Converters for Trams

KONČAR design, manufacture and maintain electronic equipment for electric tramcars. KONČAR converters supply the main and auxiliary drives of trams.

They also offer the modernisation of the tramcars which includes integration of new main drive and auxiliary drive converters in the existing tramway vehicles. The result is a complete new and modernised vehicle which is characterised by high functionality and reliability with reduced maintenance costs.

KONČAR's range of converters for trams includes: KONTRAC GP 170 DC, KONTRAC PN 35 DC and KONTRAC PN 25 DC.  

 

Propulsion Converter for Trams - KONTRAC GP 170 DC

KONTRAC GP 170 DC Converter

KONTRAC GP 170 DC converts 600VDC or 750VDC line voltage into propulsion power to control and drive asynchronous traction motors on tram vehicles. The converter supplies two asynchronous traction motors connected in parallel. The electrical motor drive operates in two modes: traction mode and braking mode.
