Our axle counter cable, manufactured in accordance with Network Rail's standard NR/L2/SIG/30060, is designed to connect the various elements of the AzLM Axle Counter System on railway networks. It is suitable for installation in trackside cable troughing, buried duct route and installed in open air on the ballast and clipped to sleepers as required.
Star quad types XQS and XQZ are used to connect the EAK Junction box or termination to the EAK (Mushroom) and Multi Twisted pair types XPS and XPZ are used to connect EAK to the ACE (Axle Counter Evaluator) equipment.
