THE ET403, A NEW DB HIGH-SPEED ELECTRIC MULTIPLE-UNIT CONSIST FOR 200 KM/H

Development towards a 200-km/h upward Inter-City electrified network incorporating some additional 650-route-km has led to the designing of a prototype 200-km/h train based on four-car fully-motored sets to run in multiple for lengthening by individual cars as traffic requires while retaining the full designed-performance due to the traction automony of all vehicles. Thyristor-chopper techniques applied and pantograph on end-cars only, adopted and linked by h.t. conductor along the vehicle roofs. Fully-integrated rheostatic and air braking giving 1,650-m service-stop distance from 200 km/h while emergency magnetic rail-braking also fitted.
