Impedance Bond Manufacturer

An impedance bond is an electrical component made of an iron core coil of low resistance and relatively high reactance. An impedance bond provides continuity between railroad, or transit, track circuits for AC and DC propulsion current. These mechanisms also distribute propulsion between two running rails.

On electrified railroads, impedance bonds are the most important component in railway signaling. The bonds are filled with oil or resin to provide moisture and corrosion protection, helping to cool the bond. To further aid in corrosion resistance, all hardware is either stainless steel or zinc plated.

Association of American Railroads (AAR) M-1003 Impedance Bonds

Badger Magnetics is an impedance bond manufacturer who designs, engineers, manufactures and reverse engineers bonds to meet all AAR Quality Assurances based on Specification M-1003. This assures all activities including manufacturing, procurement, identification of materials, stocking of materials and packaging and storing meet these documented standards.

General Construction of an Impedance Bond

  • Track coil and auxiliary coil wound on a magnetic circuit that is housed in a rugged enclosure
  • Oil or Resin filled
  • To achieve required impedance, bonds are tuned with Capacitors connected across the auxiliary coil
  • A completely self-contained manufactured unit

Badger Magnetics’ manufacturing practices meet all requirements for private railcar, freight car, locomotive and rail component suppliers and, are accepted by all North American Railroads in the United States of America, Canada and Mexico.
