MiniProf Switch

The MiniProf Switch provides you with an easy and portable tool to monitor your rail profiles in switches and crossings. The included MiniProf Rail instrument can be detached and used for single rail measurements.

The MiniProf Switch measurements give precise information on the physical placement of multiple rails. Instant calculation of wear parameters enables you to optimise maintenance. The MiniProf Switch is just as useful in the quality control of new switches. In addition the MiniProf Switch can be acquired as an add-on for the standard MiniProf Rail instrument.

The MiniProf Switch addon extends a standard MiniProf Rail instrument to measure multiple profiles. It is attached magnetically and can optionally use a telescopic rod for reference to the opposite rail.

With the instrument, each rail in a switch or crossing is measured individually and then combined automatically using positional data from the Switch addon.

The result is a measurement containing all profiles placed relative to each other allowing measures to be taken between them.
