SUPPORTING THE RAIL INFRASTRUCTURE

We have a large product portfolio which is specifically designed for the rail infrastructure and have been supplying into the sector for a number of years.  Our basket of rail products covers catenary, track side feeder stations, trackside connections and tooling for rail contractors. We can supply from our worldwide partners, PADS approved cable for signalling and power as well as joints and terminations for the rail network. We have the in-house capability to offer innovative solutions to current processes and procedures, providing an alternative supply and often cost savings.

We work with a number of global suppliers which include Safetrack, PBwel, Henley, Prysmian Group, 3M, TE Connectivity who we can source products from to enable us to offer a one stop shop solution to the rail market.

Our strength is our stock holding as well as our close relationships with our partners which gives us the ability to source and deliver products to support customer projects.

Rail Earthing Equipment

PBWEL supply various Long Earths to the Rail industry ranging from 8mtr Blue Earths to Interlocked Earths.

  • Long Blues
    Long Blues are generally 8mtr in length, however any length can be provided if required. Although an S9B to J117-D Blues can also be supplied with CE62 Clamps.
  • Interlocked Earths
    Interlocked earths provide the same connections as a regular Long Blue, however the Clamps utilised a lock-and-key system where the Earth end is removed using the Line end. This ensures that Engineers do not accidentally disrupt the path to earth prematurely. Line end clamps are available in an S9B style or CE5 style.

The HVL 120-0.3 (hybrid voltage limiter) is a voltage limiting device (VLD) used primarily in DC traction systems to protect against electric shock. Impermissible touch voltages can occur in DC traction systems between track systems (return conductors) and earthed metal structures, as the track systems are laid insulated to limit stray currents. The HVL limits touch voltages regardless of whether they are purely DC or mixed voltages (both DC and AC voltages) to the permissible limit values defined in EN 50122-1
