Beginning March 1, Westermo North America’s head office will be located in Elgin, Illinois, at 2531 Technology Drive. Westermo was previously located in Schaumburg, Illinois. The new location will give the company significantly more office and warehouse space.
“We’re excited about the new office and our growing company,” said Westermo Managing Director Mark Hendel. “The move to a bigger and better location is a great sign of Westermo’s success in North America.”
Westermo’s new location will also feature a laboratory for product testing and development. In addition, the office will feature a training area for customers and sales partners.
We follow up last year's successful engineering education with three new training sessions during the spring of 2013. The purpose of the course is to provide sales or support engineers with a greater depth of knowledge of networking and the Westermo product range. A Westermo Certified Engineer will be more effective at solving network problems and also be able to provide better presales support to customers.
Stadler Pankow GmbH, Berlin has chosen to use Viper EN50155 vehicle switches from Westermo in next generation FLIRT trains.
Westermo has been selected as a supplier of data communications equipment for Stadler Pankow's new FLIRT trains (Fast Light Innovative Regional Train). Deliveries of Viper switches with and without power over Ethernet will begin in early 2013. The switches will be used to create the communications network for the train passenger information system (PIS).
Stadler offers complete vehicle concepts, but unlike other manufacturers, Stadler can provide solutions specially tailored to customer needs. Quality and experience are crucial in the rolling stock industry where reliability and long service life are vital. Westermo’s lengthy and in deep experience as a supplier of on-board communication products to some of the world’s most demanding rail car manufacturers, public transport authorities, system integrators and railroads was a key decision criterion.
Other key reasons for Stadler to choose the Viper switches were the unique IP train concept. The Westermo IP train concept delivers a complete Ethernet switching and routing solution providing a robust network infrastructure for the creation of intelligent trains. All products are compact in design and have a wide power range (24-110 VDC) making them suitable for installation in rolling stock applications. The Viper series is manufactured to not only meet but exceed the EN50155 standard and to ensure extended service life and ultra-reliable operation.
