The light Diesel Railcar that will be supplied to the Swedish Railway is of the bogie type, with automatic transmission.
Each railcar is powered by two FIAT 8217.12.150, 165 KW (UIC nominal) horizontal engines, which are mass-produced for road vehicle traction (trucks and buses).
Railcars are suitable for coupling with up to 6 units of the same type, so that from any one cab a single driver may control 12 traction engines.
The bogies are designed to provide passengers with notably high riding confort even at elevated train speeds.
Interior arrangements are as follows:
Passenger compartment, 76 seats
Access to cars is gained through four electropneumatically controlled entry doors (two on each side).
Passenger compartment heating is provided by radiating convectors through which flows water re-circulated from the Diesels and from two automatically controlled, gasoil-fired boilers.
The body can withstand compression up to 150 tons.
Heat insulation is suitable for -40°C temperatures.
Electrical system services supply is 24 V d.c.
Continuous, emergency compressed air braking system.
