Train Rail Switch

Linear motions of moving train rail switches in switching yards can be easily monitored remotely with Temposonics linear position sensors. In cost sensitive short stroke systems like this one, the C-Series sensors easily provide an economical solution. While in this implementation, the customer built a compact protective housing integrated into the double ended rod configuration. Newer models of the C-Series, including the M1 type housing, would make the custom housing unnecessary and much easier to integrate.
