TURNERSVILLE, N.J. — Protran Technology, a Harso Rail company, is working with CDM Electronics, a distributor of electronic connectors and cables for the radio industry to discuss a case study related to each of the company’s roles in a new collision avoidance system being debuted by Protran.

The study will talk about how CDM’s off-the-shelf coax jumper cables meet the criteria of Protran’s design and reliability for its new safety system. According to a CDM news release, CDM conducted lengthy evaluations to make sure its coax connecting cables met the strict electrical and mechanical specifications needed for the rail maintenance environment. The company was able to produce a coaxial cable that was resistant to vibrations and tension.

The new vehicle-mounted collision avoidance system is designed to keep track maintenance workers alert when working an area where there are other track machines and people nearby.

The two companies will further discuss the collaboration during the upcoming 2016 Railway Systems Suppliers 56th annual exhibition in Grapevine, Texas on June 28 to 30.
