Electric Switch Heater Controls
Rails Company Switch Heater Controls ensure that electric switch heaters operate efficiently and dependably to keep your switches open during snow, sleet or icy weather.
Each control panel is custom designed, incorporating the latest technology and finest components. The controls may be dispatcher operated or equipped for automatic operation with Rails Snow Detectors. The system may also incorporate rail temperature limit controls to reduce power consumption.
Each panel is a complete, pre-wired and tested package designed for easy installation and servicing. Heavy gauge, weather-tight steel or fiberglass enclosures provide protection from the most rugged weather conditions.
Controls are available for any make of tubular or flat electric switch heater, AC or DC, in all voltages; for new installations or as a retrofit to an existing location. Panels can be remotely located to eliminate trackside vibration.
