Socomec’s PADS Approved Masterys Rail IP+ UPS to be Showcased at Railtex 2015
Integrated power specialist, Socomec, will be showcasing its Masterys IP+ Rail UPS systems at Railtex 2015; the market leading critical power systems were recently awarded Network Rail’s prestigious PADS approval.
The Network Rail product acceptance process provides assurance that all products accepted for use on or about the rail infrastructure are safe and fit for purpose.
As part of a continuous programme to improve safety and performance, the rigorous PADs product approval process enabled Socomec to demonstrate product and engineering excellence, as well as its capabilities in terms of design and specification compliance.
The long term site test was integral to the approval process; Socomec and Network Rail engineers worked closely together to ensure that the system integration was completed as planned.
High Performance Critical Power
Socomec’s IP+ Rail range provides the very latest UPS technology for the mass transportation sector. Housed in a compact, robust, steel-framed enclosure, the system has IP31 or IP52 ingress protection as well as anti-corrosion tropicalised circuit boards: this system will operate where conductive dust or dripping water may be present.
The electromagnetic disturbance immunity level is double that required by European EMC standards and has been independently tested and certified to pass EN 50121-4 and 5 Furthermore, low smoke, zero halogen cables are fitted as standard.
With frontal access for input / output cabling, spares replacement and preventative maintenance, Socomec’s Masterys IP+ Rail can be installed in enclosures or containers where space is at a premium. The units can be paralleled up to 6 units for high availability, scalable power.
Nick Golder, mass transportation sales manager for Socomec comments: “It is a privilege to have been awarded the PADs approval for our Masterys IP+RAIL. Socomec is continually working on innovative products designed to meet the unique challenges faced by rail infrastructure.”
