The HSM-17 is the second generation switch machine from the ARS engineering team. This machine also requires zero maintenance and comes in two configurations: 12V battery and 120-volt DC. With a throw time of less than half a second, and more throw force and durability than other units in this space, the HSM-17 is an industry game-changer.


The HSM-17 has the same key features as the YM-16, such as zero maintenance requirement, reliability and resiliency. The HSM-17 can be installed in any environment, including temperatures ranging from -50F to over 180F. The HSM-17 is trailable without damage, reducing the risk of derailment and machine downtime. This machine has one of the fastest throw times of any switch machine on the market, at about a half a second.
