Windscreen Wiper and Wash Systems

Whether pneumatically or electrically powered, Knorr-Bremse windscreen wiper and wash systems cover the whole spectrum of rail vehicles: whether tramway, metro, locomotive or high-speed trains.

Windscreen Wiper

The product portfolio ranges from systems for segmental or parallel wipe areas to applications with overlapping wiped areas with electronically synchronized wiper drive units. Of course, all of them are exclusively equipped with components tried and tested by Knorr-Bremse.

The systems are characterized by their extremely long lifespan and reliability, resulting in optimized life-cycle costs. This is especially beneficial for the operator. Other advantages are the pre-assembled drive units which considerably reduce the vehicle manufacturer’s installation costs.

Functions (optional):

  • Adjustable wiping speed
  • Variable interval times
  • Washing with simultaneous wiping
  • Automatic on/off switching via rain sensor
  • Electronic synchronization of two drive units
  • Middle parking position, train wash setting
