The Protect RCS DC system (SPRe/TPRe) has been developed and designed to provide high reliability power supply and battery charging capability.
The Protect RCS DC system is a thyristor-controlled rectifier suitable for charging nickel-cadmium or lead-acid batteries while supplying DC loads. It can also be used without batteries as direct power supplies.
Complete modular railway power solutions
The Protect MIP offers a new way of achieving reliable and cost-efficient protection for all railway applications. A modular and scalable design with hot-swappable rectifier modules assures low mean-time to repair, reduction in the service cost and meets changing needs and future expansion.
Available with three rectifier configurations in wall mounted cabinets and nine rectifier configuration in stand alone cabinet, it is suitable for charging many types of lead or nickel-cadmium batteries. It can also be used as a direct power supply without batteries.
