The TMC-1 Switch Machine was conceived, designed and manufactured to address the most demanding requirements of todays rail and transit operations.
Chief among these needs is resiliency to uncontrolled climatic events such as flooding and extreme temperature variations. Controlling intrusion of all phases of water, be it gas, liquid or solid (i.e. moisture, rain or snow) into the machine, is essential to maintain serviceability under these conditions. To accomplish this we have employed proven sealing technologies used in other industries to control all electrical and mechanical inputs and outputs to the machine. In addition to the machine as a whole being rated IP68, all interior electrical connections and components are sealed to a minimum of IP66 to provide safety and redundancy.
Reliability and serviceability under normal conditions is also critical in todays economic environment. Simplicity and modularity of a design are fundamental hallmarks of any well conceived machine. To this end we have created an electrical-mechanical switch machine with the fewest parts of any machine on the market while employing as many modular components as possible.
