Automate switching operations

The Model WCHT-72 is a proven electro-hydraulic switch machine, designed to operate effectively in railroad yard and industrial switching areas.

The adjustable quad coil spring system ensures constant point pressure and allows complete trailability without damage to the unit.

Our unique programmable control logic design allows flexibility of control and provides for many standard features not found in machines in this class, such as obstruction detection, restore after trailing and fault and lockout indications. The WCHT operates on either 120 or 240VAC and can be configured for 120VAC or 12/24VDC control voltage.

The WCHT may be electrically operated locally or from a remote system. Dual-control hydraulics allow the switch to be hand pump operated with ease.

Options include machine mounted position indication lamps and local operation switch. The WCHT-72 is available for operation of sliding derails.
