NVT gains Network Rail approval

May 2010 News

Network Video Technologies (NVT), has been awarded Network Rail type approval in the UK for the company’s range of unshielded twisted pair (UTP), CCTV Hybrid Video transmission products, including PVD (power, video and data) technology.

Network Rail type approval affords NVT’s range of UTP Hybrid Video transmission products with a PADS (parts and drawings system) number, allowing their inclusion into the critical infrastructure of any Network Rail site across the UK. Accreditation guarantees that NVT products meet the rigorous standards of railway infrasructure application, and that the manufacturer provides a high level of aftersales and technical support.

Network Rail owns approximately 2500 railway stations throughout the UK, including major railway interchanges such as London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, and Edinburgh. The award of type approval to NVT products now offers installers and specifiers working on railway projects an unparalleled choice of certified, high-performance and cost-effective UTP CCTV video transmission solutions.

“NVT UTP video is much more installer friendly than fibre-optic or coax cable transmission alternatives, due to the flexible nature of Cat5 cable. It is simpler and quicker to install and can help minimise engineering time onsite, with the associated cost saving benefits,” comments Steve Proctor, NVT’s sales director. “All NVT video transmission products provide unparalleled interference rejection and ground-loop isolation; a critical feature in the high-interference rail environment where 750V DC live power lines can generate surges of up to 10 000 A in close proximity to the CCTV video transmission network.”
