Intelligent Insulation Monitoring and Earth Fault Location Technology
Rail operators must ensure the absolute safety and availability of rail networks, to prevent disruption to passenger services resulting in costly fines and penalties.
Electrical signal power systems keep the track infrastructure moving each day. Any insulation faults, failure or damage preventing trains from operating effectively has serious consequences for Network Rail, train operators and passenger journeys.
Bender Rail Signalling (RS4) integrated insulation monitoring and earth fault location equipment provides proven protection for railway electrical systems. RS4 solutions deliver multi-tier smart cable insulation monitoring and fault location in order to monitor, provide early warning and pinpoint insulation problems - to prevent rail downtime and improve operations.
Bender UK has a proven track record in rail with over 1000 rail signalling protections systems installed in the field. The improved RS4 with enhanced features and capabilities delivers a more accurate and holistic overview of cable health in rail electrical infrastructure.
Employing tried and trusted Bender measuring technology combined with two decades of product innovation, RS4 variants have increased sensitivity and faster first fault location, enabling engineers to identify issues in advance of failure and respond more quickly.
The technology provides total compliance with NR/L2/SIGELP/27725, the latest standard for Insulation Monitoring and Fault Location Systems used on Signal Power Systems.
