Siemens S5 to S7 conversion for Eurostar upgrade of their battery maintenance facility

Siemens S5 to S7 conversion for Eurostar upgrade of their battery maintenance facility
14/10/2021

Wonderware SCADA & Siemens S5 to S7 conversion.

Eurostar trains run on three voltages in order that they can operate seamlessly in th UK and Europe. They are also required to run on electrified tracks as well as overhead catenary systems. The pantograph system for the overhead catenary connection is sometimes operated by a backup batteries to avoid the trains being stranded at particular changeover points.

Bubble Automation were contracted to update the battery charging system at the Eurostar maintenance facility. We replaced the two old Siemens S5 PLC's with the latest S7 models. We also upgraded the old SCADA PC with a Wonderware Intouch SCADA system.



The batteries were charged in groups. We were briefed on the system requirements and re programmed it accordingly, this included information on battery charging status and condition as well as an alarm system highlighting faulty batteries.
