Connections for Gas heaters of railway switch turnouts

Connection for gas needle heater

These polycarbonate connectors, developed for the SNCF, constitute with their metal support a specific assembly used for connecting the electric igniters of the gas heaters for the railway switch turnouts.

They are equipped with 2 Ø3 mm crimp contacts. The female plugs are wired with 7 to 15 m of SENV-S 2×1 type cable and the male extensions are wired with 0.5 m of this same cable.

To ensure low contact resistances and an unequalled resistance to vibrations, the contacts used are nickel-gold plated hermaphroditic contacts, patented by SAIB Connectique, and complying with the requirements of standard NF F 61-030.

The coupling is made by a ¼ turn locking system; both products can be sold together or separately.
