GROUNDING THE CATENARY
Grounding the catenary - trains
Double arch universal switch rod head
The purpose of the TPU2 double arch switch rod head is to allow the short-circuit current to flow between the overhead line and the connecting cable
Insulated reinforced pole with foam-cover upper tube
The telescopic insulating pole can be used to place the universal switch rod head on the overhead wire during verification or lockout operations on live cables.
Contact vehicle pole
The contact vehicle pole is used to place the switch rod head on the contact wire during verification or lockout operations on live cables.
- MPR / CABLES
Rail foot clamp temporary / connection cables
The MPR rail foot clamp, joined to the TPU2 switch rod head via the connecting cable, is used to establish equipotentially between overhead line and the rail or any other metallic structure
Grounding the catenary – trams
- TPU2 - TRAM
Tramway switch rod head
The purpose of the TPU-Tram double arch switch rod head is to allow the short-circuit current to flow between the overhead line and the rail connecting cable.
- PIM TRAM
Tramway insulated telescopic pole
The PIM-Tram Insulated Telescopic pole is particularly suited for use on Tramway networks. It consists of 2 parts and can be used to install the voltage detector of the universal switch rod head on the overhead contact line
- MPRG / CABLES
Grooved rail foot clamp / Temporary connection cables
The MPRG rail foot clamp joined to the TPU-Tram switch rod head via the connecting cable is used to establish equipotentiality between overhead contact line and the grooved rail.
