Insulated rail joint R-50

Insulated rail joint R-50 is designed to bind two sequentially laid rails, connecting them into a sturdy and continuous thread and completely blocking the electric current  between them.

Depending on the site of use, the isolating joint R-50 may perform the following functions:

  • Blocking the reverse current and, accordingly, protecting track construction elements from its infuence.
  • Logical and functional separation of different areas of the railway track. For example, conductive lines from non-conductive, or lines between each other.
  • Complete blocking of different-phase lines.

One set includes:

  • insulating plates for rails – 2 pieces;
  • rail end insulation gasket – 1 piece;
  • lock plates – 4 pieces;
