manual clamping tool / rail
The rail foot clamp MPRG, joined to the tramway switch rod head TPU-Tram through the cable, is used to establish equipotentiality between catenaries and the rail. It permits the passage of low current, high current, permanent or from short circuits.
The groove rail foot clamp MPRG is equipped with a diamond brad plate and a toothed screw, realized in very high resistance steels, which enables the cutting through rail oxide.
The tightening of the screw with a hex. key ensures connexion even with oxidized rail.
This model is especially adapted to groove rail used on the Tramway, notably on rail RI60 and 35GTF. Do not hesitate to contact us for other types of groove rail.
Brad plates are easy to replace and available in a repair kit. A wear groove adjustment kit made of 4 pieces of 2mm thinkness wedges to place under brad plates is also available as an option.
Each connection cable is made of a round copper braid (strand Ø 0,2mm) protected by a transparent silicon insulation and of two reinforced embossed lugs crimped both on cable and insulation and having a M12 terminal hole.
Connection cables are available in 25 sqmm, 40 sqmm and 95 sqmm sections, and in 2m, 7m and 10m long.
