Non-Electrified Sliding Switch

Non-Electrified Sliding Switch

Product Overview

Type 2 switches are satisfactory for Class A or B service. They can be used with any of the light rail tracks (Nos. 34011 through 34031) and with hand propelled carriers having 4 inch or 5 inch diameter wheels.

Type 2 switches are available for 2-way right or left hand, 2-way Y or 3-way operation. They have 45 degree outlets on the curve tracks and 6 inch throw. These switches cannot be electrified.

Rated loads for Type 2 switches are:

• 1,500 pounds per carrier head.

• 3,000 pounds on the sliding frame and at the outlets of the stationary frame.

The sliding frame is a welded assembly consisting of a steel plate and straight and curve tracks. A stop is provided on the frame to protect the open end of the incoming track when the switch is set against the track. A spring loaded latch holds the switch tracks in alignment with the incoming tracks as the carrier moves through the switch.
