Rail Power Systems
Powering the modern railway
We have supplied the rail industry with batteries for over 20 years. We are the UK’s foremost authority on Cyclon batteries and have worked with Network Rail companies to develop and supply batteries and systems for both rail infrastructure and on-board applications.
Using a modular approach we have Network Rail approval for point end switching, level crossing and general signalling batteries and battery/charger systems.
Using our experience we are able to provide technical assistance to supply up to date, modern solutions to replace historical inefficient battery and power equipment.
DMS technologies is the only UK company approved to supply Enersys Cyclon Battery Packs to the rail market.
