Products & Services

  • AMS: Acoustic Monitoring Sensor
    Continuous monitoring of bearing health during train operations provides a valuable source of information for optimizing maintenance and overhaul intervals of wheelsets.
    WTP: Wireless Train Presence
    A non safety-critical wireless wayside system providing contact closure or 24vdc power supply to auxiliary systems needing advanced train presence wake up.
    HBD/HWD: Hot Bearing Detection and Hot Wheel Detection
    Reliably monitor the temperature of axle bearing boxes, wheel rims, and brake discs of passing trains up to 300 mph.
    WIM/WDD: Weighing in Motion and Wheel Defect Detection
    Besides detecting wheel defects the functions are used as a dynamic rail scale at the same time; vehicle weight and load distribution are monitored during every passage and an unbalance or overload can be identified in time.
