BayEnergy® flexible railway grounding cables are used as grounding connection resistant to short-circuit current, for potential equalisation between rails and other conductive parts not under voltage. They are especially used, where high flexibility and a low bending radius are required. The grounding cable is halogen-free, suitable for indoor and outdoor applications and for direct burying. The advanced and improved railway grounding cables are marked using two blue Bayka identification strips® on the outer sheath, and document Bayka quality "made in Germany".

BayEnergy® flexible railway grounding cables are approved by Germany's Federal Railway Office (EBA) and released for use in the area of operation of Deutsche Bahn AG.

The imprint "Eigentum DB" (Property of DB) or "Eigentum Verkehrsbetriebe" (Property of the Transport Services) is used as property notice and as theft protection. BayEnergy® aluminium railway grounding cables can be easily differentiated from copper grounding cables keeping potential thieves away.

Further properties:

  • Resistant against impact, vibration and shock loads
  • UV-resistant
  • Torsion-free laying can be easily checked
  • Easy laying and installation, handling with standard tools
