Socomec will showcase its Masterys IP Rail UPS systems at Railtex 2015, which is due to take place on 12–14 May at the NEC in Birmingham.

The Socomec critical power systems were recently awarded Network Rail’s 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 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.

Key features and benefits

  • Socomec’s IP Rail range provides the 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 six units for high-availability, scalable power.

SOCOMEC UPS were the first manufacturer in France to offer static power supplies in 1968. In 1980 they were the first to design a UPS with PWM technology, 1996 saw them being the first to integrate IGBT technology with major power sources and in 2000, SOCOMEC became the first designer to integrate a UPS with a modular rack system.

Since then they have also been the first to integrate hybrid components in 2001, they developed the first 200kVA UPS to include an IGBT rectifier in 2003 and came up with new battery charging designs in 2004. In 2006 they also developed a replacement for the traditional battery based solution by creating a dynamic energy storage system.
