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 TRACK CIRCUIT MONITORING?
Currently, the management of track circuits requires a considerable investment in resources: staff, time, and workforce.
Digitalisation offers the possibility to start a continuous monitoring of the statuses of the assets.
Furthermore receiving information in real time has a great impact on the service availability.
There is a breakdown on a track circuit
What happens next?
Without a monitoring system, there is a lack of information that complicates the diagnosis and therefore the resolution. To receive data of the track circuit concerned and the adjacent track circuits at the moment of the breakdown eases the resolution.
Without information about the track circuit:
Complicate diagnosis. No diagnosis means high likeliness of repetition.
Long resolution time and high impact on the service
Lack of a base of Knowledge
The generated knowledge is neither collected nor shared.
No possibility of Prediction
Breakdowns cannot be predicted
- Real-time monitoring of track circuit main parameters (voltage, phase, frequency)
- Database with past information available
- Identification of failure symptoms
- Description of track circuits performance
- Behavior analysis of groups of adjacent track circuits
- Generation of alarms and descriptive reports in case of a breakdown
Benefits of Track circuit monitoring by smart motors on Operation
Which are the current challenges of track circuit maintenance?
Quantity and dispersion
High volume of track circuit scattered throughout the network
Wide range of models, ages, and operation modes
It requires many workforce and time and can only be performed during the night service interruption
Very tight maintenance budgets that do not allow for the realisation of planned maintenance works
How smart motors increases efficiency on track circuits maintenance?
Information about present and past behaviour of track circuits makes it possible to classify them according to their performance.
If there are not enough workforce to do the traditional preventive maintenance, take a look at the classification and chose the tracks circuits, lines or stations with a worst performance.
You can also settle your own preventive maintenance calendars according to the real MTBF and switch from preventive to condition based maintenance, to definitely save resources.
Now you have continued information of your track circuits. Take advantage of that and use it during maintenance tasks and avoid to do the measures manually.
