Our rail network keeps the nation on the move - at work and play. Anyone waiting for a delayed train appreciates the importance of a reliable system. Blue Chip Technology is a key supplier to the rail industry, providing the industrial computing platforms for the Jubilee line extension and the current Public Private Partnership project to upgrade signalling and train control on the Victoria, Hammersmith and City, District, Metropolitan and Circle Lines.

Our rail specific industrial computers conform to Rail Industry Association guidelines on shock and vibration, rail-specific EMC standards and London Underground Ltd (LUL) regulations governing EMC and environmental conditions. Designed for maximum reliability, our rail industry IPC's operate over extended temperature ranges and incorporate Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSOH) materials. Equipped with an on-site EMC facility, Blue Chip Technology can design and test industrial computer platforms for control room environments.
