IDC/pluggable technologies for railway

The fastest connection technology for rolling stock

The ADO system® technology based on insulation displacement (IDC) technology offers significant productivity savings as well as secure and reliable connection in case of vibration and shock. Combined with the pluggable technology, it increases the productivity thanks to pre-produced plugs harnesses.

Main benefits

  • Reliable in harsh conditions thanks to vibration and corrosion proof terminal
  • Continuous operation guaranteed for rolling stock
  • Cost effective solution providing 80% wiring time saving compared to traditional technologies
  • Improved installation efficiency through a simplified and secured connection process
  • Usable in severe applications like tunnels thanks to our plastic material complying with the toughest flammability rating of the market

Main features

  • Connecting capacity from 1.5 to 4 mm² (16 to 12 AWG) for control applications
  • No conductor preparation, reduced fatigue
  • 2 seconds to wire thanks to the automatic tool
  • Tool locked during the connection process
  • Up to 2 conductors per IDC clamp
