VSM-24 Mainline Switch Machine
Replacement for the Hitachi M-23 Switch
The VSM-24 electro-mechanical mainline switch machine is a full OEM direct drop-in replacement for the Hitachi M-23 switch. The VSM-24 is a competitive alternative for one of the most common switch machines in North America.
The VSM-24 is normally operated by electric motor, but it also has dual-control capability including hand throw and selector levers to allow manual operation. The VSM-24 also contains our improved Indication Circuit Controller (ICC), which has an indication design to provide lost motion of .010” or less.
The VSM-24 mainline switch machine components are completely interchangeable for use in OEM controllers eliminating the problem of having replacement components (OEM or Apex or Vossloh) that are not compatible.
VSM-24s are assembled per customer specifications, such as motor voltage requirements, gear ratios, wiring configurations, etc.
