Clamp BKL 61

The path-controlled clamp BKL 61 replaces the rigid locking clamps of conventional turnout locking devices by the straightforward design. The simple and failure-free design shows clear benefits in terms of safety and efficiency. Especially difficult weather conditions with considerable temperature variations or other longitudinal forces are the circumstances where BKL 61 performs reliably.

 

Design and Function

The functional principle of the turnout locking device with path-controlled pin joint conforms with that of the conventional clamping lock. However, the design allows for an automatic compensation of relative movements between stock rail and switchblade within +/-30 mm, e. g., caused by thermal expansion.

The movement is achieved by torsion of the pin joint in relation to the clamp. A crankshaped connecting between the pin joint and the clamp ensures the correct distance of switch borehole to contract surface of the locking tappet in any position.

 

Application

BKL 61 may be used for any turnout, even with elastic support and any common rail profile. Anytime, standard clamp locks can be easily upgraded with BKL 61. It performs particularly well under difficult weather conditions.

 

Highlights

  • No adjustment of the lock in case of temperature variations necessary
  • Applicable for every common rail profile
  • Upgrading possible at any time in clamp locks
  • Minimized maintenance costs
  • High availabilit
  • Fast payback
