Digital Automatic Coupling
Automatic couplings in rail freight traffic
Now, with the introduction of digital automatic couplers, Europe not only has the chance to become a global pioneer, but can also increase the efficiency, reliability and competitiveness of rail freight in Europe and promote growth.
In addition to the automatic connection of air, power and data lines, remote uncoupling could also be possible in the future. The DAK thus forms the basis for the digitalisation and automation of railway operational
The data link between locomotive and freight wagon creates a platform for new services and networking of the entire logistics chain.Potentials also arise in the areas of occupational safety, personnel recruitment, energy savings with efficiency increases, as well as the development of new market segments.
