All aboard for a session about a real-time railway condition monitoring system that allows the implementation of predictive maintenance activities. Learn about its solutions, technical properties, and the results obtained from its application examples.
Instead of a non-real time maintenance strategy that only responds when (or after) a problem occurs, this railway condition monitoring system, called DS-xR, can determine real-time situations where operating conditions are abnormal based on vibration, temperature and speed data, as well as rail line track, traction motor and its bearing, wheel, gear box and axle box.
As a result, the system helps normalize operating conditions before problems occur or grow. Using this system can extend equipment lifetime, increase operation safety, optimize spare parts use, lower maintenance costs, and decrease maintenance time.
