Flexicon will be showing a wide range of flexible conduit solutions for cabling management and protection within both rolling stock and infrastructure applications from its stand 844 at Railtex in March. The products have been designed, manufactured and tested with documented compliance for use on both National Rail and the London Underground network.

Included on the stand is its nylon moulded FPAX fittings, which can be used with both fine and coarse pitch conduit.  Rated at up to IP69K, the fittings are available with a swivel metal thread in straight, 45o and 90o.   The FPAX fittings are also anti-vibration and tamper resistant, have a high pull off strength, are low fire hazard and can be used for applications with a temperature range of between -50oC to +135oC.


Other conduit systems featured are the range of LFHU type galvanised steel with Extra Low fire Hazard polyolefin coating which are also available with Stainless Steel (316) and Tinned copper overbraiding for enhanced aesthetic, mechanical and EMC protection.


Says Rail Business Development Manager for Flexicon, Steve Cheek:  “Flexible conduit protects cabling for hundreds of different rail applications.  Our products have been specified and installed in numerous infrastructure, signalling, telecoms, rolling stock applications and also for EMC protection on safety critical systems.”


Recent projects from Flexicon include the cable management and protection on Multi Purpose Vehicles (MPVs) used by Network Rail for track cleaning, for passenger carriages used on Tibet Rail and for the Metro extension in Delhi in advance of the 2010 Commonwealth games.
