The system

RIVVAL were awarded a delivery project for the supply of a point heating condition monitoring system for Northern Ireland Railways. The system was required to monitor the operation of an existing point heating system to determine the periods of on/off compared with a related cold rail temperature.


RIVVAL provided the following elements:- • Condition Monitoring units; • Trackside cabinet wiring diagrams; • Programming of condition monitoring units; • Mechanical assembly of trackside cabinets; • Wiring and testing of trackside cabinets; • Interrogation programme layouts; • Setup and testing to interrogation programme. The system provides a range of monitoring benefits ensuring that efficiencies of the point heating is maintained and that any failures are identified at an early stage.
