Underground & Mass Transit
LCS provide On-load and Off-Load DC switchgear enclosures for isolation and safe maintenance of the modern highly reliable Underground ** & Mass Transit systems.
These range from 2000A - 4400A typically but applications have been as high as 6000A.
Typical configurations are as follows:
- Track Isolation
- Substation Bypass
- Section Isolation (Track Sectioning)
- Track/Overhead line Isolation & Bonding
- Track Selection (Changeover)
- Negative Bonding
** The Underground switchgear is designed to meet the very stringent London Underground standards of low smoke zero halogen. LCS employ high grade equipment suitable for the railway environment but the London Underground switchgear employs many special components which are beyond the standard Low Smoke Zero Halogen materials.
