Charcroft Director, Debbie Rowland, said:

“Ensuring long-term reliability in harsh operating environments is critical in the rail sector”

“Charcroft combines specialised components with an understanding of the unique design challenges within the rail sector and through-life support, which includes obsolescence management. This helps rail OEMs to take advantage of the latest developments in component technology whilst minimising the risk of downtime throughout the lifetime of the electronics systems in rolling stock and signalling equipment.”
