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.
