Anticipate breakdowns and avoid unnecessary stops in service thanks to an integral knowledge of your units.
Do not invest excessive resources in rudimentary tasks that a monitoring system can perform automatically.
Do not settle for the usual information, increase the knowledge about your rolling stock without excessive expenses and find a way to optimize its use.
WHY STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS MONITORING?
The enormous and variable loads supported by the infrastructure causes wear and damage in the structure. What if we could avoid load tests and hard inspections?
Structural Dynamics monitoring is a new method of assessing the condition of existing elements in railway’s infrastructure. The solution is based on vibration monitoring data obtained from smart motors® sensors.
Monitoring the performance of the natural structure will allow you to take the required actions in a reasonable time.
Railway operation requires many different types of civil works and structures to ensure their reliability. Structural behavior is one of the main priorities for operators.
Structural dynamics is a solution focused on railway infrastructure maintenance. Designed to monitor different structural elements, such as railway bridges, rail superstructures, slopes or turnovers. This solution has changed the traditional maintenance approach of expensive load tests and inspections
3 axis vibration data displayed at different time period (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.) represented by main values (maximum, mean, minimum, FFT, tendence,etc.).
It provides the quality rating of the infrastructure by comparison of an ideal performance pattern.
By applying analytic algorithms, the collected data provide normal function patterns and behavior trends which allows breakdown prediction.
Reports and alarms
They are automatically generated so the operator will always be aware of any change and will be able to plan maintenance tasks to prevent hazardous situations.
Special sensors for structural dynamics
- It uses smart motors® signaling monitoring network architecture already in place, reducing installation costs.
- Adaptable to different types of infrastructures and dynamics behaviors.
- Accomplishing all certifications required in the railway’s environment.
- Check the data directly in smart motors® Digitalization platform, SAVANA, or any other destination that you prefer.
STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS INSTALLATION
Installation is simple. Sensors are placed on a previously studied location. The solution consists of three elements:
