    Product Information

    Details

    The magnetic track brake (MTB) is an additional brake acting directly on the rail and its operation is thus independent of rail/wheel adhesion. Its action is based on the applied magnetic force. The force applied is produced by the electromagnetic effect or by a permanent magnet. Where required, the MTB is fitted to vehicle bogies in order to supplement the air brake. The obligatory requirements of this leaflet apply to this rolling stock only. Appendix A shows as an example a diagrammatic arrangement for the MTB as fitted to a bogie.
