Faster connection and reduced maintenance with BE-AR line of SPDs for wayside track equipment

Phoenix Contact’s new VAL-MS BE-AR line of surge protective devices (SPDs) modernizes lightning protection for the railroad industry. The BE-AR line combines advanced connection and hybrid surge protection technologies, reducing the cost of labor and unnecessary replacement parts for wayside track equipment and improving track uptime.

The BE-AR line of products provides significant advantages over existing American Association of Railroad (AAR) connection and protection practices in one easy-to-install solution. The BE-AR devices are four times faster to install and maintain than traditional AAR ice-cube-style SPDs.
