PLCS – Railway and Industrial PLC systems - General


PLC Systems to sequence control and monitor traction power systems which typically comprise Circuit Breakers, Contactors and Disconnectors where a high integrity control is required.

The systems can be used to apply a hot standby system which can automatically be invoked if a fault is detected.


These systems are often required where a failure would have serious effects on train movements. These losses of trains incur immense penalties to either the system provider or the System operator.

The PLC can ensure that this disruption is kept to a minimum thus saving considerable amounts of money.


The PLC’s often work with Mimic panels but Mimic panels are often provided for Railway systems even if there is no PLC.
