MEASUREMENT OF VERTICAL FORCES ON WHEELS FOR PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE
The right equalization of vertical forces on wheels is fundamental to guarantee the proper rolling stock behaviour in operation. POWERVE statically measures vertical forces on each wheel load_at the wheel / rail interface.
Its excellent measurement performance, together with its light weight, portability, and ease of use, make it the ideal equipment to assess all parameters related to rolling stock balance, and comply with operation criteria. The high reproducibility and accuracy of measurements achieved by POWERVE make it the essential equipment to meet modern predictive maintenance targets in the railway industry.
- POW2X – made up of 2 Wheelset Kits (each Wheelset Kit measures the vertical forces of each wheel of the wheelset simultaneously) and 1 Control System.
- POW3X – made up of 3 Wheelset Kits and 1 Control System.
- POW4X – made up of 4 Wheelset Kits and 1 Control System.
- POW6X – made up of 6 Wheelset Kits and 1 Control System.
Many Wheelset Kits can be used together, up to a maximum of 6, with the same Control System.
