Crossover Switch

Crossover Switch

Product Overview

Type 7 crossovers are satisfactory for Class A, B or C service. They can be used with any of the light rail sections (Nos. 34011 through 34031) and with hand propelled or motor driven carriers having 4 inch or 5 inch diameter wheels. The Type 7 crossover allows two monorail tracks at the same elevation to cross at right angles. It is not designed to operate with a carrier on the rotating track.

Rated loads for Type 7 crossovers are:

• 2,000 pounds per carrier head.

• 4,000 pounds on the rotating frame and at the outlets of the stationary frame.

Type 7 crossovers may be electrified with 2, 3 or 4 power conductors of Insul-8-Bar electrification. Standard conductor spacing as illustrated in the Electrification Section is used for 2-bar and 3-bar crossovers. Special conductor spacing is required for 4-bar crossovers. Elevation of conductors is 6-1/8 inch above track tread. A wiring harness is furnished on electrified crossovers to provide power to the conductors in the crossover. The harness also serves as a jumper to provide power to the conductors on the incoming tracks. Designed for capacities up to 4,000 lbs.
