Avoid the requirement for rail road vehicles (rrv) and isolation with the Con-Tec Gauge System

Measure contact wire wear, accurately and safely with Hastec Rail’s Con-tec Gauge System. Ergonomically designed using lightweight, non-conductive polymer materials, this system reduces proximity to OLE and avoids risk from working at height. With a fully compatible adapter to existing approved OLE Live Line Working Poles, minimal equipment and labour is needed, saving both time and money.

Contact wire wear measurement

Contact Wire Wear Measurement

Measures 107, 120, 150, and .3 square inch from low level. Accurate to 0.1mm

Side Wear Measurement

Side Wear Measurement

Adjustable between 0- 90 degrees allowing operatives to measure the angle at which the contact wire is most worn.

Bluetooth Enabled

Bluetooth Enabled

In-built laser enables the operator to record wire wear measurements in real time at ground level via Bluetooth to a paired tablet .

Reduced Costs

Reduced Time & Costs

Eliminates the need for RRV and Isolation, and reduces maintenance team sizes.

Boots Off Ballast

Boots Off Ballast

Reduces risk from working at height and avoids OLE proximity.

Reduce errors with instant readings, accurate to 0.1mm

 

Fully compatible and designed to be mounted on existing Network Rail approved LLWPs (Live Line Working Poles), the design and arrangement of the Con-Tec enables all operator activities to be performed at ground level.

The in-built Laser enables the operator to record wire wear measurements in real time at ground level via Bluetooth to a paired tablet.

The included tablet is pre-installed with Hastec Rail software and provides a choice of wire designations used on Network Rail infrastructure. Once the user has selected the correct wire type and a reading is taken, the software will calculate the values and display on screen.

In addition, the optional Go-Pro mount and camera can enable OLE teams to take clear digital HD images of the contact wire that can be used as visual evidence of the condition of the contact wire.
