Giffen are the leading rail power supply company in the UK.
We have the capability to install and commission remote control insulation monitoring devices, such as BENDER devices. On commissioning, we will identify and highlight any low insulation value readings and at the request of the client, we can rapidly test and replace power cables to ensure the insulation value is increased to a safe and compliant level. This will reduce the likelihood of a signalling power failure and prevent significant train delays.
In the Wessex area, BENDER units have been installed and commissioned with follow up testing and the replacement of defective cables carried out. This is to ensure the units are reporting the highest acceptable insulation values possible, thus to reduce and eliminate the risks of potential 650v signalling power failures along with achieving compliance to standards.
