Press Release: Infrarail 2014

One of the UK’s biggest telephone specialists is set to make its debut at Infrarail to support the recent launch of a range of heavy duty models ideal for trackside and platform operations.

Interquartz UK, which has sold over ten million of its highly durable models worldwide, will showcase three models launched under the new Vulcan brand, each specially designed to withstand harsh or extreme working environments. Features including mild or stainless steel fascias as opposed to cheaper but less robust polyester casings, Zintec (electro-zinc plate) chassis and chrome armoured cords capable of handling some 200Kg of strain. Handsets are also manufactured from highly durable heat and solvent resistant Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and polycarbonate with keypads constructed from die cast and engraved alloy rather than the less durable printed rubber favoured by some manufacturers.

All models are also supplied with auto-reporting as standard and not an optional extra. This enables customers to check the service status of both handset and line. An optional management system is also available for large deployments. The Vulcan LC also incorporates an ultra-loud ringer emitting a mighty 105dBA compared to the standard 80dBA offered by other industrial ‘phones.

Interquartz will bring three models to the Earls Court show, the  Vulcan LC range workhorse, the IP66 ingress resistant weatherproof unit and Assist Help-Point telephone. “The introduction of the Vulcan range provided a real imperative when it came to Infrarail,” commented Charles Williams, Business Development Director at Interquartz UK. “Simply put these models are designed specifically to serve the kind of unforgiving environments typically associated with rail infrastructure projects. They are not simply weatherproof but truly heavy duty, designed to withstand some of the toughest challenges presented by the environment.” 

Available in either analogue or SIP versions, the LC is among the sturdiest of industrial telephones on the market with a 3mm steel casing, manufactured not just to survive heavy usage but the impact of harsh environmental conditions.  Intelligent fraud prevention is included as standard along with programmable call barring.

Unlike some ingress protection rated models on the market the Vulcan IP66 exceeds the requirements of Ingress Protection Rating 66 which makes it the ideal choice for use in damp, humid or dusty workplaces such as tunnels, depots, trackside, platforms and storage facilities. It also features a spring, slam lock door to further enhance the weatherproofness of the phone.


Meanwhile the Vulcan Assist is designed to serve as an emergency or access control telephone and is offered with either one or two vandal resistant pre-programmable push buttons which automatically dial a pre-programmed number. Featuring unique remote speaker and volume control facility which can be activated by any standard dual-multi-tone-frequency phone this model requires no electrical supply as it can be PSTN line or PBX powered.


The Vulcan range will appear on stand H10 alongside Interquartz’s well-established Gemini range of office deskphones.
