Contact Wire Measurement on Rigid Catenary – Network Rail Approved

Network Rail Approved

Hastec Rail gained another Network Rail approval for their range of state-of-the-art surveying equipment, their Con-Tec Beam. As an addition to their Con-Tec range, these devices mount on standard LLPs to allow ground-level measurement of contact wire wear, with an accuracy of 1mm. The Con-Tec beam uses a pivoting composite arrangement to sit on the contact wire within the rigid catenary system, delivering wear data via a Bluetooth-connected industrial tablet. The broader Con-Tec range delivers measurement data of different contact wire sizes, as well as wear data on section insulators and neutral sections, all from ground level, saving significant time and plant costs. Contact PACE Networks today to discuss a demonstration or trial of the Con-Tec or Con-Tec Beam.
