The overhead traction line provides temporary earth bonds between overhead catenary or contact conductors and earthed rail sections or recognised earthing points. The equipment has been specially enhanced in order to address the potentially fatal procedure of removing the equipment in the incorrect order from service. To ensure that the Line End Clamp is removed prior to the earth potential clamp it incorporates a special key which must be used to remove the Earth End Clamp.
The tamperproof lock arrangement is an integral part of both clamps and up to 20 combinations are provided, to deter ‘master keys’ being used to fool the system.
- Suitable for fitting to all common types of running and conductor rails
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- 20 ‘Key’ combinations
- Suitable for corroded rails, steel framework, or earthing rods
