• Trends in power quality for 2019

    Steve Hughes, managing director of power quality specialist REO UK, gives us his insight into the trends in power quality for 2019.

  • REO UK brake resistor passes environmental testing to EN standards

    An electrical braking resistor designed by REO UK to improve the safety and longevity of electronic components in electric vehicles has passed environmental testing to EN standards.

  • Avoiding shocks when electrifying rail

    The political wind has been blowing towards complete rail electrification for decades now without significant progress, so it’s clearly not a straightforward problem to tackle. If it’s to be done, it needs be done right. Steve Hughes, MD of REO UK, explains the importance of ensuring the components underpinning electric trains are carefully considered.

  • How to stop a speeding train

    While the brakes have been put on HS2 for now, OEMs and engineers should consider how trains travelling up to 250 mph will function safely; that includes their braking systems. Steve Hughes, managing director of power quality specialist REO UK, explains how braking resistors will be crucial for stopping the world’s fastest trains.
