Type of unit
A 250 km/h self-propelled, dual voltage electric train unit fitted with a variable gauge system
Unit made up of 4 cars MCT-MIT-MIP-MCP, which can be extended up to 8 cars by adding an additional 2 intermediate MIF cars. Two electric motors per motor car, located in the carbody and controlled by IGBTs, which operates one of the axles of each bogie via a cardan joint. A regenerative electric brake is also supplied, which is complemented with pneumatically operated disc brakes with a wheel slide protection system.
One traction inverter per car which operates on the two carbody motors. There are three auxiliary converters per train and two of these are in operation with the third only coming into operation should one of the other two fail.
Modern and functional interior distribution, with four WCs per unit: 1 standard WCS in the MC1, MI1 and MC2 cars and a WC adapted for PMRs in the MI2 car. Fixed seats. Access doors in the centre of the cars with two semi-saloons to the left and right of the central vestibules.

Bogies:
Axles for a track gauge, a motor axle and a trailer axle per bogie.
Monobloc non-alloyed steel wheels, with low carbon content and with tempered flange surface.
Primary suspension by means of coil springs and secondary, pneumatic suspension.

Cosmos System
STANDARD IEC 61375-1, also known as TCN (Train Communication Network), is a regulation developed by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commitee) in cooperation with the UIC. Since its very origin, CAF has been an active member of the international group for the development of the TCN, and it is the first and only Spanish company to develop such a system.Caf has incorporated this system to the new series of RENFE (CIVIA) commuter trains.What does the TCN do? The TCN standard's goal is to develop a communication network, customized to the railway environment, guaranteeing interoperatibility at two levels:· On the one hand, at the train-borne equipment level. The TCN thoroughly specifies a communication protocol for the vehicle's bus. This protocol allows the easy and uniform access to all the information on the train and turns the integration of new equipment and control system functionalities into practically plug-and-play. All electronic equipment installed in the train operates under a single standard network, simplifying information transmission. In other words, all the equipment “speaks” the same language. This unique network allows the information exchange and the train's functioning to be flexible and open to the incorporation of new functionalities and technologies such as GSP, GSM and the Internet. In addition to this, the use of the TCN significantly simplifies qualified personnel training and train fine-tuning and maintenance. · Also, at the train level, the TCN communication standard allows the vehicle's bus to automatically couple two or more units. Without any external assistance, the system reconfigures itself, incorporating the vehicle's equipment or unit connected to the network.

CAF 350 kms. hours ........ Future "S105”?

It seems that CAF is working on a new high-speed train; within around 350 kms. hours, but all that is known is a little generic design

Certainly not, Talgo with the Avril will create a wider and high-capacity train, and CAF are working with a seemingly normal train

Maybe this thread should be rename Spanish trains manufacturing and technology

The new control center for ONCF (Morocco) builded by Adif and Indra for 30 millions euro. The same which is on HSL in Spain. The same system could be use for moroccan HSL Tanger-Kenitra.

CAF is manufacturing these trains here in Brazil for the Sao Paulo metro, the so-called 7000 series for CPTM and the G Fleet for the Metro:

Please visit the Sao Paulo metro thread for much more!

7000:


G Fleet:



Some of the first units of the 7000 were imported from Spain, but all others are being manufactured here.


The old series 2000 of CPTM are also CAFs, made in Spain and imported in 1999, they run as the Eastern Express on line 11:

Thanks for the pics! that factory in Hortolandia is huge and has a lot of potential, I expect only the best from you guys and hope to see the first HST in Southamerica coming out of this production line.
