HRS Locking Device

The modern turnout locking device from voestalpine BWG ensures not only safe locking between switch and stock rail of a turnout, but also the holding down of the locked switch.

The HRS locking mechanism with its changeover principle Lift – Roll – Lower – Secure is suited for every common rail profile in the switch section as well as in the area of the movable frogs.

 

Design and Function

The unlocking, moving and locking functions of the locking device are controlled by a special link block of the clamp in the locking rod. The design of the clamp permits the switch to be braced with the stock rail, both in horizontal and vertical directions. This also guarantees that the switch rail and the stock rail have the same height even in case of elastic subsidence of the stock rail.

The switch attachment BKL 80 is designed such that a correct setting movement is ensured even if the switch rail moves +/-40 mm relative to the stock rail.

All setting movements are carried out via low-maintenance rollers; there are no sliding components which require high maintenance.

 

Application

The HRS Locking Device can be used for all common rail profiles both in switch devices and movable frogs.

The voestalpine BWG product is state-of-the-art in high-speed lines, but it is also commonly used and proven for all other fields of application. Because of its modular design, it can be easily retrofitted.

 

Highlights

  • Securing the locked switch in horizontal and vertical directions
  • Suitable for ballasted and slab track
  • Low maintenance due to permanent roll lubrication and BKL 80
  • Substantial extension of maintenance intervals
  • Fast payback
  • High degree of availability
  • High quality
