For operation in mobile environments, electronic systems require a physical construction capable of withstanding extreme conditions in harsh environments. nVent SCHROFF cabinets, cases and subracks are therefore designed to protect the electronics they house with high levels of mechanical stability and resistance to shock and vibration, according to EN 50155, EN 61373, EN 45545, CENELEC and AREMA.
Robust rack solutions with compact packaging. The relentless push to better signaling, modern LTE-R and 5G-M communications and enhanced passenger experience is applicable for new build as well as legacy rolling stock assets. nVent SCHROFF supports with dedicated on-board enclosures for electronics protection.
MODERNIZING ROLLING STOCK & RETROFITTING
Upgrading, adding new electronics & Maximizing limited space in on-board railway applications.
The rail industry is well established and, as a result, there is legacy infrastructure in place along with a need to upgrade existing rolling stock with new technology to enable predictive maintenance, safety initiatives, and next generation 4G-LTE and 5G communications to enhance customer experience and enable better signaling capabilities.
Modernizing aging equipment for rolling stock presents unique challenges such as
- Installing more electronics in onboard locations where space is at a premium
- Maximizing space while creating passenger and operator friendly interiors
- Adding new electronic systems also introduces a higher complexity electromagnetically
Equipped for Mobile Environments
nVent SCHROFF on-board enclosures are are flexible in dimension and enable design engineers to make the best use of the available space. Outside of the standard solutions, custom solutions are available to better meet application requirements with fast development time, thanks to the variety of modular platform concepts.

Case Studies & Reference Projects
Railway Signaling & Onboard Systems
From automated traffic control systems to on-board passenger WiFi services, rail networks are implementing powerful new systems to achieve greater safety, reliability, and improve the experience of riders and operators.
On Board Rack
The nVent SCHROFF On Board Rack is the ideal solution to install 19" (84 TE) and 36 TE electronics on trains. It's used where a lightweight solution for a secure, durable and reliable mounting is required, e.g. underneath a seat.
