BORDLINE® BC for all rail applications

The BORDLINE® BC battery charger is a compact, lightweight unit designed to charge the train batteries and supply DC loads.

The new highly compact battery charger of the series BORDLINE BC complements ABB's large stand-alone auxiliary converter and battery charger product family and is compatible with all types of train batteries. BORDLINE BC employs ABB's well proven modular platform design incorporating silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductors. This translates into dramatically reduced size, weight, cooling requirements and increased system efficiency, all critical factors for rail operators.
