OCTOPUS - Wheel/Rail Interaction Diagnostic System
OCTOPUS is an on-board the train system designed to monitor the wheel/rail interaction, by measuring the accelerations of the train while running. It consists of several sensors, installed in different points, acquired with absolute synchrony and georeferenced by a GPS. OCTOPUS, when installed on-board trains that frequently run on the same routes, connects diagnostic elements to the points on the railway line, in order to obtain information on possible degradation of the railway line.
POWERVE - POrtable WEigher for Railway VEhicles
The right equalization of the vertical forces on wheels is fundamental to guarantee the proper running attitude of any rolling stock. POWERVE statically measures the vertical forces that each wheel loads at the wheel / rail interface. The unique system fully compliant with the EN 15654-2 and the EN 50215 (certified by ITALCERTIFER). Finally a portable solution with top class accuracy comparable with the best fixed weighing systems.
SWAN - Smart Wayside Accelerometric Network
SWAN is a WCM (Wheel Condition Monitoring) system characterized by : – high spatial resolution in the measurement of a wheel on the entire rolling circle footprint; – high repeatability of the measurement. These features allow for a regional railway: – to continuously monitor the health status of each wheel; – to plan the on-condition maintenance management in order to achieve predictive maintenance. Let’s reprofile wheels at the rightest time and optimize their lifespan!
