Vortok On-Tie Beam

The Vortok On-Tie Beam is a non-intrusive balise transponder mounting system.

The On-Tie Beam comprises a GRP beam with stainless steel yokes that use the existing rail fastenings to hold the beam in track, eliminating the need to drill ties or dig out ballast for the steel banding. Its design enables rapid installation, re-positioning or removal, with installation typically taking less than five minutes per balise, thus reducing the manpower requirement.

 

Technical Features

  • The tie compatible design can be installed onto most combinations of track formations, tie types and existing rail fastenings. This removes the need to drill into concrete ties
  • The strong yet lightweight GRP beam with stainless steel yokes, makes the Vortok On-Tie Beam robust and easy to carry
  • Completely insulated and vibration resistant to EN50125-3, the On-Tie Beam is suitable for the highest speed lines
  • The On-Tie Beam uses the existing rail fastenings to hold the beam in track, removing the need to drill into concrete ties, or dig out ballast for the steel band fixing

Advantages

  • As there is no need for digging/removing ballast or re-tamping, maintenance can be carried out in cold weather
  • Non-conductive design ensures no interference with existing signalling systems
  • The simple, non-intrusive installation of the Vortok On-Tie Beam enables rapid installation, repositioning or removal of ERTMS/ETCS and CBTC/PTC transponders. With installation typically taking less than five minutes per Balise, the manpower requirement is reduced
  • Highly resistant to climatic changes and chemicals giving it extended life in track
