UniAC[1] Axle Counting System

The axle counting system UniAC[1] offers secure and reliable wheel detection.

UniAC[1] is a complete system controlling the occupation status of rail sections and turnouts through the secure detection of passing railway vehicles. The wheel sensors in the corresponding rail section report the entry in or exit from the axle counting circuit by balancing the entering and leaving vehicle axles against each other while taking their direction into account. If the counting is consistent, the rail section will be reported as free. Otherwise, the section will be reported as occupied. The signal transmission of UniAC[1] is used additionally to monitor the correct operation of the wheel sensors. UniAC[1] can be installed without restrictions on open and covered tracks in shunting and depot yards, main lines and sidings, for railways and trams.
