Rail grinding carriage (Item No. 9470) for all N track and control systems analog and digital.
With SSF-09 control electronics (automatic start / stop function) and Faulhaber¹ engine.
With the N-rail grinder you eliminate on your tracks ...
- dead oil and dirt residues
- Deposits due to traction tire abrasion
- Oxide layers on the rail head
... and thus achieve:
- significantly higher operating hours of the vehicles
- safe current collection from the rail
- trouble-free driving
The fully functional, mobile N-rail grinder for all N-track and control systems has been specially developed to remove stuck oil and dirt residues on the rail. Even the finest dirt on the rail head can lead to considerable malfunctions.
By installing the innovative and reliable cleaning technology in a rail vehicle, it is also possible to easily clean particularly inaccessible areas of your track system such as tunnels, shadow stations and overhead track systems. The maintenance-free operating times of rail vehicles can thus be significantly increased and a safe current collection from the rail is achieved.
The rail grinder is powered by the driving voltage and can be pulled or pushed by standard traction vehicles. He has no drive to move. The vehicle is equipped with a 4-point current consumption. The cleaning technology is powered by a long-lasting and maintenance-free bell armature motor (Faulhaber 1 ). The drive block is completely closed and thus optimally protected against contamination.
The innovative control electronics SSF-09 (automatic start / stop function) works motion-oriented. When the cart is moved on the powered track (pulled or pushed by a locomotive), the cleaning technology automatically turns on. If the moving, activated cleaning trolley comes to a standstill (eg signal stop), the cleaning technology switches off automatically.
The cleaning trolley can be used on analogue and digitally controlled systems. The accumulation station carried in the grinding carriage and charged via the track voltage buffers the motor of the cleaning technology when power is interrupted on the rail (eg due to soiling). This gives the rail grinding vehicle its cleaning effect even with short, currentless track sections.
The high-speed, radially acting cleaning technology runs in a rotating manner over the rail head and can be adjusted using a height adjustment screw. Due to the arrangement of the bogies, the rail grinding wagon in the turns and points areas is particularly safe to run. A special curved linkage of the polishing blanks ensures optimum cleaning efficiency even on complicated routes.
The predominantly soft polishing materials also lie slightly around the rail head and thus clean the extremely critical inside
the profile head with the lowest possible static friction. The particularly good accessibility of the cleaning technology makes it very easy to change (renew) the polishing pad. Various materials are available for cleaning the tracks. As standard, the N-rail grinding trolley is equipped with felt blanks (Part No. 9417).
As a replacement for all N-rail grinders, a Fe2 N scrap collector (Item No. 9475) will soon be available to accommodate ferrous deposits (nails, screws, shavings) in the entire track area. For reed contacts only limited use.
The vehicle was designed in accordance with European Model Railways standards and is protected by patent. The rail grinder can be used with standard half-wave and pulse width controls.
