The benefits of using Weidmuller’s 24 Vdc power management systems

Power Supplies – PROtop is reliable, powerful, efficient and communicative power supplies.

PROtop combines the highest efficiency and compact housings with high durability and direct parallel connection with integrated O-Ring MOSFETs. This reduces costs and creates space in the control cabinet. Due to the powerful DCL technology, even difficult loads – motors, for instance – are operated smoothly, while circuit breakers are triggered reliably. The communication capability allows permanent condition monitoring and full integration with control systems.

Your advantages:

  • Safe triggering of circuit breakers due to DCL
  • High energy reserves for powerful engine starts due to DCL
  • Highest efficiency and very long lifetime
  • Extremely space-saving design
  • Integrated O-Ring MOSFETs for redundancy or parallel operation without diode modules
  • Future-proof due to optional communication modules that can be retrofitted at any time

Weidmüller sponsors 2018 UK Rail Industry Award Design Innovation Category

We are proud to announce that we are sponsoring the Design Innovation category in the high profile Rail Industry Awards for 2018.

This award category provides recognition for companies that devise original solutions to problems through innovative and original design. The successful company has to prove that they have reduced costs or improved performance, quality and safety through design. The category focuses particularly on those companies that have shown initiative and creativity in finding design solutions that benefit the UK rail industry as a whole.

“The rail industry is very important to us and, by sponsoring this award, we are delighted to be able to give a little back to our customers and colleagues who work so hard to achieve excellence in this sector,” said Simon Goodwin, Managing Director of Weidmüller UK.

“We’ve chosen to sponsor the Design Innovation award because its focus on creative solutions that deliver major benefits closely matches Weidmüller’s own business focus. We’re confidently looking forward to seeing some impressive entries and we’re equally confident that the judges will select a worthy winner!”

Now in its fifth year, the UK Rail Industry Awards brings together the leaders and decision-makers running the rail industry for the sector’s biggest and most prestigious celebration. The event highlights and rewards the hard work and achievements of the dedicated organisations, teams and individuals that work tirelessly to deliver an efficient and robust rail network, which continues to be one of the safest in Europe.

As well as sponsoring the Design Innovation award, Weidmüller has been shortlisted alongside its partner Thales for an award in the Outstanding Projects over £20m category. Weidmüller’s work with Thales on the Four Lines Modernisation Project for London Underground – which is currently the largest railway re-signaling project in the world­ – impressed the judges and secured the company a place alongside Thales in the final.

About  Weidmüller in the Rail Industry:

With a wealth of global industry experience, Weidmüller has designed a wide range of solutions ready to meet a diverse range of rail applications, from drivers’ control desks, to car-to-car connections, right through to switch point control cabinet solutions and level-crossing control units. Indeed, Weidmüller has been developing and fine-tuning components to fulfil the special requirements of the rail industry for over 50 years with products and solutions that have proved their resilience to vibrations, impacts and climatic conditions.

Weidmüller and Thales project shortlisted for 2018 UK Rail Industry Award

 A recent project undertaken by Weidmüller and Thales has been shortlisted for the UK Rail Industry Awards in the Outstanding Projects worth over £20m category. The Four Lines Modernisation (4LM) Project for London Underground Limited, and the innovative way in which it has been handled, impressed the judges, securing Weidmüller and Thales a much-coveted place amongst the finalists. The black-tie award ceremony will take place at the Battersea Evolution in London on 22nd March, 2018.

 

Now in its fifth year, the UK Rail Industry Awards bring together the leaders and decision-makers running the rail industry for the sector’s biggest and most prestigious celebration. The event recognises the hard work and achievement from the dedicated organisations, teams and individuals working tirelessly to deliver an efficient and robust rail network, which continues to be one of the safest in Europe.

The 4LM project, which has provided Weidmüller and Thales with its route to the finals, is currently the largest railway signalling upgrade project in the world. It entails installing new signalling systems on the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines, which between them account for 40% of London Underground’s traffic. The main objectives of the project are to make the system safer and more reliable and to increase the number of trains per hour that can run on these four lines, providing a 33% expansion in peak passenger carrying capacity. The project involves five complex rail junctions, 113 stations and 119 trains.

For the 4LM project, Weidmüller supplied Thales with in excess of 3,000 enclosures. Based on standard products, these were customised to meet London Underground’s exacting requirements, an approach that provided an excellent technical solution along with competitive pricing and guaranteed product availability. An additional benefit was that Weidmüller was able to test and certify the customised enclosures in its own in-house test facility, thereby eliminating the delays associated with using an external test house.

London Underground passengers will begin to see the benefits of 4LM project at the end of 2019, when the new signalling systems on the Circle line will go live. The full benefits will become apparent in 2023 when the final stages of the project are completed. This is all thanks to the high reliability of Thales SelTrac signalling systems and the exceptional protection afforded to key elements of the new signalling installation by Weidmüller enclosures.

In addition to being amongst the finalists, Weidmuller is also showing its support for the rail sector by sponsoring the Design Innovation category of the awards.
