Speed-O-Controls Copperhead Rail Systems

Speed-O-Controls Copperhead Rail Systems

The copperhead conductor rail systems from Speed-O-Controls is made of a copper bar mounted onto a T-shaped steel section. The role of the copper bar is to transfer the electrical current while the T-bar provides greater strength and reliable electrical contact.

These are mostly used with cranes that are exposed to extremely high temperature, dust, corrosion and other adverse circumstances. The system supports current ranging from 300 to 3,000 Amps, which is enough to satisfy most cranes running at steel mills, heavy industrial plants, etc.
