Supporting local content

For more than 30 years Knorr-Bremse has consistently focused on local value creation. With the support of the Group PowerTech helps customers enter new markets where local content is a requirement.

High system integrability

Rail vehicle systems purchased from Knorr-Bremse come with their own power supply if required. Such precisely matched solutions not only benefit rail vehicle builders but also operators when they upgrade their fleets.

For converters in the area of industry and energy, PowerTech also acts as a system-partner in various markets. Hence we offer our customers the combination of components that fit together at the highest technical level to form a perfectly functioning, efficient system. Since every product requires expert know-how, which is based on each other, we can develop integrated solutions that are not only reliable, but also future-proof.

Trend-setting features

By using medium-frequency technologies we have created particularly lightweight and compact power converters for rail vehicles. The ability to bridge temporary power outages on local mass transit systems ensures continuity of the vehicle’s power supply.

Our customers can benefit from our long-term experience in other areas as well. High reliability and robust design are the key features of our converters for industry, research and renewable energies. With our specific know-how we are making a valuable contribution to clean and intelligent energy.
