iLECSYS Rail has long championed the use of GRP enclosures for disconnection boxes. iLECSYS Rail seeks to offer a comprehensive introduction into the various ranges of DIS boxes and the applications they can be used for.
Detailed technical guidance and specifications for all free wired and Plug & Play configurations can be found in our downloadable PDF. These can be used to assist with project design and specifications. DIS box selections via both application and system architecture can be made based on detailed GA drawings and the alignment of Network Rail SE-SK diagrams for Plug & Play applications.
The full range of DIS boxes are based on a number of GRP enclosure ranges, all having product acceptance and aligning to BS EN 50215-4. Mounting options and accessories are detailed within the PDF guide. Dimensions and weights have been added, to aid with detailed specification and designs.
All free wired DIS boxes feature multi-connection, disconnect terminals from WAGO, Weidmuller or Entrelec. These terminals replace the traditional 2BA links and allow for “Top Nutting” where the rehearsal is required within the DIS box. Additional DIS box types are available with 10sqmm terminals for long-distance applications. Many of the signalling configurations will allow for additional connections for TPWS (TSS) within the single disconnection box.
The range of iLECSYS free wired boxes has been expanded with the addition of the BRES range of enclosures, as specified on certificate PA05/07019. This range of enclosures furthers the available enclosure sizes and configurations. This has been supported by the introduction of a new GRP pedestal, which comes complete with a removable front cover section for installations and a handy hinged access panel for maintenance.
A new European Traffic Control System (ETCS) Eurobalise disconnection box has been included in the range. These units have recently been used on trial at the Heathrow Branch, as per the Crossrail ETCS Western Project: Stage A.
A comprehensive range of both Plug & Play and Interface boxes are available for every trackside application, as well as a large range of General Purpose DIS boxes, from 2-core to 48-core and larger marshalling boxes. We have included a range of key Plug & Play products that support Network Rail maintainers, including the isolation detection DIS box and the Plug & Play conversion kits, for Clamplock retrofit upgrades. Also included in the guide is a range of standard Trackside Connection Boxes (TCBs) for points heating and lighting applications. These can be supplied complete with mounting kits, appropriate cable glands and labelling.
