Leroy-Somer and Kato Engineering locomotive traction alternators are designed for new or rebuilt locomotives used in switchyard, rail grinding, and short road-haul applications. Our qualified engineering teams have extensive experience in designing robust and efficient alternators specifically for rail. Kato and Leroy-Somer locomotive alternators are usually placed in one of two configurations:
Units with this design are ideal for locomotives where space and weight are of primary concern.
Rugged construction and superior insulation ensure our generators can handle bumpy, grimy conditions as well as the thermal cycling caused by the constant acceleration and deceleration locomotives must endure.
