Clamp Beam

The Pandrol Clamp Beam Balise Mounting System is used to install balises (transponders) into track securely and efficiently. Balises are used as beacons on European train control systems to provide data through communication with train borne receivers. Their accurate positioning and secure fitting are vital to ensure the reliability of the safety critical data they transmit. The Clamp Beam is mounted between sleepers on ballasted or slab tracks and is retained by clamping to the feet of the running rails. Its design ensures that balises are installed in a compliant position, significantly simplifying the installation process and saving time and money. The Clamp Beam has been developed to withstand the adverse track environment and has passed rigorous approval tests. Over 40,000 have been installed worldwide.
