Morris Line Pear Drive System – the Obvious Choice for Portals and TTC

Morris Line Engineering’s range of rail switchgear and isolators has been enhanced by the addition of the pear drive system; this system allows isolators to be safely and reliably mounted above the track on portals or TTC booms.

Since the pear drive launch, Morris Line Engineering has conducted a series of trials and on-site assessments, the results of these trials have led the company to recommend the pear drive for all applications requiring operation of Morris Line Engineering equipment at a distance over a portal or TTC. Morris Line Engineering do not support installations using pushpull tension rods due to their complexity and un-reliability.
