All our control and power distribution products are designed and manufactured to meet the exacting technical and safety standards required by the rail industry, and our installation and commissioning personnel are trained to meet the relevant health and safety standards and methods.

Selected through competitive tendering, GPS has brought innovation and efficiency to applications from safety critical equipment to environmental controls.

Requirement

GPS has delivered a broad range of rail projects with a common requirement for safety and reliability including:

Infrastructure projects for LV power distribution, lighting and HVAC at stations.

Trackside projects including points heating panels, REB switchboards and train washing systems.

Underground projects from SER panels to groundwater pumping stations.

Solution

To met these requirements GPS developed a rail industry specification and test regime from measuring MTBF to shock and vibration testing, and achieved continuous improvement through innovation in design and use of technology.

GPS introduced some of the first PLC controlled equipment in the early 2000’s for energy saving lighting, and designed a compact withdrawable MCC for ease of maintenance and space saving for underground schemes such as the Victoria Line upgrade, which was manufactured in volume and is still in use today.

Results

GPS has delivered high reliability products to meet safety critical, operational and passenger requirements that have also delivered value in terms of energy and and maintenance savings.
