Title (EN) CONTACTLESS DATA COMMUNICATIONS COUPLING
(FR) COUPLAGE POUR UNE COMMUNICATION DE DONNEES SANS CONTACT
Abstract:
(EN) The exemplary embodiments of the present invention provide a high-speed contactless data coupling that is adaptable to use with mechanical rail car couplers. The exemplary embodiments utilize a primarily magnetic field coupling to communicate either baseband data or RF signals through a pair of signal coupling units that do not need to contact either other, which can be easily housed in two heads attached to each of two mechanical rail car couplers.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un couplage de données sans contact à grande vitesse qui peut être adapté pour être utilisé avec des attelages mécaniques de wagons de chemin de fer. Selon les modes de réalisation décrits, un couplage de champ principalement magnétique est utilisé pour communiquer soit des données de bande de base, soit des signaux RF par une paire d'unités de couplage de signaux qui n'ont pas besoin d'être en contact l'une avec l'autre et qui peuvent être aisément logées dans deux têtes attachées à chacun des attelages mécaniques de wagon de chemin de fer.
