No longer a non-defective joint will mistakenly be displayed as defective


No more mistaken removal of faultless joints
The SICO 2046 does not indicate a faulty joint with colored LEDs or dial pointers as older
rail joint testers do, but it indicates the authentic resistance of the insulated rail joint
It can store the measured results in the tester
According to already existing insulated rail joint testers, the joint is defective when the
displayed resistance is <10 Ohm

In comparison to older testers the Insulated Rail Joint Tester SICO 2046 offers an innovative
solution providing true resistance measurements from insulated rail joints.
The solution is a current measurement with a separate current sensor, which is wound around
the rail joint. Only the current through the rail joint is measured. Parallel current paths close to
the insulated joint wont distort the current measurement. Thanks to its elaborate measuring
principle the tester separates the current flow from external portions, e.g. current from the
impedance bond, connecting line or ballast, and distinguishes between the actual resistance of
the joint and parallel loads.
The voltage is measured contactless, too; the resistance of only the rail joint is identified.

Even in case of rail to rail


short circuits the SICO
2046 displays a result of
>50 Ohm, when the joint
is not faulty.

The SICO 2046 displays a


result of >50 Ohm even in case
of parallel short circuits, when
the joint is not faulty.

Furthermore, bridged rail joints


can easily be tested without the
removal of connecting lines.

The tester is the main part of the


system SICO 2046.
It has a graphic display, which
reports measuring results and
instructions for the user in different
languages.
The robust plastic housing with its
large keys ensures a convenient
operation
during
all
outdoor
measurements.
A display heating ensures the
operation of the tester also at
temperatures below -15 C.
To save energy the tester shuts
itself down automatically after some
minutes of inactivity.

The V-sensor provides the measuring system with the voltage result of the tested insulated
rail joint. It measures the voltage contactless. Magnets in the high insulating plastic film help
to have a good permanent mechanical contact to the rail.
