TYPE B'B'B'B' CLASS BE 8/8 DOUBLE-ARTICULATED TRAMS NO. 1 TO 16 OF THE CITY OF BERN TRANSPORT AUTHORITY

The electric equipment for a series of double-articulated trams with four single-motor bogies is described in detail. The conventional switchgear equipment (electro-pneumatic contactors) is controlled through traction electronics. This permits constant acceleration or deceleration during starting and braking and also constant speed downhill running. The electrical equipment was designed to facilitate operation with trailers. As a result, the carrying capacity can be adapted to peak period demands.
