Stinger System

Stinger System
Stinger systems serve the power supply of parked vehicles in maintenance areas, e.g. for battery charging or other maintenance work, which must be conducted under vehicle voltage. Furthermore, with our Stinger systems, the vehicles can be moved within the depot or maintenance facilities by means of a control console.  The connection terminals of our 3rd Rail Current Collectors can be used as Stinger terminals by installing an arbor.  We manufacture and install complete systems according to customer requirements including conductor lines, plug and wire connections, control systems and arbors on railway vehicles.

Wabtec Positive Train Control PTC Switch Obstruction Gauge

Switch Obstruction Gauge

G & B Switch Obstruction Gauge allows for one person to operate the switch and make the necessary circuit controller adjustments without dislodging the gage. The obstruction surfaces are machined for accuracy and finished with a zinc dichromate finish for corrosion resistance. Metric sizes are available; please contact sales for more information

Wabtec Positive Train Control PTC Products Switch Point Rollers

Switch Point Rollers

Due to the development of longer high-speed switches and the continued use of heavy rail sections, G&B Specialties offers a variety of switch point rollers to significantly reduce the effort required in switch point movement. By lifting the point off the gage plates as the switch is thrown, these rollers reduce the friction between the switch point and gage plates, consequently, reducing the force needed to throw the switch. Both “top of tie” and “in the crib” designs are available. These devices are easily installed on 115lb RE and heavier rail on existing or new switches and are especially advantageous when used on manual operated switches, spring switches and power operates switches.

Wabtec Positive Train Control PTC Third Rail Current Collectors

Third Rail Current Collectors

Third rail shoegears are used for the power supply of underground and urban railways. The raising to the respective conductor rail is carried out according to the customer specification via simple gravity systems to remotely controlled systems with impulse or continuous air. The maximum vehicle speed with third rail shoegears is approx. 120 km/h. Application and lowering takes place manually or remotely controlled, i.e. by means of mechanical or pneumatic systems. Contact to the conductor rail is implemented via the following technologies: TRSG Top-Running-System TRSG Bottom-Running-System TRSG Side-Running-System Pneumatic systems are powered by compressed air. The deployment and retraction to the conductor rail and attachment of the current collector is controlled or initiated centrally from the driver’s cabin. Inductive or mechanical proximity switches are used for detecting the shoe position. Pneumatic systems can also be actuated with insulated hand levers using the emergency function. Mechanical systems are operated manually. The deployment and retraction of the current collector to the rail conductor is done individually – with the help of an insulated hand lever.

wabtec westinghouse air brake TENM™ - Train Environmental Noise Monitor

TNM™ - Train Noise Monitor

The Train Noise Monitor uses a wayside mounted camera combined with a high precision microphone to record the sound levels associated with a train passby. High noise levels can be identified and a matched image can be used to identify offending vehicles. The system uses a non-contact distance sensor to identify the presence of a train. One system can even be used to monitor multiple tracks at a location. No part of the equipment is installed within three metres of the track centre.
The system interfaces with Track IQ’s wayside database FleetONE™. A comprehensive set of statistics is available to track the performance of any train noise control programs or monitor environmental noise near residential areas.
Suitable for environmental extremes and day/night applications. The system is totally self-contained and uses a solar array for power and a 3G connection to transfer data from the site to the FleetONE™ database.
