The Conductor Rail may be arranged for the system current collector (shoegear) to pick up current as a top-running, under-running or side-running system.

Aluminium Conductor Rails

These are available in a wide range of different sections to suit the application and special sections are produced regularly for new projects. All the rails feature the hard wearing stainless steel cap which is attached to the highly conductive aluminium by a patented welding process. The result is an excellent electrical cohesion between the two metals and a firm mechanical attachment that eliminates all chance of separation of the capping. The aluminium is protected from any arc damage in the vicinity of the shoes by a wrap-around portion of the cap.

Steel Conductor Rails

Steel conductor rails can be supplied up to a cross-section of 150/yd (74kg/m), along with all the ramps, joints, and cable terminals to suit.
