Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Locomotive systems run at 64 VDC. The 74Volts is there when the engine
is running jst like on a car where the 12 volt battery is actually being
charged a little higher, around 15 or 16 volts. Enough on that though.
Most of our battery systems consist of two 32 volt batteries connected in series and most of our starters are 32volts also connected in series except for a few locomotives acquired through mergers which have two 64 volt starters hooked in parallel.
As far as running things in the cab. Most of our cabs have what looks like a standard 110 volt outlet in them for running test equpment or whatever. There is 64 volts dc at these outlets and we have plugged regular 110 volt computer power slupplies into them for running laptops with no problems although I would not say that this would work on every one and I would be a little afraid to try it on one of my own computers for fear of burning something up.
