Railtec: Derailment Protection

    The prevention of derailment is a priority issue. Wheel diagnosis at track speed is an essential requirement, because we don’t leave safety to chance.

    Our track-based systems measure the safety-relevant load status of a train and also detect force impacts which might be triggered by defective wheels. The measurement of noise emissions in compliance with standards helps rail companies to reduce disturbance in densely populated areas while identifying critical vehicle statuses in conjunction with measurements from defective wheels. The online measurement of vertical and lateral forces in loaded train sets helps to prevent derailment. Intelligent software solutions link on-track systems with higher-level control systems.
