Bespoke Location Case Design 

RSP’s experienced in-house team of IRSE licenced designers offer a bespoke package of trackside LOCs designs. We work with your requirement, from concept to the principle designs through to AFC manufacturing wiring diagrams. RSP can undertake the product design for a wide range of rail LOC (railway cabinet) projects utilising our wealth of knowledge gained through many years of industry experience.

Location Case Manufacture & Testing 

Where are the rail LOC’s built?

Rail Signalling and Power’s Rail LOC’s are populated in-house at our manufacturing facilities in Saltash Cornwall, by our experienced IRSE licenced in-house team. Our team conducts 3c testing which identifies any latent interface issues, these issues are resolved in the factory early in the project life cycle, reducing the risk of delays to the project. The benefits of this testing have been appreciated by our clients and have significantly reduced costs.

Our standardised location case layout “first-fit” philosophy leads to a shortened delivery programme and cost savings. Our location cases feature market-proven Network Rail standard components and can feature our own market-leading Functional Supply Point (FSP) power enclosures.
