FeaturesThe UK rail market is faced with increasing demand from passenger travel, the rail freight industry and the ongoing need for asset replacement of the network whilst ensuring safety, security and reliability. Rail operators need intelligent solutions to monitor, control and optimise the electrical assets on the rail network.
The Compact PSP is aimed at Islands of Signal assets where a conventional PSP would not be cost effective.
Designed to use the standard Location Case foundation, each principal supply point will provide up to five outgoing signal power supplies from a Single DNO feeder. Provision has been made for a generator to connected via a socket. If the DNO supply is lost a 10/16 kVA UPS will provide power for up to 15 minutes.
As required by the regulations the IT earthed signal supplies are monitored for earth faults.
Manufactured in the UK this Compact PSP complements the Schneider Functional Supply Points already in service with Network Rail.
