LCS at INFRARAIL 2016, EXCEL, LONDON 12th to 14th April 2016

The LCS stand gave a hint why they are Britain’s leading supplier of DC Trackside Switchgear. The stand contained a varied sample of the differing types of DC Railway switchgear in the LCS portfolio. 

On the Left Hand side of the stand there was a 4000A Track Disconnector (TIS) in its GRP enclosure (grey enclosure in the photograph). This is used extensively by Network Rail for mainline and depot isolations.

Alongside the TIS was a post mounted 2000A Track Feeder Isolator as used by Docklands Light Railway. This is a motor driven off load isolation and bonding device. This was fully operational on the stand and could be operated from the Mimic Panel or the touch screens. 

Merry Christmas from LCS

LCS wish all their Customers and Suppliers a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.


The Christmas card this year is the Volks Electric Railway on Brighton Seafront. This is the oldest operating electric railway in the UK.
