Rail Depot Safety Experts – protect your staff and assets

The Rail sector is our primary sector. At FCSC we are committed to making railway depots safer, introducing ground-breaking safety control systems and procedures to protect the depot workforce.

Rail Depot Safety & Control should be a process that works seamlessly with operational activities. We create intelligent Rail Depot Protection Systems (DPS) encompassing features such as RFID tags for logging on/off, Pictorial RFID Logon Stations and Wi-Fi enabled interlocks, all managed via SIL2 Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) making our tailored systems the most flexible on the market. Our DPS systems are fully flexible and can be built to meet each depot’s individual requirements and budgets.

Our Rail Depot Control Systems (DCS) are a totally flexible and cost effective alternative to a Locally Operated Points System (LOPS) or a Depot Points Control System. Using industry proven Aspects, Route Indicators, Points Machines and train detection methods our DCS is extremely user friendly for both experienced and new Operations staff.

We also offer our combined Depot Protection System/Depot Control System which will further eliminate uncertainty by removing interfaces between personnel safety and train movements as our system now fully integrates both systems to provide one fully functional, fully integrated safety system.

All FCSC control systems are designed around the Allen Bradley PLC range with Rockwell Automation software, ensuring worldwide hardware support.

FirstClass Safety & Control (FCSC) offers a comprehensive range of services to ensure a safer future in Railway Depot Operations.

FCSC operates from our engineering and manufacturing facility in Essex, UK and through international offices for local support.

Maximising on our cross-industry knowledge gives us the expertise to offer innovative, affordable and integrated safety protection and control system solutions for all our customers.

Safety is at the forefront of our business, and we design all our systems to meet the required safety integrity level (SIL) accreditation. We manufacture both hardware based and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) based systems using integrated intelligent devices which cater for every requirement.

In addition, our professional after-sales customer care team offer 24/7 full service and support reassuring you that your organisation will receive the prompt support they need when they need it.
