*SD-7200 Series Sensing Head

*SD-7200-1 Sensing Head, Track Mount

*The SD-7200 Series sensing heads feature 4 independent sensing surfaces, one facing in each direction, to provide multiple sensing angles which can sense snow falling at virtually any angle.

The instant a snow or ice storm starts, the Rails Company Snow Detector automatically activates switch-heating equipment and may transmit a signal to maintenance men. As soon as the storm is over, the Snow Detector turns heaters off. The device greatly reduces hazards caused by snow, freezing rain, hail or ice by prompt control of heaters and removal equipment.

The Snow Detector was invented and developed for railroad installations by the Rails Company. Throughout the United States and Canada, the unit has achieved a noteworthy record in keeping railroad switches open under extremely severe storm conditions. We constantly improve and upgrade the design and components to provide maximum performance.
