Innovative railway switch heating.

Cutting-edge patented induction technology for fast, reliable and cost-effective operation under any conditions.

How it works
Why Indheater?

The fastest and most cost-effective points heater on the market!

Based on induction technology which provides fast and cost effective operation.

One of the biggest sources of disruption for a rail system in winter is weather related disturbances in points operation.

Snow or ice in the points often causes loss of switch function; this results in disrupted train services, unsatisfied customers and substantial costs for stakeholders.

There are several different methods of keeping points clear of snow and ice, ranging from manual sweeping and ice scraping to different systems for melting snow and ice. These are not reliable nor efficient. 

Indheater, with its induction technology, is the most efficient and functionally the safest system on the market.

Our solution is significantly more energy efficient than conventional systems that are based on resistive heating elements.

Keeps the train on time!
