Plug & Play with Network Rail

Mini-expo at Westwood Event

Tags: Better Reliability Compliant to Standards Engineering Technology iLS Increased Safety Infrastructure LED Technology Plug and Play

Sudden and persistent downpours didn't dampen the messages at the Network Rail Plug & Play event at their Westwood training centre in Coventry.  

The event attracted over 140 delegates from Network Rail and its Contractor base learning the messages of how Plug & Play technology has developed to now being deployed at level crossings, in signalling and at switch & crossings. We displayed a range of our equipment, all now integrated with the Plug & Play equipment.  This display included:

  • Signalling Location Case, Marshalling Box, LXC/LCU
  • Unipart Dorman LED Signals with the 10 year maintenance free aspects
  • Greater lumens output WigWag with plug coupler interface
  • Points Interface Location (PIL)
  • Break-Out Box (BoB) and S&C BoB

Although wet, the delegates had the opportunity to have a go with the plug couplers and chat with our experts on how the technology has now become 'mainstream' and is now in service on the rail infrastructure.
