The general type name given by Bombardier was TRAXX F140 MS (MS for Multi-System).
Excluding the different pantographs, and electrical systems for DC operation the F140 MS systems are otherwise identical to the contemporary dual voltage versions. However under 1.5kV DC the maximum available power is limited to 4.0MW, although this does not affect the maximum tractive effort, which is limited by other factors. As a consequence of the additional equipment required, the locomotives weigh approximately 1 tonne or more than their dual voltage relatives. The locomotives are designed for cross border operations; the addition of 1.5 and 3kV DC working potentially allows the locomotives to operate in Poland and Italy. In practice the delivered locomotives were used for work into Switzerland and Italy, and equipped with either the Italian safety system SCMT or ETCS.
Post 2006 many more of these multi-system were produced, this time with some for use in the Benelux countries, as well as France and Poland, with further units being produced for Swiss/Italian traffic. #186 #bombardier #cargo #ecr #euro #freight #loco #multi #rail #system #train #traxx
