Hypertac has recently become a member of the Alstom Transport Leading Partners programme (LP150). The company will work with global customers in all phases of the product life cycle from the initial design phase through production to after-sales support.

The joint innovation aspect of the programme will benefit both partners. The membership is the result of a one-year development programme for a new type of electric connector, which is an environmentally sealed rectangular plastic REP connector. This new generation of connector allows a quick and secure connection of any type of electrical equipment even in the harshest environments. The connector is designed to be compliant with fire and smoke standards and has been qualified by the French Railways (SNCF) and Metro operators (RATP). It allows the connector specialist access to new business opportunities with Alstom Transport as it can potentially be used on all of their rolling stock lines.
