Railroads

Since the early 1980's, we've helped railroad customers tackle their critical prime and back-up wayside power challenges with fully engineered and innovative solutions ranging from a few watts to several kilowatts. We can provide reliable prime & backup power systems for highway crossings, intermediate signals, control points, track circuits, slide fences, PTC upgrades, AEI devices, hot box detectors, switch machines, cameras & surveillance systems, telecom stations, and much more! 


Solar Power Systems

Railroad Solar Power Systems

Solar Power Systems provide a reliable and proven source of DC power by converting sunlight directly into electricity.  Solar Power Systems are a good fit for railroad wayside applications because they're very economical, require very little maintenance and have no ongoing fueling requirements. Over the years we've designed and offered a variety of system configurations to meet virtually any of your budget and/or site requirements.  Site surveys available.

RP Series Retractable Mast

RP Series Retractable Mast

Our innovative RP Series Retractable Mast is the industry's first retractable mast system that provides a safe and convenient solution for mounting solar arrays to a pole structure at ground level. The system can be raised and lowered via a hand-crank or power drill for safe and easy installation, maintenance and replacement.  Due to the fact that the Mast raises and lowers along the same axis, the system remains operational no matter what position its in.
