Holec Ridderkirk Transportation Projects were the main contractor responsible for the overall design and manufacture of the British Railways Board (BRB) 323 Electrical Multiple Unit (EMU). Trolex acted as the sub-contractor for the design, development, manufacture, testing and delivery of the Driver’s Cab Consoles, Cab Partitions and associated equipment, together with ancillary control and distribution panels for trailer cars. The initial contract was for 37 three-car sets with an extension for a further six sets.

Reliability in the sensing and controller hardware is essential to the success of the application and the Trolex platform was selected as it provides a flexible and cost-effective basis for any mine-critical system.
