BELGIAN FOUR-CAR CHOPPER SETS START TRIALS

The first of a series of chopper-controlled four-car electric multiple-unit trains for service in Belgium has been delivered. Each unit has two driving trailer cars and two intermediate coaches motored on all eight axles. Bodies are of low-carbon steel. Power at 3 kV dc is fed to the traction motors through a control consisting of two chopper groups, each of which feeds four motors in series/parallel.
