Furukawa’s “Here and There” is a series featuring astonishing stories about these products. Told with a focus on different scenes and topics, it describes how products are used in daily living. This issue features railways, where you are certain to find Furukawa products “Here and There”.

Green Trough

Green Trough is a covered protective duct made of recycled resin, and is used for burying cables near the surface of land alongside railways. Its weight is only one-quarter that of concrete ducts, enabling ducts to be transported manually and reducing the construction period. In addition, ducts made of recycled plastics are eco-friendly and offer excellent strength, flame retarding properties, and workability.

Power Kicker

Many trains are equipped with a heat sink (power kicker) for cooling power transistors that control the electric voltage and frequency. With the N700 rolling stocks of the Tokaido Shinkansen lines, there are no electric fans. Instead, our ultra high-performance power kicker [PK-S] which holds the leading market share is being used. It is capable of cooling high-power transistors with the air flow generated during operation. The power kicker is also being used high-speed trains in China and other countries.
