Snyder Equipment: Supporting hardware for PTC systems

Snyder Equipment Co. Inc. provides supporting hardware for installation of PTC electronic systems on locomotives. Three basic support designs with corresponding accessories and fasteners allow railroads to integrate PTC technology into all styles of locomotives in the most efficient way possible and focus on the operational aspects of PTC technology that are critical to success, according to the company.

PTC hardware components from Snyder range include modular shelving systems, cabinets, doors, mounting hardware, adapting plates/brackets, and roof-mounted antenna boxes. All Snyder components are designed to provide secure support, — both physically and with respect to authorized access — while giving railroads the necessary flexibility to install PTC technology into spaces/areas on various locomotive models. Space-saving designs give railroad personnel the maximum working space available while allowing proper operational and maintenance access to PTC systems.
