The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) is a commuter system provider serving Long Island and New York. It is the second busiest commuter railroad in North America serving millions of passengers each year. Established in 1834 and having operated continuously since then, it is the oldest US railroad still operating under its original name and charter. There are 124 stations on the LIRR with more than 700 miles of track, and it is publicly owned by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Power Systems & Controls was contacted by Long Island Rail Road to participate in a tender project for two Frequency Converter systems that they needed to support signaling railroad operations. There was numerous stages in the review process, and countless drawings from Engineering were required as PS&C continually worked with LIRR to design the perfect solution for their project.

LIRR selected PS&C because we offered a super product, great customer service, and our attention to detail from incorporating Engineering’s insight and support. We beat out numerous other competitors for the project. PS&C is already in production of the (2) large Rotary Frequency Converters, which should be ready to ship ahead of schedule. Power Systems & Controls is excited to help and support LIRR, and can’t wait to work with them again in the near future.

Power Systems & Controls has a state of the art production and test facility located in Richmond, VA allowing for easy access to Washington, DC and the east coast. PS&C has the unique ability to support both static (solid-state) and rotary (motor generator) UPS, frequency converter, and power conditioning requirements as we are one of the few companies in the world that manufactures both types of technology. Power Systems & Controls is an employee owned company and has a long history of successfully supporting mission critical applications across the world. PS&C – The Power Is On!
