New Smart Level Crossing in Switzerland

Posted by smart motors on Feb 1, 2018 2:38:59 PM
smart motors® collaborates in Switzerland in the installation of a new smart Level Crossing with the objective of improving the maintenance management.

In the frame of the collaboration between Intelis and smart motors®, it has been developed a new monitoring system for level crossing. This new system will be tested in a level crossing maintained by Intelis in Gland, Switzerland, in a rail line owned by SBB CFF FFS.

Level crossings are elements that generate insecurity and that receive an important effort on the part of the operator to avoid situations of insecurity and prevent accidents. In certain geographies, such as Spain, level crossings are being suppressed, but in others, such as Switzerland, the number of level crossings in relation to kilometers of tracks is still important (approximately 4300 ut). The solution designed by Intelis and smart motors® provides information to prevent breakdowns, aiming to optimize and rationalize maintenance costs as well as to prevent dangerous situations.

This solution, in addition to those already available in the smart motors® portfolio, focuses on real-time monitoring of the asset's status. In a second stage, that will be ready within a few months, a Front-End data visualization will be created. Also it will be provided with an artificial intelligence for the identification of failure trends of each element, information that will contribute to settle condition based maintenance calendars.

This smart Level Crossing offers a wide range of possibilities of data measured, digital and analogical inputs. In the pilot test, information regarding batteries, traffic signals, the programmable automat, axis countlers, among other, is included.

The know-how of smart motors® in this type of tools has made it possible to create a solution that adapts to different configurations of level crossings, suchs as: acoustic signals, light signals, barriers, track circuits, video cameras, axle counters, etc.

Wheel Detection Forum

Posted by smartmotors on Oct 16, 2017 6:16:48 PM
Smart Motors attended the Wheel Detection Forum that took place in Vienna, from the 4th of October till the 6th of October. The Forum, organised by Frauscher, had an appealing programme with presentations on the last trends in wheel detection, Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) and tracking technology. We value the experience very much and appreciate the possibility to get to know other companies that are leaders in the condition-based maintenance industry.

We congratulate Frauscher with the excellent organisation of the event!
