Safety and reliability in rail-based transportation have always been HANNING & KAHL’s main concerns. The consistent upgrade of the world–wide proven HW(E)61 is distinguished by maximum reliability, functionality, economic efficiency and unmatched performance. With the HW(E)61.1, HANNING & KAHL sets yet another milestone on the way to maximum transport safety and operating efficiency. The modular design makes this point machine particularly versatile.
The 61.1 series point machines can easily be adapted to any operational requirements and it can also be modified subsequently to fit changing requirements.
The performance range of the series comprises both a variant for the depot according to SIL 2 in compliance with EN 50129 (non-positive locking for negotiating a set of facing points < 15 km/h) and a model for the track with a maximum safety up to SIL 4 in compliance with EN 50129 (positive locking).
Current regulations demand that the movable parts of a point are held in end positions with positive locking when faced at speeds greater than 15 km/h. Here, the HW(E)61.1 falls back on the locking system of the HW(E)61 proven in thousandfold operation.
This system meets all safety requirements and is certified for compliance SIL 4 with CENELEC EN 50129. The locking system acts on the drive and tongue detector rods which are uncoupled mechanically. The positive lock can be trailable or non-trailable. The locking system is safely monitored by signals and virtually wear-free.
