Heating cables for railway infrastructure

Prevent snow and ice from building up on railway switches to allow them to operate properly. The switches are heated by means of a heating cable held in place by a composite strip. Guard rails and slides are heated with plates fitted in strings so that the distance between them can be adjusted to focus power at critical points. This system makes it possible to reduce the installed power for each set of switches. Cables and plates for switches are fully sealed, with a particularly high insulation resistance.
