Knorr-Bremse will in future be able to offer customized on-board power supply solutions to its rail vehicle customers. The acquisition of Transtechnik and PCS Power Converter Solu-tions enables Knorr-Bremse to combine the two companies’ expertise in auxiliary power converters of different output categories and using various technologies.
