The ‘Heads Up’ Railcar Motion Detector is a new safety siren designed to give rail yard workers a warning if a car starts to move. The ‘Heads Up’ attaches magnetically to the bearing cap of any freight car wheel. For the same reason that forklift truck and other vehicles are equipped with beepers, the ‘Heads Up’ detector warns workers that a rail car is moving. When the car wheel turn more than 10 degrees in either direction, the battery-powered sensor emits a powerful 90 db two-tone warble. The siren has a baffle to moderate the sound level, and an illuminated on-off switch. The NEMA-4X housing is rain and dust-proof and all hardware is corrosion-resistant. A 9-volt replaceable battery provides 30 minutes of siren life. The ‘Heads Up’ weighs 1 pound and fits in the palm of the hand.
The Railcar Motion Sensor operates on 110-vAC and can detect a railcar, truck, or any other large, metallic, moving object up to 100 feet away from the sensor unit. The sensor is adjustable to mass and velocity and can be installed up to 1,000 feet away from the light and horn control box. The sensing unit is designed to be buried under the railroad track or roadway. NEMA-4 controls are standard, and explosion proof units are available.
