**Bernmobil Be 4/6** is the type designation for the 15 five-part, low-floor articulated trams of the Combino Advanced type operated by the Swiss transport company Bernmobil . The vehicles ordered in 2001 have a front design specially developed for the Bern tram and insulating glazing . In contrast to the closed driver's cab, the passenger compartment is not air-conditioned. In 2009, Bernmobil extended eight cars to over 40 meters in length by adding two additional segments. These are carried under the designation **Be 6/8** .

## description

A rollover protection (fender) protects people who get under the tram from rolling over. Four trams were already equipped with automatic passenger counting equipment when they were commissioned , the others were prepared accordingly. Due to the switch control in Bern, the pantograph is 7000 millimeters away from the front edge of the vehicle.

The tram is based on a welded aluminum frame onto which a frame made of aluminum profiles is screwed. The electrical equipment is housed in a walk-in device container on the roof. The roof is made of aluminum sandwich panels.

The drive is controlled by means of two IGBT pulse inverters which feed the three-phase asynchronous traction motors. The drive is fully regenerative, which means that the electric brake is designed as a regenerative brake and the energy gained from it can be fed back into the catenary network.

The vehicles, which are 100 millimeters wider than the older trams, and the bright interior design should give passengers a pleasant feeling inside. The relatively light vehicles are motorized to a relatively high degree, which enables high acceleration values.
