Transit Conductor Rail Profiles

Our standard array of conductor rail profiles work well for many power rail operating envelops. But if you need a special rail profile, we can design and manufacture it.  Our aluminum power rail provides low resistance and high conductivity unmatched by all-steel rails.  Our integrated stainless steel cap, either crimped-on or welded-on, provides wear characteristics superior to all-steel rails.

Welded Cap Aluminum-Stainless Conductor Rail

Our patented Welded Cap Rail gives you the conductivity and light weight of aluminum plus the wearability of stainless steel.  Handle more current and incur less voltage drop with this "green", energy-saving alternative to outmoded, corrosion-prone steel power rails.  Our tough stainless steel cap provides a long-wearing and consistent running surface.  This rail is superior to any other type of capped aluminum rails on the market.

Power Rail Impact Analysis System (PRIAS)

The PRIAS (Power Rail Impact Analysis System) is a diagnostic tool offered exclusively by Conductix-Wampfler that can improve transit conductor rail system performance.  The diagnostic system is temporarily attached to the vehicle and as it moves down the railway, PRIAS records collector impacts and current draw.  It identifies, to within one meter resolution, guideway locations where excessive impacts and/or current draw might reduce collector shoe life or damage the rail.  PRIAS displays the problem areas on color-coded maps so that system refinements and corrections can be made.
