In March 2006 two PSN235 U2 converters that had been manufactured at production facilities at “Transconverter” were passed over to the Novocherkassk Locomotive Plant.

 PSN235 U2 converter is a component for future-proof 2ES4K class electric freight locomotive which is being manufactured to the initiative by CJSC “Transmashholding”. The converters that have been passed over are designed for powering the complex of auxiliary electric circuits of the electric locomotive, including the compressor’s asynchronous motors, motors of traction drive fans, excitation converters, power cubicles of control circuits, a microclimate system, sanitary and technical equipment, etc.

In the 3rd quarter of year 2006 certification tests for PSN235 U2 converter are scheduled to be finished.
