Transportation Newsletter
Dear Transportation Customer,

The global population is expected to reach 9.8 billion by 2050 – that is two billion people more than the world’s current population. As cities grow, the manufacturers of rail passenger, freight trains and rail infrastructure equipment need to develop more innovative and cost effective ways of increasing the capacity of their rolling stock whilst maintaining reliable, safe and secure networks. Selecting the right manufacturers and distributors that can support these future demands will be critical in ensuring both, innovative solutions and a reliable equipment supply chain. TTI is supporting this need by partnering with key manufacturers to stock their newest products and support the availability of their standard products globally.
Connector manufacturers such as TE Connectivity are expanding their portfolio to include rail M12 connectors, heat shrink tubing and identification products that meet rail fire and safety specifications. Molex is now also offering the flexibility of custom D-Sub designs for control equipment applications. Passive components suppliers are also developing new innovative solutions such as gas discharge tubes from Littelfuse, GBS wirewound resistors from Vishay and aluminium electrolytic capacitors from KEMET. TTI is likewise investing in new technology such as Rail approved DC / DC converters from Murata and Artesyn to enable customers to develop more efficient power supplies. In addition, we have expanded our stock of the popular Smiths Interconnect REP Series and ITT Cannon Trident Series to support customers’ need for a reliable supply chain.
