HYDROLINK® Force Transmission System

HYDROLINK® is a closed hydraulic system. The principle is that pressure is built up during the switching process in a driving cylinder connected to the first lock. Hydraulic lines to other locking positions in the switch assembly or to the movable crossing transmit this pressure. The switching cylinders connected to the locks are actuated.
