The NW-25100 passenger car electrical package is designed to be a fairly small, yet complete, power control center for use on coaches and other cars with a simple electrical demand and conversion to operation at 480 volt, three phase power is desired.

This unit is available in several size patterns. The unit shown at left was produced in 2011 to suit the needs of a business car on a major North American freight railroad company. It is 18 inches wide, by 74 inches tall, by 8 inches deep from the back of the panel to the top of the highest control knob, when the control panel is closed. Space does needs to be provided for opening the hinged control panel cover for installation and maintenance, but the system does fit very well in the depth provided by most existing heritage electrical lockers, even small spaces such as the interior control locker of RDCs. Pictured at above center is the control system used in some fairly recent models, while at right is the control system as it existed in much earlier models. These both illustrate the clearance required to open the control panel lid. The NW-25100 has a long record of providing exactly what most heritage passenger car conversions need, and the features and different styles available have continued to evolve to suit new component availability, desired features from our customers, and a desire to continually improve our products.

At below right, a model from 1998 is shown. The features of the NW-25100 are adjusted to suit the particular needs of cars and the various desires of their owners, meaning that many different slight variations have been produced over the years. These are only a few examples.

We also have a two-zone version NW-25200 available, for dome cars or other situations where two control zones are desirable.

The NW-25100 may also be incorporated into custom control panels and complete locker packages of various types. See our Custom Locker Packages for some examples of custom packages that use these as part of a larger custom package, as well as other custom electrical packages for railroad passenger cars.
